Re: Xanax and Klonopin. Madness! Franz

I stand corrected.

I did a little web searching and found two studies (on rats) which showed an effect on brain serotonin levels. The first study stated that the effect was statistically insignificant. In the second rats were given 1.25 mg/kg of xanax and a statistically significant increase in brain serotonin levels was found. The second also reported that in habituated rats there was no effect on brain serotonin levels, however.

Perhaps the latter study explains the mild "rush" one gets from taking xanax in a drug naive state, and lack thereof when at steady state.

Cheers,

Britt
