Ksalol is a type of Xanax (Alprazolam) in Bosnia & Herzegowina, Serbia and other eastern European countries. It has been identified as containing Alprazolam 1 mg.

Are there any other precautions or warnings for this medication?

These factors may affect how you should use this medication.
Alcohol and other medications that cause drowsiness: People taking this medication should not combine it with alcohol and avoid combining it with other medications, such as narcotic pain relievers, that cause drowsiness. Doing so can cause additive drowsiness and reduced breathing as well as other side effects, which can be dangerous and possibly fatal.
Dependence and withdrawal: Physical dependence (a need to take regular doses to prevent physical symptoms) has been associated with benzodiazepines such as Ksalol Xanax pill. Severe withdrawal symptoms may be experienced if the dose is significantly reduced or suddenly discontinued. These symptoms include seizures, irritability, nervousness, sleep problems, agitation, tremors, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting, memory impairment, headache, muscle pain, extreme anxiety, tension, restlessness, and confusion. Reducing the dose gradually, under medical supervision, can help prevent or decrease these withdrawal symptoms.
Because the treatment of panic disorder often requires the use of average daily doses of alprazolam above 3 mg, the risk of dependence among people with panic disorder may be higher among those treated for less severe anxiety.
Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Ksalol pill may affect the mental or physical abilities needed to drive or operate machinery. Do not engage in activities requiring mental alertness, judgment, and physical coordination until you have established how Ksalol alprazolam affects you.
