Hello,
Welcome to justanswer.com and thank you for your question.
I am going to assist you with your question. First I need a little more information-

Have you taken only Xanax XR .5 mg twice of prescription dosage?
How long back you had taken second dosage?
Do you have any symptoms at this time?

Kind Regards,
Dr. Robert

No I took all meds a second time.
I took all meds when I woke up at 8am and took them all again at 9pm ish.
No symptoms yet.
Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 1 year ago.
Dear XXXXX, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.

Pristiq contains desvenlafaxine succinate and it can be tolerated from 50-400 mg/day, As you have taken dose of 100 twice a day, this can be tolerated in body. It would not cause such side effects.

Xanax xr can be easily tolerated up to 1 mg taken together. This would not cause side effects.

Hctz can be tolerated up to 100 mg,
Toprol xl can be tolerated up to 400 mg in a day.

As such you can watch, blood pressure levels.
Most likely you would not get any serious symptoms. Such dosage can be tolerated by out body.

You should not take any more dosage tomorrow.
There is no need to rush to ER now.
As such there is no need to take any more medications, and just keep an eye on your blood pressure levels.

Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

One more thing. My pulse is raised. It is 90bpm steady. Is this expected?
Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 1 year ago.
Jeff, The normal pulse for healthy person ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute.
Your pulse rate might have raised due to anxiety or fear for getting serious side effects.
But as such, you would be ok and healthy.
Slight fluctuation with blood pressure levels can occur.

Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
