Questions and Answers
im just wondering, is xanax dangerous if a person takes about 30 of them?
& can it cause death in overdose?
30 5 mg Xanax will put you in a coma from which you may or may not come out of. In my younger days I had a friend who took 15 10mg’s. This was a Tuesday. He called on Saturday and thought it was Wednesday, had been comatose for three days and was convinced it was Wednesday.
Xanax is another name for Vallium, 30 tabs of any dosage is likely to cause sufficient system depression to kill a person.
If it doesn’t you’ll wake up in a loopy daze and may suffer some serious loss of mental capacity, don’t do it.
Is drinking one beer while taking xanax bad? I don’t abuse alcohol, but enjoy a beer a day. Is is dangerous?
I understand that Xanax and aclohol can be a dangerous mix. But is that only if you abuse alcohol? I drink 1 beer a night to help with sleep, and that is all I ever drink. I am on a .5mg 3 times a day for panic disorder and General Anxiety Disorder. Is that 1 beer dangerous? Or is it only dangerous if I were to get sloshed which I never do…
Unless you have a bizarre allergic reaction to this combination you will be fine. Doctors regularly prescribed xanax and other benzodiazepines to people who have a glass of wine with dinner or a beer while watching the game. It sounds like you are comfortable with your dose of xanax so you should be absolutely fine with a beer.
Please keep in mind that the mix of xanax and alcohol is quite pleasurable to many people and the desire to abuse either drug may arise. Stick to your plan, don’t double dose, and get some sleep!
why do so many people abuse xanax?
it seems to be REALY popular for some reason.
what does it realy do anyways? i heard that it DOESNT even cause euphoria.
so wahts the big deal? and what is the recreational dose for xanax? cause i know that the highest precribed dose is 2mg.
Xanax and other benzodiazepines MAY create a sense of well being, of less worry, etc., but I definitely do not think they cause euphoria. This is a subject very close to me because I have a severe anxiety disorder and many people think that Xanax and similar drugs are only used to “get high” and that “everyone gets addicted”. The truth of the matter is, a person only truly gets addicted if he or she is doing it recreationally. A person who needs the medication for a valid reason generally does not abuse it. That person’s body may become “dependent” on the medication and have to wean off it to reduce side effects, but that is markedly different from abuse. The highest prescribed dose is NOT 2mg. You may be looking at the pills and seeing that the most potent pill is usually 2mg. That does NOT mean that is the largest dose. Far from it. Xanax is a short acting benzo so it is out of the system quickly. It is not at all uncommon for dosages to go very high. The newer time released Xanax XR is causing Xanax to become more competitive with longer acting benzos. As far as the “recreational” dose? That would depend on the user, and for most people who truly do drugs, Xanax is not going to be something they crave. There is no “high”, there is simply a relief of anxiety. If a person takes more than he or she is accustomed to, you’ll simply go to sleep, so I really don’t know why anyone would choose to abuse Xanax except to possibly bring themselves down from other drugs. Bad idea all around. It is an excellent drug for people who need it, for recreational users, please stop giving a good med a bad name!
Xanax, Prozac abuse.?
People constantly abuse the prescription drug xanax to get “twisted”. I was wondering if you could also get like that off of prozac. I am asking because my friend is addicted to pills and she asked me. I don’t really know anything about them because I don’t do them but I was just wondering. I don’t need your comments or opinions, just facts.. Thank you!
Prozac has a very low to non-existent abuse potential. I was prescribed the drug for three years
My spouse take xanax for anxiety disorder. I have never know his personality change on it. Can a teen abuse it
and if they did abuse the stuff wouldn’t it just knock them out. Trying to decide if we need a padlock on our door to keep teens and older kids from taking it. I didn’t think it would do anything other than make you sleepy. Have been told a little different. Thanks.
Xanax will make you sleepy if you really aren’t having anxiety at the moment you take them. If you have a safe, hide the drugs in the safe. The bathroom and leaving them around is the worst place for your teens to get ahold of them. I promise whatever is around they will try, doesn’t matter if it’s legal or illegal. The prescription drugs are the ones you have to watch teens on moreso because they are readily available in family med cabinets.
Xanax is habit forming, meaning once the body has reached it therapeutic level, it needs more of the xanax to feel the same feeling the lower dosage had previously made them feel. This would take at least a week of consistent ingestion.
Be really careful with this medication. It can also cause mood swings, which is one of the most common side effects. You’ll know if the teen is acting strange if they are still taking drugs, too. Just pay attention to small details.

what is the meaning of xanax abuse..when is to much to much??
Xanax is a depressant, used primarily for short term relief of mild to moderate anxiety, nervous tension, acute stress, and panic attacks.
Xanax is only approved by the FDA for up to 8 weeks of use and it is only approved for only 4 weeks of use in Great Britain. This is because it is extremely addictive. The greater the dose taken, the faster one becomes dependant. If one uses these drugs long term, the body will develop tolerance for the drugs, and larger doses will be needed to achieve the same initial effects. In addition, continued use can lead to physical dependence and – when use is reduced or stopped the body goes through.
My co worker is taking xanax, what does that do if you abuse it?
What does it feel like?
Alprazolam (or Xanax) is really a poor choice of drug use….regular or excessive use Alprazolam can lead to dependence and addiction.
Alprazolam is widely prescribed in the U.S. for anxiety disorder, panic attacks, sleeplessness, and sometimes for short-term relief of extreme stress. It is classified as a benzodiazepine.
Primary effects include euphoria, drowsiness, sedation, a decrease in social inhibitions, and intense relaxation.
Effects are generally felt 20-40 minutes after oral ingestion (faster via sublingual), although it can take up to an hour to feel the full effects.
Alprazolam is considered a “short-acting” benzodiazepine. Users report that the effects of the drug last from 2 to 6 hours with lingering after-effects of several more hours.
Side effects may include drowsiness, dizziness, clumsiness, loss of muscle coordination, amnesia, dry mouth, headache, vivid dreams, and changes in libido.
The way it feels?….thats a different story
ABA is the nervous system’s primary inhibitory neurotransmitter, found in the brain and spinal cord. GABA tells the neurons that it contacts to slow down or stop firing, and this has a general calming and quieting effect on the brain.
