Anyone know if you can take them both?
The dentist gave me Penicillin tablets to help control the infection in my wisdom tooth, but I'm also on Xanax for anxiety.

So, do you think its possible to take them both? I've tried looking it up but I keep getting 'buy xanax' drug sites and other sites which do not provide the information I need.

I see no reason why not. From my limited knowledge of the two, they wouldn't interfere with eachother so much so that it would render them useless. Nor do I think there would be any dangerous side effects from mixing them...best bet, ask a doctor. But personally, I'd say you'll be fine.

Did your dentist ask if you were taking any other meds? Doctors and dentists usually know about drug interactions and will ask you what you're taking so they know if it will interfere or not. If s/he didn't ask it probably means that you don't need to worry.

 From everything I know about those two drugs, they can be taken at the same time.

He didn't.
He asked me if I was allergic to Penicillin. I think its on my patient notes that I am on Xanax though.

There are no interactions between Xanax and penicillin.

I used this site http://www.drugs.com/drug_interactions.php

Then I don't think I would worry too much. If you are worried you could call your dentist or something and ask him.
