Too many drugs here: The combination of all this medication is not a good option in my opinion and I don't believe increasing doses of any individual one of these will help you sleep any better. I like the idea of working toward nonpharmacological ways to approach your insomnia before using all these agents. Again, speaking to your doctor before changing would be best but ultimately, I think for you, LESS is MORE. ...Read more

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

I have a friend who takes 12 of the 2 mg Xanax bars in one day she's highly addictive and i need to find out some way i can help her?

I have a friend who takes 12 of the 2 mg Xanax bars in one day she's highly addictive and i need to find out some way i can help her?

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

Is it acceptable to take 0.5 MG of xanax (one time) and continue to breastfeed as normal following the dose? I primarily pump breast milk.

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
