Symptoms and Warning Signs of Xanax Abuse
Xanax is prescribed as pills and intended to be orally taken but users might also crush it, snort it, or inject in. Sometimes people do not realize they are addicted to it because their doctor prescribed it. However, if you notice unusual behavior, they can’t function with the drug, constantly needing it even when the prescription isn’t ready to be filled, or they are visiting multiple doctors for multiple prescriptions, also know as “doctor shopping.”
Doctor shopping is just one of the signs of Xanax addiction. They can range from short-term to long-term and physical and/or mental. These are some signs you or your loved one may be addicted to benzodiazepines.
