Talk to your doctor : There is a potential interaction between these two medications. You can experience drowsiness, dizziness and difficulty concentrating. Ref: Drug Interactions Checker on Drugs.com. Talk to your doctor about risks, benefits and side effects of your medicine. Don't drink alcohol and don't drive if you experience drowsiness on your medicine. Be safe!

I always suggest not to mix pain pills with benzodiazepines, like Ativan. It can be very dangerous.
