can you take xanax (alprazolam) before a barium swallow? how common is it to have an allergic reaction to the barium contrast?

Allergic Rxn: I wouldn't recommend the xanax (alprazolam) beforehand. Ask your doctor about this, though. Reactions to barium are extremely uncommon. Nothing to worry about.
