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.
