Maybe its just me but I get the munchies like I just smoked a hog leg when I eat Xanax

Actually, you may be onto something..I take a thieno-benzo (Zyprexa) nightly and I also remember that when I started (about 2 years ago), I couldn't stop eating and gained about 20 pounds in a month. But not anymore.

nah not me... in fact, if anything they do the opposite to me..

Is "I don't remember" an acceptable answer?

Not really. They just make me gouch out.
05-17-2007, 09:45 PM
No, actually the opposite, I forget about food. Maybe it's the type of benzo. I take ativan sometimes

HELL YEH! atleast after hittin the crippy. But, yeh if I have no tolerance, and down bennies they will make me munch like none other, even without herbals. I especially love to pass out with food all over myself LOL. So even if I don't remember the munchies there is usually a feast to clean up after sometime when I sober up and actually give a damn about cheetoes in my sheets.
....Gaucho if you are the same dude from the OP board ( I don't remember which one) it is good to have you on board here at opio. I got a lot out of all the posts made at other boards by ya.....if you are in fact the same person you are funny as hell.

Definately! I used to be prescribed 1mg of klonopin 3xdaily and boy did that make me eat like a fucking horse! I swear i gained forty pounds in that 8 months i was on the medication before a detox center yanked it from my arsenal of meds......Fucking dickheads....hahaha

Oh fuck yeah, I took Zyprexa in 97/98 when they first come out with it. I turned into a fatass.:D

Yes, benzos can cause appetite stimulation for sure. As a matter of fact, benzos are sometimes prescribed for animals for that exact purpose (in addition to other uses).

oh god yes, we ordered some take-out italian cuisine from a badass italian restaurant in my area. A nice hole in the wall mafioso type eatery and when we all woke up at my boys house, I somehow destroyed near all the leftovers in the fridge without knowledge of it!
It kind of turns me into an ambien zombie of sorts and I will destroy all food in my path, lol

They just make me feel very couch potato, which involves eating.

Temazepam makes me scarf food like an Ethiopian at Old Country Buffet. (mean, I know..hope there isn't anybody from Ethiopia on here...:confused:)

xanax makes food taste so much better. things that i would normally pass up become irrestible about 25 minutes after taking a few bars.
also on zyprexa for almost 10 years, and i would testify that it can make anyone who is on a regimen fatter. i pull myself off of it every once in a while and lose between 30-80lbs. then gain it all back when i cant take the paranoia/voices and get back on the 30 mg a day.
