I have been taking xanax/.50 2x day for 13 days for anxiety. I haven't taken a xanax in almost 48 hrs... took a 5mg for back pain oxycodone 14 hrs ago. I have severe anxiety right now..and would like to take a xanax... but am worried about interactions. Also about xanax withdrawl. Thanks so much.
How many hours in between do I need to safely take xanax and oxycodone?

While xanax and oxycodone can cause respiratory and heart rate depression, as long as you take only as prescribed you really should be fine. If you took the oxycodone 5 mgs 14 hours ago, you are definitely ok to take the xanax now.
As far as withdrawals, one mg a day of xanax for 13 days will not likely cause any problem other than rebound anxiety which is probably what you are experiencing.
