    So SWIM was doing a bit of research on drinking coffee with xanax, lots of people say caffiene cancels out the effects of the xanax, is that true? Does it take away the 'high'? or do you just get a bit more anxious with the caffiene? SWIM just drank a cup of coffee and doesn't want to take the xanax if it wont work.

    I can't talk for Xanax and coffee, but I used to take Klonopin with Full Throttle energy drink all the time to give me a speedy but not too tweaky kind of energy. I don't think they 'canceled out' each other in any way, but instead had a synergistic effect.

    Would personally not mix them but then again it's just caffiene. With stims+benzos it's frigging dangerious, maybe the lowest dose poss of a benzo if feeling anxious but then GAME OVER - never use them to kill it then bounce back on stimulents.

    ...... you lose control in the end. Benzos would KO you while stims fight and keep going.

    Drinking coffee on Xanax should be nice to taste.

    I know Cocaine+Xanax is common, but again it's daft I've seen too much go wrong.

    SWIM drinks coffee with Xanax everyday. As long as your not taking crazy amounts of caffiene (300mg + a day), this is Fine. ANY other stim is a no no.

    You can see my post on the effects of Ativan with Caffeine on this post if you are interested.

    They can work very well together, but dosage is important or you may end up too caffeinated. (And no it's not going to kill you. Caffeine is not cocaine, as some other poster referenced benzos and stimulants above)

    If you want to feel the full effects of the benzo then do not ingest any type of stimulant. They're working against each other, but like P1-O2 said, caffeine isn't cocaine, it's not powerful enough to "cancel out" any benzo.

    Yeah swim actually downed a xanax bar with a nice big cup of coffee not too long ago, and he actually loved the feeling. You're not as tired, and it didn't seem to effect the xanax at all actually, if anything it made it better for swim. Thanks for the help guys.

    Xanax and coffee sounds like it might be pleasant. The combination of stims and sedatives/narcotics, according to a redwing blackbird i know, is like the best, although it is dangerous. Sound like lotsa drugs? Caffeine is mild and will not say, mask a lethal dose for a little while or cause you to OD. The speedball is the ultimate version of this and is instructive. Cocaine and heroin have a strong synergistic effect, old school biker crank has some synergy, and the ICE ( shards) does cancel out heroin and the heroin cancels the rush. ??? do not know why. Stick to coffee kid...

    Why is everyone stating that benzos with stims is horrible? I am prescribed 60mg of Adderall a day and 3mg of clonazepam to take with it throughout the day. I'm not condoning anyone to take my regimen, but is my doctor just crazy with pills?

    Not necessarily; I've seen varied reports from person to person. Judge the potency of your medications before and after combining them (if possible) and ask yourself if they're treating it properly. The effectiveness of either medication could be lowered by the other - but they shouldn't "cancel out". Their mechanisms of action are completely different.

    Another point to mention: If prescribed this combination, staggering (letting one medication run most of its course) until it is deemed safe for the administration of the other medication is WISE. SWIM doesn't recommend this combination unless its used correctly as a regimen and under Docs orders.

    gotta say i never liked xanax but i got a script for a nice comedown off coke and now realized a week ago how awesome xanax and coffee are together. with a little bit of marijuana and you get this speedy dopey trippy high it's just perfect. free xanax cheap coffee and good weed.
