Took a .25 mg. alprazolam (Xanax) and one tums, is that safe to take together?

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

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

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

If i took 1 mg Xanax 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 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 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
