My adult drug addict son found a doctor who prescribed: adderall; klonopin, xanax, (alprazolam) lortab and ibuprofen. He is veryill and is having psychotic episodes. What should I do?
Save his life: Call 911 and request help. While you cannot force him to get help, police officers can assess him. If they find him at risk for imminent harm due to a psychiatric or medical problem impairing his judgment, they may choose to transport him to an emergency room for assessment. Best wishes. You are allowed certainly to report the prescribing doctor to your state board. ...Read more

My doctor closed his practice suddenly and my Xanax & adderall scripts are due in about 1 week. He never sent new scripts to pharmacy and I haven’t been able to secure another doctor yet. I fear withdrawal could cause relapse of Myelitis. Advice?
In-person care: A patient with such medication needs and having such disorders needs in-person care for many or most of her visits, meaning she needs to get established with a primary care doctor and a psychiatrist as soon as possible. When she books appointments with those 2 new doctors for in-person visits, she can ask where the recommended Urgent Care local clinics are, if needing to use an Urgent Care clinic. ...Read more
I am taking lexapro, topamax, buspar, Xanax, adderall xr, and lunesta (eszopiclone) do you think my doctor has me on to many medications?
Review with doctor: Agree with comments made by others re drug interactions and need to justify each med. Meantime, write down each med/dose/when started/possible side effects and review each one with prescribing doctor. Good to question if too many meds. Write down when you felt your best and worst since on these meds. Tell doctor you'd like to cut back meds and how to do that. Can do same if you want a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

"Adderall feeling"?: You have not described this "adderall feeling" you're getting. But if Adderall is making you jumpy or agitated, xanax (alprazolam) may temporarily suppress this. However, if having difficulty with Adderall I recommend discussing it with your prescribing physician instead. This can be addressed without adding a potentially addictive medication like xanax (alprazolam). ...Read more
Is it ok to take 0.25mg Xanax to temper occasional anxiousness due to newly prescribed Adderall XR 30mg?
Best not: An initial dose of 30mg Adderal would be expected to cause some anxiousness. Best talk to your provider about possibly a lower dose. Xanax does not interact with Adderal in a bad way, it's just best to address the root of the problem. If you find you need 30mg, the side effects are likely to diminish with time. ...Read more

For over 5 yrs I was prescribed both Adderall XR 30mg and Xanax (alprazolam) 1mg by fam dr. Now seeing diff dr and he said these 2 meds no good together?
True: Everyone is different, but generally these medications work at cross purposes, as Adderal is a stimulant and xanax (alprazolam) is a sedative. The concern is that neither will work as well as it should, and you will have more side effects than with either alone. It is hard to switch tracks after 5 years but I would give your new doctor a chance ...Read more
