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... Dave

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

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.

You're an ass. You lost your arm multiple times? That's crazy... you must have several to spare. It's funny, but think about still... To whomever read that post, I really hope you know sarcasm when you see it.

It's true though, strawberries and bananas are both in the berry family. Snapple fact.

Just a half a norco and a half of xanex is all I want to take is that ok ? D

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.

You are a family doctor and just agreed to this. And in my state they are outlawing it. Saying it can NOT be prescribed together anymore.

Thank you Dr Russell, I'm taking half of a . .5 alprazolam with Hydrocodone 5.0 / Acetaminophen 325. My doctor prescribed both to me, but I always like to make sure I'm remembering him correctly. Thanks so much for your help. Teri

It CAN be lethal to take Norco n Xanax together, Drs prescribe these medication sometime it's called POLYPHARMACY

My Husband was prescribed both of these medications. He passed away from mixing them together. Until you come home on your lunch hour and find your husband not breathing as he is laying on the couch. And then finding out that is why he died. His Doctor said it was fine to take them together...

I did notice there is said to be a major interaction between both Norco and xanax not sure if I seen it on here or when I googled it, I may have noticed a slight bit of difficulty breathing but I always get nervous when taking a pill that I don't take often like norco, I only did for a broken hand and a broken knee and if I went to the E.R for my bad back and neck when I couldn't cope no more, But I would usually wait atleast an hour I'd never take them both together. Although IF you were prescribed them both try and take as low of a dose as possible. Even talk maybe with the doc. I have alot of trouble with my neck and back but I have severe anxiety and panic attacks so I may no longer even take them ever even hours apart. I will say that xanax has been VERY safe for me but again I don't abuse my medicine at all and see no reason in doing so. I do believe if there is a interaction between Norco and xanax it's due to TAKING TOO MUCH. Stay on the low doses. DO NOT ABUSE.
