Brief Answer:
Xanax

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Do not consume Xanax and wine together as there is a possible drug interaction with wine, it will make you more drowsy.

I would recommend that you wait for 3 hours after consuming wine to take Xanax.

I hope I was of help

I currently take several medications for different health issues. Two of these are Lexapro and Wellbutrin. I was diagnosed with acute depression about 7 years ago and numerous medicines were tried individually. It was only when these two were prescribed in combination that the depression became noticeably less severe. However, after therapy for 5 years and a stay in a mental "hospital", I still do not have my life back. I was wondering if adding Celexa might be something I should discuss with my doctor? I used a Drug Interaction questionnaire which indicated there were no serious interactions with any of my medications, even if I included Celexa. Is Celexa actually an anti-depressant or is it similar to Abilify? Thank you! God Bless You and Your Family.

I have a bad cold with cough (for about a week now) and want to take coricidin II at night to get a good nights sleep. I checked for drug interactions as I am on meds for high blood pressure and 20 mg. of Prozac. There was a major caution due to possible serotonin syndrome - how great is the risk? I have been taking Prozac for more than 15 years and I titrate my dosage based on my mood over time. Right now I only need 20 mg. but in the winter it is usually 40 mg. Would taking Coricidin II at night for a couple of nights be too much of a risk? I believe it is called coricidin HBP in the US
