This is how my first experience with Xanax went:
A friend and I crushed up four 2mg bars. We each railed one each, he went for the second and I followed suit. Railing them was not nearly as bad as I expected, I crushed them up very fine in a tablet crusher, split the bars into two lines each, and went to town. The burn wasn't terrible. It didn't go numb or I didn't make it to the numb phase, but either way, the drip was strong and bitter but not particularly bad either.
I'm not 100% certain I finished the second bar - I may have only done half of it, but if there was any left then railed at least half the second before my memory blacks out. The effects begin almost immediately and build up from there, I didn't wait very long at all for my second bar, and I guess it just pushed my completely-intolerant self completely over the edge.
Apparently I passed out at some point, either immediately or very shortly after my second bar. My friend tried to wake me up but I was totally unresponsive, even after being screamed at, shooken, and physically picked up. He said my pulse and breathing were fine, that I was just completely and utterly dead to the world.
My alarm didn't even wake me up the next morning. I finally woke up an hour after the beginning of my shift, called in, and went back to sleep for another few hours.
Noticeable effects I remember include clumsiness, slight drowsiness, a vague and inexplicable sort of body buzz, and the sensation that everything's been slowed down. I think it would've been a lot more enjoyable if I'd scaled down the dose - maybe from two full bars to a half. :)
