dont be a fool.

just because your friends are doing something stupid, doesnt mean you have to.

I had to learn that the hard way. Dont let yourself get into trouble with drugs just because it’s popular “now”.

I have been in jail because of xanax.

I have seen people lose their jobs and house because of xanax

I know people have had used harder barbituates because of xanax as a pill poppers gateway drug, and wound up dead.

If you want to take it, no one can really stop you but you, the police, or the grim reaper. So it’s up to you? Who do you want to listen to?

Heres how it feels to take xanax.

1.You get dizzy and very relaxed.
2.You become sleepy and disoriented
3.If you dont pass out, you wind up making an ass out of yourself because your inhibitions have been masked by the drug.
4.Your brain loses all coordination and decision making skills so you wind up not caring about anything including yourself, or anyone.
5.You lose MOST if not all of your memories during the experience, and possibly some before and after the drug has worn off, and eventually you will lose memory period.
6.You get addicted, and in trouble, or dead.

Dont do something like this over a girl/boy. The opposite sex doesnt know what they’re doing either, and if you want to be cool, you should try saying no and helping your friends do the same. Thats whats really cool.

and by cool… i mean being a stone groove type of motha lova.

so do whats right…and say no to drugs.

I have a policy of never preaching or judging about drug use. But here are some facts.

Xanax “bars” are 2 mg tablets not 1 mg tablets.

Xanax is a benzodiazepine class drug used to treat anxiety disorders, acute anxiety states, and panic disorder with or without agoraphobia. The maximum dose is 4 mg/day for anxiety disorders or an acute anxiety states. The maximum dose is 10 mg/day when treating panic disorder. And doctors can prescribe more as they see fit.

Xanax can cause physical and/or psychological dependency.

Xanax is a controlled substance under international and national laws. It is a schedule IV drug internationally, and it is schedule IV in Canada, Australia, and The United States. It is a class C drug in The United Kingdom.

It is the most prescribed benzodiazepine in The United States and the most abused. But since it is prescribed more it is logical it is abused more.

Xanax and other benzodiazepines are among the safest drugs in an overdose situation but ONLY WHEN TAKEN ALONE. When benzodiazepines are mixed with drugs like alcohol, opioids, or barbiturates they often cause major medical problems, including death.

1-2 mg can not kill a person unless they have a severely allergic reaction and go into anaphylactic shock or are on other drugs.

Xanax addiction is very rare and most people who are diagnosed with either substance abuse or substance dependence (there are two technical medical terms indicating a different severity) are primarily using opioids (narcotics) like OxyContin, Heroin, Morphine, and Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab, Norco). Most people who abuse Xanax has a history (or family history) of substance abuse. Physical dependence is a very common occurrence when Xanax is used legally or illegally. However physical dependence alone does not indicate substance abuse. Most people using Xanax for a legitamite medical reason will develop physical dependence if they take Xanax long term and/or at large doses. That only means that the drug would have to be stopped slowly. However if psychical dependence occurs due to abuse it is likely more severe. And withdrawal from Xanax can cause serious problems, even death.

Basically Xanax is safe to take (but not with other drugs) but recreational use can cause problems. But taking a single Xanax will not kill or cause major problems.

The person who answered and abused Xanax is giving you a rare example of a terrible horror story. It is unlikely for that to occur and it was a bit dogamtic and had a lot of of fear mongering. And most people who become addicted to Xanax are, like I said, also addicted to opioids. But the other group most likely to develop addiction are middle class, white, and living in Suburbia. And those people often abuse prescription opioids (OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet, Codeine), other tranquilizers (Ativan, Valium, Klonopin) and sleeping pills (Restoril, Ambien) with Xanax.

I am not at all recommending to use Xanax bit I would rather you know facts about it and make an informed decision rather than a guess or from anything sensationalized.
