A few months ago I was prescribed .25 mg of xanax to take as needed. I haven't taken it in a loooooooong time and I'm scared to take it now. I don't really feel anxious but I noticed while laying in bed my heart rate has been in the 80s when my resting heart rate is in the 60s.
Is the xanax going to stop my heart or kill me somehow? I'm also on 50mg zoloft

Have you taken Xanax with Zoloft before??  I'd ask a pharmacist if you can take it, or your doctor.  THAT I wouldn't know about.

But if you could, Xanax is great!  I use it as needed and have done so for years.  At one point I was taking .25 twice a day for 4 months (horrible worrying), then stopped for months and have taken it just as needed.  (maybe 3 days in a row at night, then not for a week, then another night, then not for 2 weeks, and so on)  But if you are only taking it because of a heart rate being in the 80's then that's not even necessary because resting heart rates between 60-100 are normal.

Zoloft and xanax are fine together.

However if you are not feeling anxious I would not take the xanax right now. Resting near rate can fluctuate by quite a bit and is be absolutely not worried by a resting pulse in the 80s
