How does opana ER 30 mg and Xanax 0.5 mg be taken together safely?

How does opana ER 30 mg and Xanax 0.5 mg be taken together safely?

If a doctor has: prescribed you both drugs, I am not sure why you are not asking the prescribing physician and/or the pharmacist who is dispensing the drug. If 2 doctors are prescribing, and one doesn't know about the other, that is a problem. If neither is prescribed, YOU SHOULD NOT be taking these meds. In general, ER drugs result in a steady state of opiate, and Xanax 0.5 mg could be taken at any time with it. ...Read more

Discuss it: You should discuss it with your dr. Xanax, even in the xr presentation, is a short half life benzodiazepine, with high addictive potential (compared to most of the alternatives within its class). Ask your dr for other alternatives if you feel this med is not for you. ...Read more

New pdoc Rx’d Xanax ER 1mg every 6hr as needed. Took @ 1pm. OK to take 1mg Klonopin (older RX) @ 9pm, or bad mix? (Can't sleep full night w/ Xanax ER)

Mixing is bad: Your physician prescribed those medications with the intention of you taking only those medications. Both Xanax and klonopin are in the same class of medications and could cause an overdose. Absolutely do not take those medications at the same time without your doctor knowing. This could result in death from respiratory depression secondary to benzodiazepine overdose. ...Read more

Why would a new dr suggest klonopin over Xanax when Xanax works& i went for cellulitus got no treatment for it which resulted in ER trip? Ridiculous

Too many open issues: Not sure what the er physician had in mind other than he/she may have thought that a longer acting benzo would be better. However, this should be discussed with your physician who prescribed the xanax in the first place. Not sure how the cellulitis and xanax are tied together either. ...Read more
