I don't like this:
I was not aware they started making these, but I can say I do not like the idea. Xanax (alprazolam) is already one of the most abuse prescription drugs because of how fast it starts to work. The ODT versions of things work even faster than their regular pill-form counterparts, which makes a xanax (alprazolam) ODT potentially very fast, very addictive and very dangerous. I would not recommend that.

I had a MRI today and given 6 xanax (alprazolam) tablets and I am on a daily dose 75 MG of amatripalyn. Will I be ok?
Most likely: It's not entirely clear what you're asking. The MRI itself should be harmless. Taking Xanax (alprazolam) as prescribed, even with your amitriptyline, should be fine (and help you relax). It's not a good idea to take Xanax (alprazolam) in higher doses or more often than prescribed.

Is it common for a person to be prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) 1mg, lamictal XR 25- 100mg, seroquel 150 & 200mg, & luvox 100mg tablets on a daily basis?
It: It is common for a person to take several medications. While the final decision of what medications to prescribe or not prescribe rests with the treating physician who has thoroughly examined the patient, it is important to keep in mind that the frequency of side effects depends on the number of medications that the person is taking.

However, the medications that you listed have the following main uses: xanax (alprazolam) is to treat anxiety, Lamictal is to treat seizures and may be beneficial in preventing bipolar illness, seroquel is to treat schizophrenia and several other conditions, including bipolar illness, and Luvox is an antidepressant that belongs to the ssri class.

I've been taking 1/2 of 0.25 Xanax (alprazolam) twice daily Will I have withdrawls if I go two days w/out taking them? I have to wait for my refill until then.
Not likely: This is a pretty small dose, but if you are running out before you are supposed to, you are either taking more than was prescribed, or a drug that was supposed to be used very occasionally is now being used more often. You need to talk to the prescriber about how you are taking them. Benzodiazepines are not the best drugs for longer-term anxiety, and your doctor can discuss alternatives. ...Read more
