Benzos: My concern is being on two benzos at one time. Please review with your prescribing doc.

Klonopin is longer acting than Xanax and considered more sedating,thus often used H.S. With taking Neurontin tid a shorter acting anti-anxiety agent is better if needed for daytime use. However I wonder if the Lexapro dose has been considered since sometimes going to 15-20mg may reduce the need for daytime benzo's.

Yes.: Garcinia cambogia is a supplement that is supposed to suppress appetite. There are no known interactions with xanax, (alprazolam) Celexa or ultram.
