View Full Version : xanax after klonopin??? help!

Hi. I am HOPING someone here can help with this question.

I currently take paxil 40 mg and klonopin .5 mg every night.

I just lost my father 6 months ago and have been engaged in horrible family battles over his estate.

Months ago, I was terribly anxious about my dad's upcoming memorial service and the doctor gave me .25 pills of xanax as a stop gap to get me through it.

She told me NOT to take anymore than .25 at a time, since I"m already on .5 of klonopin and she said that benzo's don't mix.

LAST NIGHT we had a "family meeting." I was very nervous about it because i have a lot of rage. So I took 1 .25, then anotehr, then another, a total of .75 of xanax.

Today I am spacey and tired and lethargic. And i"m a little worried becuase I took 3x more than the doctor told me i could.

I don't realy want to tel my doctor yet that i did this. and i 'm wondering if anyone here knows about mixing benzo's like I just did.
thanks for any help.

hi Elena,

I'm not an expert but I don't think you should worry too much. If anything were to have happened as a consequence, I think it would have happened soon after taking them. I'm sure it's normal to feel lethargic and spaced out but I'd guess that the worse has passed..

No, you're ok but don't make a habit of it.

The spaced out and zombie effect is what its suppossed to do but not quite as much.


Your anxiety is the human representation of the pictures that you paint using your many vivid colours of revolving and reoccurring thoughts.

Hi Elena and welcome to the site.

I find that the folks here can give you a lot of comfort, and quite understand the difficult times you are going through.

Take Care,
