Brief Answer: Can be XXXXXXX . Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, welcome to health care magic! I have read your question and it says that you have history of depression and anxiety. you have asked if taking too many alprazolam would kill you? It is a short question but definitely cannot have a short answer! The answer is both yes and no. It depends on several factors. 1.how much alprazolam you want to take ( what is too many for you)?? 2. for what reason you want to take 3.what dosage? 4. what other drugs are you on for depression or anxiety 5. and are you into addiction with also how/ or other drugs presently. Do you have any respiratory problem? --- if yes, then please donot take it at all, it can be really XXXXXXX for you. Once or three times alprazolam, taken for correct reason , in low doses , is usually safe for someone who is not into addiction. But, if you are already in some other medicines for sedation or anxiety, like clonazepam or zolpidem, etizolam , etc. the it is best to avoid taking it with them. I donot know why you have put up this question, but for any kind of anxiety, if two - three tablets of alprazolam are not helping you, then it is unlikely that taking a lot will do so. So, may be just take a walk/ jog for an hour or so, you will feel better. Meet a psychiatrist and discuss your problem, this will surely give you best results. Hope the reply is useful Wish you good luck! Please ask more questions if you need any clarification. If you are satisfied, then kindly close the discussion and rate the answer.

My story is a difficult one, I went through a rough patch last year, Myself and my wife was looking to buy a new house and we battled to find one for 9 months, whilst staying with my folks. This made me a bit depressed so went out a lot with my friends and drank a lot of whiskey and smoking cigarettes. We then finally got the house we wanted, me being very excited, went out with friends and got horribly drunk and smoked a half a packed of menthol cigarettes. The next morning i was very sick, with a huge hangover, this carried on for 2 weeks. I was urinating like a racing horse. I also felt that my kidneys were very tender, I went to the doctor and she gave me a cortisone injection. Then i went to a doctor and he told me I had crystals in my kidneys and that it would go away. I have to drink a lot of water and drink citro soda to flush my kidneys clean. I also used to drink allergex antihistamine which was a sedative drug. The doctor told me this makes people drowsy and that I should rather use Loratadine because it is not a sedative drug. When I started using this drug i made me feel very funny but I thought it would be a side affect, after a weeks use of this medication i stated getting panic attacks. This then made my brain felt like it was making waves like the ocean, also a feeling of being drunk and I new something was not right in my brain. I then went out with my wife to her companies year end function and had one glass of Champaign and two shooters. The following eve i got another pannic attack. I went to bed and slept, i woke up at 3 in the morning and it felt as if my brain was running like a V8 Engine. and at a high frequency pitch. I then walked in the house feeling very restless I could not stand i could not sit still. This continued for 3 days, then I admitted myself into hospital. I was diagnosed with psychomotor epilepsy (TLE) ( The psychiatrist told me my brain frequencies are out of synch) . I was then put on Alprazolam medication and zyprexa and epilim. This didn’t make me feel very good my sight wasn’t good and dint feel myself. As soon as people came near me I wanted to hurt them stab them with a knife if I was eating. And my vision was not good as if I was in a dream state. I then went back to the doctor saying that I stopped taking the eplim, she then changed the medicine to tegratol and seroquel. The seroquel was a total brain dysfunctional, So I stopped taking the seroquel medication and only drank the tegratol. I could do nothing at work my brains memory and concentration was of that of a gold fish ( with the seroquel). I then went to neurologist for another scan and he said there is no more brain problem and that there is no more epilepsy. The doctor took me off the Alprazolam and I woke up at three in the morning. I then admitted myself into hospital where they pumped all medication out of my body, and then they gave me urbanol, 75mg of lamotrigine, 2 tabs camcolit and etamien to sleep. I then went back to sphyciatrist and she gave me Epilim again, I again didn’t drink it, cause it made my brain feel funny. I then decided i wanted to go to a sleep clinic where there was another neurologist, he told me I had an illness and that it was not epilepsy. He then send me to another psychiatrist. I am now on 100 mg of lamotrigine, 100mg malipoxin (trazodone), and clonazepam (Rivotril)



I still have weird feelings in my brain, which is only related to extreme anxiety. There are periods during the day that I feel horribly drunk (Intoxicated feeling) as if I had a whole bottle of whiskey and feel as if the brain cells are burning. I have heached over my two frontal lobes, headaches on the side of my head. I get lots of cold sweats, I stress a lot on how I feel, which I know is not good for the anxiety, My body is sore in the morning as if I have flue, and also periods during the course of the day I Have feeling as if something is eating my brain. I also had brain fog symptoms, somptoms of my brain being squeezed, as if it is dehydrated. My brain doesn’t feel clear, as if the brain power is suppressed. I also have a feeling of having a hang over sometimes. My brain feels like water moving in the ocean.

I have read a lot on the internet on diseases like dementia and other mental illnesses. But I think I have severe anxiety which was caused by the alcohol. Im still concerned that I have brain damage

I am not an alcoholic, I only drink with my friends, And I don’t smoke during the day. I only had 5 hard party sessions in 2 months. I don’t have any cravings besides for sweets (Sugar)



Could the cigarette smoking together with the alcohol cause temporary seizures? I am so worried about brain damage, or is the anxiety making me feel stupid with not good memory and concentration. I had one MRI and two EEG scans. I am so paranoid and worried about my health. It feels like a live in a dream. Should I go for any other brain scans? Like a PET CAT, MEG scan?

I think the anxiety is also physically killing me.

I have now also gone for acupuncture sessions. As the doctor in our church which specialises in Chinese medicine says my central nervous system is going up and down. Every doctor has something else to say and it is freaking me out.



Please help
