They can’t prescribe Xanax but they have other anxiety medications that are able to be taken with your opioids that are just as good. You need to talk to whoever prescribed you Xanax and ask them about other Anxiety or Depression meds that can be taken with your opioids that are legal to take with them!
Hope this helps…
Yes. Xanax , in combination with opiates/opioids contributes to huge numbers resulting overdose deaths. Both types of medications can cause respiratory suppression, and using them both together compounds the effects.
Most PM doctors want any and all scheduled medications prescribed by one office, making it easier to track usage, fills, and compliance.
