^ Good luck dealing with the swarm of humans today.
It was 2 mg of Xanax last night. I had Concerta and Gabapentin in my system already. Maybe that potentiated it.I find it odd that people pass out on alprazolam. I get it prescribed and mess with other bzds as well on the side, and to me alpraz is like, not tiring at all compared to the rest of the lot. It's extremely transparent for me and I can dose it continually and never have the 'delusion of sobriety' effect, no one ever knows that I'm 'on' anything when I take it. It's purely medicinal for me. I've tried to use it for sleep and found it ineffective. It's easily the best bzd (and medication in general) for my chronic gut pain though. So glad my doctor understands that. So many doctors these days don't believe in using bzds long term but mine agrees it's the best treatment option for my issues. Even said he'd write me 12 month refills in the future, gave me 6 months this first round so when my tolerance goes up he can bump me up to the 1mg pills at the 6 month mark.
Admittedly, the one time I've taken 2mg all at once, I did feel very mellow. Still didn't have me sleepy though, just content to sit and be at peace.
My morning fix today was a strong cup of coffee. Will follow with some etiz soon as my pain is flaring up. Gonna try and get myself to go for a 2 mile jog today, need to get some cardio in.
