Yes. Yes, yes, yes.
What to do if I have been addicted to Xanax (alprazolam) for about 3 years, illegally. Will mhmr help me get off them?
Addiction. Good that u seem motivated to seek help. Commitment to treatment is vital.
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.
2 - 3 days.. Peak concentrations in the blood occur in one to two hours after taking. Plasma levels are proportionate to the dose given. The mean plasma elimination half-life of Alprazolam has been found to be about 11.2 hours in healthy adults. Five half-lives = a little over 50 hours until it's pretty much cleared your system. (from wikipedia).. Thus, you could test positive on drug screen for 2 - 3 days.
Not long. Several hours will get rid of the medication. A day at most after 1 dose.
Withdrawal Benzo's. There are several options for you. But, first let me congratulate you on this step. If you have been using these drugs for a length of time or using them heavily you may need to be medically monitored during your early withdrawal. But, then there are drug treatment programs both inpatient and outpatient that will keep you sober for a time...At least enough time to learn about addiction.
Treatment program. I commend you for recognizing that you. Are addicted. Stopping abruptly can be very serious. You need to taper using a longer acting benzo under supervision of addiction specialist and the support of a treatment program.
I'm prescribed xanax (alprazolam) 10mg the yellow bar pill can't take a whole one can I take a piece n still get the same affect?
Check with doctor. Xanax (alprazolam) doesn't come in 10 mg strength of bar or tablet. You probably have the 2 mg bar scored to be easily taken in lesser amounts. Check with prescribing doctor to clarify what is the best dose if you can't take the whole bar. Take care.
