Default Xanax and Sleeping Pills

I have to take Xanax for my anxiety but I also have to take over the counter sleeping pills to sleep at all. Does anyone know if I should be taking both?

One pdoc gave me Xanax to use as sleeping pills, bc I also have anxiety issues somewhat... now it didn't work great for me, bc I had other issues that caused the sleep thing, but... you need to be careful bc the Xanax can affect your conciousness... rather it makes me rather spacey, and I definately wouldn't want to combine it with a sleeping pill, or I would be out cold for quite a while and would wake up feeling very tired...
*I* couldn't do it... Idk about you.
What kind of OTC sleeping pills do you take?
I used to take melatonin - which is not a drug, but is a hormone produced by your body as the sun goes down - it takes 30 - 90 minutes to work (usually about 45-60 for me) but they seemed to work pretty well on those nights when things would help me sleep at all...
I also saw no side effects taking that, also..
Just a thought.. don't know if you ever tried it...
Average doses run between 3-7mg I think...
Otherwise, yes, ask a charmacist/chemist...
Good luck.

It's okay to take both. I've taken xanax for anxiety and sonata to sleep. it's fine as long as it's prescribed by your doctor! don't worry!
