Potential causes for delayed alleviation
LaurieShay states that Xanax is rapidly assimilated and usually takes between one to two hours to achieve maximum blood levels. Nevertheless, smokers may encounter a decrease in Xanax levels of up to 50% compared to non-smokers. Moreover, individuals who have been using Xanax for an extended period may have built up a tolerance, which could give the impression that it takes longer to become effective. Another potential explanation is that the individual has a slow metabolism.
How to Proceed If Xanax Isn’t Effective
If an individual does not feel any relief from taking Xanax in a brief period, they should get in touch with their doctor or psychiatrist. The healthcare professional may assess the individual’s medication and either raise the dosage or suggest a different medication. It’s crucial to adhere to the doctor’s advice and not modify the dosage without their supervision.
Best wishes to those who are searching for a way to alleviate anxiety or other ailments that Xanax can help with. Stay safe.
