Xanny

noun; clipping
a slang term for the anxiety medication drug, Xanax
 
Xanax, which sounds very medical and professional, was clipped to xanny, which sounds much more approachable. This gives the term a more informal or endearing feel, making it easier to talk about; this is especially useful for the demographic the term is associated with: young people with anxiety issues.
Etymology : Clipping of the term Xanax, with -y ending to give the word a friendlier feel.
