I took a Xanax .25mg and a Lexapro 10 mg at the same time. What are the effects?

There are no direct drug interactions between Xanax (alprazolam) and Lexapro (escitalopram). Both of these medications have fairly extensive lists of side effects, and some are duplicates. These can include: blurred vision, confusion, drowsiness, headaches, changes in libido, rash, tinnitus, changes in weight and dry mouth.

Be careful if you must be alert while taking these medications. If you notice any unusual side effects, please contact your physician.
