Overdosage : Needs to g to ER, this is clearly an over dose, especially the xanax, which moreover would interact inadvertently with the neurontin causing CNS depression, even if he is tolerant to either drug, good luck ...Read more

I haven't took a kholnopin since Monday night I have a Xanax (alprazolam) bar will it do the same thing and what will be equvillant to a .5 clonzaemp?

Better not: It's not desirable to mix and match Klonopin and Xanax (alprazolam). You should only take medications, especially controlled drugs like benzos such as Klonopin and Xanax (alprazolam), that have been prescribed for you and only take them as prescribed. If the Klonopin was prescribed for you then what you should do is contact that doctor and see if s/he wants you to keep on taking it and will give you a script for it. ...Read more

I have a friend who takes 12 of the 2 mg Xanax (alprazolam) 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 (alprazolam) 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, (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

My friend took 7 xanax (alprazolam) bars (2mg's) with in a time spand of 24 hours. How many days will it take for his body to flush (detox) them out?

Danger: That is a potentially lethal amount, especially if combined with something else, like alcohol. It has a half-life of only a few hours, so he may not be harmed. But he is lucky. I hope he finds help pronto, whether he attempted actual suicide or just took a risk. ...Read more

Is a 2mg klonopin about the same strength as 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) bar?

Is a 2mg klonopin about the same strength as 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) bar?

no.: Klonopin and xanax are two related, but different medications. Klonopin is clonazepam, a long lasting medicine. Xanax is alprazolam, a fairly short acting medicine for anxiety. Klonopin is generally considered about twice as potent as xanax. You need to have your medication choice and dosage carefully evaluated and monitored by your treating physician, and consult with him or her about this. ...Read more

2 mg Xanax (alprazolam) bar. Have urine test in 6 days.. what are odds of passing?

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, (alprazolam) the chances are good that the screen will be negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I took about 4 10 mg valiums and 1 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) bar together for 4 days, same dose of meds each day.I have a drug test in 16 days.Will i pass or fail?

I took about 4 10 mg valiums and 1 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) bar together for 4 days, same dose of meds each day.I have a drug test in 16 days.Will i pass or fail?

Pass: If you are not a chronic user and this was a one time thing, most likely you will pass. If you are taking the valium daily, it can stay in your system for up to 30 days. It is dangerous to take these two drugs together if this is not a prescription and under close supervision of a doctor. They work in the same way and can exacerbate the sedative effects. Please enter treatment if addiction. ...Read more

2mg. Xanax (alprazolam) bars are available in white, yellow, and green. I've found the yellow, and especially the green, longer acting.  What's the difference?

Different colors: Several companies produce Alprazolam (xanax) -- the color of their 2 mg "bars" differs. There could be different fillers in each, but the 2 mg Alprazolam itself should be the same in them. If your supply is not by prescription, you have no assurance about the contents or colors. ...Read more

See your doctor : Stopping opiates if you are addicted is difficult. Being motivated is the first requirement. However it usually takes help. Make this attempt count! Please see your family doctor.
