I took 4 mg Xanax (alprazolam) prescribed , but I'm like really sick and have a fever was wondering if I can take NyQuil to help with the fever and sickness?
Large dose: the largest alprazolam (xanax) tablet is 2 mg, and that is already a high dose, so I don't know exactly what you are taking, or why it was prescribed. Xanax is generally given initially as 0.5 or even 0.25 mg three or four times daily, and a common dose might be 1 mg three times a day. NyQuill is meant for cough, and to treat fever aspirin, acetaminophen or motrin works best & is ok with xanax. ...Read more

Not recommended: Nyquil is risky w/ both the other drugs. Risks high BP w/ Adderall and can cause confusion, dizziness, etc w/ Xanax (alprazolam). W/o a Rx, you ought not take Adderall anyway. These are serious drugs, be careful. Your body is a valuable possession, take care of it! Be well! ...Read more

Yes, but why?: Babyshiela1991--based on your previous question, these meds are not helping you and so why take them? I suggest that you reconsult your doc and really talk about how you feel.

Why?: I am not sure why you would need to take two different benzodiazapines at the same time. Both have potential to build tolerance. I would not prescribe both at the same time to a patient, however different providers select different options. Please discuss this fully with your prescribing provider. Take care. ...Read more
