Thanks refresh good site! I'll be saving that one.
I've been trying to find info/read most of the day. It's starting to sound like he stopped taking it, rather then over dosing (confusion, brain snaps etc)
It is very sad. Wish I knew more.
Xanax can be used as an antipsychotic so if someone who doesn't actually need it uses it it can actually cause psychosis. Like someone without add using Ritalin for the speed effect iykwim.
Combined with alcohol I have no idea but I imagine it wouldn't be good. Both are depressants.
I'll see if I can get some info for you.
Sorry to hear about your friend, it is hard to know what is going on but long term alcoholics can get dementia, which would be irreversible. Or he may have severe depression, or a drug induced psychosis if he takes other hard drugs such as the ones I mentioned.
I hope he gets better

Hmm it is very sudden. Google alcoholic encephalopathy, it sounds like that's what they are talking about. But again we don't really know, he may have had a stroke or something not even related to alcohol!
You are right, in most cases it is quite easily treatable with antipsychotics (well, and getting off the drugs).
Fx he improves
The first thing I thought of was Korsakoff's syndrome. Here is a link with some info on it... There could be so many things though. I guess it will just be a wait and see game. I hope yhour friend can recover.
