You can take Xanax and Restoril together, but watch for increased sedation or respiratory depression.

If you use Xanax 4mg a day, what is the best pain reflief med you can use without risking serious sedation or respiratory depression? Indeed, does that kind of med exist?

You are correct. There really isn't a pain medication that can be taken with Xanax without the increased risk of respiratory depression and sedation. Depending on the issue, an anti inflammatory medication may be an option.
