Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** am reading your question and will be back with you ASAP.

Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 7 months ago.


The ingredient that is causing the nervousness is phenylephrine HCl. It is a decongestant that is also contained in many cold preparations, and in Sudafed. It affects many people this way. It is fine to take your alprazolam to help with the feeling. I would suggest that you not take decongestants if you react this way to them.

Please reply if you have any additional questions or concerns about this.

Kind regards,

If you have no more questions about this, I would appreciate a rating (preferably a "5") since Just Answer only credits us with answering questions if we get a positive rating. This costs you nothing extra.
