Farmapram is categorized as a benzodiazepine or benzo. These medications work by depressing the central nervous system which has a calming effect on the brain. They are more commonly known as minor tranquilizers or sedatives. In this post, we’ll review the main Farmapram effects and its comparison with Xanax.
Consult with our mental health expert regarding the best medication to treat your anxiety.
How Farmapram Works?
Benzodiazepines enhance the activity of GABA receptors. The ingredients of the Farmapram pill bind with the receptors, which has the effect of calming down impulses that cause anxiety. Without benzos, the impulses would cross over to the connectors that relay messages to the brain. Benzos reduce the number of messages that go from the receptors to the other part of the brain. The process is repeated until feelings of stress or anxiety are decreased and eventually stopped until the next dose is taken. The following table shows the conditions the medication is used to treat and typical dosages:

Differences Between Farmapram 2 mg vs Xanax 2 mg
There is no difference in terms of effect. Alprazolam is the active ingredient found in both. The Farmapram (alprazolam) 2 mg pill works the same as a 2 mg pill of Xanax.
However, different dosages are prescribed depending on individual health problems and factors like age, weight, and any other health conditions. To treat depression, adult patients are typically started on a prescription of 0.5 mg fast-acting disintegrating tablets. Depending on how a patient responds, the dosage may be increased to mg to be taken twice or thrice daily. Again, a patient’s response will determine if the right dosage is prescribed. It may be increased again but a prescription will never exceed 4.5 mg. A strong dose should be taken in the form of extended-release tablets that are swallowed whole and not chewed, broken, or crushed.
The same approach is taken if a patient is being treated for anxiety disorders. A patient will typically be started on a low-strength prescription that may be increased depending on their response. Patients with anxiety disorders can get a prescription of up to 10 mg a day.
Can Farmapram or Xanax Be Taken in the U.S.?
Many patients ask: “Is Farmapram FDA-approved?” The answer is that the brand name Farmapram is not approved by the FDA in the U.S. However, its active ingredient (generic) alprazolam is available in the U.S. as well as another brand name Xanax. The one difference is that U.S drug manufacturer Pfizer makes Xanax while Mexican drug company Ifa Celtic manufactures Farmapram pills.
Farmapram is a benzodiazepine and a Schedule IV drug. It is therefore only available for purchase with a valid doctor’s prescription. This is the case not only in the U.S. but in many other countries. It is also classified as a
