I agree with all other physicians comments . But we would like to know why you need this medication and your friend has suggested to you this in what capacity. Self medications can be many times harmful. Consult your family physician first.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Who is your friend? Is he a doctor? How can he suggest any medications? Or does he deal in such drugs?
Its punishable and more importantly harmful to take this medication without a doctors prescription.
Yours looks like a drug seeking behaviour.
Its absolutely not a drug whixh yiu can play around with.
Consult a psychiatrist in person along with your friend for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards

Hello. Alprax is Benzodiazepine group of drug, which is an anti-anxiety medication. It has multiple side-effects and potential drug-dependance on long-term use. This drug should never be used without prior medical consultation and proper prescription. Please contact a local physician immediately before starting this medication. Hope this helps.
