2 HOURS AGO I took 2 10.5 mg norco and 4 mg of xanax to be able to wind down and go to sleep. I have felt no change and am still wide awake. I do not take these meds every day as I only have my prescriptions for these refilled every 3 months or so. What gives with the lack of response from these meds together?
If you have been on them for a long time you probably have developed tolerance to them.
I also take a benzo (klonopin xanax does nothing for me) and I am completely tolerant to it as I also have become tolerant to seroquel (an antispychotic with hypnotic properties used for the treatment of insomnia).
From the following interaction, you, my friend should be sleeping by now.
Interactions between your selected drugs
alprazolam ↔ hydrocodone
Applies to: Xanax (alprazolam), Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone)
Using ALPRAZolam together with HYDROcodone may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
This combination will wire you, not put you to sleep.
If you were super wound up, it isn't going to knock you out. There are practices that are needed if you have sleeping problems regularly, but if this is an isolated incidence, then you should be ok.
