I am someone who uses Alprazolam (Generic brand, Xanax) recreationally. I will usually take anywhere within 1-3mg. The drug has heightened my suicidal thoughts. Previously to using it I had been infrequently depressed/suicidal. I find I am at my worst anywhere between 6-8hours after a dose has worn off or after having slept.

This drug was given to my husband when he had a history of addiction to alcohol and he commited suicide a few months after starting it.
widowed; My heart goes out to you and your family nobody should have to go through this. Just one more view I have taken Xanax generic for 20 plus years and taken correctly I have never had increased thoughts of suicide. But It is really a tough call it is just like the black box warning on antidepressants for younger people. Says to the doctor WARNING THE USE OF THIS IN CHILDER AND YOUNG ADULTS COULD INCREASE THE CHANCES OF SUICIDE. But the way I look at it. we would not be taking these medications if we did not have problems to start with. AND HOW IS ANYONE GOING TO KNOW IF I COMMITTED SUICIDE FROM MY MEDICATION OR I JUST DID IT ON MY OWN. OR I JUST MISCALCULATED. CHUCK1957 again this is terrible no matter what happened and I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. Good luck to you Chuck.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is something you still monitor but I'd like to share some anecdotal evidence. First I would like to say I am sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry to hear about your husbands death--I have done some research on ativan and they say it can cause suicidal thoughts and many other problems. I have been taking it a long time and am now trying to get off them.
