Hello and welcome as a new member to Healing Well. I have read this post and also your other posts.
The 2 drugs you mention here, Xanax for anxiety and Prilosec for GERD or acid indigestion are prescribed for specific reasons and Prilosec is now easily available over the counter.
Do I think you should be trying to work out half lifes of drugs etc..........no. Everyone metabolizes drugs at different rates as well as some are metabolized through the liver and others excreted in urine.
I would not want any of our members to even consider the possibility of manipulating thier drug dosing in this manner.
This is my 2 cents worth

I would be asking a pharmacist to look this uo for you , try your usual one first
ironically grapefruit is said to alter xanax

I did not mean to sound so stern. I was concerned re your post that you might get into serious problems and perhaps exacerbate your condition by looking at half life of a combo of drugs.
I apologize if I misunderstood your post.
Please stay with us and keep posting. Your family now.
