Answer . Ativan (lorazepam) is an anti-anxiety medication. Hydrocodone is a narcotic analgesic (pain-reliever) and an anti-tussive (cough suppressant). Both medications are controlled substances and can only be obtained via a physician's prescription.. One could take both medications at once in …a small quantity without encountering any major side-effects except perhaps sedation. (MORE)
I personally have a Large Herniated Disc and several other problems with my back and was at one time prescribed Hydrocodone/APAP and Tramadol. Hydrocodone is a pain reliever that is the generic brand of Vicodin and Tramadol the generic brand of Ultram that is used to treat moderate and severe pain a…nd treats neuropathic pain. I mixed the two only after contacting my local 24 hour pharmacy, and they assured me it was safe, but that the mixture of the 2 medications will cause extreme drowsiness. The combination worked pretty well for me. But as always, talk to your doctor(s) and pharmacist prior to taking anything. No, do not mix the two, Tramadol will react to the Flexeril. See your Doctor. ________________________________________ Yes you can mix. My doctor just gave me those 2 drugs for my tailbone pain. EXACTLY 10mg of Flexeril and 50mg of the Tramadol. I also take Welbutrin so that is safe as well to mix. If it was not safe I doubt she would give it to me. the pain clinic I go to is very conservative with drugs. They give drugs only if you are on some program that uses mind over matter as well. They never give drugs alone AND not for a prolonged period. But as with anything make sure your doc knows about every med you are taking. Flexeril and Tramadol are sometimes combined for moderate for sever back pain. There is an interaction that increases the effect. The combination also has a high risk of seizure and should be monitored carefully. It's worked fine with me. Do not take it with a MAO inhibitor or if you have heart problems. Tramadol and Flexeril are addictive and should only be used for 2-3 weeks. I've been using for 6 months with no issues. (MORE)
Probably not a good idea as most medications that contain hydrocodone already have acetaminophen in them (Vicodin, Lortab, etc.)... taking too much acetaminophen is very bad for your liver.
side effects generaly entail trouble sleeping consentrating you get realy itchy and sometimes get irritable but what ever you do dont take it with liquor....bad bad reactions. vomiting in enevetable that is the minor of the bad reactions heart attack low blood pressure to the point of passing out...…...thats about it.

no, do not take them together, different people react differently to pain killers, alternate them to see which is better for you. combined they have too much Tylenol and could cause liver damage
You can but be careful, oxy is a more potent pain killer then hydro, this converts to to oxy = Percoset. hydro = vicodin. You can take these together, a lot of doctors will prescribe them together for very bad pain but unless prescribed by your doctor I wouldn't suggest it. Doctors will usually pres…cribe oxy-cotton (a time released oxy codone) with hydro for "break thru" pain, but like i said this is presribed by a doctor, do not take matters into your own hands, this is how people OD.

Combining Xanax with Hydrocodone can increase side effects such asdrowsiness, trouble concentrating, and dizziness as well as causeimpairment in judgment.
They both commonly cause dry mouth and sedation and rarely cause blurred vision, urinary retention and constipation. If you take them both these side effects are more likely.
Yes, the pain medication, hydrocodone, and antibiotic, amoxicillin, can safely be taken together. Although, you may want to take them with food if you experience stomach upset (nausea).
Yes, you can. Ibuprofen and Hydrocodone work in different ways. When Hydrocodone is prescribed it is commonly prescribed in combination with acetaminophen (Tylenol), but sometimes prescribed with ibuprofen (Vicoprofen). Hydrocodone is an opioid narcotic that works by blocking opioid pain receptors. …Ibuprofen is not a narcotic and works differently to block pain. Many healthcare providers including myself will tell patients to start off by taking ibuprofen (400 mg). If the pain still persists after 30 minutes or so take the hydrocodone. There is no adverse effects and no reason to worry about taking the medicines together as long as you take them in the recommended/prescribed dosages. (MORE)
Combining celexa and trazadone can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred …vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms while taking the medications. In addition, you may have an increased risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm that may be serious. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. You should seek immediate medical attention if you develop sudden dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, shortness of breath, or fast or pounding heartbeats while taking the medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor. Like this piece says an I cant stress enough TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR!!! (MORE)
Trazodone is an antidepressant with many possible side effects. Minor ones include weight gain, weight loss, dry mouth, blurred vision, red eyes, and tinnitus. More severe side effects include chest pain, dizziness, uncontrollable shaking, and fainting.
Yes you can, both are narcotic so you want to be careful of howmuch you put into your system. The most danger, other than overdoseof the narcotic is, you really need to monitor the amount ofaceteminophen (Tylenol) you injest. You will notice that a pill,such as percocete often has 5 mg of narcotic a…nd 500 mgs ofaceteminophen. Of course that amount varries from pill to pill(brand to brand), or (script to script). Just be careful Tylenolcan pickle your liver....Esp if you drink alcohol However, there is NO advantage of mixing 2 narcotic drugs. Youshould take only one and take higher dose if you want a better paincontrol (this adjustment must be done with your doctor). (MORE)
Hi' I have two herniated discs L5-S1 and I'm in considerable pain when on my feet' walking and working etc. I have been given Dihydrocodeine 30mg four times daily' this really helps with the pain, but I would like to know if it is possible to take Amitriptyline 10mg with this to help releive the imf…lamation of the muscle around the discs ? (MORE)
Depends on your tolerance but I snort 3 (15mg each) oxycodone pills and wait a hour then take 2 (50mg each) trazodones. I sleep extremely well with the two mixed but as I said before it depends on your tolerance and dosage.
Yes you can take morphene and hydrocodone. I have been taking 30mg of morphene sul er twice a day, along with hydrocodone 10mg 325mg of acetominophen up to 4 times a day as needed. Keep in mind I have bult up a tollerance for opiates. but the short awnser is yes doctors can prescribe you both medica…tions at the same time.. mike, (MORE)
Taken together, there might be additional central nervous system and respiratory system depression, which could be bad. I personally think that the combination is quite enjoyable (it's prescribed by my doctor). They seem to achieve a kind of synergy, with the hydrocodone being potentiated (working b…etter), and the lunesta effects being transformed subtly into the feeling of a rather large dose or valium. (MORE)
Yes, both drugs could be taken together. However , both drugsare opiates and act the same way in the body. All you'll get ismore side effects without a huge amelioration in your pain control. Talk to your physician about augmenting your dosage for only1 agent and switching to another if you need m…ore effect or if youhad accumulated too much metabolites. (MORE)
Yes, both drugs can be taken together, there is no specific interaction between those 2 drugs. You might experiment more dizziness and gastrointestinal disturbing in taking both drugs.. but that's okay.
Yes - there are no significant contra-indications for taking the two together. If unsure, check with your pharmacist.
Answer:. Yes of course these two medicines can beused together, in fact, this is a good combination for people withmoderate to severe pain especially if the pain is muscle or jointtype pain. Nabumetone is a NSAID which reduces swelling andhydrocodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic used to alleviatepa…in.. (MORE)
It depends on many factors, like your body and the amount of both of those drugs that you took, how much you've taken it before, etc. This is what most druggies refer to as a "Speedball", which is when you take an upper "stimulant" and a downer "depressant" at the same time. Most people like it b…ecause of the double euphoric effects, but at the same time it is really dangerous to your central nervous system in large doses, and if you don't know what you're doing. Because I'm assuming you're aren't prescribed both of those drugs, it seems like an odd mix. And if you are, I highly advise to kick one of them, but I couldn't tell you which one, because honestly they both suck to get addicted to and you build a dependance quickly and easily. Anyways, the effects could be respiratory failure, because while your heart is trying to beat faster it is at the same time trying to slow down, which it ultimately could just stop. This is if you take them at extreme dosages but in any case you should talk to a doctor, given that you are not taking these illegally. (MORE)
I take hydrocondone at or near the max dose daily (fortunately med mj has reduced that demand by at least 30% within last eight months) and, as an Army medic, somewhere along the way I picked up MRSA. There are three antibiotics that are still modestly to moderately effective, one of which is from t…he "-cillin" group. Have taken them simultaneously with no problems. Never be afraid to simply ask your doc - they should be more than willing to discuss potential contraindications or side effects ... or, you need a new doctor! (MORE)
These have been prescribed together; Wellbutrin for depression, or ADHD, or smoking cessation, and hydrocodone for pain. However, this combination needs to be carefully monitored by the prescribing physician, especially if the intended effects are to occur. Dose titration is usually required for Wel…lbutrin, as different doses will affect individuals in different ways. (MORE)
\nwell, you can, but seeing how adderall is a stimulant and trazadone is a sleeping pill, they wouldn't work if you took them at the same time. And why would you want to? But you can take adderall, and then once your sick of being awake FOREVER you can take trazadone to sleep. I would recommend ceas…ing any adderall about 5 hours before you plan on going to sleep, and then take the traz about 30 minutes before you go to bed. (MORE)
Yes you can. Hydrocodone increases the effectiveness of gabapentin but will also decrease the effectiveness of the hydrocodone..... you will still get relief from the Hydrocodone just not add much as if you took it by itself. But I do repeat it will increase the effectiveness of the gabapentin. Hope… this helps. I know this from experience (MORE)
Yes you cn take xanax with trazadone' I have taken it together for about a year. My Dr. prescribes it to me, and I havent had any problems, just take what the prescription says because if you don't then you can actually wig out, and its not a good thing.... you can black out and then you remember no…ting. (MORE)
You need to ask a doctor about this. hydrocodone is a very hard pain killer to your system. Sometimes just calling a doctor over the phone will answer this question. My husband takes hydrocodone and it is very powerful, so be careful what you take with this medication. This is an awful, uninform…ed answer. (MORE)
No it is not safe to take to sedating medications together. Overdosing on sedating drugs can cause confusion, agitation, and trouble breathing. You might even pass out. Valium is habit forming, so it's dangerous to take extra or take other drugs with it. I urge you to find a good therapist and lear…n healthy ways to cope with your anxiety and stress. Therapy is the only way to CURE anxiety, and that way you can get rid of the tranquilizers and get back to living! (MORE)
There are no contraindications between the medications. But before you add or remove a medication/supplement/vitamin from your diet, consult your doctor or pharmacist. There may be a reaction between other medications you are taking.
There are no drug interactions between these two drugs. However, keep in mind that both drugs are harsh to your stomach. Have a good meal before you take the steroid. If you have heartburn or upset stomach with these, you can take something like Zantac to reduce the stomach acid.
That would not be the ideal, but potentially safe, combination unless you are very familiar with both drugs. Reason being because one of the chemical in the dual-action pill fiorcet is a barbituate. Too much of both together could cause depressed breathing, etc. Best is to to take try taking low dos…ages of both (if you are familiar with them) and see how you feel. (MORE)
Yes, hydrocodone and Augmentin can be taken together in most cases.However, always speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you havequestions about the medicines you take.
No drug to drug interactions have been found. always use caution and report any unusual symptoms to your MD. If your MD prescribed these together chances are they know what works for you!
my friend did it and was acting really funny and said he blacked out for a few seconds. i wouldnt recommend it
Yes, There is interaction between these two drugs, you can takethese two drugs but not at one time. for complete understandingabout these medicine, consult your healthcare provider or its bestif you can take this medicines as per doctor prescription.
I'm pretty sure you can. I just did and it was pretty fun. You may not want to do too much of either one when they are together, but at low-medium doses they shouldn't interact with each other in any harmful way... I think. Don't do this too often by the way.
no they cannot , you risk getting serotonim syndrom which can make you sick, moody, not think clearly and even death . if you are not sure for future question drugs.com is a wonderful resource.
You can but... I know there may be a depressed respiratory system issue when combining these two drugs. You wont want to be taking them long term together anyway, since sleep inducing drugs and codeine mixed will impair you, inhibiting your normal life. With that all said: I am taking a very reduced… dose of trazodone to get to sleep tonight since the Tylenol #3s wear off in four hours and I'm not interested in waking up in the middle of the night with severe pain ( dental surgery yesterday) but I am highly sensitive to trazodone, I rarely take it.

It may cause Serotonin Syndrome. Its unlikely, but some people are more susceptible to it than others. Serotonin syndrome is a potentially life-threatening condition associated with increased serotonergic activity in the central nervous system (CNS). It is seen with therapeutic medication use, ina…dvertent interactions between drugs, and intentional self-poisoning. Although classically described as the triad of mental status changes, autonomic hyperactivity, and neuromuscular abnormalities, serotonin syndrome is actually a spectrum of clinical findings ranging from benign to lethal. .

Both are designed to help with pain. Hydro would be for short term rather intense pain. Savella for long term chronic but less intense pain. I'm not an m.d. but I am a pain patient. I don't think it'd be wise to take the two together. The pain would define which medication is best. Check with your m….d. (MORE)
Absolutely. I'm prescribed both of them right now. It's perfectly safe. However, if you're trying to get high, the Metaxalone doesn't do anything and the Hydrocodone barely has any effect what so ever. Then again, I am also used to getting high off Percocet, which is Oxycodone. Something completely …different. So if you've taken Oxycodone before and want to get high off of Hydrocodone, good luck...You have to take a lot. (MORE)
yea but dont take too much hydrodone... otherwise it would be harsh on ur liver
Yes. I have the same medication and my doctor told me to take the trazodone first and if it doesn't work in 30min then also take the temazepam.
These two medications do interact with each other so please take as prescribed by a licensed physician with any advice from your pharmacist. The main interaction of concern is: Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients …taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. (MORE)
Maybe. There are several factors which will determine if this is a safe combination for any given patient. Diazepam and hydrocodone belong to different therapeutic classes, however there is significant overlap in their side effect profiles (dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, risk of slip-and-fall, ot…hers). An elderly, frail patient may be at greater risk of these side effects where as an otherwise young and healthy patient may be better able to tolerate them. Diazepam and hydrocodone are both prescription medications. As such, they should only be used (singly or in combination) under specific instructions from your physician or other healthcare provider.

Here's the deal. Opana (aka: Numorphan/oxymorphone HCL (generic) is a very potent analgesic (narcotic pain killer). Even the strongest forms of hydocodone is not even close to the analgesic effects of Opana. They CAN BE taken together. The pitfall of hydrocodone (Vicodin-Lortab- ect.) is the over ab…undant use of acetaminophen (APAP) i.e. Tylenol. This can and will cause liver damage! The narcotic will do less harm than the Tylenol. There is a push by the FDA and other groups to cut the APAP dosage to next to nothing. With any luck, hopefully this will happen this year (2011).... The damage to the liver can be lessened by taking Milk Thistle. Two 10mg Opana with 5 7.5 mg Norco are safe for someone used to taking pain drugs. Even that may not create a no-pain environment.

Yes, these 2 drugs can be taken with no drug interactions. I will say that while taking the 2 drugs, you need to completely avoid the use of alcohol in which this could have some serious effects on the heart. Sources: Medical Doctor
I would like to know myself. my 78 year old mother was on trazodone taking 100 mgs and still can't sleep. She is so exhausted and tired during the day and has no energy and is very weak. I called the doctor and he said he would prescribe ambien as well. Is that safe to take together. what are the si…de effects. (MORE)
