Xanax Allergic Reactions and Xanax Side Effects

Some of the Xanax side effects that have been documented are not as serious as some of the side effects other medications generate. It is, however, still advisable to take heed since there are a few rare but rather serious Xanax side effects that may be viewed as a real threat to a person's life and wellbeing and knowing what these are may help save a life. Of course, the best thing to do is to check with your doctor and see if Xanax is suitable for you. The more common Xanax side effects that you may encounter include dry mouth, bad dreams, nausea and difficulty in urinating.

Xanax is a type of medication that is used to help treat mental health problems like anxiety, panic attacks and other similar problems and some of the Xanax side effects that may emerge can also have something to do with mental health like the side effect of depression and mood swings. Also included in the list of more common Xanax side effects are headaches and a marked decrease in a person's libido.

Some of the more serious Xanax side effects that may require immediate medical attention include throat and mouth sores, rashes, and hallucination and vision changes. Also included in the list of Xanax side effects that may require a person to immediately stop taking Xanax and may need a trip to a medical facility are the yellowing of a person's eyes and skin as well as allergic reactions to the medication itself. Allergic reactions to Xanax may be one of many manifestations that include the swelling of some of the parts of the face, like the lips or the tongue, the closing up of the throat and difficulty in breathing. All these warrant the help of a medical professional and an immediate stop of the medication in question.
