Too many meds: You are mixing too many sedating medications together. Please discuss your complete list of medications with you surgeon or his PA, NP and or your pharmacist. I am assuming that you got these medicines from different pharmacies. Xanax is a benzodiapine and Nucynta (tapentadol) and Oxycodone are narcotic medicines. Flexeril is a muscle relaxant. All of these medicines are sedating, but in different ways.
