Xanax meth and beta blockers

I know a person who would do meth recreationally maybe every other weekend. In september this person smoked a bad batch which must have been contaminated with something because this person became very anxious and had many panic attacks and his heart would palpitate very hard and race very fast. The doctor prescribed this person Xanax to keep him calm and a beta blocker metaprolol to keep his heart rate slow. This person now feels very much better and he has reduced his amount of xanax from 3mg a day to 2mg a day and is continuing to taper off of it. the beta blocker is 25mg of metaprolol ER once a day. If this person was to take meth again while on these 2 drugs is there any dangerous combination between them?

Re: Xanax meth and beta blockers

Meth makes anxiety and panic attacks much worse in long term, it doesnt had to be contaminated. I advise not to use meth if you have to take 3mg of xanax to calm your anxiety down. If you must use meth, there shouldnt be big problem with xanax but rather skip beta blockers which can mess with blood pressure. Use smaller amounts of meth because xanax can mask some of its effects, and you could possibly OD. Be safe.

Re: Xanax meth and beta blockers

I switched from xanax to klonopin. i take .5mg of klonopin 3 times a day (1.5mg total) i also take metaprolol beta blocker for fast heart rate. just trying to find out if a person takes these with small amount of meth if its safe.
i cannot skip my beta blockers and have to take them every morning because my heart rate is too fast without them.

Re: Xanax meth and beta blockers

Meth causes increased heart rate and panic attacks, there is no reason to think your meth was "bad" or "contaminated". It would probably be a bad idea to do meth again if the last time it messed you up so bad you needed two prescriptions to recover from it.

Re: Xanax meth and beta blockers

this person consumed meth for 2 years and never had a problem thats the reason he thinks that it was the batch that was contaminated because it never messed him up like this before. the main thing i am asking is if its safe with a beta blocker.

Re: Xanax meth and beta blockers

Clonazepam 0.5mg TID is still a decent dose for someone without/small benzo tolerance. As mentioned before meth itself is able to increase anxiety, paranoia as well as trigger full blow panic attack. 1.5mg of clonazepam in equal to 30mg of diazepam.

Mates cat was a regular meth user for 3 months prior to his first panic attack. He would go though 1g in 2 days or so and usually smoke weed on top of that. One day he was walking home, smoked a cone and he was sure he was having a heart attack. Random lady on the street called an ambulance as she the cat was sitting on bus stop bench, shaking, crying and wasn't really communicative. When the ambulance came his ECG came back normal with increased heart rate. By the time paramedics sorted cat out, the attack began to settle down and it was classified as a panic attack. When paramedics finished with the cat they said cat can go home as his probably fine, however, visiting a hospital to have a heart trace and blood work done as well as be seen by a doctor, would be in his best interest just in case. On advise of paramedics cat when to get checked out. Cat also had diazepam (10mgs) in his bloodstreem at the time of the event, however, cats benzo tolerance is quite high.

This was the worst experience in cats life. Feeling of impending doom he couldn't shake off, being sure his about to have a heart attack and a trip to hospital was enough to take the cat off meth for next 4 months. Since the event cat used meth twice without any side effects. As cat doesn't like stimulants much (with exception of molly) he doesn't miss meth at all.

Also cat always though it is inadvisable to use strong stimulants while on beta blockers due to unopposed α-adrenergic receptors. The blockade of only beta receptors would further increase hypertension, reduces coronary blood flow, ventricular function and cardiac output in general by leaving the alpha-adrenergic stimuli unopposed.

Also Beta blocker can produce increase in hypertension when discontinued without tampering the dosage down over a week or so.
