Alprazolam Vs Bromazepam
Is it safe to take bromazepam 3mg at night with 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) and 10 mg escitalopram in the morning?
No: It is never recommended to take two benzodiazepines (any anti-Anxiety drug ending in - pam) as the can lead as their effect is amplified together. Which in this case means that side effects like sedation, dizziness would become unmanageable and dangerous all the way to respiratory depression (breathing slows down and may stop). Ask you psychiatrist about which one to stay on please. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed me first bromazepam for sleeping disorder for 2 weeks and now he prescribed me xanax (alprazolam).What's the difference of these 2 meds?
Poor hypnotics: Neither one of these is a good hypnotic. Bromazepam is only a hypnotic at high doses. Xanax, (alprazolam) when studied in a sleep lab, loses its hypnotic benefit within a matter of days. Temazepam would be a better sleep medication if available where you live. Best wishes.

I'm 22 yrs old male 77kg. I take oxycodone, bromazepam, multivitamins, xanax (alprazolam).... I know these medications kill my liver. What medications should I take to save my liver? Thank you

Stage fright or: Performance anxiety is best treated with a beta blocker called propranolol. It does not have potential abuse and does not make you tired. Anxiety causes our heart to race, hands to tremble, tongue to shake. Xanax (alprazolam) and other sedatives will relax your muscles and affect your memory. Ask your doctor for beta blockers which are effective and safe to take short before stage time or flying. ...Read more
1 year on benzos: Lexotan 3mg a day for 6 m, Tranxene 10mg a day for 4 m, Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5mg a day for 2 m and now on Klonopin 0.5mg a day. HOW to taper?
Clarification: Just to clarify - It sounds like you are only taking the Klonopin (clonazepam) currently? You can titrate off of Klonopin (clonazepam) by decreasing dose to 0.25 mg every 12 hours x 7 days then 0.25 mg. At night only x 5 days, then discontinue. This method works very well for my pts. And avoids the unpleasant side effects. You can be more aggressive, but I find greater success occurs with the slow method. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Xanax (alprazolam) taper: This is a short acting benzo which can be difficult to come off. I usually switch people to the equivalent Klonopin dose (about have the mg dose of xanax (alprazolam) per day) and reduce the daily dose by 0.25mg every week. Ie it would take 1 month to come off 1mg of Klonopin which is equivalent to about 2mg of xanax (alprazolam). ...Read more
Yes: When combined with alcohol and other sedatives, you are more likely to blackout if taking alprazolam (Xanax).

Ask your doctor: While these are similar medicines, they are not the same thing.

The bottom line is that you shouldn't substitute any prescription med for another without consulting with the doctor (s) who prescribed them. ...Read more
