i am currently on 1 mg of xanax a day and 40 mg of proplanolol, for anxiety. Now my Doctor wants to add 20 mg of paxil as well. Isn't this alot of meds for anxiety all at once? Not sure I want to take the paxil. Any thoughts?
Is it safe to take xanax, proplanolol, and paxil together? wont I be doped up?

I understand you completely about taking medications , I take 5 different ones. I take them all together and I still wake up very drowsy, I suffer from insomnia, and up until now I can´t find the right combo!
I'm on all 3 except add klonopin instead of xanax... oh and an antipsychotic (for anxiety) :D. You might feel doped up because of the xanax (not sure why xanax, ask about a long term benzo if you're gonna be on it a while). This will go away after the first few times using it though and the paxil will make you feel better over time! It's a great cmbo sounds like you got a good doc!
On the same combo except Prozac instead of Paxil and 80mg of propranolol. God I just love the bitter taste of Xanax and propranolol (note sarcasm). Ironically, the propranolol helps with some of the side effects of the Prozac (rise of blood pressure), so it is a great combination. That and you shouldn't feel too drugged up unless your dose of Xanax is too high.
