Yes, if the same Dr prescribed them both and instructed you to take both and you take as directed. From what I know though, you risk respiratory arrest in your sleep from mixing these. Hope this helps.

Absolutely, per Md recs. I also use Valium as a muscle relaxer. My pain doc says its the best there is and then I use Xanax for my anxiety. Sometimes paths may cross and I get sleepy. But, other than that, I've been on both for years. Hope that helps!!!

I take both and have back spasms. How are you directed to take yours for a muscle relaxant & anxiety? Daily doses & when to take. Thank you for your help

Hello mboemasta. Yes you can. The interactions will effect you though. Cognitive/CNS/Motor/ functions will be effected when taking both drugs. Regards pledge
