Xanax And Depression
Xanax does not treat depression. However, in some cases, it is a person's depression that causes their anxiety or panic attacks. So in these cases, a person suffering from depression might take Xanax. But the Xanax is not being prescribed to treat the depression.
Some research about Xanax and depression indicates that Xanax actually causes depression. Xanax affects chemicals in the brain, and there is a chance it could worsen a person's chemical imbalance, which could lead to depression.
No matter why you are taking Xanax, it is important to talk to your doctor about any side effects you might experience.
