      I wouldn't put my money on that one,they make mistakes too.I trust pharmacists to know more about medication interactions.A person can always call a pharmacy and ask them also.

    Ive never heard of Mirap,is that an antidepresant? Google multi drug interaction checker there are at least 4 sites,you type in each med and it will tell you any interactions.

      Sort of, it's more for anxiety.. my anxiety is starting to affect me in work so I asked her for something to help the nerves and she said these would help me sleep as well so only to take them at night... And the xanax for during the day when the mirap wears off (only on 7mg too) .. this is day one on mirap and I'm too tired to be anxious... It's great so far.. wondering should I just leave the xanax in the pack and only take as needed??

      Dont know,do you take xanax usually or are you just starting.If its as needed and you dont feel anxious,then guess you dont need it.Did you do the drug interaction checker?Xanex can also make you tired.
