Going to Detox for Xanax Withdrawal Pains
Alprazolam, also known as Xanax is a short-acting benzodiazepine frequently used for its sedative effects. Doctors usually prescribe it to help treat medical conditions, such as anxiety, panic disorders or social anxiety disorders.
The problem with Xanax is that when patients take it repeatedly or without prescription, they can get hooked on its sedating effects. Pain relief can quickly turn into abuse.
The body absorbs the substance quickly and sends it to the brain’s tissue, leading to reinforcement and therefore inducing severe addiction. That is the reason why Alprazolam holds the title for one of the most addictive benzodiazepine anxiolytics in the United States.
How Do People Safely Taper off This Drug?
Given the harmful consequences of repeated use for a prolonged period, people should not try to taper of this drug alone as this action can lead to serious health consequences. Instead, they should seek medical advice and look for a specialized facility that can help them go through the withdrawal process safely.
At a rehab facility, a team of professionals will assess the patient’s health condition and level of addiction and decide whether they should take medication to help the detox process.
During the detoxification phase, patients may face severe withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Mild dysphoria
- Abdominal cramps
- Muscle cramps
Throughout the process, physicians may administer small doses of Xanax to suppress withdrawal symptoms and prevent additional seizures. After the patient manages to flush the drug out of their bodies, they may find it difficult to re-establish social and real-life connections. That’s why rehab facilities also offer special therapies that help patients take control over their lives.
What Medications Can Help Treat Withdrawal Symptoms?
To avoid some of the most severe withdrawal symptoms that occur during the detoxification process, experts often utilize a slow-taper detox program. This treatment consists of smaller amounts of Xanax or other benzodiazepines administered over time. For example, the doctor may prescribe an equivalent dosage of a long-acting benzodiazepine such as diazepam (Valium). While tapering the dosage, diazepam allows an efficient extraction and slow decline in concentration, thus, eliminating the drug in the process.
Several studies have found that Carbamazepine (an anticonvulsant and antiepileptic substance) may also work for people struggling with Xanax addiction.
It is essential to avoid mood stabilizers, antidepressants and even vitamins like D, B or magnesium. Some of them may be harmful and exacerbate the withdrawal symptoms.
Is It Smart to Stop Using This Drug Cold Turkey?
Facing critical situations, people may find it very logical to stop using the drug immediately. Although this may seem like a good solution on the short run, it can pose a serious threat to the patient’s life. Due to the intensity of withdrawal, patients can suffer from seizures and end up in a coma.
Patients who want to overcome their addiction should do it safely in a specialized center. They can also enroll in an outpatient program where they can achieve favorable results under the strict and constant supervision of professionals.
Are Rapid Detox Programs an Option?
A rapid detox program is an accelerated detoxification treatment that the patient can complete in about eight days. The patient is injected or receives a subcutaneous infusion of Flumazenil, a substance that alleviates the withdrawal symptoms while also removing the benzodiazepine from the body.
Before considering rapid detox programs as an option people should be aware of the following:
- Patients should have a specialist for ongoing therapy after detoxification
- Patients should have a close friend or family member for support during treatment
It is important to mention that rapid detox programs may have some side effects. In about 1-3% of patients, this treatment is associated with seizures when treating an overdose.
How Can a Medical Detox Program Help?
First of all, choosing a medical detox program is a significant step against drug addiction. Often, rehabilitation may last from 30 to 90 days beginning with the inpatient program. During this program, the patient is carefully monitored and under constant surveillance. Various painful symptoms such as depression, heart palpitations, and extreme anxiety may occur through the withdrawal process.
