Blue football Xanax is a prescription drug, that is, it cannot be gotten from a pharmacy as an over-the-counter drug, but only with a prescription. This is because it is a drug that can be easily abused and may lead to serious consequences in an event that it is abused. It is therefore classified as a controlled substance in the Schedule 4 category.

How does Blue Football Xanax Work?

Blue football Xanax is used to treat panic, anxiety, and depression. Therefore, it works by impeding the action of some chemicals in the brain and making the reception of certain information by the nerves, from the brain, less effective. This way, the symptoms attached to panic, anxiety, and depression is brought under control.

In the human body, the brain produces stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) to help us cope with short term anxiety. The stress hormones help to improve our alertness and increases our heartbeat. Once the event is over, the level of stress hormone in the body subsides. However, individuals with anxiety disorder do not have them for the short term, they constantly fixate on the possibility of an unfavourable outcome of events. Do their brains trigger constant production of stress hormones every time?

A part of the brain called the Amygdala is responsible for sensing and alerting other parts of the brain about an impending danger. This message of doom is what triggers the production of stress hormones. In individuals with an anxiety disorder (which can lead to depression), continuous production of these hormones has an adverse effect on their body such as dementia, and even depression.

Blue football Xanax helps to calm the nerves that send the message of impending danger to other parts of the brain, in order to stop the unnecessary production of the stress hormones, which may eventually cause neuro-issues later in life. It essentially encourages the production of a calming chemical in the brain, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), to neutralize the excitement in the brain.
