Customer Question
I recently misplaced my...

I recently misplaced my Clonazepam. I do have a prescription for Xanax, available at the pharmacy. I’m just wondering is it safe to take the Xanax for a few days, as a substitute.. Until I can see the Dr. on Monday. Will it have basically the same effect, and will I have withdrawals from the lack of Clonazepam I guess is my queation(s)

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take metoprolol 100 mg twice a day. Xanax oddly enough sometimes make me sneeze when I initially take it, which is odd.. My only allergy is penicillin.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not really.

Do you by chance know what dosage the xanax is?

1mg
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The Clonazepam is 1mg also
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

So that's an acceptable replacement.

You can take that in place of the clonazepam without any concern.

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!!
