Giving a presentation on Xanax


I began college and the lecturer said we will have to do three presentations in the whole module, one beginning next month.

I've done them in the past and even after practicing, I made a balls of it. I was wondering if I could take a low dose of opiates (codeine) or benzos (alprazolam-Xanax, diazepam-Valium).

The trick is getting my GP/psychiatrist to prescribe it. I live in Ireland

I always take Xanax before presentations. The trick is to take the exact right amount so that it reduces your anxiety but you don't starting nodding off like you just booted a bag of dope or something. If I take too much I just want to lay down on the couch and pass out and can't think straight. If I don't take enough it does absolutely nothing. You have to know what the appropriate dose is for your body and tolerance level. So you have to try taking it ahead of time to figure that out.

Also, you have to know how it will hit you and when. I usually take Xanax sublingually because I know it will relax me within an hour. If I swallow it its more like 2 hours. Xanax usually peaks in your system about an hour after you first start to feel it. That is when you want to be giving your presentation. So you have to time that right. So you can certainly use Benzos for presentations you just need to experiment with it first to determine the correct dosage.

Everybody knows you only live a day but it's brilliant anyway

Inderal (generic name is Propranolol) works great too. It's non-addictive and should be easier to get prescribed.
