What Is Farmapram Alprazolam, and What Is It Used for?

August 16, 2021
Farmapram Alprazolam Uses


In the U.S, Farmapram is known as Alprazolam, its generic name. The drug is usually sold under the brand name Xanax. Farmapram is the common name for the drug in Mexico. Pfizer, a U.S-based company, supplies the white rectangular pill sold as Xanax. Farmapram contains the same ingredient as Xanax but is produced by IFA Celtics in Mexico.

Farmapram Alprazolam belongs to a class of medicines known as benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines enhance the effects of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that reduces your brain’s nerve activity.

Nerves transmit messages to the brain and other body parts using neurotransmitters. When the amount of GABA is reduced, this means that your nerves send more signals and make you hyperactive. The reverse happens when the amount of GABA is increased.

In the U.S, the DEA considers Farmapram Alprazolam a Schedule IV Controlled Substance. This classification is because of the risk of addiction, diversion, and misuse associated with the drug. Like other benzodiazepines, the drug has a risk of abuse, withdrawal reactions, and physical dependence because of its effect on the brain.
