I take Xanax on a regular basis for my anxiety attacks. At first I was extremely nervous to take if. Tell your friend to break it in half the first time and make sure that they are not planning on driving afterwards. My Xanax has been my savior many times during my panic attacks. Head the side effects. Tell him to talk to the pharmacist about his concerns. Read all paperwork that came with the prescription.
There is nothing to worry about with Xanax in my experience. It helps me breathe and relax and think more rationally on what caused the anxiety attack in the first place.
Hope this helps.

Tell him that you're worried about him and that there is no way he will die just from the first time taking it. And that if it seems to be making anything bad happen after a few times taking it, he can call his doctor and tell them. Just let him know he'll be safe and feel better.

Where is the doctor who prescribed Xanax for your friend? Is your friend not being carefully monitored by a professional? Are your friend's parents not aware of the problem? Xanax can be a dangerous and addictive drug, and it certainly is inappropriate for your friend to be trying to manage it without medical help. It's important for a responsible adult to be told about your friend's struggle. Please tell someone who can help-a parent, teacher, nurse or doctor, or clergyman. Good luck!
