Xanax And GrapefruitUpdated
What happens if you mix Xanax with grapefruit?
Sorry, I have removed the incorrect information to avoid future confusion.
Xanax DOES react with grapefruit, it increases the concentration of it in your body, which can result in your having to high a dose of the Xanax in your body for too long a period of time.
Grapefruit juice does interact with alprazolam (Xanax), but not to a great degree. The interaction typically is NOT considered dangerous for normal low to moderate dosage users. When is question, simply call the pharmacy that filled your prescription and ask. Or, ask your doctor.
think of grapefruit juice as an enzyme highway system for your body that just built more roads and since there is more roads to the brain, more can be metabolized. Rather than taking a bunch to get the same effect. Kind of like a poor mans way of increasing their dosage. But remember there are also drugs that would do the exact opposite effect with the 450 enzyme rendering the drug ineffective. Thats what I hope and you hope your doctor look at when they prescribe certain antibiotics etc and the big words here: cytochrome isoenzymes CYP #(letter)#, many grouped categories.
I just received Xanax from an online Pharmacy today. It was sealed. They are white and round with no marking. I looked online for pictures of generic Xanax and I saw what I have.
I took 1mg and it knocked me out for 4 hours. What about the calming effect and the ephoria feelings everyone is talking.about
I HAVE USED XANAX AND KLONOPIN, THE DIFFERANCE TO ME IS AS FOLLOWS, KLONOPIN IS PRIMARILY USED FOR PANIC ATTACKS, THUS VERY CALMING, XANAX IS USED MORE FOR DEPRESSION, AS IT HAS A BIT OF LIFT OR HIGH TO IT, HELPING GREATLY WITH DEPRESSION, I PREFER XANAX OVER KLONOPIN, AS KLONOPIN TENDS TO HAVE A SLOW DOWN EFFECT, NOT VERY HELPFUL IF ONE IS DEPRESSED, WITH XANAX THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE, HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL AND THANKS FOR READING.
I have been taking around 6-12 2 mg xanax for about 5 years and i am 29. brand name is a weee bit more potent but as long as u get a known brand u cant really tell the difference like sandoz, propac,mylan, the white ones one with 1 g 1 with 2 g's, i wouldnt trust any pills with no markings
What online pharmacy did you use #4? I have been looking for a SECURE one for a very long time and have not been brave enough to submit my card information.
I have been on Zanax since 1999 after I had a heart attack. When I asked my Doctor to go off of them he said that I still needed them.I have had no ill effects that I am aware of.I was 52 at the time .
i have been taking xanex for 5yrs for anxiety and it works great for me.
REPLY TO POST #4 :
If you want a calming/euphoric effect you need to go out with a friend crush a coupple of blue locarb-monster energy drinks, put yourself in a social situation, have 1 single alcoholic drink of choice and let the good times roll my friend. I do stress single drink because you better watch yourself especially if you dont weigh much. you could wake up the next day wondering how you got home, only to find out you insulted, maybe even assaulted, everybody who gave you a bad vibe, and f***ed or at least tried to f*** every one who gave you a good vibe. Or you could wake up in jail, or a hospital, or the afterlife.
Once you get past the sleepiness of the drug and gain tolerance, you will fell great euphoria and relaxation. I can not go to Walmart without it!
i have been a medication nurse in psychiatric facilities for over 20 years. I think that gives me some professionalism to drugs. I take Xanax to sleep, and occasionally when my 20 year old has smoked too much herb and is crashing into the walls. Keeps the peace in a world where so many are stressing out. I'm pretty mellow, but there are times it all comes down and hits me too fast. Sort of like stopping an emotional Tsunami. Going with the flow, letting go, the only way to go. Enough of my bad poetry...stay cool
What you say is true...EXCEPT, you didn't mention the 1/2 life of the drugs. Xanax (12-18 hrs) Klonopin (30-50 hrs). The shorter half life makes you want them sooner ( the tendency becomes more habitual with a short half -life, addiction, or abuse.
I would like to know if there is such a xanax pill with a yellow color and oval in shape?
My girlfriend goes to a shrink he prescribes her something for bipolor disorder. OCD. I don't what this illness is called but she's afaid to leave the house because she thinks everybody on the street is staring and judging her and she also has extreme panic attacks. She told her Dr. and he put her on .5mg of klonopin about 3 month ago needless to say, it really isn't working anymore only if she takes 4 .5mg klonopins will they do the trick. She was thinking of asking her Dr. if she could change to 2mg xanax. It;s not like she's faking everything is her file from when she was 11yrs old she's now 27NRJQN
for #15, it is called Agoraphobia-Agoraphobic, thats when you are afraid of leaving your home. I have it myself, except i can go out as long as someone i know well is with me!
whered you get that online and are they legit?
ive been having trouble with safe online pharmacy. can you please help me out and tell me the website you received your prescription from? i would really appreciate it, thanks.
It slightly intensifies the effect of Xanax.
I've been on antianxiety meds for 12 years and find that Xanax works the best for me, although I am now up to 5mg. a day and started at 2mg. When I'm panicking, I chew my Xanax and it kicks it in about 10 minutes. I haven't trying bumping it up with grapefruit juice but I might. I have agoraphobia and Xanax is the only way I can go out at all.

I have taken Xanax and grapefruit juice together before, and it gave me a more relaxed feeling. It was totally by accident that I had found this out so I researched it and Wallah!
Actually Jerry, Xanax is used primarily for panic attacks. Benzos are generally used to treat anxiety, not depression.
Actually Xanax was formulated for and used for panic attacks. Benzos are not use to treat depression but anxiety.
Ya got some fake ones bud, probably pressed with sleeping meds. I've been got myself
For #14...yes there are yellow oval-shaped xanax. I was prescribed them and the dose was 0.5mg. hope that helps answer your question!
Yes half mg they are yellow and oval and they say s 90 3 on them
To somewhat answer your question xanax reacts differently on people. Some get a calming effect, some pass out for hours, some act a fool, some turn into thieves stealing everything in sight when they're on them... When i take xanax i get the same effect as what you described. Pass out sleep for hours, hard to wake up, leaving me no energy and borderline lethargic... Alcohol is super dangerous when mixed with xanax and can cause respiratory failure leading to death so be careful....Hope this kinda helped.
What if youre using clonazepam for anxiety? The slow down effect is great for anxiety.
So you're saying grapefruit juice makes the xanax stronger ?
The reason u didn't feel the calming or euphoric effect is because if you're not used to taking it, it will knock u out. After taking it for a couple of days, your body gets used to it and then you will feel the way you want. I don't know about euphoric but it will calm you down.
