Yes: That means there should not be noticeable differences between taking the two together, compared with taking the two at separate times. ...Read more

How horrible is dropping 4 mg of Xanax on the liver at one time?

How horrible is dropping 4 mg of Xanax on the liver at one time?

Not usually toxic: A one time dose at that level is not usually toxic, unless there are other factors involved (other meds, prior liver disease, etc.). It might be very sedating, especially if combined with other drugs or alcohol, or if the person taking it isn't used to Xanax, because that is a high dose, generally. This could be dangerous. ...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, 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

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

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

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

Xanax: Probably unsafe with breastfeeding, talking about just one dose, believe you don't really need it badly, can look for an alternative, its maximum half life in the nody is ~20 hours, so it can stay for up to 2 days, better avoid it, take care ...Read more

How long/how many days does it take for 0.25 mg doses of Xanax to start taking affect and make one feel relaxed, calm, and less anxious?

How long/how many days does it take for 0.25 mg doses of Xanax to start taking affect and make one feel relaxed, calm, and less anxious?

Xanax not working : The benzodiazepine (e.g. Xanax) naive patient should feel the effect within the hour. Individuals are unique and depending on one's pharmacogenetics/liver metabolism of medications, the medication may work for some but as well for others. The prescribing physician should be informed. More importantly, non-medicinal modalities & non-habit forming medications should be attempted first. ...Read more

Went from 2 mg a day of Xanax to 1 mg in a little over a month. I find it easier to split the tablet in half. Take one half in the morning and one early evening. I want to continue tapering down. How can I taper more with a 1mg tablet?

Xanax taper: EricF ~ this all hinges on how long you have been taking xanax 2mg and why. If it has been a short period and for minor social anxiety, then you can taper very fast, if at all. So the 1mg can immed go to 0.5mg and then 5-7 days later stop. The longer you have been on it the more fastidious the taper. From what you say I think you can taper quickly, but always discuss with treating physician ...Read more

It should be ok: as long as you have not taken any since then and wait until the alcohol has worn off to take any more. ...Read more
