Iam taking cipralx 20mg per day and Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 per day and i want to use fat reduction pills (lipo 6 black for woman does it have any drug interaction?

Don't; Probably Bad: We don't know what lipo 6 black does really. Many interactions can occur with prescription meds and these kinds of proprietary blends. The company warns regarding antidepressants (underground.Nutrex.Com/products/lipo6-black.Asp). Moreover, the stimulants can undo the effects of citalopram and alprazolam. It can even even produce a serotonin syndrome (ss) in combination (people have died with ss). ...Read more

Need some docs opinions- which birth control type do you think is best in terms of drug interactions w/prilosec, xanax, (alprazolam) & zoloft? Can i even use it?

Am unaware of issues: With any form of oral contraception and the medications listed. The decision should be based on your lifestyle issues, preferences, potential side effects and cost. Your family physician or an ob/gyn (or np/pa-c, as the case may be) can better advise you. It is probably going to be more of an issue in terms of other habits, particularly smoking. If you smoke cigarettes, ocps are more risky. ...Read more

Could drug interactions with my meds being prescribed be really messing me up clonadine, atenelol,amlodopine,xanex,suboxone,omerperazole.. Help me pls?

Yes, indeed!: Did one physician prescribe all of these? If so - you need to consider another provider. If not, you need always to inform any one of them about other drugs you take. All have some risk with just about all of the others, but the worst is between Xanax (alprazolam) and Suboxone. Respiratory distress is possible even coma or death - so call your doctor(s) ASAP or go to ER or a good pharmacist w/ the bottles. ...Read more

I know ativan and Xanax (alprazolam) are in the same drug class but what are some of the differences between the 2 drugs?

Ativan vs Xanax (alprazolam): Both Ativan (lorazepam) and xanax (alprazolam) are benzodiazepine tranquilizers. The main differences clinically are that Ativan is longer-acting and slightly more sedating than xanax. Most agree that xanax is more potent than Ativan on a milligram-for-milligram basis, and probably more addictive. However, both are considered high-potency benzodiazepines and both can lead to drug dependence. ...Read more

If i took 1 mg Xanax (alprazolam) on thues at 3am and never have taken one before will i pass a drug test on friday at 3pm?

Depends...: Depends on how long the xanax (alprazolam) stays in your system, which can vary from person to person. The half-life 6.3 to 26.9 hours. It can take 5.5 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from your system entirely, so that means that xanax (alprazolam) might be detectable as long as 147.95 hours which translates to 6 days. So if Thues = Tuesday and your test is on that Friday it "could" still be detected. ...Read more
