Hello Pawpawtahan:

It's okay to take Xanax and either acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen together. However, you should avoid the "PM" version of those pain relievers which add diphenhydramine. Diphenhydramine is a common anti-histamine which produces drowsiness and in combination with Xanax the mix is potentially dangerous.

Take care for now and all the best.

I know how hard it is. Extremely. I go through it daily. I had to go to a Neurologist who prescribed me Topamax which helped. If needed I take Arthritis Tylenol which last longer in my opinion. I've taken ibuprofen and excedrin as well, they chewed up my stomach and gave me an ulcer. I was taking them so much because of pain. As long as you dont abuse it just like any medication, you should be fine. free discount card
