  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • Do not take Actifed (pills) if you're under alprazolam treatment, especially if you're having a high dosis of the benzodiazepine (or if you're being treated for a long time). The psychiatric effects can be devastating and your anxiety disorder and/or depression can get much worse.
    Unentencionally (due to a very stressfull event) I increased my alprazolam intake and since I had a flue I also started the Actifed pills 3 times a day. After two weeks in a regular basis of 7,5 mg of alprazolam + 3 actifed pills a day I got a major breakdown with completly psychotic behaviour, a huge rage attack, agressivity towards loved ones and a completly "out of me" speech and actions. Also I had suicidal behaviour tendencies, which I didn't have for almost 10 years (since I have diagnosed depression)!
    After being assisted at the hospital the attending doctor recommended the immediate suspension of alprazolam intake to avoid further similar episodes.

    Please do be very carefull with drug interactions since they can change your life in a glimpse. Be safe & take care!
