I read somewhere online that zantac and other acid reducers reduce the absorption of xanex. I take .25 at night for anxiety and sleep. I am weaning down after 6 months of panic attacks. Do you know anything about weaning off of xanex? I take .125 in the day, a very small amount, and .25 at night.
In the medical literature I do not see that given as a concern. You really should be OK taking them together. In clinical practice Zantac and Xanax are frequently prescribed together without difficulty.
As to your new question, I'm sorry but I do not have a lot of experience in weaning people who suffer from panic attacks off of xanax.
I'm sure, however, that there are experts here who can help you with that question if you wouldn't mind positing it.
I wish you the best of luck on weaning off of the xanax.
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
Have a good evening.
