Is there any dangerous interaction between Xanax (alprazolam) and Atenolol??

Define doses used: Dangerous? You mean as in "can kill a person? " Or do you mean to the point where you could pass out, hit your head and have to go to the hospital for a few stitches? There's a potential blood pressure could be lowered more than expected seeing as how atenolol lowers pressure & Xanax (alprazolam) is a sedative type of drug.

Is it safe to take. 5mg of Xanax (alprazolam) while on 25mg of atenolol? Would it drop my BP too much?

No problems: Atenolol and xanax (alprazolam) may have additive effects in lowering your blood pressure. Because xanax (alprazolam) has a quick onset, and atenolol slower, there is no problem for you to take them together. Always ask your doctor before taking any new medicines. ...Read more

.5mg of sedoxil or. 25 of Xanax (alprazolam)? which is best when anxiety is acting up? I'm on atenolol 25mg daily.

.5mg of sedoxil or. 25 of Xanax (alprazolam)? which is best when anxiety is acting up? I'm on atenolol 25mg daily.

Neither: Nowadays we don't use benzos alone in treatment of Anxiety D/O's. We use medications that regulate anxiety & add a small dosage of Clonazepam (at our center we start with 0.125mg, & it works). Xanax (alprazolam) is short acting & we don't use because of inter-dose withdrawal & increase in baseline anxiety. Sedoxil (Mexazolam) is not available in US, very long acting and leads to accumulation. Feel better. ...Read more

Can I use plexus slim with levothyroxine atenolol hctz Lexapro Vyvanse Suboxone & xanax (alprazolam)? Thanks so much! Plexus slim is all natural...

plexus slim review, side effects, ingredients, ; price.
. This particular diet agents can cause liver damage. It has garcinia cambodia in it. It has very little to recommend in terms of actual weight loss. It would be a waste of your money. You don't put your doses down of Suboxone and xanax (alprazolam). I hope that your Suboxone prescriber is aware of the xanax (alprazolam).I also hope that you are aware of the potential risks of the combination. It is not an absolute contraindication to use them both together, but caution certainly is encouraged and I think that a sleep study on the combination should be done to make sure that you are not having any formof obstructive or central apnea, both of which could lead to weight gain. Best wishes. ...Read more

Could drug interactions with my meds being prescribed be really messing me up clonadine, atenelol, amlodopine, xanex, suboxone, omerperazole. Help me pls?

Yes, indeed!: Did one physician prescribe all of these? If so - you need to consider another provider. If not, you need always to inform any one of them about other drugs you take. All have some risk with just about all of the others, but the worst is between Xanax (alprazolam) and Suboxone. Respiratory distress is possible even coma or death - so call your doctor (s) ASAP or go to ER or a good pharmacist w/ the bottles. ...Read more
