I suffer from anxiety but not so severe so didn't take medication. Just valerian for sleeping because insomnia has been a big problem. The last couple of days I'm trying to stop eating sugar so my anxiety increase and I took .25 Xanax for sleeping. Tonight I thought il be fine without the Xanax and took valerian but the anxiety is so bad that I can't fall asleep.
i AM SO SORRY you had to wait for a answer from anyone we have had some old site problems that are now doing much better..I ran your 2 drugs through our interaction checker from this site. You should really check with the doctor before you mix these it can make the side effect much worse with the xanax..HERE is the copy and paste for you to read.
nteractions between your selected drugs
Applies to: Xanax (alprazolam), Valerian Root (valerian)
Using ALPRAZolam together with valerian may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor. ME AGAIN..if you did not get a answer from anywhere you really should talk with your doctor. again I am so sore it took so long to get a answer.
