Brief Answer:
YOU ONLY TAKE ONE MEDICINE AT A TIME.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

As you have already taken 1/2 Xanax (Alprazolam) for sleeping and anti-anxiety, then you can't take above mentioned drugs which are mostly anti-depressants.

No different categorical anti-depressant drugs (like Trazodone or Lexapro) or sleeping pills can be combined with each other within 2 hrs of taking to avoid serious ill health effect. It is better to take single medicine at a time for better absorption and effective result.

Hope, it helps for you. Let me know, if you need any clarification.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Regards,
Dr Soumen
