Alprazolam is a medication sold under various generic names, such as Xanax. It is an anxiolytic that belongs to the class of benzodiazepines. Anxiolytics are principally used to treat cases of anxiety and panic, reducing the intensity and occurrence of these stressful episodes. They are also prescribed in the treatment of alcoholism, helping the patient wean himself from the addictive substance (in this case, alcohol).
