Caution!: while often taken together, these medications are both very sedating and should be taken with caution. I usually recommend spacing them out by several hours and watching for sedation/lethargy. Make sure someone is home with you.

Concerned: Both hydrocodone and lorazepam can contribute to respiratory depression (slowing breathing) which can be worsened if taken together. I would advise against taking together and speak with your prescribing provider about concerns.
