What dose of xanax are you taking?
Do you ever drink alcohol?
what herbal products do you use?
You are correct to be cautious. I would be worried about the amount of xanax that you are taking with the doxepin as the risk of drowsiness is high.
You should certainly not mix any alcohol with this combination.
Can i ask why you have taken this amount of xanax? What did the doctor suggest?
I would certainly start the Zoloft, when used every day it works to reduce anxiety and panic attacks (as well as antidepressant for those people with depression). Once you are stable then you should find the panic attack frequency lessens. Xanax is only a short term solution because you will develop tolerance and find that to get the same effect, you end up having to take increased doses,.
In terms of taking the doxepin, you can take it if it is more than four or five hours since the last xanax, otherwise I would be concerned about the level of drowsiness. And tonight avoid the herbal products too.
the doxycycline and finasteride are fine.
technically the books do not mention an interaction with xanax and doxepin but they both cause drowsiness so it makes sense not to mix within a short period.
Yes, an overdose of xanax and doxepin is possible depending on quantity taken and the underlying health of the patient. However in a healthy adult, then it is possible to use xanax and doxepin at the same time depending on the dose used. The drowsiness cannot be quantified, so you should not drive or operate machinery when taking these combination.
Xanax and alcohol is certainly not a good combination, and xanax will cause addiction when taken regularly for a period of time. That is why, I suggest people use the smallest dose possible to relieve their symptoms and look for long term alternatives.
