Neurons of the brain, known as gamma receptors, are responsible for feelings of anxiety, fear, etc. When these gamma receptors are too active, they are said to self-destroy. Xanax helps to reduce the number of lost gamma receptors. Slowing the combustion of gamma receptors helps induce a sense of calm over panic. The fact that the drug (and other benzodiazepines Ativan, blisters, Klonopin) work so quickly explains why these drugs are physically and psychologically addictive.
