Thanks for the query

“Restyl” is a mild sedative and is the most common sedative used by physicians’ world over. It contains a drug called “alprazolam”.

The long term side effects are dependency on the drug. Stopping the drug can cause you to have sleeplessness and can cause irritability.
People coming to physicians with this dependency problem are advices to slowly shift to clonazepam which is better than alprazolam in terms of dependency and quality of sleep. You can talk to your prescribing doctor and under their able guidance shift to clonazepam.

There are no proven side effects or issues due to amichlor and restyl interaction. You may use them both.

Hope I have answered your query. If there is anything else I could help you with let me know, I'll be happy to help.
