Does Zoloft have the same effect as Xanax?
16 Sep 2010
Although they belong to different group of drug class they both can be used for certain specific "conditions", zoloft as anti depressant has a wider spectrum for treatment of more disorders than xanax. And it is not addictive , although, like most medications, both have benefits, risks, and withdrawals.
Now xanax being a benzodiazepine, is highly addictive (many people abuse this substance), I take it and when I forget or miss a dose, I immediately feel withdrawal symptoms. Plus I have to take 6 mg Extended Release due to the short life span of the drug.
Sertraline is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Sertraline affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
Sertraline is used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
Alprazolam is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines . Alprazolam affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety.
Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression.
One last recomendation, if you decide which one to take with your Doctorsa dvise , never ever mix them with alcohol, very dangerous.-
I hope I have been of help.-
