Alprazolam question? (xanax)

I am on Benicar for my high blood pressure and i've been told by the doc to take .25 of Alprazolam as needed. so i just break a .5 pill in half. Well like and idiot i took a full pill of the alprazolam and broke my Benicar in half when i was supposed to do the opposite. Is .5 a dangerous dose? Other than a slight buzz i feel fine. I'm not freakin but i took twice the anxiety meds i needed at the same time as my BP meds. I'm 220lbs so i think i'll be alright im just buzzed. Its been about 31'2 hours so i guess if i was gonna be in trouble by it, it would have happened by now.

Re: Alprazolam question? (xanax)

Hi Gimli. .5mg of xanax is not a large dose. I have .5mg pills that I also cut in half most of the time. I am on a beta blocker for my high heart rate and take both together. I'm not a doctor or anything, but what I know from my own experience, you should be fine.

Perfectly normal to feel a little "woozy". It wont hurt you. I take .5 every night before bed and it just makes me sleepy, with that slightly woozy feeling. I've taken 1mg in the past and been just fine....It's a very low, normal dose....

I also take a beta-blocker and xanax. I'm suppose to take 0.5 as needed 3-4 times daily but I cut mine in half and fine it works well. Did you go ahead and take the other half of your beta-blocker? The 0.5 xanax is a pretty common dose so don't worry!
