Possibly, not likely: Ativan (lorazepam), (lorazepam) being a benzodiazepine, could cause disinhibition in a manner akin to what occurs in alcohol intoxication and this could lead to hyperactivity and impulsivity. If you taking Ativan (lorazepam) that is prescribed, I would consider describing your side effects to the prescribing physician. If you using Ativan (lorazepam) recreationally, I would stop doing so as this could be dangerous. ...Read more
Not adviseable: You can, but I wouldn't advise it. Taking 2 sedating medications at the same time is never a good idea. ...Read more
Caution....: Please keep in mind that taking medications that cause drowsiness, such as Ativan, a benzodiazepine, and Atarax, (hydroxyzine) an antihistiamine, can exacerbate the drowsiness and can lead to sedation. These side effects impair one's ability to execute functions such as driving or operating machinery. Recommending discussing with your doctor first and getting clearance. Hope this is helpful. All the best. ...Read more
Both: Both medications can be addictive. Xanax (alprazolam) acts quickly which is why it is desired by most people. Ativan acts relatively quickly as well but not as immediate as xanax (alprazolam). Both medications can be addicting and should only be taken as needed or as advised by your physician. ...Read more

Use caution: Percocet is a narcotic pain med and Ativan is a benzodiazepine. They are both sedating drugs that can cause drowsiness, impaired coordination, slowed respiration, cognitive dulling and dizziness. I would advise caution using both of them together. They should not be used together at high doses. Perhaps you can try a less potent analgesic like a non-steroidal med such as Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read more

Muscle relaxant: Benzodiazepines like Ativan (lorazepam) don't treat pain directly. But they can help 2 other ways: by decreasing the mental suffering associated with pain, and by helping muscles relax. Remember that like other benzos, Ativan is habit-forming if used daily and consistently over time; once tolerance develops it can be hard to stop. It's quite safe if used occasionally at low doses. ...Read more
Please repost: Please be more specific: How much Ativan? How often? Is the case of myasthenia asymptomatic, mild, moderate or severe? What muscle groups are most affected? Benzodiazepines modulate GABA receptors. MG is a disease of acetylcholine receptors. There is no direct interference. Any effects would be indirect. ...Read more
Yes: However, they are both sedating, so the combination increases the risk of CNS depression (impaired concentration, alertness, sharp thinking, etc) and motor function (driving, coordination, etc). At high doses, respiration (breathing) can be impaired. It's a risky combination, but not out of the question. ...Read more
