Daily xanax (alprazolam): Daily xanax (alprazolam) = treat symptoms instead of Rx cause of problems, putting you in danger of maintain and worsening disease. Need higher dose of prozac as 10mg is only starting dose. Still need Rx at 62 means may need proper Rx for life unless problem is very very situational. ...Read more

Is it ok to take xanax amitriptyline imatrax and Tylenol 4 together????

Is it ok to take xanax amitriptyline imatrax and Tylenol 4 together????

I wouldn't.: Tylenol with Codeine #4 (acetaminophen / codeine) plus Xanax (alprazolam) can cause CNS depression
& lead to respiratory distress, coma, or death. Combining codeine & amitriptyline or mixing amitriptyline & Xanax can cause "dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, & difficulty concentrating" per DRUGS. COM. ...Read more

I was prescribed 20 mg of Prozac daily, 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) as needed for panic disorder and already take 40 mg of ritalin a day. Is this safe?

Balanced combo: It is a safe combination mental/mood disorders. The only interaction is xanax (alprazolam) increases and Ritalin decreases sedation and drowsiness. However in the doses you mentioned is balanced.
If any concern contact your treating physician for clarification.
Rec. Ask your treating doctor about the biofeedback. ...Read more

I am just about done weaning off prozac. Also just about done with. 25mg of xanax (alprazolam). Can I take valerian?

I am just about done weaning off prozac. Also just about done with. 25mg of xanax (alprazolam). Can I take valerian?

Valerian xanax (alprazolam): Valerian is extremely weak compared to xanax (alprazolam). If you wean off your meds under doctor's advice, then you are safe. Xanax (alprazolam) is never to be taken on a daily basis as it rapidly causes dependence. ...Read more

I take Prozac and Xanax (alprazolam) for my panic attacks, but it seems it doesn't help, they have been more frequent lately, what else is recommended?

Therapy: Taking medications can certainly be helpful, but working with a therapist in conjunction with meds is ideal. The medications can reduce the symptoms and the therapy teaches you ways to eliminate them and prevent recurrence. ...Read more

I take Prozac and have been taking duromine 30 for the past 2 weeks, is this safe and can I also take Xanax (alprazolam) or Valium at night for anxiety?

BZD+stimulant+SSRI: Duromine (phentermine) is a stimulant which can lead to worsened anxiety and insomnia. It can also cause or worsen depression. Similar to Ativan and xanax, (alprazolam) this medication can be habit forming, tolerance and dependance can occur, and a vicious cycle may set in. The question is best answered by the prescribing physician. ...Read more

I take 60mg Prozac each morning and 20-50 mg of adderall a day and 2mg of Xanax (alprazolam) at night to sleep. Xanax (alprazolam) isn't helping can I take on more 1mg tonight!

I take 60mg Prozac each morning and 20-50 mg of adderall a day and 2mg of Xanax (alprazolam) at night to sleep. Xanax (alprazolam) isn't helping can I take on more 1mg tonight!

Stop the madness!: You are on major medicines from a competent physician and are asking doctors who don't know you for permission to take more meds??? Sleep is necessary for good health and disrupted sleep needs to be treated. Perhaps your meds are causing the insomnia, or stimulant drinks, or stress, or psychiatric disease itself. Call the prescriber to discuss this, and quit trying to circumvent him/her. ...Read more

Can I take oxyelite pro with Prozac and xanax (alprazolam)?

NO: Oxyelite pro has dmaa in it -- a synthetic substance not really from geraniums. It can increase blood pressure and cause heart attacks. The fda banned sales last year. It is a dangerous substance in itself. If you're on Prozac & xanax, (alprazolam) it sounds like you have some anxiety -- which could surely worsen with anything that has dmaa in it. Please don't use it. ...Read more

Use Xanax (alprazolam) 0.25mg, prozac 20mg daily also take ritalin 10mg but only for the times that I need to study cause don't have adhd. Is it safe take them both?

Heel-toe expert only: First, you should not use meds that have not been prescribed to you for a specific condition. I don't understand what 0.25mg Xanax (alprazolam) can help with taken once daily. It doesn't last long enough to treat anxiety all day. Ritalin plus Xanax (alprazolam) is like pressing the gas pedal and brake at the same time. For an expert driver it's a great maneuver, for an amateur it could spell disaster. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed Prozac 20 mg, Xanax. 25 usually take half when needed. I've had bad heartburn. Is it okay to take omeprazole also as I have been.

Possible.: Prozac, xanax and Prilosec can all interact with each other in the liver. However Prozac and xanax interact with each other too. Adding Prilosec makes the chance of interaction higher. However, alot of people take this and have no troubles. Perhaps if this is for short term problem a simple anti-acid may work just as well and have no side effects. ...Read more

I started Prozac today n I took it this morning I wanted to know if its safe to take my Xanax (alprazolam) at bedtime?

Xanax (alprazolam) prozac: These two medicines are used together. If your experience with prozac was not negative today, then taking xanax (alprazolam) tonight will be safe. If you can get by with half dose of xanax (alprazolam), then you may be better off, but that adjustment is probably not essential. ...Read more

I have ITP - never needed treatment. I'm on Prozac for anxiety. What can I take that is safe if I have a headache? Tylenol (acetaminophen)? Aleve?

I have ITP - never needed treatment. I'm on Prozac for anxiety. What can I take that is safe if I have a headache? Tylenol (acetaminophen)? Aleve?

Acetaminophen: Acetaminophen (Tylenol (acetaminophen) and many other over the counter meds) is safe because unlike Aleve (ibuprofen) it has no effect on platelet function. Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) do affect platelet function, which increases risk of bleeding, which is already increased in ITP due a lower platelet count. ...Read more

Could I take Xanax (alprazolam) and Ritalin? Have anxiety/depression/add w/o hyperactivity and the Ritalin makes me somewhat irritable. Also take Prozac 40mg.

Could I take Xanax (alprazolam) and Ritalin? Have anxiety/depression/add w/o hyperactivity and the Ritalin makes me somewhat irritable. Also take Prozac 40mg.

Short-acting Ritalin (methylphenidate): Works 20-60 min. After a dose, peaks at 1-2 hours & wears off in 3-4 hours. Irritability & anxiety are either side effects or rebound effects as dose wears off. Multiple daily doses must be taken 30 minutes before the prior dose wears off. Long- acting stimulants or non-stimulants that last 24/7 after 4-6 wks. Are preferable, even for ADHD-Primarily Inattentive Type. Talk to your psychiatrist. ...Read more

I am 62 and on 10mg of Prozac and. 25mg of xanax, (alprazolam) is it okay to have a glass of wine once in a while?

YES, usually!: Because xanax (alprazolam) is a tranquilizer that binds to the same receptor complex in the brain as ethanol (alcohol), they can amplify each other's effects! I've seen people who usually have no problem with a glass of wine or two, fall face down in their plate after taking a tranquilizer beforehand! So you must be very careful... But, generally, one glass of red wine (has resveritol) is good 4u! ...Read more

Thinking of asking for Buspar, (buspirone) so I don't have to be on Xanax, added to my Prozac and maybe an up on my dose (20 to 30). Thoughts?

Anxiety: Buspirone is approved for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder and is sometimes used off-label for other anxiety disorders and depression. For some patients it is very effective. Higher doses of an SSRI such as fluoxetine (Prozac) are often effective for anxiety. I would ask your physician about both of these changes, but DO NOT stop the Xanax (alprazolam) on your own, this can be very dangerous. ...Read more
