Is it ok to take a dramamine with half a xanax (alprazolam). 0.25 is the Xanax (alprazolam) dose but i take half of one.

Is it ok to take a dramamine with half a xanax (alprazolam). 0.25 is the Xanax (alprazolam) dose but i take half of one.

Yes: I believe the dose of xanax (alprazolam) that you are taking is so low that I am not sure it is even therapeutic. The dose of dramamine you should take is 12.5 mgm. Dramamine (meclizine) over the counter is usually 25 mgm. So do not drive if you take both of these drugs. In short, i believe you can take both drugs if you take the lower dose of dramamine (12.5 mgm.). ...Read more
