Customer Question

How long should I wait to take Xanax after taking a fioricet? I took the fioricet for migraine at 7 am and normally take a Xanax beforehand re bed at 10 pm

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I only take fioricet 1 or 2 x a month at most for tension migraines. I have been prescribed Xanax for anxiety and I only take .25 at night before bed.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You can take xanax 4 hours after taking fioricet.

Hence that should not be a problem for a dose at 10 pm.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
