I take 2mgs of xanax (alprazolam) 3x daily (started at .5mg 4x 35 years ago). Is 10mgs oxycodone 2x and 15mgs morphine ER 2x for back diseases safe with the xanax (alprazolam)?

This is an epidemic, so it is pretty safe to say that opiates are NOT safe medications unless under the CLOSE supervision of a Dr! http://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/epidemic/index.html ...Read more
