Ok, so I'll try this again. I have been prescribed both of these meds by my physician for their main intended purposes; Xanax for panic/stress attacks, and Ambien for insomnia. She told me specifically, and I quote "Do not take these two together as it is possible you may NOT wake back up." I've never been one to abuse my prescription medications, but found it odd she put this to me so bluntly. After doing some research on my own, I have found nothing that would lead me to believe that these medications could cause such a reactions as my recommended dosages are so low. Is there any truth to this statement? Thank you for any responses.

I see nothing that indicates it depresses respirations which is what she may have been thinking. Of course drinking with these 2 meds wouldn't be too good. If you have impaired breathing capacity it may effect you differently. Since she knows your history, I would ask her what she meant next time.
