For future: For future reference , it is a good idea to avoid mixing alcohol with other drugs including antibiotics, hydrocodone, and promethezine. You can't be certain when you will need the meds for nausea or pain and should not mix them on top of alcohol either.

Finish the question: The drugs you are taking are standard post op. prescriptions for augmentations but you should not be using very much of the medicine by now. Ibuprofen (Advil (ibuprofen) etc.) should be sufficient. Get off the valium and all will settle down.
