Yes: You will have a dry mouth and possibly increased sedation. Only take as prescribed by your doctor who knows you!

Yes: if you are traveling and experiencing anxiety and air or sea sickness, both medications can be used. The prescribing doctor needs to know about it, and if you have received it from one doctor, that doctor should be the one you are asking, or the dispensing pharmacist, who can ask you necessary questions and knows your medication history. People should be asking their prescribers/pharmacists.

A 46-year-old member asked:

Is Xanax (alprazolam) ever used to help treat adjustment disorder in addition to counseling?

Dr. Leonard Spishakoff
Specializes in Addiction Medicine
Not the first choice: Adjustment disorder should be addressed with counseling, behavior modification etc if anxiolytics (sedatives) are needed then Buspar (buspirone) is good choice as benadryyl as well as these are sedating and non addicting.

How could I be addicted to fioricet but have been taking Xanax (alprazolam) for panic and have never abused it/felt the urge?

Both are addictive: If you are getting Xanax (alprazolam) on a regular basis you might not have known that you were addicted. Try stopping for a number of days, a few weeks, see if you have the urge for that as well. Barbiturates (fioricet) and benzodiazepines (xanax) are both "downers" and both have tachyphylaxis (habituation) qualities.

Better meds: Xanax (alprazolam) is short-acting and addictive....There are better, safer meds. It is sometimes effective, but only as a last resort....

Anxiety: Most people who stop xanax (alprazolam) suddenly feel an increase in anxiety. I am not certain what is meant by your head "feeling frozen" but i know xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal is uncomfortable.

Hyoscine butylbromide and alprazolam?

Sedation: There is no direct drug interaction between these 2 that i can find. But you might become more sleepy and sedated than with either alone -- they both can produce that effect.
