Alprazolam may increase the risk of serious or life-threatening breathing problems, sedation, or coma if used along with certain medications. Tell your doctor if you are taking or plan to take certain opiate medications for cough such as codeine (in Triacin-C, in Tuzistra XR) or hydrocodone (in Anexsia, in Norco, in Zyfrel) or for pain such as codeine (in Fiorinal), fentanyl (Actiq, Duragesic, Subsys, others), hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), meperidine (Demerol), methadone (Dolophine, Methadose), morphine (Astramorph, Duramorph PF, Kadian), oxycodone (in Oxycet, in Percocet, in Roxicet, others), and tramadol (Conzip, Ultram, in Ultracet). Your doctor may need to change the dosages of your medications and will monitor you carefully. If you take alprazolam with any of these medications and you develop any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical care immediately: unusual dizziness, lightheadedness, extreme sleepiness, slowed or difficult breathing, or unresponsiveness. Be sure that your caregiver or family members know which symptoms may be serious so they can call the doctor or emergency medical care if you are unable to seek treatment on your own. Drinking alcohol or using street drugs during your treatment with alprazolam also increases the risk that you will experience these serious, life-threatening side effects. Do not drink alcohol or use street drugs during your treatment. Just because a doctor prescribes a pill doesn’t mean that it’s safe for everyone. As the number of issued prescriptions rises, so do the rates of people misusing prescription drugs. In a survey conducted in 2015, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found that 18.9 million Americans aged 12 and older misused prescription drugs in the past year. About 1 percent of Americans aged 12 and older had a prescription drug use disorder. Drug addiction is a component of drug use disorder. It’s a disease that can affect your brain and behavior, making it difficult to control your use of drugs. Some people become addicted to illicit recreational drugs, such as cocaine or heroin.
So would xanax relive pain if it wasn't psychosomatic? Because the pain I have goes away when I take the xanax I'm prescribed for panic. So say if it was true pain and not just something my mind creates would it relieve it? However, that does not mean that the relief you find in it means that your pain is not as a result of your anxiety..instead something else, or something you need to worry about. It would be relieving to me to know that it wouldn't if it wasn't psychosomatic pain. Psychosomatic pain is real pain..is just as a result of a mental process, rather than that of a physical origin..that doesn't make any less felt!

My husband (C6/7) has been in pain since his accident.. I know that many of you are cursed with it as well, and I truly sympathize with each and every one of you. We have tried many things - from oxycodone to amytriptyline, baclofen, neurontin, and every non medicinal cure imaginable to no avail. My husband has always been prescribed a small amount of Xanax , which he has used once a night at bedtime to fall asleep. At some point we noticed that he is not in pain after he takes it .. and we now use it as the ONLY thing that controls his nerve pain. every time he takes it, a short time later, he says "I"M NOT IN PAIN ANYMORE". And it is such a blessing and a load from my shoulders every time i hear him say that.

My doctor gave me xanax for anxiety, my pain causes the anxiety and then I can't sleep. With the xanax I relax enough to fall to sleep. I don't take prozac I take effexor instead which works great forme.
