Is adderal 20mg amphtimene salts and Xanax (alprazolam) ok together dioagnosed adhd/anxiety

Is adderal 20mg amphtimene salts and Xanax (alprazolam) ok together dioagnosed adhd/anxiety

Not a big fan: Xanax (alprazolam) is not a great medication for ongoing use to treat anxiety; antidepressants usually are much better. That said, anxiety and adhd often co-exist, and it is common to treat both for best effect. Some nonstimulants such as atomoxetine and Guanfacine may help with both adhd and anxiety. ...Read more

I take hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, xanax, (alprazolam) and cymbalta. Xanax (alprazolam) as needed, cymbalta brand new - causing nausea. Can I take ondansetron?

I take hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, xanax, (alprazolam) and cymbalta. Xanax (alprazolam) as needed, cymbalta brand new - causing nausea. Can I take ondansetron?

Wouldn't recommend: you are already on several drugs which inhibit serotonin reuptake, increasing their levels - amitriptylene, Cymbalta (duloxetine) and cyclobenzaprine all have that potential, and ondansetron does it big time. This can result in the serotonin syndrome which is dangerous and even potentially fatal. All of these drugs also produce sedation. I would talk with your provider and pharmacist about safety of this. ...Read more
