Mixing fentanyl and xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Mixing fentanyl and xanax


Like Ryan said, you are already at the maximum recommended daily doses of both the Oxycodone and Xanax, and also like Ryan said, increasing them would not be the answer, as it would only delay the inevitable...which would be the tolerance issues. You definitely need to inquire about something long-term that would be effective in controlling your symptoms without the tolerance issues. There are pain meds that are more suitable for more of a "maintenence" purpose.
I just want to make sure there is no chance of any physical health problems when coming off fentanyl like the ER doc said, or was he just full of crap and thought I was drug seeking. 1 1/2 months before I went to him I was sent to the ER by my one of my Dr's when he found out I went w/o my patches for a few days(my blood pressure and pulse were up). A neurologist saw me and immediately diagnosed me as going through opioid withdrawal and wrote me new scripts, and told me to get in pain mgmt.
Down to 108 pounds and all the doctors could do was cut my morphine dose etc. After finding out how the fentanyl and all the drugs were affecting me, my pancreas reacted and my intestines were causing problems so I had to stop cold turkey. My point is that this is NO SUPPORT from the medical community about this and this is horrible!
Unfortunately I know all to well what being in your shoes feels like, my mom is an alcoholic (3-5bottles wine/day), along with that she has 25mcg fentanyl patches, xanax, restoril along with a host of various anti-depressant and bi-polar medication. Its really escalated to the point now that we as a family have to do something to save her life, but were just not sure exactly how to do it.
Hi Lynn, I've read your post's and have to say, that I too take xanax every night to sleep. The same Dr. who prescribes the percs and oxy's for me also gives me 1 or 10mg ( all i know is there blue and i think they're considered 10mg) anyway, i've been taking them for 5 years also. I have very very bad anxiety, my life was a mess a while ago. What am i saying I've made my life still a mess due to me taking this **** i'm taking!
i have been on opioids, stadol, oxy over 30 years - - then the 75mg fentanyl stopped working and i was labeled an addict. i have been off the patch since April and off Ritalin since June and xanax since may. my migraines have been at the worst and increase in frequency. no doctor has given me a plan or what i can try. I'm doing yoga, meditation, massage as alternatives....my quality of life is null and void. i need pain relief soon! any ideas?
For habitual long time addicts, you may require a longer dosage period. For Heroin and Methadone users 2 weeks or more. The Xanax and sleep aides can become addictive if abused. The best way to make sure you do not become addicted is to have your doctor only prescribe enough for 10 days. With no refills!! You know what they say, "if you don't got em', you can't take em'".
to notice any improvement from 150 mcg or Fentanyl withdrawal.About the sleep I tried mixing melotonin with sleep aids,Xanax and valerian root and still cant get more than 3 hrs and it has bee almost 8 wks. Sleep is so important to feel good again. My Dr. prescribed Trazodone and that doesnt work for me but many others found relief with it.It may work great for you and is non addicting Congrats. for getting clean and feeling better so quickly I am amazed.
Thanks WW ~ I take it all under doctors orders and do just like they say...my mixing drugs to get a buzz days are over. Thanks for your response. I appreciate it...

I am currently taking an antidepressant and Xanax when needed. I dont like the Xanax it makes me too sleepy and sometimes depressed. I am also doing meditation, acupuncture and massage. Bonnie keep me posted on how you are doing too. This is such a great site. If it was not for everyone on here I would feel so alone with this. No one in my family knows of my inner torment that I go through. One on hand the meds really do work.
So glad you are choosing to join us. This is the place to be if you want off Tramadol. Lots of love, information and empathy here!
You can do this tramadol warriors! You can beat this! You will do this!
I've run the gamut from enjoying years of sobriety to dealing pills, writing scripts, doc shopping and most of the other things people experience. Things got pretty dangerous when I started mixing Benadryl and the Norco to potentiate the effect of the drug alone. I don't know if my doc was trying to scare me, but he said this could've easily lead to my death. Seems that each time I've relapsed it gets more challenging when I want to quit.
I had also done a very wide variety of drugs aside from opiates by this time, including but not limited to weed, cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, GHB, LSD, ketamine, ecstasy, xanax, and many many more. Needless to say I was in pretty deep as far as drugs are concerned. In addition to my heroin addiction, I was also addicted to crack cocaine, and was mixing the two drugs for IV use (yes IV'ing not smoking crack) on a daily basis for about 1.5yrs.
- I have this 24 hours and the following day off of work and the house to myself. - I have roughly 8 mg of Lorazapam and 10mg of pure Xanax powder - I can get any/all OTC stuff this weekend before it starts. - I have a ride to the clinic so all I have to do is get in the car. Some ideas I have: - drinking alcohol.
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Welcome! So happy to see all of you, and welcome new friends. This is a good place to be if you want to get off Tramadol ... You can do it!
vics were my DOC. Also took xanax .25mg, -.5mg @bedtime for 1 yr.(usually .25mg) I was using on avg. 4-6 of the 7.5 day for 2+yrs. ( occas. did the yellow 10/325) I am still tapering. Wed. will be my last day. I am also a recovering alcoholic for 17 yrs. w/ no relapse (on alcohol), BUT I GUESS THIS IS A RELAPSE, HUH, ??? congratulations to all...it works if you work it!
Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form. Librium is also an excellent detox benzo, but comes in capsules, making it hard to taper the dose. Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). 3. L-Tyrosine (500 mg caps) from the health food store. 4.
YOu are still post op, and you may be having a compound of symptoms, which include the pills and the depression and rehab. for heart. Ask your doctor for small doses of xanax, if anything at all.
You will **** your brains out and get tremors and cravings and hope to die. My emotional energy was gone. I cried and was close to tears most of the time. Had no energy. Legs felt like lead. If you decide to quit get a medical detox or ask you doc for some clonopin to control some of the above symptoms. If not be ready for a week of pure hell. You won't be able to pull it off yourself without some support. AA sounds corny but find a group near you and go. Enough for now.
Do not confuse oxycodone with oxycontin, same narcotic but very different delivery method. Five milligram oxycodone are safe and effective and come in a small enough dose that you can take an effective dose without getting groggy. Both of the oxy drugs have no other component to foul the waters.
Also some OTC mixing will make your headache or RLS worse. Hot baths and fruit smoothies are a godsend. You will not want to eat - your sense of taste will be hightened and will bother you. But you need vitamin replenishment. When you are restless, get some excercise - trust me - at least it will pass the time. Do NOT go to work for 7 days if you can swing it. You are sick - so dont feel guilty or pressured - pressure will be unbearable and you may relapse.

I figured I would try xanax (doctor prescribed them to me for anxiety) to try and help with withdrawals. I get really tired but anxious at the same time. Although Xanax doesn't help with most of the symtoms, it does help with the anxiety and restless leg problem during the night. I do not have a problem taking Xanax but it is a very addictive drug so some might. Gradually, when the withdrawals go away, wing yourself off the Xanax. Start off by only taking one a day (.
Most of the regulars on this site know of my negative experience with Sub –as I have tried my best to share it, but I may have, in my zeal, discouraged some from even wanting to quit their DOC. That certainly was (and is) not my intention. Let me share that after 3 months of being totally clean, life has not been this good in a very long time. Sub is a tool that can be successfully used to stop Opiate addiction.
U have already had the worst of it and now, they will begin to taper off and get better and better. The irritability may last a little longer, but not much I imagine. Anyway, congrats. U took the meds like u should and didnt ever get into trouble w/ them. That says a lot to me. Anyway, that makes a difference during all of this, in my opinion. Stay positive and by the end of the weekend, I bet they are a memory, distand I hope. How is your pain now? Do u have another way to manage it?
