Ive been taking prescribed xanax (alprazolam) for 10+ years now and if i run out in the last couple years

Before refills seizures when this happens. It is horrific so I was wondering if I happened to have some diazepam to take when this occurs will it help me from these seizures and sickness from DTS or alleviate the side effects until I can refill?

I don't know if this is related to ur issue with seizers, but when I was 9 I got a virus that was eating my brain. Luckily the doctor was able to stop it before it killed me. I was told after that that I shouldn't get anymore seizers or very rarely get them. I was getting them frequently. In 2012 Summer my mom read a book called Wheat Belly. I gave up eating wheat and no longer had seizers or anything close to one. I also found out wheat is what caused the virus and it is common for wheat to cause seizers. A month free off my medication and still no signs. This isn't the issue for everyone, but it is common.

With all due respect, if you are taking your Alprazolam as prescribed, you should not "run out" between refills. I cannot be responsible and tell you to take diazepam "Valium" in stead or on top of Alprazolam.

Although Diazepam is used to relieve anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures like Xanax, taking it without a doctor's prescription is not recommended. You could be allergic to one of its ingredients, which is why this query would be best addressed to your doctor.
