So when used regularly with multiple doses to treat anxiety, it is associated with inter-dose withdrawal, tolerance and a resulting increase level of baseline anxiety. So in anxiety clinics, we use it only in cases of " flight , dentist or other infrequent anxieties, ...Read more
Hard to say: Xanax (alprazolam) is much more potent than temazepam. You also have not shared the dosage of your xanax (alprazolam). I suggest discussing with your own physician, who knows what s/he gave you. If these have been obtained illegally, please don't use them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If a doctor has: prescribed you both drugs, I am not sure why you are not asking the prescribing physician and/or the pharmacist who is dispensing the drug. If 2 doctors are prescribing, and one doesn't know about the other, that is a problem. If neither is prescribed, YOU SHOULD NOT be taking these meds. In general, ER drugs result in a steady state of opiate, and Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 mg could be taken at any time with it. ...Read more
Was put on remeron 30 mg, 4 mg Valium, .2 mg clonidine, 6 mg melatonin and 50 mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for chronic insomnia spaced apart by an hour. Is this a lot?
Yes: It is not a good idea to mix all these drugs together since no one really knows what the outcome of the interaction may be given some many variables. If you have had so much problem falling asleep, consider getting a sleep study which may reveal the cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can i take melatonin? I currently take neurontion 300 mg t.I.D., qd, klonopin 0.5 mg b.I.D., prn, Soma 350 mg h.S., tylenol (acetaminophen) qd
Not necessarily: As a starting dose that is definetely a high dose, but if you have been on it for while it is a moderate dose. Tolerance may occur which means that after a while the same dose is no longer effective. Doses more than 40-60 mg are unlikely to have increased benefit and something else should be considered. Talk to prescribing coctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was prescribed Prozac 40 mg, Ritalin 10 mg, Concerta 108 mg, Remeron 30 mg and Risperdal 3 mg. Is this number of drugs safe?
Depends...: on what you and your doctor decide together. There are theoretically some interactions among the drugs you've listed, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will experience them. It's difficult to know all of the possible interactions when you have this many medications in combination. Some of the drugs' metabolism could be affected or you may have increased risk of side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I took two pills last night. One oxazepam 30 mg and one Xanax (alprazolam) 2 mg and it helped my anxiety and sleep a lot! is this a good thing? I woke refreshed.
I have been prescribed alprazolam & oxazepam for a long flight, what is a medical safe amount to take together. I need to sleep for my anxiety?
Similarities: Hi. Both of this benzo's have a similar half-life, although alprazolam hits faster. You probably don't need to take BOTH since they have the same mechanism of action and duration of action. Talk with the prescribing doctor about this, and whether he/she thinks you need BOTH. Good luck and travel safely! ...Read more
Will alprazolam show a false positive for nordiazepam and or oxazepam. The confirmation test was done via gc/ms from the lab i use. ?
Probably yes: My educated "guess" is that most drug blood screening is geared toward "groups" or "classes" of substances. Alprazolam, diazepam, lorazepam, and the others you mentioned are all considered to be in the class of benzodiazopine derivatives. Use of any of them will trigger a positive response, but is not specific to which is in your system. Other classes include thc, cocaine, crystal meth, etoh, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Xanax (alprazolam) with asprin? Took Xanax (alprazolam) at midnight. Is it ok to take asprin at 5:30 am?
How long does oxazepam 30 mg stay in your system. I take 20 tablets a day and have a Urine test to complete.
20 tablets?: That sounds like a huge dose. That means the patient should be working with 1 primary care doctor and 1 psychiatrist... with only 1 doctor prescribing any and all drugs with addiction or abuse potential. The drug probably stays around for several days when using normal doses, and likely longer for huge doses. Bad things happen if the drug is suddenly stopped. A urine test should be an honest one. ...Read more

Max dose of xanax (alprazolam) a day for a 30 year old female weight 156 lbs? Have script for .25 3 x a day but past few days anxiety has been through the roof
Been on same Xanax (alprazolam) dose for 4yrs due to severe anxiety/panic (1mg as needed, 30/month rx)- saved my life. Why r drs so averse 2 prescribing it now?
Prevention: Most doctors would want to help prevent panic attacks -- rather than wait for them to happen, and then treat sporadically with xanax (alprazolam). Xanax (alprazolam) is meant to be temporary, can be habit-forming, and is not preventative for panic. Other medications, such as ssri's, etc, are preventive; it's also important to work on the anxiety in psychotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Took my last Xanax (alprazolam) at 8:30 for anxiety.Have prior prescribed clonapin. I've NEVER taken both on same day. Can I safely take 1mg clon at 11:30 tonight?
Benzodiazepine: Xanax (alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine that has a fairly short half-life. This can increase the risk of addiction to the medication. There are other benzodiazepines with longer half-lives. I like those better, if I have to use a benzodiazepine with a patient. There are risks with this medication that includes addiction , dependence, some have some constipation, over-sedation, and respiratory suppression. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
