How Xanax Work

In 2014 over 18% of Americans were diagnosed with some form of depression ranging from bipolar to social anxiety, common treatment for depression is the administration of the drug Zanuck. Zanuck is a member of the drug class called, benzodiazepines which are used to treat depression because of their anti anxiety and sedative effects. Zanuck specifically relieves depression symptoms by affecting the GABA receptor in our brain, normally a neurotransmitter called GABA binds moderately well to the gaba receptor when gaba binds to the gaba receptor it allows a small amount of chloride ions to flow through the ion channel however when taking Xanax, Xanax binds to the receptor and changes its shape causing the gaba neurotransmitter,to bind longer to the receptor because gaba is now bound longer more chloride, ions flow through the receptor ion channel this in turn causes inhibition of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis which causes stress relief as well as a large release of dopamine in the,body causing a relaxation and set it to,feeling happy.
