I do not believe : Xanax (alprazolam) is a depressant while caffeine is a stimulant. It is not a great combination to take regularly however I do not se a problem with it if it is here and there few times a month but nothing regular. Make up you mind do you want to be wide awake or relaxed...caffeine can also exacerbate panic attacks and anxiety whoch is what Xanax (alprazolam) main use
