Is it ok to take melatonin with xanax and zoloft. Take Zolof in the morning and not able to sleep. Take xsnax before?
Alprazolam is a short acting benzodiazepine, it does not last long in the system.

I had a Jack Daniels and coke about 2 hours ago, I usually take a Xanax (alprazolam) to help me sleep, I always just take one half. Am I ok to do so?
Not so good an idea: Sleep is important, and I understand wanting help for this. But it's really important to get a good evaluation and diagnosis of your sleep problem before medicating it. For instance, depression can cause sleep difficulties, and so can anxiety disorders. If these aren't treated, you'll end up chasing your tail with habituating meds like xanax (alprazolam) & ambien, optimizing neither. A psychiatrist can help. ...Read more

Mixing is bad: Your physician prescribed those medications with the intention of you taking only those medications.

Research sleep hygiene. And avoid sedative-hypnotics like Ambien (zolpidem). ...Read more
