Zanax is the brand name for alprazolam, a prescription medication that has been shown to provide short-term relief of anxiety symptoms.

For the estimated 3 million adults in North America who suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder or Panic Disorder, Zanax has become a reliable and useful treatment that can provide relief as early as the first day of use.

Manufactured by Pfizer Inc., Zanax belongs to a class of anti-anxiety medications called benzodiazepines.

Zanax is also effective in the management of Agoraphobia - fear of public places - that is often associated with Panic Disorder.

However, Zanax is a powerful medication that is not prescribed for relief of stress or tensions associated with everyday living.

What is Zanax XR?

Zanax XR is a once daily formulation of alprazolam tablets that allows patients to take a single daily dose, rather than the three or four doses taken each day with a regular Zanax prescription.

Zanax XR is typically prescribed for patients suffering from Panic Disorder.
