Customer Question
Can you take Xanax...

Can you take Xanax 0.25 while taking Warfarin 5mg?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, going to my family physician next week. Saw my cardiologist on Friday and Sent to the warfarin clinic friday, too.

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

Had a quadruple bypass in July and have anxiety from time to time

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Really since about a month after surgery and just try to deal with it, but getting worse. Can't say there's anything particular that brings it on. Just random.

Once again I reassure you, yes Xanax & Warfarin can certainly be used together safely, so please not to be scared of using these two meds together.

Wishing you the best health!

Hi Tony, as mentioned earlier too, Xanax can certainly be used when you are already on Warfarin, and this combination of medications is not contraindicated, and is considered safe to use.

Do you have any additional health questions? Do you want to discuss further the concerns you have mentioned above, or any other health related concerns?

Please let me know and I am available here.

Assuring you the best services!

Best Regards!

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.
