"Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Xanax (alprazolam), Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone)
Using narcotic pain or cough medications together with other medications that also cause central nervous system depression can lead to serious side effects including respiratory distress, coma, and even death. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring to safely use both medications. Do not drink alcohol or self-medicate with these medications without your doctor's approval, and do not exceed the doses or frequency and duration of use prescribed by your doctor. Also, because these medications may cause dizziness, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, and impairment in judgment, reaction speed and motor coordination, you should avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how they affect you."
I take Xanax 1mg 4 times a day and Norco 7.5/325mg 1 every 4-6 hours. I have no problems. ( Except Norcos no longer work for pain.)
. I’ve taken both for atleast 10 years. Everyone is different but I have no issues taking the 2 together.
I took 2 mg Xanax and 2 325/ 10mg norco and was so high i feel asleep with food on my lap,these seem to be a bad mix.slept for 12 hrs and was still groggy was kinda scary.Im gonna try again wish me luck
No it is not safe!!! You could shut down your heart or breathing!!!
I've taken this combination numerous times over the years, usually 3mg of xanax and a hydrocodone 10/325, it was a pretty strong feeling of being buzzed, had no idea it wasnt supposed to be combined until recently, I always enjoyed it but I dont take it anymore. I'd say its fine in low dosages, just dont take too much of either one.
It CAN be lethal to take Norco n Xanax together, Drs prescribe these medication sometime it's called POLYPHARMACY
As a family doctor I can assure you that if your Physician has prescribed narco and Xanax that it is very safe to take both of them. As long as you are taking the correct dosage. For instance, if you are taking 2 Xanax 0.5mg. and 1 narco 7.5 together, you are fine. Just always go by what your Doctor prescribed you. Brittany J. Russell M.D.
If you mix to much you will lose either your arm or your left toenail. Happened to me multiple times. Luckily the doctor was able to save my toenail. My arm wasn't so lucky. You might also go into a high state of hallucinations. I saw strawberries eating bananas. They are both in the berry family. So that's cannibalism. Crazy but lethal if you take two 2mg Xanax and half of a Tylenol.
not to safe... will get you really high... i use to mix 60mg of roxy iv and take 2mg of xanax and get blowed... you sould be safe dont over do it. if you have a low tolerance to opiates take a low amount try one pill and maby 1mg of xanax and see how you fell just dont go past 1mg of xanax and then you can take whats needed after about 40-50 mins just give it time to all kick in then take a nother narco if needed
Hydrocodone and xanax mixed together can be a lethal combination if you haven't taken them together before. If your doctor has prescribed you both of these meds then call the pharmacist were you got the prescriptions and ask the pharmacist. Opiates mixed with benzodiazapines are the leading cause of respiratory failure and death. So don't take them unless 1 doctor ordered you both... Be careful...
