What does xanny mean?


Xanny means "Xanax," which is the brand name for a tranquilizer scientifically known as Alprazolam. It is typically seen online and in text messages.

The term became popular in the late-2010s, partially due to Billie Eilish's "Xanny" song, which she released on March 29, 2019. It is the third song on her When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? album. The song was critical of her contemporaries' drug use.

Xanny may be used for medicinal purposes where tranquilization is required to reduce anxiety. Or it may be used recreationally, to enhance or reduce the effects of other drugs, such as LSD, opioids, heroin, and cannabis.

The most prevalent xanny users are teenagers or young adults at a high school or college party looking for a "high." Xanny is also common in the Hip Hop club scene.
