I found a white substance on my kitchen counter. I put it on my tongue and my tongue immediately became tingly and numb. When I asked my room mate about it, she said the powder was baking soda and maybe I tasted a little piece of a Xanax pill that she had broken apart the other day. Could it be Xanax that caused the numbness or something else? I suspected cocaine, but she denied it.

I would watch ur roommates habits and pupils of his/hers eyes they will get Huge if he/she is on cocaine. Please be careful of just putting any kind of white powder in ur mouth it could cause you to fail a work drug test if it's really cocaine n you ingested it... good luck...

I have had xanax to dissolve in just the time it takes to get the water and get it down I never had that experience, what happened with it I always had a bitter taste in my mouth, there will possibly be other suggestions but that sounds like what was said earlier concerning the powder substance please see if you get another answerr I could always be incorrect about the powder substance but Xanax never did that to me

Hi Citcat. Usually ones first suspicions are the right ones. Xanax IS bitter like the others mentioned and does not make the tongue numb. And I'm not aware of any baking products that cause that numbness either.
Good luck and hope you can come to some agreement with your room mate!
