Can I take a 2mg klonopin with a. 05 Xanax (alprazolam) just for one night of sleep due to anexity?

Only if it has. Been prescribed. If you are not used to taking two mg, i usually would tell my patients to take 1mg. If it is someone else's, do not take it at all. If you were my patient i would have you take an extra0.5 mg of xanax (alprazolam) instead. You should really call your psychiatrist who i would hope is on call for you or has someone covering for directions. Also, discuss with him or her in advance what you shoulddo should the situation arise again. I like to have my patients have a contingency plan in advance. Also remember to practice good sleep hygiene. Best wishes. Read more...
Addiction. Having two different benzodiazepine medications, and thinking more doses will bring you sleep us evidence of a very big problem. Honestly you do not have to live like this. It is not healthy. It is not going to end well if this continues. Please consider asking for help to find another way to live. Read more...

New pdoc Rx’d Xanax (alprazolam) ER 1mg every 6hr as needed. Took @ 1pm. OK to take 1mg Klonopin (older RX) @ 9pm, or bad mix? (Can't sleep full night w/ Xanax (alprazolam) ER)

Mixing is bad. Your physician prescribed those medications with the intention of you taking only those medications. Both Xanax (alprazolam) and klonopin are in the same class of medications and could cause an overdose. Absolutely do not take those medications at the same time without your doctor knowing. This could result in death from respiratory depression secondary to benzodiazepine overdose. Read more...

I took. 5 mg of Xanax at 11:30pm and but still feel some anxiety can I take. 5 mg of clonazepam to get some sleep I was just diganosed with panic and anxiety about two days ago and still feel the anxiety kicking in and I am not able to get some sleep is I

No, . No, i would not recommend that. Medications such as benzodiazepines can decrease your respiratory rate so that you don't breathe as well. Taking two different ones together, or even taking more than prescribed, could cause serious or even fatal consequences. I do want you to know that both of these medications are highly addictive. There are non-addictive alternatives for panic and anxiety that will not affect your respiratory drive. Please consider asking your physician about these alternatives. Read more...
I wouldn't. Using 2 different versions of the same kind of medicine (alprazalam and clonazepam) doesn't really make any sense, and Klonopin takes almost 2 hours to have its full effect. Xanax (alprazolam) is very short-acting and isn't the best sleep aide in the world. There are also non-drug methods of dealing with anxiety. Talk to your doctor about a better sleep medication, if 0.5 doesn't work, using 1 mg would be next. Read more...
