Make The Better Choice And Choose Cannabis Over Xanax
The side effects of dangerous prescription medicines have led people to seek a safer, better alternatives. Here’s why you should choose cannabis over Xanax.
Recent studies show millions of people around the world are now on more medication than ever before. Whether because of medical issues, mental health, or everyday problems that seem insurmountable, the trend is on the rise, and the biggest culprit are Benzodiazepines or more popular by its illicit name, Xanax. The interactions and side effects of these dangerous prescriptions have led people on a wild goose chase to find relief. So can cannabis really be an answer?
If you have ever dealt with anxiety, then you have probably looked at taking Alprazolam, also know as Xanax. The most frequently prescribed benzodiazepine in the US, it is more than popular. It is an epidemic. Over 49 million prescriptions were written in 2011 alone. Used for panic disorders, phobias, and anxieties, the short-term effects can benefit many people. The long-term effects, on the other hand, can be devastating.
Xanax is dangerous, and highly addictive, both psychologically and physically, even at regular doses. It impairs cognition, speech, and motor function. Even short-term side effects can include:
- Dry mouth
- Memory problems
- Sexual impotence
- & Drooling, to name a few
Long-term effects leave people with psychotic experiences, delirium, cognitive deficits, depression, and aggression. Overdose can occur not just with too much, but with taking a normal dose after a break in use. An overdose can lead to respiratory depression or even a coma. Why would you ever want to take it?
Cannabis vs Xanax
Cannabis as a medical treatment is becoming more popular, not just for severe medical issues, but treating anxiety and depression as well. It relaxes the body and mind, has no significant long-term side effects, and is impossible to overdose on. It is the much healthier and safer alternative in virtually every instance.
Cannabis can relieve anxiety for many people. For some, however, especially new patients or those taking higher doses, it can cause it. In that instance, someone used to prescription pills might consider taking Xanax to level out. Don’t do it!
