Is it safe to take Xanax and Methadone?

No. Depending on the dosage, I wouldn’t advise it. Both will make you nod. You could burn your house down (or worse) if you aren’t careful. . . Any comments?

    I dont know what the other poster is talking about. Of course its safe to mix some drugs. Doctors do it all the time. Ambien and methadone should not be a problem. I took both together for almost two years (130mg methadone and 10mg Ambien). There could technically be some risk since both drugs depress respiration but for a stable, tolerant methadone patient the risk would be slim. Ambien is actually quite commonly used by methadone patients. I would definitely make sure that you dont take the two drugs too close together though. Take your methadone early in the morning if youre going to take Ambien at night. FYI, if you ever have any questions about drug interactions and cant wait to ask a doctor you can always call any 24 hour pharmacy and ask to speak to the pharmacist.
