I'd like to find out if omeprazole (a stomach proton-pump inhibitor drug; as it is metabolised by the cytochrome P450 enzymes) influences on the alprazolam (aka Xanax) half-time and its effect. I have tried 20 mg of omeprazol and 0,5 mg of alprazolam, but I wonder if possible (not so marked) increase of the effect was only an autosuggestion, or real impact.
I ask because if it's so, then I could take less tablets of this cure to get desired effect; I would like to save the tablets as it is not very easy to get this cure - doctors but prescribe such ones so unwillingly, although I personally have the social anxiety problems.
The most interesting doses for me are 0,5 or 0,75 mg of alprazolam and 20 mg of omeprazole.
Has anyone here tried it?
Or, if it doesn't work, maybe there are some other natural, and safe of course, ways to prolong the alprazolam half-time and concentration in the blood, and maybe you know about some of them? (Maybe the casual carton grapefruit juice, but it's told somewhere it's no impact...
Cheers to you!
I have nothing to add.
