I was prescribed Xanax a few days ago. I'm having a pretty bad night. I haven't been able to sleep in days.. I'm thinking of taking one.



Will it just calm my mind a bit or will it mess me up? I can't be all fucked up since ya know kids and all in the house.

I took one of my aunts a couple weeks ago and it just made me lethargic, and I just wanted to sleep the day away.

How much did they prescribe you to take? I've never been prescribed it but when I have only taken 2 mgs of it, I black out and don't know what I'm doing....

"0.5 mg twice daily as needed"

I take a very small dose, just 0.25mg before bed because I take Adderall. It doesn't make me sleepy but it allows me to get sleepy, if that makes aaaaany sense at all lol.

That's a pretty substantial dose.

You might start with 0.25mg and see how you do. My doctor started me with 0.50mg and it wasn't over the top, I just found I didn't need that much.

I will do that if I muster up the courage to take one. I need to be coherent

Be careful taking them, for sure. My brother was taking the amount the doctor prescribed him and almost died from overdosing.
My mom is addicted to them and she's 53. I hate those pills.



Probably not what you wanted to read, but yeah.



I would just take like half a one or something.

My sister is addicted to them, also.

I know they're addictive. I plan on taking them responsibly :)

You'll be coherent. That dose is much too small to make you all loopy. Avoid alcohol of course.

Also if you do find that they help and end up taking them on a regular basis, be sure to wean off of them if you decide to stop. Even at a small dose they can make you have wicked nightmares or cause insomnia if you go cold turkey.
