In actually, Xanax has bad withdrawal effects
as well. In layman's terms
, xanax helps the brain fire through the nuerotransmitters a certain way...by stopping the use of the med., that 'spark' the med creates for the brain is missing, therefore many complications may occur. Not too familiar w/ them, but I witnessed a friend seizure from not having his xanax, which is a possible side effect of this med. NOT trying to scare you, just inform.
