Xanax Hangover – Understanding The Symptoms

Xanax Hangover – Understanding The Symptoms


Anyone that consumes Xanax will experience a number of different symptoms. Although each individual will experience something different, a lot of Xanax users will experience a Xanax hangover. Although this is somewhat similar to an alcohol hangover, the symptoms that you experience will be somewhat different. Below, you will learn about the feelings that you’ll experience, when suffering from this type of hangover.

The Feelings

When suffering from this type of hangover, you will wake up feeling lethargic, tired and unmotivated. Some individuals will have difficulty falling asleep, after consuming this medication. The morning after using Xanax, you shouldn’t feel surprised, if you wake up sleepy and feeling like you don’t want to get out of bed!

Who Will Be Impacted?



It should be known that not everyone will suffer from these feelings. By refraining from Xanax usage for an extensive period of time, before reusing, it is highly likely that you’ll feel these things. Those that consume Xanax almost everyday will be much less likely to experience the hangover. This information can help you prepare for a potential hangover.

Getting Plenty of Sleep

One of the best ways to prevent the hangover from occurring is by sleeping for a longer period of time, after consuming the Xanax. You should go to sleep earlier, in order to ensure that you get the recommended amount of sleep and help your body adjust to the medication’s effects on your mind and body.

    If I take Xanax during the day to alleviate some anxiety, I get a little sleepy, maybe doze for 15 minutes if I am home, but it relived my anxiety and i have no after effects. However, if I have Xanax at night due to increased anxiety before bed I have so much trouble the morning after. While I don't usually get 8 hours sleep, I get 6.5 to 7 consistently. If I took a Xanax the. Ought before I struggle to wake up, often oversleep. I feel groggy and cloudy for hours later. Not sure why taking it before bed has such a long lasting effect on my system while taking it mid day has no long standing effect.

    I suffered from benzodiazepines, so the doctor prescribed me to take this drug. It helps me to get relief from different symptoms and conditions. Now, I feel happy and live a happy life without any troubles. When I was took this drug, I never felt hangover due to take this medication. If anyone feels this symptom, it might be a reason for overdose. I suggest everyone better you consult with the doctor before taking this drug.

    I have seen that one of my friends took 2 mg of Xanax for curing her benzo experience. She took these bars for a certain period, but she never felt anything bad. She got better results after a few days. Last year, I felt very stress and panic disorder, so I took 1 mg of Xanax at first time as per my friend’s suggestion. Within a year, I completely got cured and feel relaxed without any troubles. After one year, I have stopped using this, but never felt like hangover while pursuing this drug.

    To the best of my experience, Xanax is good to use with the right dose. I used this drug for the past one year and have never felt sick anymore. But many people got the worst feeling due to overdose of Xanax. The depressive symptom is pretty common side effect of this drug, but it will not last forever. My suggestion is good to take 2 mg before bed and never feel hangover on the next day.

    I was prescribed to use 1 mg of Xanax and took this recommended dosage every day. Many of friends also followed the same dose like me, but they felt hangover at sometimes. But, when I take this drug, I feel normal and fresh to wake up on the next day without any tiredness or symptoms.
