I am on clonidine 0.1 mg 2 x day. Doctor also prescribed flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) for help during a panic attack as i don't want to take addictive meds. Okay to mix?

In brief: Panic attacks

With this combo, you could feel sedated or drowsy -- and Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) doesn't help much with panic attacks either. There are non-addictive medications that do help panic attacks, such as antidepressants which can act preventively.
Please consider a comprehensive evaluation with a psychiatrist, who will be well-versed in effective treatments for panic. Psychotherapy is important also!
