A guy I know died by mixing cocaine and xanax together. I’ve been thinking about it a lot recently since coke is easy to come by here. Any idea how much it would take to kill you? And would it be really painful? Thanks

Good luck. At least you have access to that. I don't get fucking shit. I would luv to have some fucking xanax. I obviously have anxiety but horrible drs. don't give a fuck. I would think lots of alcohol plus the shit you mention would be pretty bad...especially if you were left alone for a day or two.

That incident was likely very much a statistical outlier. Xanax and coke isn't a reliable fatal OD at all.
Correct. Cocaine is a Stimulant and Xanax is an Anti-Depressant. Taken at the same time and yer gonna go nowhere.

Xanax is actually not an anti depressant. It’s a benzodiazepine which are not used for depression but for anxiety and panic disorder. It has some off label uses too for medical things and sleep but it’s never used for depression and it’s highly addictive.

There are 7 drug classifications used by the courts here in the US. Xanax is put into the anti depresant category for that purpose. Yer right its a benzo.

No, as mentioned above, Xanax (alprazolam) is not anti-depressant, it's a CNS depressant.

You aren't fooling anyone with you having any med schooling when you are classing alprazolam as an anti-depressant. It's a benzo, of course, but here It even lists xanax under CNS depressant for you on the following source.

You're referring to IACP classifications. Where did you learn the US legal system utilizes the IACP's seven categories?

Xanax is prescribed for depression on a regular basis. The woke culture is strong here.

Even if alprazolam was prescribed regularly for depression, it still wouldn't make it an anti-depressant.

You can continue to believe it is, because you certainly aren't open to multiple people trying to help you for some reason.
