Subsequently approved for obsessive compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Significantly safer and much better ...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 been on. 25mg taken as needed for 6 months once a day. Now on 20mg of Prozac will this lesson my need for xanax (alprazolam)?
Hopefully: Prozac has anti-anxiety effects but works differently from xanax (alprazolam). Xanax (alprazolam) also works more immediately, and can also be habit-forming. Once the Prozac is on board for 6-8 weeks, you might discuss with your doctor tapering the xanax (alprazolam). Also, cognitive behavioral therapy will significantly boost the effectiveness of your treatment. You can ask your psychiatrist for referrals, starting now. ...Read more

Have been on 20mg of Prozac for a month and. 25mg of Xanax (alprazolam) once a day for about 8 months. Will the need for Xanax (alprazolam) subside?
It depends: Assuming that you are being treated for an anxiety disorder, I would suggest that there should have been more progress by now, 8 months into your treatment. The Prozac dose may need to be increased; or it may need to be replaced by another antidepressant. Generally, as the anxiety lessens, the xanax (alprazolam) can be decreased or stopped, because the antidepressant is doing all the work. ...Read more
I need my scripts of 1mlg xanax (alprazolam) 4 times a day and Prozac back I need to know of I can get them before I can pay can't afford to not get what I need?
Prozac/fluoxetine is: A Wal-Mart $4 prescription. Your prescriber may be willing to call in your script. It is wise (if you have not yet done so) to develop anxiety management strategies to replace your use of Xanax (alprazolam). If you cannot afford a therapist check with local mental health regarding sliding scale program. There are self-guided books and support groups and church programs in some areas. Best regards for relief. ...Read more
I was supposed to start taking Prozac 10 mg tonight with my Xanax (alprazolam) but accidently confused them and ended uptaking 15 mg of prozac. Will that be ok?
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

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
I am just about done weaning off prozac. Also just about done with. 25mg of xanax (alprazolam). Can I take valerian?
Is it safe to take propranolol, xanax, (alprazolam) prozac, and zzzquil together? I don't take them all at once but space them out.

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
Psyciatrist gives me 3months to find therapist, threatens to stop all my meds if I don't by then. I'm on 9 prozac to xanax (alprazolam) other for PTSDcan he do that?
Medication: Alone is not a good thing. The combination of meds and therapy has been found to be most helpful for many conditions. Generally speaking, if your psychiatrist gives you notice and provides the names of other docs to refer you to, he/she can stop seeing you. Peace and good health. Why do you resist therapy? As if group therapy is ok which you may be more open to. ...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!
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
How can I get over emotophobia? I take Prozac and Xanax (alprazolam) for panic disorder. But I panic once my stomach makes noises. I'm hypoglycemic n hypothyroid.
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

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
Left arm pain (arm pit & back) been to ER so many x psych dr has me on Xanax (alprazolam) Prozac & propanonlol. Nothing helps. What could it be?
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

Why won't ny psychiatrist put me on Xanax (alprazolam) and zoloft? I requested it because I know how my body reacts to it. Prozac lamitical klonopin don't help
Alprazolam (Xanax): Very high abuse potential, dependence, very short half-life, and not indicated for long term use. Zoloft alone can be very effective for depression and anxiety. By requesting xanax, (alprazolam) any physician will be concerned about abuse potential. There are many better options for anxiety. Try talking to your doctor about your specific symptoms and let your doctor help you determine best treatment. ...Read more

Bring it up: Doctors can't always tell what is going on - we get most of our information from the history we are given. Be sure to mention the depression and panic to your doctor. He will then guide the discussion to determine what medications would be the greatest benefit to you. He will give you what is needed but he has to know the symptoms you are experiencing! ...Read more
