xanax and percocet

I take 2mg of xanax at night. I am in really bad pain and I have percocet from getting hurt last month. I just started taking the xanax. Can I take both together? I wasn't on xanax when I had the percocet. I am in really bad pain. My knees, arms and fingers hurt when I move.

I'd ask a pharamacist.  Or call your doctor.

You can, as long as the prescribing doctor is aware.

The Xanax can 'piggy back' the percocet causing a stronger effect. Definitely speak to your doctor.

DO NOT be asking that kind of stuff here.  Following the wrong advise could make you dead..........

Just ask Whitney Huston.  Oh wait, you can't.  She mixed drugs and boos and we all know how that turned out.

You can take them together, but I would break both in half bc the pain pill and the xanax will knock u for a loop, u can always take the other halves if u need them.

This is horrible advice. Most Xanax is time released. If you break the pill, the time release coating is void and you get the whole lot more in your system at once. You only break scored tabs that you know for a fact that you can cut.
