In a world where there's seemingly a pill for everything, one pill in particular is taking the world by storm. They're known on the streets as bennies, downers, ludes and Christmas trees but to the average person the more common name is Xanax.

One of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the U.S. there's estimates as high as 25-30% of the population will suffer from an anxiety disorder at some point  in their life. Knowing when to take a pill, and when to simply take a step back is perhaps the toughest part for many people.
