Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.
Xanax is a benzodiazapine which increases the amount of the neurotransmitter in the brain called GABA. This chemical messenger naturally slows down messages in the brain including anxiety
messages. Xanax not create GABA but instead allows it to remain available to the neurons that use it, slowing responses like anxiety.
The part of the brain that is mostly impacted by Xanax is called the pre frontal cortex. This part of the brain is responsible for our focus and control. This part works in conjunction with another part of the brain called the cingulate gyrus. Together, these help level out our arousal responses.
Xanax can greatly impact your short term memory, and because it is addictive, it has to be weaned off slowly, most often under a doctor's supervision. Once you are weaned off Xanax (if you are on it now), it should be safe to take other medications.
I hope this has helped you,
