Hi, you are speaking with Dr Jonathan.

Ask Your Own Pharmacy Question

The combination would be safe. However, the flexeril and norco will make you pretty drowsy and even dizzy. So don't plan on driving after taking them. Xanax will add to that effect. So what you can do is space some of them out by 4-6 hours.

Thank you. So it will be safe for me to take my verapamil tonight also

Yes there's no concern with the Verapamil at all.

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!!
