... often a headache. Is it safe to take a xanax about an hour after I took 100mg of tramadol? I was going to try just a half of xanax. I'm 68 yrs old and weight is 160. I've been on these meds for over a year and never took them together before because I don't like taking them. I'm afraid of side affects with any pill. Any advice on taking together would be appreciated. Thank you
I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I’m not sure of your health history, but perhaps you could ask your doctor about a low dose beta blocker for your anxiety. Beta blockers affect blood pressure (which is why you should talk with your Dr. to see if this is an appropriate medication for you), but they are also prescribed for treating anxiety because they act in the part of the brain that creates anxiety and they are not habit forming the way benzodiazepines can be. Generally, depending on the beta blocker they have minimal side effects in low doses. I take clonidine to help manage my anxiety and Dr.’s will often prescribe them for individuals who have “performance anxiety” (like speaking in front of large groups).
Good luck and I hope this is helpful!
