Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

One tablet of panadol nite is safe to use.

Mysticdoc :

However, xanax and alcohol should not be combined.

Mysticdoc :

They can cause respiratory depression.

Mysticdoc :

Daily use of xanax can affect your memories in long term.

Mysticdoc :

Xanax also can cause physical dependence.

Mysticdoc :

However, 0.25 mg is a low dose and if you remain on this dose and use it occasionally.
