Can you mix Xanax and Valium

Anxiety is not fun! I have been taking valium for years which has been helping. Usually I take it at bedtime. Now I find my anxiety has gotten worse and I have tried 2.5 mgs of Xanax at bedtime instead of the 5 mg valium. I think I sleep better. But, at about 5 PM when I start to get that anxious feeling, I take 1 mg of valium. A friend of mine told me this could be bad. Could it? (The 1 mg definitely took the edge off and allowed me to eat dinner without having that nervous feeling in my stomach.) Has anyone ever used both of these drugs - am I going to cause myself a problem? I do know I could take Xanax twice a day, but it tires me too much so therefore I figured the small piece of Valium would work well. And it did so far.

Re: Can you mix Xanax and Valium

I think the best thing to do would be to ask your doctor or pharmicist. They can give you the best advice.
