Whitney Houston’s death, called “Queen of Pop” is really surprising that many people especially the lovers of music and song in the world. To date this article was done, I still see some friends on the facebook wall is occupied by the success of Whitney link from the 80′s brought the era of the 90. His sudden death brought the sad news indeed, especially for the fans.Especially if associated with smoking in recent years are filled with news of the will of cocaine dependence.
Although the toxicology of the control body is no longer made, many rumors began circulating that Whitney died of a similar mix sedative called Xanax with alcohol. It was said at the time to find a position that seems Whitney was drowned in a bathtub drowning was suspected initially, but said the evidence that, although there was no water in his lungs. This indicates that Whitney had died before lying in the bathtub. In this article I will try to talk a little about the drug called Whitney Houston plays a role in these deaths.
Xanax and alcohol
Xanax is the brand name for the class of medications called benzodiazepines alprazolam generic. Anticemas drug Alprazolam is one of the most widely prescribed and unfortunately more often wrong. The main indications of this drug for anxiety disorders is panic, especially when a panic attack.
In practice, many doctors prescribe this anxiety not only for panic disorder, but also the treatment of other anxiety and insomnia as well. Benzodiazepines, including alprazolam classes of drugs with short half-life. That is, the drug is short enough to be in human blood after eating.
Metabolites including the half-life ranged between 8-15 hours. In practice, the effects of this medicine is gone in 3-4 hours. This could create the potential for substance dependence is also greater. It is recommended to consume more than a few weeks.Usually, in practice, these drugs are not recommended to take more than 4 weeks, there are even some signs of not having more than two weeks. Alprazolam and alcohol actually have the same properties as a depressant of the nervous system of the brain.
The purpose of this is a depressant drug that affects the nervous system of the brain that peace is the result. Alprazolam working in the glutamate amino butyric acid systems (GABA), has sedative properties, ie properties of this drug to calm. Alcohol while having the same properties that soothe. Both substances is not advisable to drink together.
Even someone who is being treated with medication alprazolam drug is not recommended to drink alcohol during treatment, although not in unison, while drinking. This is because if taken together, the effect can be orders of magnitude of the expected real effects. Several studies have also said that benzodiazepines, including alprazolam drugs in large doses or doses that doubled in interactions with other drugs that power even more important in the suppression of the respiratory system in the brain.
If you see a history of treatment of lung disease (emphysema is said) by some media about Whitney Houston, may have been the condition of your use of alprazolam and alcohol makes breathing became depressed which makes that the condition becomes dangerous, especially with the history of these lung disorders.
What I wrote above is just assumptions based on the coverage of the media in relation to what is experienced by the late Whitney Houston. What really happens behind the event that we are looking forward to the official report of the government of that country. My message is be careful with the use of tranquilizers and alcohol. If the class of drugs benzodiazepines anticemas the supervision of a physician should not attempt to self-medicate with drugs purchased at pharmacies are selling drugs sleepers of this type without a prescription.
