So, a human body consists of a chemical compound which is the neurotransmitter that is responsible for neurotransmission. Simply put, it operates as a chemical messenger between one neuron to the target neuron. We have a more or less 100 neurotransmitters in our body, and one of the major neurotransmitters is gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter, in the central nervous system of a mammal. In humans, GABA lessens the stimulation and excitability hence used by patients suffering from most common psychological disorders. It pacifies the patient’s central nervous system.
Also, it is authenticated that activation of the GABA receptors favor sleep. This is exactly what a Xanax bar does, it activates the release of GABA receptor hence mitigates the effect in individuals having anxiety disorders. Oral forms of Xanax are recommended for short-term treatment of severe anxiety along with insomnia. Long-term use is not advised since Xanax is said to cause dependability.
