Is it safe to take a second Xanax tablet if the first one

Customer Question

Is it safe to take a second Xanax tablet if the first one has no effect at all. This primarily for sleep.

Hello

No, you should not take any more than is prescribed.

Xanax, also, is not a sleep med.

I suggest you talk with your doctor about this.

Also, you should have a sleep diagnosis, and if you have not, perhaps a sleep study.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

You can call your doctors answering service and see what they suggest.

We certainly can not tell you to take more xanax...we do not treat on the site.

If you simmer milk for 20 minutes this releases the tryptophan, which is a natural sleep aid.

1 cup is usually what is needed, or 2.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
