> I need help,I can,t get straight answers from the dr.,s,cause they may not know!First,let me explain,I see a Chronic Pain Dr. who has me on Methadone 20mgx4 and Dexedrine 10mgx2 a day.I see a Pshych who has me on Paxil 40mg a day and Xanax 0.5x3 a day.I suffer from painful back problems and ADHD(that explains the med regimen).I seem to awake 6-8 times a night,sleeping at the most,about 90 minutes at a time.I can hardly get up the next day,but always do,get myself together and go to work.I have a nice job but I seem to feel a lot of the time like I,m transparent or talking to folks from a different body,weird crap like that.I feel on the edge of a panic attack a lot of the times and I,ll pop a Xanax and try to hang on.Is my mind deteriorating?I,m 48 and I,ve taken these meds for a while,but I guess I just don,t know if it,s me or the meds or 1 or 2 of the meds or a combo,JEEZ-LOUIZZE!!!(anyone got any ideas?) Thanks for your time, Festus


Festus, the dexedrine likely is increasing the action of the methadone (which is why your pain doc probably prescribed it). Methadone has as CNS listed side effects-disorientation, visual disturbances, and insomnia/agitation. The Paxil can cause depersonalization and insomnia. Which med got added last-the Paxil and the Xanax? It could be the Paxil is interacting negatively with the dex/methadone combo. Does your pain doc know what your pdoc is prescribing you?
