James here....

I did some checking as to the human LD-50 but could only find animal ld-50. In terms of mgs/kg
it is huge. Now that I think this over I realize
the persons I know who tried to go out on a benzo
in reality used ethanol plus many other pills.

Using benzos alone or with ethanol it would surely
take a huge dose. I know some who have tried this
which makes for a nasty hangover along with dealing with the fact that you just tried to kill yourself. Sorry I jumped the gun on this....I have a friend who almost died on Xanax and I forgot that he had taken a whole medicine cab.
of pills plus Xanax and ethanol. It was a long time ago and one tries to forget these happenings
and more one.
