Doctor insights on:
I had a MRI today and given 6 xanax (alprazolam) tablets and I am on a daily dose 75 MG of amatripalyn. Will I be ok?
Most likely: It's not entirely clear what you're asking. The MRI itself should be harmless. Taking Xanax (alprazolam) as prescribed, even with your amitriptyline, should be fine (and help you relax). It's not a good idea to take Xanax (alprazolam) in higher doses or more often than prescribed. Of course, I don't know why you had the MRI in the first place, so I hope you'll be ok from the original problem too. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is your ?: orally disintegrating tablets supposedly allow more rapid absorption of a number of drugs, including alprazolam, although the evidence that it works any faster than swallowing usual tablets is not strong. It is no different ultimately than the oral tablets. Your prescribing doctor and/or dispensing pharmacist are the people who can best answer your questions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I don't like this: I was not aware they started making these, but I can say I do not like the idea. Xanax (alprazolam) is already one of the most abuse prescription drugs because of how fast it starts to work. The ODT versions of things work even faster than their regular pill-form counterparts, which makes a xanax (alprazolam) ODT potentially very fast, very addictive and very dangerous. I would not recommend that. I'm sorry its gotten made ...Read more

My Xanax (alprazolam) bottle says to take 1 to 1 half a pill when needed. They are 0.25mg. Always taken 1/2. Would a whole one hurt me? I weigh 92 pounds. 5ft.
Ask Rx r.: Since the rx states you can take a whole pill, i suspect your rx dr. Is aware of your weight and general medical case in general, so taking 1 whole pill should be fine (as this is a low dose anyway). However, it is important for continuity of care to discuss your medication dosing with your rx'ing dr. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am currently on 1 mg Xanax twice a day. 3 months ago I was at 3 times a day.
This month I've been able to take only one pill most days. I am now uninsured and refills may not be available. I would like to just get off Xanax. What do I do?
Went from 2 mg a day of Xanax (alprazolam) to 1 mg in a little over a month. I find it easier to split the tablet in half. Take one half in the morning and one early evening. I want to continue tapering down. How can I taper more with a 1mg tablet?
Xanax (alprazolam) taper: EricF ~ this all hinges on how long you have been taking xanax (alprazolam) 2mg and why. If it has been a short period and for minor social anxiety, then you can taper very fast, if at all. So the 1mg can immed go to 0.5mg and then 5-7 days later stop. The longer you have been on it the more fastidious the taper. From what you say I think you can taper quickly, but always discuss with treating physician ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

I'm taking 1 mg. Xanax, (alprazolam) 3 times a day and Vicodin 2 tablets every 6 hrs. Will I be ok?
Depends: These are not drugs that it is good to take long term. You should not stop the xanax (alprazolam) abruptly as that can cause withdrawal symptoms. The problem with these medications is that they are addictive and the body gets used to them and then they do not work so well and you need more and more. Try to work with your doctor to find other treatments for your symptoms that are safer and healthier. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
