I want to know if alprazolam 0.25 mg is more powerful than topiramate 50 mg.

Cannot compare: 0.25 is a very lose dose of alprazolam as is 50 mg of topiramate so overall neither is very powerful. However, considering their different mechanisms of action of therapeutic effects, it would be difficult to compare the efficacies of the doses of these two different drugs. ...Read more

Too short a 1/2 life: Most sedatives (including alcohol) whose blood level drops fairly rapidly may help you to fall asleep but may interfere with staying asleep. Benzodiazepines (such as alprazolam), are pregnancy category d, meaning there is evidence of fetal risk. It would be useful to know the cause of your sleep difficulty - ?Anxiety, ?Depression, ? Poor sleep hygiene, ?Pain, ? Sleep apnea - to guide treament. ...Read more

Sedative-Hypnotic: It's also called xanax. It's a sedative-hypnotic med, a member of the benzodiazepine class of drugs (as is valium, for instance). It is most often used for anxiety/panic attacks, sleep, muscle relaxation, etc. 0.25mg is a very low dose. Talk to your mom if you're concerned. Your concern for her welfare may be just as therapeutic as the pills! be tactful, given you don't know why she's using it :). ...Read more

Can you stop taking 0.25 mg dose Alprazolam taken for several yrs w/o withdrawal problems.. ?

MD should guide you: If you have been taking alprazolam routinely you should taper off of the medication slowly and with the guidance of your doctor to avoid withdrawal issues. That should both minimize your body's adjustment to the discontinuation of alprazolam and allow any anxiety issues previously treated by the alprazolam to be identified and treated in another manner. ...Read more

How long do the effects of alprazolam 25 mg work last in system?

How long do the effects of alprazolam 25 mg work last in system?

depends: First of all, i think you are talking about 0.25 mg. 25 mg is a totally different game. If your buddy was not exposed to Alprazolam ( you did not develop tolerance) then it might work for 4 to 6 hours. You are lucky if more. If your question is about how long can Alprazolam be detected in the urine drug screen – it is totally another story. At least 2 to 3 weeks. Even more, depending on the test. ...Read more

I took 3 two mg alprazolam two days in a row and have a drug test in 7 days in your opinion will i pass the test i am 21 and 160lbs?

Odds are favorable : It depends on the sensitivity of the screening test. It also depends on your overall health, condition of your liver and whether or not other drugs are competing for metabolism. In general, the shorter acting benzodiazepines are cleared from the body within a week. Barring any additional use of Xanax, the chances are good that the screen will be negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more
