Alprazolam Micro Pellets MUPS
Alprazolam is a potent short-acting drug of the benzodiazepine class. Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA gamma-amino-butyric acid receptor.
It is primarily used to treat moderate to severe anxiety disorders (e.g., social anxiety disorder) and panic attacks. It is available in an immediate-release and an extended-release (Xanax XR) preparation, both of which are available under several generic names. Alprazolam possesses anxiolytic,sedative, hypnotic, skeletal muscle relaxant, anticonvulsant, and amnestic properties.
Alprazolam has a fast onset of symptom relief (within the first week). It is unlikely to produce dependency or abuse. No tolerance has been reported, but withdrawal and rebound symptoms necessitate a gradual reduction in dosage to minimize withdrawal effects when discontinuing.
It is a C IV controlled substance by the DEA. Based on findings in the US from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), an annual compilation of patient characteristics in substance abuse treatment facilities in the United States, admissions due to "primary tranquilizer" (including, but not limited to, benzodiazepine-type) drug use increased 79% from 1992 to 2002. Thus, the DAWN and TEDS data sets demonstrate clearly that the misuse of these sedative/hypnotics is on the rise, and cause for concern. Alprazolam is the most prescribed and the most abused benzodiazepine in the US.
