How bad is | Benzo addiction and withdrawal?
Xanax® addiction is a significant problem in homes across America. Many Xanax users are not aware of their physical and psychological dependence until they try to stop. Once they try to stop they feel panicked and overwhelming anxiety. The irony here is unbelievable. You take Xanax to alleviate anxiety and when you try to stop you go through unbearable anxiety attacks.
Physicians treat symptoms – that’s their job. You can’t blame the physician who is required by law to treat people’s symptoms. But if that same person goes doctor shopping or takes more than their prescription allows then Xanax use has then gravitated to Xanax abuse. Over time Xanax abuse eventually becomes Xanax addiction. Xanax addiction detox is the best solution to treat of Xanax withdrawals.
