Pretty dope benzo. It is mainly used as a anti-anxiety medication but its affects make it commonly abused. It will relax you and make you not care about the little things in life that stress you out, for example your house could be burning down, wife is cheating on you, and a bear is chewing on your leg and while on xanax you are at peace. You don't feel depressed or stressed and thus it allows you to sleep. Greatest sleep aid ever but continued use will get you dependent on it and the effects tend to be less dramatic as continued use rises. Think Office Space
Bob: *House is burning down around him* Ah life is good I'm so relaxed I think Ill go for a walk with the dog.
Basically xanax is like being the main character in the movie Office space after the hypnosis session, you will feel great.
