Hi! I post on the crohns board but I just got an rx for .25 Xanax for some upcoming flights I have. I am a very fearful flyer and it always gets my crohns acting up and the doctor thinks this should help me be more comfortable. She told me to take 1 at first and if I still feel bad to take another. I have never taken an anxiety med before. She told me to try one at home sometime before my flights to make sure I don't have any adverse side effects to it. I thought that was a great idea. So, I looked at the side effects online and I noticed that it said to let your doctor know if you are on birth control. Well my doctor prescribed my ortho evra patch so I know she knows I'm on it. I was curious however, why it mentioned a conflict w/ birth control and xanax. Will my birth control still be effective. If anyone knows please let me know! Thanks!!!
