Avatar f tn I was on xanax and went to the ER the other day for a bad panic attack and they switched me to Klonopin. I just started taking zoloft and have major anxiety from it. I don't feel like the klonopin is working and want to go back to the xanax which is what my DR prescribed. Do I have to wait any about of time before going back to the xanax from the klonopin? I took my last dose at 530 tonight. I just heard that klonopin stays in your system longer and don't want the two to interact.
Avatar f tn I went to a pain management clinic for over 15 years but I cannot find a new clinic that will accept me because I take Xanax AND I CANNOT COME OFF THEM I have tried several times. My psychiatrist has even written a letter to some clinics stating I cannot come off of the Xanax but they still refuse to take me and want to put me on Suboxone and I do not know what to do. I CANNOT TAKE THE PAIN ANYMORE.
Avatar f tn as Valium and does not make you feel as outof it. Xanax is the only thing I still take and that is very rarely. Ativan is also another choice, but I would not recommend it unless Xanax fails to do the trick - Ativan is very strong. Here is the way I did it with the xanax and it worked magic. My doctor prescribed me .5 mg Xanax. He told me to take one three times a day, but that soon did not do the trick. So I went back to him complaining of more anxiety.
Avatar f tn hi,My DR,switched me from ativan to xanax on this past Thurs,I feel kinda more depressed and nausted,He also gave me Effexor 75 mg to take i took it on Friday and i dont know if it was the mixture of meds but my blood pressure dropped as well as my heart rate dropped,usually when i was on ativan heart ratewas in 90s it is in the 60s now,Im so afraid i havent taking another effexor,,,,i take the xanax because my anxiety is bad but i feel so emotionless has anyone taking the combination and how di
Avatar f tn yes it could be from the xanax and it's not a good idea to take it much. Effexor can help with depression but also made me feel detached and impotenet so I no longer take it and take welbutrin instead. I'm not sure if it's helping but at least I won't have that problem.
Avatar n tn s safe to take Effexor and alprazolam, which is generic for Xanax, yes, you can take the two together. The Effexor should help with your anxiety though so you may want to talk to your Dr about stopping the Xanax. Depending on how you've been on it you may need to taper.

Avatar m tn panic attacks and heart palpitations for about a month after stopping. I would take Xanax .25mg-.5mg on and off to counteract the effects of panic attacks. Sometimes 3 days in a row, others once per week. I've been doing this for about 4 months. Now this month (almost 4 months later) I made an appointment for a hair transplant. At this point I havent taken xanax or any other drug for about 2 weeks prior.
Avatar n tn Hi, just wondering if anyone knows whether you can take lexapro and effexor TOGETHER, or if it will give you that seretonin syndrone thing???
Avatar f tn Mom ran out of her xanax but feels that she needs one. Can she take an effexor until we get the prescription refilled?
Avatar n tn The doctor has mentioned graves disease and some side effects to this is anxiety. I have been prescribed .75mg of Effexor xr and Xanax Xr .5. At first my systoms taking the Effexor Xr by itself was shaking, nerve pain like trembling, and insomnia. So he gave me xanax to counter out some of the side effects. Every anti depressant i have taken over the past couple of years i have the same symptoms. I feel real good just taking the low dose xanax xr.
Avatar m tn I take Celexa (citalopram) and I have taken Effexor XR in the past. The Effexor was best for my GAD, but I still needed Klonopin (.5 mg 2x a day) to keep the panick attacks away. BTW I quit the Effexor xr because I switched to insurance that only covers generics. I had no problem tapering off it unlike some horror stories I've heard from others. I now take the Celexa and klonopin and seem to be fine for now.
4776875 tn?1359048764 for some people its even the type of anti depressant and annixity medicane you take that can ether make it work or not work.. like for some people xanax and prozac can work against each other making annixity really bad but celexa and xanax work great together alot of times your have to try many different ones before you actually get the one that works for you. there is also valium, klonopin , effexor , lexapro , tranxene, diazepam..
Avatar f tn Thanks for the comment. I have been on been on it since June I started bc my panic was pretty bad and hit me all of a sudden, had test after test and could find nothing wrong with me. I think it has been making me feel better, I had to have it increased a couple of times. I have been prescribed xanax but I don't normally take it as I don't want to become addicted so I do t know when to take it.
Avatar f tn I have built up to taking 2mg of Klonopin 3 times daily over the past 10 years. In the last six months my doctor also prescribed Xanax at 2mg one a day prn. I was told that I shouldn't take them at the same time so on any given day I'll either take Klonopin or Xanax and sometimes will take two pills of the Xanax in one day. I am also taking effexor 300mg daily; risperidone 1mg daily; prazosin 5mg daily and lamictal 400mg daily for depression.
Avatar m tn and a ekg back in 07 showed sinus tachycardia with right atrial enlargement and high qrs voltage but i just found that part out by reading my records,My cardiolgists tells me my heart is not bad i shouldnt worry about it,but i do and my medical dr switched me from ativan to xanax on this past thursday and i am feeling nausated,but not as dizzy as on the ativan,i started effexor on friday and i dont know if it was a combo of the meds im on xanax going off ativan,risperdal, the effexor and on thur
Avatar n tn My Dr. is prescribing the Buspar, in addition to my Lexapro, and Xanax. Cause I told her I can't take the Xanax all day long cause it knocks me out, and right after I come off Xanax I go right back into a constant panic attack. We are going to try to give the Lexapro a little longer to build up (it's only been 15 days) and if it doesn't work or gets worse by next week, we're going to talk about weaning over to Effexor. I HATE ANXIETY!!!!! Anyone taking Buspar.
Avatar n tn Then I heard about Wellbutrin a few years ago and I wanted to try that and get off the effexor because i thought it was making me gain too much weight and I hear that the Wellbutrin could make you lose weight.
Avatar f tn If I take .25 klonopin 2x daily for maintenance of anxiety , can I take the occasional xanax for breakthrough panic attacks?
Avatar f tn I am really not a drinker. I take xanax 3 mgs. daily and ever since I have been back from vacation, I have had a feeling of slight depression. It has been almost six weeks and I still don't feel "normal". I am extremely agitated, nervous and out of sorts. I don't feel like myself. I have trouble making decisions and difficulty concentrating. Things seem surreal. I am beginning to feel like I am losing it. If anyone can provide any information I sure would appreciate it.
Avatar m tn Can you please tell me if you can take Nexium 40mg. and Zantac 75mg. together or on the same day. My GI doctor has me on Nexium 40mg. and my PCP wants me to take Zantac 75mg. at night before I go to bed. Is it safe, and can I take it with Xanax 1mg. I have GERDS and Barrett's Esophagus. And they both think it mjght be causing these little pinpoint pimples in my mouth, tongue, and throat.
647120 tn?1256601651 My doctor put me on Elavil (amitryptiline) and Cymbalta right away when the anxiety first started, and it was horrible for me. I was sleepless and hallucinating and withdrawn while feeling jittery inside. I dropped the Cymbalta right away and continued to have stimulant problems with the Elavil. I just got up and had my first of doses of 1 Ultram, 0.25 Xanax, and 1 Effexor and I can hardly type because of the nerves.
Avatar n tn If no MD answers you here, try the mental health forum. I wish you the best. I take 325 mg. of effexor daily and some xanax as needed. All for PTSD. My MD oroginally prescribed the effexor, but the psychiatrist doubled it and gave me more xanax.
Avatar f tn Also have tried Xanax it didn't work. The clonazepan isn't doing anything either....
