Xanax Overdose Symptoms

 

Signs that a Xanax overdose has occurred include a coma, fainting, weakened reflexes, muscles that are weak, unstable balance, dizziness, decreased coordination, a state of confusion and a sense of drowsiness, shallow breath and low blood pressure.


A severe overdose can result in death. Only one percent of those who have taken Xanax have died, which is regarded as low. Also, death has been reported with combinations of alcohol with Xanax, or a multiple use of other drugs and Xanax. Massive intravenous doses of Xanax in an amount of 195 milligrams have been shown to kill rats in experiments.


Since an overdose of Xanax can be fatal, it’s imperative that you don’t take a double dose of the medication if you miss a dose.

A study was performed of 641 Xanax users who received smaller doses of the drug, which resulted in the following side effects: the lack of ability to get to sleep at night, 29.5 percent; a light-headed feeling, 19.3 percent; increased anxiety, 19.2 percent; feeling worn out, 18.4 percent; involuntary muscle movements, 17.3 percent; headaches, 17 percent; vomiting and feeling nauseous, 16.5 percent; excessive sweating, 14.4 percent; diarrhea, 13.6 percent; weight loss, 13.3 percent; a lack of appetite, 12.8 percent; an increased heartbeat, 12.2 percent; dry mouth, 10.6 percent; feeling irritable, 10.5 percent; a difficulty in solving problems, 10.3 percent; blurry vision, 10 percent; twitching muscles, 6.9 percent; a lack of coordination, 6.6 percent; decreased muscle tone, 5.9 percent; forgetfulness, 5.5 percent; a weak feeling, 5.8 percent; feeling depressed, 5.1 percent; and feeling confused, 5 percent.
The best recommendation for attempting to avoid side effects when Xanax is reduced is to slow that reduction to no more than 0.5 milligrams every three days. There are some people who are best with even a slower dosage reduction.


A clinical trial measuring the effect of dose reduction for patients who received more than four milligrams of Xanax daily over a three month period versus side effects found that eight out of 1,980 people suffered seizures and five of these eight cases resulted from a sudden withdrawal of the drug, or a drop of two to 10 milligrams of Xanax each day. Seizures seem to occur the most within two to three days after a person quits taking Xanax. Usually a single seizure takes place, but there are times when multiple seizures occur.

 

Periodic medical and laboratory tests, the most common being tests to measure the function of the liver, should be performed on anyone taking Xanax in order to predetermine possible side effects.
