Yellow Xanax is a benzodiazepine that is used for the treatment of anxiety and panic disorders. The FDA approved the drug for anxiety disorders in the 1990s and subsequently listed it in prescription drugs and controlled substances. It is a higher strength of Xanax, also known as Alprazolam, with the generic name of Alprazolam 2 mg being the highest available strength. Thus, caution should be taken when using Yellow Xanax.
Why it is known as Yellow Xanax
This variation of Xanax comes in a rectangular bar shape, which is yellow in color and has R039 written on it. This is why it is referred to as Yellow Xanax. It contains 2 mg strength of Alprazolam and has the street name of a yellow school bus, Z bars, and footballs.
The benefits of Yellow Xanax for anxiety
For people who have anxiety disorders, Xanax is a highly beneficial drug as it increases the amount of GABA receptors, which are less in these people. It produces relaxation, relieves anxiety, makes one calm, and creates delights. Furthermore, it may have the same effects on those who do not have anxiety disorders by altering certain natural chemicals inside the central nervous system. However, non-medical usage of Yellow Xanax may cause different side effects.
Side effects of recreational usage
Non-medical or recreational usage of Xanax may cause various side effects which may be more severe and frequent than prescribed treatment. If any of these side effects occur, medical help should be sought: nausea, sedation, fatigue, clammy hands, loss of coordination, headache, confusion, euphoria, loss of libido, irritability, addiction or habit. These symptoms may occur after long term non-medical usage and higher doses can cause side effects more quickly.
Xanax abuse and addiction
Yellow Xanax abuse and addiction are not intentional in medical usage and many people build dependency after taking a prescription for Xanax. Long term usage can lead to dependence and drug tolerance, requiring higher doses to feel the effects of the drug. However, treatment for Xanax addiction is possible and medical help should be sought if a habit of taking R039 pills has been developed.
Finding help for Xanax addiction
If one or someone they know has a drug addiction, help should be sought. It is never too late to seek treatment for Xanax addiction and there is help and hope on the other side of dependence which can be found.
