Such perscriptions drugs as Xanax are not good for recreational use.

Hi!

Says may cause drowsiness, alcohol may intensify effect and avoid eating or drinking grapefruit products with this med.

Grapefruit juice is known to inhibit an enzyme system found in the small intestine that metabolizes some drugs prior to absorption into the bloodstream. This system is called CYP 3A4 and does play a role in the metabolism of certain drugs. Drugs that are affected by this interaction are metabolized less than usual when they are taken with GJ, allowing a higher amount to reach the bloodstream, and this will cause higher drug levels, sometimes with increases in clinical effects or side effects. GJ also affects a transporter called p-glycoprotein. The effects of this are less clearly defined, but p-glycoprotein is responsible for actively secreting some absorbed drugs back into the small bowel.


Got this info from the web.

I've done it because my insomnia was so horrible that I was desperate for some good sleep. That was pretty stupid though, people shouldn't abuse meds like that.

I don't recall, and it probably isn't good to go into specifics of that sort anyway.

my sister used to take xanax with beer.
one day when she was off work she called me while i was at work ..she was acting wierd...
her apartment was right near where i worked so i went over there on my lunch and she was on the couch sleeping...
i couldnt even wake her up ..so my mom came over and got her to wake up...and then she......my sister...dials 911 and hangs up the phone so the fire /ambulance came...
they took her away and she almost got sent to a state hospitol -
cuz the psychiatrist thought he should admit her for acting so looney
it was really weird..cuz she was givin me shit on the phone and then shes like fine dont come over( but she knew I would) she left her apartment door open a crack cuz she knew she wouldnt hear me buzz her apartment when i got there/ so once someone came out and i got in i found her asleep on the couch.
what a shitty thing to do ...i love her so much but what a fucked up thing

I'm curious as to why you're curious bout this JOFO.

I admit I've done it before and nothing bad happened, but apparently that is a huge exception to the norm....You aren't planning on experiementing are you? (puts on her mother hen hat)

Seriously, there is NO REASON to use perscription medication for recreational purposes. Several people here have mentioned cases of death when mixing these drugs with alcohol, and like DeadMansParty mentioned, I also had to pull over on the freeway so that a friend who I had been at a bar with could throw up. I knew he had only had a few beers, and he said it was because he took xanax "for the buzz." He got off lucky. Don't do it. Don't take it with alcohol. It's a song, but so is "Cocaine" by JJ Cale and "Killing an Arab" by the Cure, and "I Believe I Can Fly" by some R&B singer. That doesn't mean you should try any of these stupid things.

Likewise, I'm sick of hearing about high school and college students in my area dying from highly-addictive perscription opiates such as Oxycontin that some 50-year old patient sold them. Is a buzz really wiorth your life?

no, I don't plan on taking xanax and wine.
I won't go into specifics here, but I was curious for a number of reasons.
thanks to everyone that responded.

I've done them but not at the same time.


Xanax really doesn't do anything for me.

But I love alcohol.

I had a friend who nearly died from eating twenty-something xanax peaches. His dad had just passed away and he was real depressed. He's still not right, but not quite as bad. I'm sure he's mixed xanax with beer at some point, can't quite recall exactly when though.
