I was just told that four miligrams are the "addictive level" by my Rheumatologist. But, that was for a person (I'm guessing at this part) that weighs around 100 pds. I could be wrong about this because of the weight issue.

Yes, it can cause breathing problems during sleep. CNS means central nervous system.
If the person drinks at all, they could easily die during sleep.
The real question is, why are there such high doses available and what does the doctor say? Please check with the doc.

the max dose is 8mg spread out to 2mgs 4 x a day any nore than that will get your doctor in trouble when he or she gets an audit by the DEA and the pharmacy dispencing this amount also gets an audit.but in your question you asked is it safe to take more then 6 at once? is that what you ment? cause wow,thats a lot of xanax to take at once. but i do know people who do take way too many of them at a time.because they supress the central nervous system or cns. but any high dose of benzo's can be very dangerous if taken with opiates or alcohol or an anti depressent .you can just stop breathing in your sleep.so please understand i am not judging you just trying to answer your question.

it sounds to me like someone just wants to get high, thats not cool its people like that that make it harder for me to get the meds i need because i suffer from chronic pain and panic disorder as well as insomnia and its been a nightmare trying to get my meds lately cause the are all controlled substances. and my docs are cracking down harder and harder.
