No interactions: or differences in absorption with ranitidine and alprazolam. You don't list Xanax on your medications, and 2 mg is a hefty dose of this very potent drug. This would be a dose that someone would have been built up to if lower doses didn't work. The starting dose of Xanax should be about 0.5 mg if you have not been on it before. If it is prescribed for you, your doctor/pharmacist can advise you.
