Once again I am very sorry to hear you have been having several anxiety attacks today and you are wondering whether it is okay to take both Metoprolol and Xanax to control these attacks.

The answer to your question is Yes, Metoprolol & Xanax can be taken together safely and these two drugs are not expected to produce any serious or major drug interactions. There are no known contraindications to use these 2 drugs together. There are patients who have taken these two medications together and our clinical experience shows there are no major or serious drug interactions or adverse reactions that are known to occur when these 2 drugs are used together.

Once again I reassure you Metoprolol & Xanax can certainly be used together safely, so please not to be scared.

Wishing you the best health!

All the very best!
