I'm aware of the relaxing effect of Xanax, but I'd hardly describe it as "euphoria", although 1.25 mg. is a lot to take all at once. I also had that same relaxing feeling when I took Klonopin too, so I think it's the benzo effect, not the Xanax effect.

I suspect there is a dosage level that would produce these effects in you (of course I'm just speaking only from my experience).
