What is the side effect of smoking crystal meth and snort xanax?

I would like to know what happens if you smoked crystal meth and snorted xanax . What are the effects? I migt be naive on this one a bit. I was reading up on ice and the effects and side effects and i would think that taking the xanax would help with the stress ans strain on the heart from the shortness of breath and rapid heart rate and what not.

Crystal meth damages the blood vessels of heart and brain, causing fast heart rate and excitement in the short term, and heart attack and stroke in the long term. Taking Xanax simultaneously cannot prevent this damage. Xanax can lower the heart rate only when it is due to anxiety. It doesn't help in lowering fast heart rates due to other causes.

Best wishes.
