The administration of the anti-anxiety drug xanax would yield suitable results only when you are consistent in your xanax regimen but altogether while taking xanax, you are likely to encounter certain xanax effects such as tremors, bewilderment, headache, giddiness et al. These xanax side-effects are temporary only but whenever you encounter them, you should approach a doctor immediately.
