Is it bad to sleep face up on Xanax? I'm currently in bed beside my boyfriend who is bared out on Xanax. I can't sleep because I'm afraid something will happen to him and I won't be awake to help him. His breathing is heavy. He is sleeping face up because I got someone to move him for me because he was taking up half the bed. I need room of my own since I'm pregnant I can't just go sleep on the couch. Please someone reply. I don't know if I should try to move him on his side.
Do you mean he took so much Xanax, he is passed out? You have every right to worry no matter which way he sleeps! He could stop breathing and his heart can stop if he takes too much Xanax, especially if he drinks any alcohol. If he nods out so heavy that he will not rouse and someone has to move him for you-this is bad news! He may not live to see this baby born if he continues with this kind of behavior. This drug is not one to play around with. It is highly addictive and it can cause seizures when someone who is dependent tries to stop it abruptly. I wouldnt be concerned with which way he is laying! His breathing and heart could stop no matter which way he lays! He is flirting with death every time he does this and he needs to stop. If he cant stop on his own, then he needs help! If this baby is his and he plans on being around to father this child, he needs to stop with the Xanax before he kills himself no matter which way he lays!
I agree with Dzoo. But I am one to call an ambulance and get him cared for. There is no time for help once he stops breathing. And any alcohol, even one beer, could kill him. Not exactly good daddy material of he remains an addict. And are you safe? Please be safe and use no drugs or alcohol of any kind so the baby is born healthy. You need some help and I hope you can find it. Stress you feel is not good for that little one developing in you, right? Take care.
