I have had a couple on occasion, prescribed by Dr. Mom. They make me sleepy. What do they do for people that makes them worth stealing/abusing? et c.?

Bump. Anybody know why somebody would risk jail to get drowsy with this crap when C-Span runs all night?

They're a benzo.

Some people get addicted to them.

Hilarity ensues.

They are a benzodiazepine class anxiolytic. In lay speak, they are chill pills.
Why do people like to drink or do drugs? Because they like the way it makes them feel.

if you start to take them.
keep it under control.
Highly addictive .
what ever you do don't quit cold turkey, you then will have a chemical imbalance.
which will surely screw w/you.

I used to work at a drug rehab treatment center. Heroin and Xanex addicts would usually bolt from treatment after a couple of days without.

Gimme a good ole' Quaalude anyday.

Wow. I guess there's a buzz for every taste.

My experience with them has been limited to my saintly mother saying "You look tired. Have you been sleeping?"

"Not much."

"Here. Take this about 8:00."

"Yes, ma'am."

. . . . tick tock. . . 8 PM . . . *swallow*. . . 8:15. . .*yawn*. . . 8:22. . .*ZZZZZzzzzZZZZZZzzzzz.*

I understand other drugs. I guess Xanax must make some people euphoric or something. I just don't see the allure of something that in my experience just makes you sleepy - unless you want to go to sleep.

Thanks for the information.

So then at 8:25 you won't hear the tapping on your window. Works for me.

2 mg Xanax and a 6 pack of beer.
Hang on for the ride.

I've done some duuuumb shit in my day, the Xanax period was one of them.
But goddamn it was fun.

Think of it as a chill pill on steroids. Your just the easiest goin, happiest most laid back guy in the world.
Downside is you dont remember a damn thing. You can party all night long on them, crash and the next day you wont remember ANYTHING.
Took my friend out partying on them one time, we ended up with a group of girls. I left to get beer, he was partying by himself with 6 hot chics.
He didnt score, and the next day when I asked him if he hooked up with any of the chics he looks me in the eye and dead serious asks "Whats girls?"

Damn college was fun.

= trouble

High doses of benzo's have an amnesic effect , small doses of benzo's and ETOH also have an amnesic effect. I always preferred to remember having fun.One time I took some xanax, drank some vodka, and settled down to watch the telly...... I woke up about 5 hours later and looked down at my hand to see an entire cigarette ash still hanging on the butt, it was curved down toward the floor but I had been so still that it didn't break off. I may have actually been a ZOMBIE for 5 hours, scary especially now that I now all ar15.commers want to shoot zombies

+1. Benzos are VERY safe, right up to when you mix them with alcohol. At that point, it becomes a sort of crap shoot as to whether or not your respiration will continue on its own.

My wife and her Dad and his Mom all take Xanax, well, my wife doesn't anymore, but her dad and grandma live on them. They're all so highstrung 24 hours a day, Xanax makes them normal. When I tried them all it did was put me to sleep. When mixed with beer, that was another story.

I'm already a very laid back person, so if I were to have a choice, I'd take Opioid's over a Xanax style pill anyday.

larger quantities and alcohol change things a bit. I advise not to experiment with such cocktails.

I was perscribed them in June of this year for panic/anxiety attacks (have been to the ER 3 times for them before this). They have saved me numerous times. When I feel one coming on I'll take 1-2mg's and 15 minutes later, be myself again. I do feel some dependency on them, as I will usually take 1/2mg during the weekdays around 12-2pm when I start feeling anxious. I can get by on the weekends without them though as I can sleep in and am not occupied with doing a million things a minute, like at work. My brother has friends who get them illegally and do abuse them, more of a party drug. They'll take 2mg's, a couple beers and a joint,,, that'd probably kill me if I ever tried.

They do intensify alcohol. Even 1mg with 6-8 drinks will make you not remember the night before. I did that once, and only once. Ended up waking up on my friends couch infront of about 10 bucks worth of taco bell. When I woke up I didn't know where I was and I didn't even remember eating taco bell the night before.

People use chemicals to alter their reality, be they drugs or liquor, because they are weak and should be culled from the herd.

Why is it so hard to believe?

Standard dose for panic disorder is 10mg.

WAY more than for other uses. And they live.

My mom got prescribed Xanax back in the early 80's and got hooked pretty bad. She finally had to go into detox to get off of them. She's been off them for 20 years now. Bad shit, man. Bad shit.

Xanax is an anti-anxiety tranquilizer, not a sleep aid. Sleepiness is a listed side effect and overdose indicator/warning.

BTW: Is there a reason you are misusing Rx drugs that were prescribed to your mother? Is the diversion and misuse of Rx drugs legal in your state?

If you need a sleep aid go see your doctor and get a prescription of your own. But please dont drive or handle firearms while taking sleep aids or your moms Xanax.

I live in a free state where anything your mother says is good for you is perfectly legal, as long as she's not Ma Barker. All kidding aside, I am close to fanatical about guns and intoxicants: if you're around me, you may choose one or the other, but I ain't sticking around if both are in play.

Was the Xanax being used to take the edge off the crack, or was the crack being used to keep the Xanax from knocking him out?

Either way, that sounds awful.
