Does anyone know if taking xanax and restoril together(not at the same time, like hours apart) is dangerous? I just got restoril and I am just nervous. I take my xanax during the day and I was going to just take the restoril at night? Any suggestions? I have a hard time falling asleep and I cant ever sleep past like 5 or 6 am... I always wake up, even if I take my xanax before bed. So, I guess I am just making sure the two are safe to take together. Thanks!
Hello ivy458. I usually don't answer questions that have previously been answered, but here I am. I'm no doctor but know these two drugs very well. The restoril is a benzodiazepine, just as is also the xanax. Both, although some people disagree in regards to the restoril being addictive, they feel its not. I agree only in as much as they might take longer to be dependant upon. Xanax, will help some people to sleep but its not usually precribed for that purpose. Its a fast acting drug that gives quick relief to ones anxiety levels. In the case of your taking them further apart, it really will do little for you not to become addicted. Restoril is prescribed usually for short term relief from not sleeping. Its done so just because of the addictive nature of the drug. The longer on either, the more difficult it will be to stop taking them. Is it safe? Yes, I suppose, not knowing the doses of either one. Best of wishes to you,pledge
