I take 25mg zoloft, 100mg metoprolol tartrate, and 50 mg Xanax (alprazolam) as needed. I did take a xanaz last night and 120 mg oxycodone. Whole day I was out of it and dizzy, unable to do anything. Is this norma?

Russian Roulette: Combining sedatives or anti depressives with narcotics and/or alcohol is exactly like playing russian roulette. This is due to the fact that these medications when taken together can adversely affect the respiratory drive, which is the unconscious impulse to continue breathing. It is among the leading causes of death among young people today, let alone older more vulnerable people. ...Read more

I take metoprolol 25mg every night for BP and palps for a week now. Was prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) 25mg but only take half as needed for anxiety. Is this safe?

Yes: I think you meant Xanax (alprazolam) 0.25mg as the dose. You said it was prescribed. Yes it is safe for you to take. Talk with your doctor about your treatment options. Be sure to follow your doctor's advice about the use of Xanax (alprazolam). It does have a risk for addiction. Do not combine it with alcohol or sedating medicine. Be careful about driving while on the medication. Best wishes! ...Read more

My doctor prescribed me celexa, Xanax, (alprazolam) and metoprolol. Is it safe to take all of these at once? I also deliver pizza for a living. Need to stay awake!

Medications: All three of these can cause tiredness, sleepiness, drowsiness, depending on the dose, person, and reaction to medication. I would recommend though, primarily, that you do not take xanax (alprazolam) when you are driving. The others are considered safe to take when driving, and once you are stabilized on them and used to them, then you really not experience much fatigue from the metoprolol and celexa. ...Read more

Adverse drug reactions from mixing lexapro, Xanax (alprazolam) and metoprolol?

No, should be OK: These medications may be used together and should not cause any significant interactions. There is a slight chance of a small increase in the blood level of metoprolol caused by the lexapro, (escitalopram) but it is unlikely that this would be significant. ...Read more

One glass: You are already taking a couple of sedatives. Combining with alcohol can be dangerous. Would limit to one glass a day max. If you need more to relax then maybe you need to look into other techniques like exercise, yoga, stretching, meditation etc. ...Read more

Low dose: That is a very small dose of xanax, (alprazolam) and your urine, especially if you drink lots of fluids, may be dilute enough that the results fall below the limits of detection of the specific test and will be reported as negative. In general, the first morning urine of the day is the most concentrated, and that specimen is more likely to be positive. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to drink Xanax (alprazolam) after two beers?

Is it possible for me to drink Xanax (alprazolam) after two beers?

Not advisable: First of all you just asked me if it's possible to drink xanax (alprazolam). That alone makes me think that you're already intoxicated. No one should have two beers or more plus a xanax (alprazolam). You're likely to drink yourself under the table with the combination. There are also other dangers associated with it such as the cessation of breathing. Please don't do it. And especially, do not drink and drive. ...Read more

I'm out of Xanax (alprazolam) would robaxin hold me over til my refill?

Xanax (alprazolam) & robaxin: Are two very different medications. If you are concerned about withdrawal from xanax (alprazolam) - I don't think robaxin (methocarbamol) will prevent that. However, if you are looking to calm yourself - sometimes robaxin can be calming. Please discuss with your physician/ psychiatrist. ...Read more
