Most medicines do have some sort of side effects even if you dont know about it. Especially the sedatives like alprazolam. But occasional dose of Alprazolam 0.25 mg at night wont have any long term side effects. You can also take Zolfresh 1 tab at bedtime.But please know that although an occasional dose may not have long term side effects,regular use of sedatives/anxiolytics etc do have side effects.No drug is without side effects.
