Xanax Overview

Alprazolam, available under the trade name Xanax, is a potent, short-acting benzodiazepine anxiolytic—a minor tranquilizer.[2] It is commonly used for the treatment of anxiety disorders, especially of panic disorder, but also in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or social anxiety disorder.[3][4] It was the 12th most prescribed medicine in the United States in 2010.[5] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor.

Find A Doctor in Pittsburgh PA that prescribes xanax or klonopin that takes medical assistance
64 Replies RSS Share
Every doc I've met with here in Pittsburgh Pa will only take cash if they prescribe you xanax.. Very unethical but since I have insurance I would like to find a doctor to prescribe me the meds I need. I would take either although I like the Klonopin better, xanax cause my depression to worsen after I take them... Anyone know of any Psychiatrists that will take my insurance and prescribe me meds? ## The state medical insurance has very strict regulations regarding why a doctor may prescribe controlled substances, such as Xanax or Klonopin, which are Benzodiazepines. Thus, the doctor's have to go through a lot of paperwork and can get in a lot of trouble, if the state feels that something is out of line. Learn more Benzodiazepine details here. There is nothing that mandates that t...

i was floored when i saw him sprinkling something in my drink. i said WTF are you doing? I knew it! he had been telling me how much fun we had been having and I couldn't remember a single thing. and i found myself sleeping till 12:30 or 1:30 on weekends, and i never do that. sleeping in till 7:00am is late for me. Not sure what he was putting in there. he said zanex, but i dont know for sure. ## It's time to find a divorce attorney. ## Xanax wouldn't work like that, unless he used a very large amount of it, which you would notice and taste in a drink. However, what does work like that is Rohypnol, which contains the active ingredient Flunitrazepam, it's also been dubbed the 'date rape drug'. Learn more Flunitrazepam details here.

How Strong Is A Xanax G3722
22 Replies RSS Share
Just want to know how strong it is? I only weight 110 pounds. ## Hi andrea, G 372 2 is identified as Xanax (Alprazolam) 2 mg. I can only imagine that the 2mg tablets are going to be pretty potent if you've never taken Xanax before; as 2mg is a high dose of this particular drug. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure would be to try it; simply because these medications can affect each individual differently. If you find that 2mgs is too strong, you can always divide the pill into smaller doses to help assess your tolerance. I hope this helps! ## u should be pretty good those ones are not to strong ## THEY DONT WORK ## Never take more then two.. A half of one will relax you and one full one is strong especially if u plan on driving ## 2 Two Mg Bars at once and driving advice to b...

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
590 Replies RSS Share
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

I can like 5 take blue footballs and be out cold. But none of thsee have the same effect. At all. There's something in them cus I'm not going through the w/d. But how do you tell the fakes from the real? Is there a test? I read something about someone using "Sprite" - is there something in that realm? I'm so tired of wasting hundreds of dollars off two people I know for sure I can't tell. I know for sure a pharmacist won't be able to do anything right?

7 Replies RSS Share
The anxiety my wife suffers from her autism keeps her from living a normal life. It is so hard to watch her suffer, every noise hurts her, she cant leave the house almost ever and is in bed to several weeks a month, in our bedroom with the door shut and the lights off. She also suffers from panick attacks as a result, I found her curled up under the counter the other night. She trys so hard every minute of every day to use the techniques she has learned and practiced through therepy and research. She has put thousands of hours into research on autism in addition to therepy. She has found cognative behavioral therepy to be the best so far, atleast her version of it. We moved from Alabama just over a year ago to the Sacramento CA area, it is very difficult to get her to go to the Dr. We h...
