Question: I have been diagnosed with the flu. This is the end of day 1.
While my fever is only at 100 I suffer from high anxiety.
I have a prescription for alprazolam .5mg take when needed. I forgot to ask the doctor today if this would be ok if my anxiety got out of control.

Brief Answer:
You can use Tylenol and alprazolam together.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

If you experience anxiety symptoms you can take alprazolam safely. You can use Tylenol or acetaminophen for fever and flu symptoms and you can use them even if you take alprazolam. Alprazolam and Tylenol or acetaminophen do not interact together so you can use both of them safely.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
