I was prescibed trazodone for insomnia but had allergy next he prescibed Ambien but makes me feel weird, is it bad to suggest Xanax (alprazolam) or other med?

Cause for insomnia?: Referral (possibly to psychiatrist) for thorough evaluation of your insomnia might be the smartest request you could make. It's better than asking for more medicines when it's not clear "why" you're having this problem. If you're still taking vyvanse (as on your other info), this may be related. Ambien (zolpidem) can indeed result in feeling "weird" -- also doing odd things at night after taking it. ...Read more

I recently have been prescribed xanax. I took 1 pill. 25 at 11am. Is it safe to take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) now at 10:04pm?? My allergies are bugging me.

Yes: It is almost 12hrs since you last xanax dose. The effect of xanax is usually much shorter than 12hrs, so it is safe to take benadryl (diphenhydramine). You may want to consider non-sedating antihistamine, like zyrtec, claritin, or allegra, which are generally safe to use with anti-anxiety medications. ...Read more

Don't; Probably Bad: We don't know what lipo 6 black does really. Many interactions can occur with prescription meds and these kinds of proprietary blends.

I took about 4 10 mg valiums and 1 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) bar together for 4 days, same dose of meds each day. I have a drug test in 16 days. Will I pass or fail?

Pass: If you are not a chronic user and this was a one time thing, most likely you will pass. If you are taking the valium daily, it can stay in your system for up to 30 days. It is dangerous to take these two drugs together if this is not a prescription and under close supervision of a doctor. They work in the same way and can exacerbate the sedative effects. Please enter treatment if addiction. ...Read more
