Okay... what's the downside to popping a Xanax at 3am? Waking up at 2pm the next day. The whole reason I took it is because I had a lot to do today and couldn't be kept awake all night thinking about a rodent in the closet. But here it is, 2pm, and I'm just getting up. I'm groggy, too, and need coffee. OMG--I'm turning into Elvis. (Not my cat Elvis, but the hip-gyrating fatty in the white jumpsuit Elvis.)
Another downside to popping a Xanax at 3am is that it's the middle of the afternoon and I still have a mouse in the closet.
