Use of Rivitriol and/or Aprazolam to lessen cocaine cravings.

Please could I get some opinion as to whether this would be a good idea. I would not intend on using them regularly. Only when I am really suffering.

Imo, it would NOT be a good idea.
Try using the amino acid L-Theanine.
Read about its benefits online.  No risk of addiction and "beaucoup" benefits!

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here,shocking that I even remembered my password,but I guess that’s one of the many many benefits of being substance free,to answer your question,I’m in agreement with the above post,that NO this will not be a good idea,Xanax to lessen cocaine cravings?i was in withdrawal from Xanax for 6 months,yes 6 MONTHS,if you read through my posts from 2 years ago ,you will see what kind of a mindset it puts you in,I know people who have suffered benzo withdrawal for up to 2 years,it’s not possible to not use Xanax regularly if you,already have addictive tendencies,Xanax has a very very short half life ,when I was actively using Xanax,my withdrawals would kick in every 2-3 hours,I ended up dosing between 12-16 mg daily,I too didn’t intend on taking them regularly,I hate to “should” all over anybody,of course you are free to do whatever you like, from the bottom of my heart, I ask you to please not go there,google benzo withdrawal,the list of symptoms is endless,I’ve withdrawn from alcohol opiates and benzos,whilst all are horrific,I can’t emphasize enough how bad Xanax withdrawal was for me,I hope this message rings loud,I also hope you read the compassion and not somebody telling you what to do, do you mean cocaine withdrawals or you are looking to find something to aid with your comedowns?are you still using coke?

Thanks for the answer. I am looking to quit coke completely but the cravings have dragged me back so far.

I’ve done plenty of coke ,but it wasn’t my no1 choice ,I used it more to keep going whilst drinking ,but I do understand the urge,it’s like an itch that needs to be scratched,enough is never enough , and too much always made me paranoid,is it powder or crack that you use?
