Xanax bars can make you feel euphoric or “high,” especially at high doses. That’s why some people abuse them. Xanax abuse occurs when you take the drug in a manner not prescribed by your doctor. 

For example, someone might take more bars than prescribed or take them without a prescription. 

People who abuse alprazolam often become addicted to it. Frequent Xanax use, even as prescribed by a doctor, can also cause Xanax addiction. Thus, most medical professionals prescribe the drug only for short-term or occasional use to prevent or treat panic attacks.
