Thanks for your question.

You may safely take half tablet of Xanax.

It does not interact with Sudafed and would not cause any issues.

Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Do take a moment to honour my work and time by rating my answer hopefully 5 stars.

Thank you. Does sudafed cause this level of anxiety often? Should i stop taking it?
Health Professional: dochealey, Senior Consultant replied 3 months ago

It contains some stimulants which can increase anxiety.But different people have a different reaction and in very few would increased anxiety be noticeable.

If you have high levels of anxiety you may consider stopping it.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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!!
