Citation:   I'm still alive. "A Week in a Hospital From 8 Bars: An Experience with Alprazolam (Xanax) (exp72312)". Sep 21, 2008.

16 mg oral Pharms - Alprazolam (pill / tablet)
    oral Alcohol  


I got 8 bars of xanax from my friends father. I took them all the next day about 4 p.m. This was a mistake.

About an hour later I blacked out. I remember 2 different sequences a few seconds each. I remember talking to the fellow in the ambulance and I remember beating the shit out of my head because I was so angry I was going to have to stay in the hospital. I took them on a Thursday and I woke up Saturday morning in the adolescent psychiatric ward of a hospital. I was locked up in this place for a week the food was horrible. This led to something else happening. Since I was in the psych ward everybody there was depressed. On the fourth night my pal crept off into the bathroom, he had been talking about suicide the whole time. The light above his door started blinking. The nurse went in and then we heard 'help.' So I ran in there and he was hanging from the sprinkler. So I grabbed him around the waist and held him up for what seemed like 10 minutes, really about 2. We all tried to cut the rope and they finally did. He lived but nobody slept that night.

On another occasion before this I had 6 bars and blacked out. I woke up the next morning and went back to my friends house. What he said shocked me,'Somebody drank the half bottle of whiskey that was on the table.' I thought 'Oh shit' that was me to. I remember taking a taste of the bottle and putting it back. But I finished it off later.
