All people affected by Xanax (alprazolam)1 addiction have diagnosable symptoms of an officially defined condition called sedative, hypnotic and anxiolytic (SHA) use disorder2. The terms of this disorder include the addicted use of sedative, hypnotic and anxiety-reducing medications (sometimes known as tranquilizers), as well damaging, non-addicted medication abuse. The SHA-use disorder diagnosis includes both types of substance problems because overlapping symptoms of addiction and abuse are not uncommon.
Doctors making an SHA-use disorder diagnosis also look for indicators of non-addicted abuse that include recurring intake of the medication in situations capable of producing physical harm to society or to yourself, continued misuse of the medication after Xanax-related conflicts with loved ones and a pattern of intake that reduces your ability to meet major obligations.
People who misuse Xanax may also develop other problems that point to addiction or serious non-addicted abuse. The list of potential issues includes3:
Even when used at doctor-sanctioned doses, Xanax can trigger changes in your brain that lead to a state of physical dependence. Dependent people feel compelled to take the medication in order to feel “normal.” However, unlike people addicted to the medication, they maintain control over their intake and (with the help of a doctor) avoid exposure to negative changes in their social lives and physical and mental health.
