Yes: No interactions were found between ativan (lorazepam) & ibuprofen using a drug interaction checker. That does not mean the a reaction isn't possible.

? spell: Ibuprofen: I am going to assume you mean ibuprofen which is an OTC anti-inflammatory and pain med. It is ok with Ativan (lorazepam) which is for anxiety.

Safe: as long as you are taking your prescribed doses, ibuprofen and ativan (lorazepam) do not have any major dangerous interactions.

Can you take ativan (lorazepam) with nyquil?

Ativan/niquil: Nyquil contains a sedating antihistamine as well as alcohol in the liquid form. Ativan (lorazepam) is a sedative. Probably not a good idea to combine all three!

Carefully: Ativan (lorazepam) is a valium derivative that is used for anxiety, tension, and for seizures. The side effect is sleepiness. Low doses are usually well tolerated and will relax you and allow usual function. Higher doses will put you to sleep. Understand why you are using it. Balance the benefit to the side effects.

No reports: No problems are reported of an interaction between these medications - but ALWAYS do discuss all medications and even supplements or unusual diet items w/ your providers. It helps them make better decisions for you and improves their knowledge bank too. Best!
