That's curious....: Allergic reactions are when the body's immune system detect something that it recognizes as a foreign substance (ingested, contact through skin, food or medicine, or in the case of auto-immure diseases, it's own cells). One reax is to mobilize cells that secrete anti-histamines to fight the allergic reax. So, allergic relax to antihistamine would be very unusual.

After just one night of useing xanax, (alprazolam)
antihistamines or melatonin to induce sleep, I am awake the entire
night! never used to have this reaction. Why?
Not the right combo: Each of these meds can help sleep or agitate. Combining them all on the first night? Melatonin is mostly benign but when used with vitamin b6 (think 5 hour energy) agitation can result. Some brands still include b6. Antihistamines are known to produce agitation in susceptible people. They learn who they are. Xanax (alprazolam) has a rapid onset but the rapid stop can agitate and cause reuse (think addiction). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See Below: There are two phases to benzodiazepine withdrawal: 1.Acute phase - lasting 7 days to 90 days 2.Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) â€“ lasting up to 2 years The length of time to get completely free of the benzodiazepines varies according to the benzodiazepine that the patient was taking. A short acting drug like Xanax (alprazolam) has a short acute withdrawal phase, usually lasting around 7 days. A long acting benzodiazepine like Klonopin can have acute withdrawal symptoms that last 90 days. The Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) is usually mild and essentially consists of a slight increase in anxiety and insomnia. Patients find themselves worrying more than they need to, but over time this goes away. The symptoms can usually be helped with a combination of counseling, support, and sometimes non-addictive medicines. ...Read more
Depends: Withdrawal symptoms indicate that physical dependence has developed. If tapered and stopped responsibly, there are no withdrawal symptoms -- usually another drug is substituted to withdraw from. If it is precipitous, withdrawal symptoms can last from about 7 to 14 days. But symptoms that alprazolam was treating can re-emerge. If addicted, cravings and a prolonged withdrawal syndrome may develop ...Read more
How often do you see paradoxical reactions to Valium and xanax (alprazolam)? Is it often or infrequent
Not very common: A paradoxical reaction to a med is one that causes the opposite of usual expected effect. In a benzodiazepine it would be anxiety, insomnia, over-stimulation or agitation. If this occurs, one would suspect an unidentified underlying problem as associative cause (such as bipolar disorder, thyroid disease, drug abuse). In any case, discontinuation would be indicated & a search for other causes made. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
