Interactions between your drugs
If you are currently taking alprazolam, it is important to inform your doctor before undergoing surgery that may require the use of vecuronium or similar medications. In some cases, alprazolam may alter the effects of vecuronium. Make sure to tell your doctor about all other medications you are taking, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop taking any medications without first consulting with your doctor.
Drug and Food Interactions
Grapefruit and grapefruit juice may interact with alprazolam and lead to potentially dangerous side effects. Discuss the use of grapefruit products with your doctor. Do not increase or decrease the amount of grapefruit products in your diet without first talking to your doctor. Additionally, do not drink alcohol while taking alprazolam as it can increase the effects of alcohol and make you feel more drowsy, dizzy, or tired. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
