I wonder why you're curious, because high doses of ANY drug do no good whatever. Azor is the benzo' Alprazolam, usually used in doses of 1/4 to 1.2 mg three times daily, up to a maximum normal usage of 4 mg a day. So 30 mg would be about a week's worth, and an overdose, and a thoroughly dreadful idea. At the least it would put a person into a deep sleep, though much would depend on many factors, including age, physical health, the body's experience at taking benzo's before, and so on. There are some unpleasant possible effects, and also some treatments which can help to reverse these effects, if the person comes under good medical care.
Don't think about taking ANY drug in ANY dose higher than what is prescribed.
