Is it possible to get high off one generic Xanax (alprazolam) s900?

Xanax (alprazolam): Using xanax (alprazolam) that is not prescribed for you is both dangerous and illegal. When used appropriately after a thorough evaluation, it can be safe and effective. If it's you who's using xanax (alprazolam) for a "high" rather than its indicated use, I join my colleague in suggesting you discuss this with your own physician & consider substance abuse treatment. ...Read more

Alprazolam (Definition)

Alprazolam is a short acting benzodiazepine, it does not last long in the system. So when used regularly with multiple doses to treat anxiety, it is associated with inter-dose withdrawal, tolerance and a resulting increase level of baseline anxiety.

How many mg of temazepam will equal the high of one xanax (alprazolam)?

How many mg of temazepam will equal the high of one xanax (alprazolam)?

Not comparable: Your question doesn't make sense on 2 levels. First, we'd need to know the mg of xanax (alprazolam) we're comparing to temazepam. More important, "highs" from different drugs are not comparable. Although both are benzodiazepines, temazepam is very sedating, Alprazolam isn't. They'll never be "equal." and neither is safe to take to get high. ...Read more

I took a blue xanax (alprazolam) today (sun) I weigh 135 and high metabolism, will this still show up in my urine on friday. I've never taken one before?

I took a blue xanax (alprazolam) today (sun) I weigh 135 and high metabolism, will this still show up in my urine on friday. I've never taken one before?

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 4-7 days. Barring any additional use of Xanax, (alprazolam) the chances are good that the screen will be negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Butalbital: Withdrawal is minimal at this dose and you've been experiencing it every day as a single dose will not last 24 hours. If you are wanting to be sure this does not occur you can check an EEG first and switch to butalbital without the caffeine and cut it in half for a week ...Read more

Can half of a 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) still get me high?

Sure: Even a sugar pill (placebo) can get you high. The subjective effects of drugs are highly influenced by "set" (expectations and existing feelings) and "setting" (environment). 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) is definitely a psychoactive dose, but even if it wasn't you might still feel high. Unfortunately, Xanax is also highly addictive and dangerous if mixed with other CNS depressants like alcohol. ...Read more

How much Xanax (alprazolam) do you need to take to get high?

Give me a break!: Why do you expect a doctor to tell you how you can hurt yourself? This is a prescription drug meant for people with serious underlying anxiety disorders, and not for a 31 year old who is still acting like a teenager. I wouldn't give a teenager the answer to that question, and I will not give it to you. You need to look at your emotional life and why you need to escape it, and get some help. ...Read more

Xanax (alprazolam) and drug tests: Hi

i will assume you are asking this for drug screening. If not, I apologize. But xanax (alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine and can be picked up on drug screens for some time. You may be fortunate in that with only one dose you may not test positive as long as others who take this regularly. But, any drug screening done soon may most likely be positive. ...Read more

Been taking. 5mg of Xanax (alprazolam) twice a day for one week. Am I addicted at this point?

Not necessarily: Just because you have been taking Xanax (alprazolam) for a week doesn't mean you are addicted. Addiction is when someone becomes depdent on the drug, physically and/or psychologically. When you are addicted, you may develop tolerance to the drug, may require higher and higher doses, withdraw if stopped, and misuse the drug to get the effect you want even if the use is compromising your daily function. ...Read more

I just took one and a half of Xanax (alprazolam) but I feel nothing. Shouldn't I feel something?

Xanax (alprazolam): What are you looking to feel -- a buzz, or relief of anxiety? Xanax (alprazolam) may not produce signs of intoxication if that's what you're seeking. You have also not said how strong your xanax (alprazolam) pills are, whether they're new to you, whether you've been using other benzodiazepines or alcohol, etc. Please talk with your physician about this -- s/he may provide a better answer since s/he knows your history. ...Read more

Xanax (alprazolam) and anxiety: You would not be in withdrawal from xanax (alprazolam) after only 1 dose. However, it's possible to have a paradoxical agitated (rather than relaxed) reaction. If you've been taking xanax (alprazolam) regularly and then stop, you can have withdrawal symptoms that overlap with the symptoms you might have from anxiety itself. Extreme anxiety can also be part of a withdrawal syndrome. ...Read more

Can the blue round Xanax (alprazolam) be better then the football one?

Better how?: Xanax (alprazolam) is the same drug in whatever pill it happens to be in. There are brand name and generic forms, but they are all required to be approximately equal in their content. The blue oval forms and the blue round ones are both 1 mg and they are the same. I do not like Xanax and do not prescribe it. It has a high abuse potential, and there are better alternatives to treat anxiety. ...Read more

If I took 1 mg Xanax (alprazolam) on thues at 3am and never have taken one before will I pass a drug test on friday at 3pm?

Depends...: Depends on how long the xanax (alprazolam) stays in your system, which can vary from person to person. The half-life 6.3 to 26.9 hours. It can take 5.5 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from your system entirely, so that means that xanax (alprazolam) might be detectable as long as 147.95 hours which translates to 6 days. So if Thues = Tuesday and your test is on that Friday it "could" still be detected. ...Read more

I have taken 4. 25 Xanax (alprazolam) over the course of the day as my anxiety has been high. This won't make me overdose right?

Right? Wrong!: This is a very high dose. How many mgs do you normally take daily? If you have high tolerance for drug, you may be ok. But you are really playing with fire. Talk with prescriber re drug. Seeing a psychologist for tx along with drug tx appears to be a safer way to handle extreme anxiety. Take good care of yourself. ...Read more

Dangerous practice: Your "friend" sounds committed to self-destruction -- is she interested in help? Have you spoken with her about your observations? I notice that your own medication list includes both Alprazolam (generic xanax), xanax, (alprazolam) and lorcet. So, I wonder if you're asking about yourself rather than a "friend." if this is the case, please talk with your doctor -- you can get addiction medicine help! ...Read more
