Yes: Try very hard to avoid such accidents. They can be serious. 20mg is a high single dose. Neither is intended for more than short term. The combo increases chance/severity of side effects. Definitely talk to Dr who gave the Rx(s) for clear safe instructions. I hope your pain finds relief, but it may need things other than drugs. Be careful, best wishes!
