Hello Americano. The effects of Xanax may be at their full potency for 4 hours, but the medication’s half-life is a lengthy 11 hours. So, your blood levels of Xanax are stable for a long time, or until you take the next pill. This may be causing the effects of the medication to last a bit longer for you, who don’t have built up any tolerance to Xanax yet. Plus, Xanax treatment is usually initiated at 0.25 mg or 0.5 mg, especially for people who are taking it for the first time.
