Can I take both clonopin and xanax (alprazolam)?

Why? I am not sure why you would need to take two different benzodiazapines at the same time. Both have potential to build tolerance. I would not prescribe both at the same time to a patient, however different providers select different options. Please discuss this fully with your prescribing provider. Take care. Read more...

How long will it take for me to feel the effects of clonazepam? 1hr? I know it's slower than Xanax (alprazolam)

Within an hour. Clonazepam is a longer acting drug than Xanax (alprazolam) and its' effects are less immediately evident. However, depending on your size, diet, metaboisim, etc. it usually takes less than an hour to begin working. The efffects will be more subtle, in that the purpose is to maintain balance over time rather than stopping a panic attack. Read more...

Was taking 1 mg clonazepam a day, have since tapered off. Take. 5 mg Xanax (alprazolam) as need now; notice when I haven't had it in 72 hrs I get spacy/shaky. Why?

Withdrawal symptoms include sleep disturbance, irritability, anxiety, tremor, sweating, difficult concentration, confusion, nausea, palpitations, headache, hallucinations, seizures, psychosis, and death.

I use Xanax (alprazolam) since 8 month ago now I am traveling and I lost my pills, so a friend have clonazepam can I take a pill just 1 day until I get my xanax (alprazolam)?

See below. The best solution is to review your medication use at a local urgent care, so you have a safe solution. This is especially true if you have been regularly taking xanax (alprazolam) and have other medications and illnesses. Although Clonazepam is in the same medication class as xanax (alprazolam), it lasts much longer and the doses are not equivalent. So it is not a good idea for you to swap between the two using guesswork. 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...
