I take 2mg ativan (lorazepam) daily for 2+years. I took 10mg oxycodone 5 hours and also 10 hours ago. When is it safe to take my ativan (lorazepam)?

Now would be fine: You have a long-term tolerance to ativan (lorazepam). Oxycodone does not last long in your system and your dose is low. The half-life is 3-4.5 hrs, so by that time your oxycodone blood level has dropped 50%. Always take your medication according to your doctor's directions.Best wishes. ...Read more

Do not do it: I would not suggest taking either medication, particularly in the long term. Both put you at risk of becoming addicted. People also build up a tolerance and feel they need more medication to get the same results. Try deep breathing to relieve our anxiety and go see a psychiatrist or therapist. ...Read more

I take Ativan every 12 hours, I’m being switched from Norco to Oxycodone. How long do I have to space Ativan and Oxycodone apart?

I take Ativan every 12 hours, I’m being switched from Norco to Oxycodone. How long do I have to space Ativan and Oxycodone apart?

Try holding Ativan: till done with the Oxycodone, if not feasible, a 6-hour interval would be fine, however you haven't mentioned the dosages you are on. Norco and Oxycodone are almost the same , your doctor/pharmacist would help you better as both are scheduled drugs and should be closely monitored, they do interact and can cause CNS and respiratory depression,so be cautious,lowest effective should be used if needed ...Read more

Hi , does an Ativan tablet work or relieve pain in any way or form like an Oxycodone pill or any pain  IR tablet  ?
Thanks for any info.

No: Ativan is a benzodiazepam class drug used for anxiety. Oxycodone is in the opiate class of drugs used for pain relief. Occasionally, pain is complicated by anxiety, such as a heart attack victim, and they are used together, but additive sedative effects can be a problem. ...Read more

Doc put me on Ativan (lorazepam) .5 mg - having much panic - feeling out of control says to take it when needed, is three pills in one day too much - it helps me?

Doc put me on Ativan (lorazepam) .5 mg - having much panic - feeling out of control says to take it when needed, is three pills in one day too much - it helps me?

Overusing a drug: Yes. It is addictive behavior to take this drug daily and then to take it several times per day. This drug is numbing you up. It is a sedative. It is not treatment or prevention or a cure for Anxiety. The drug should be used extremely sparingly given it's significant risk of causing addiction. ...Read more

My Ativan (lorazepam) is as needed .5 3x a day, Can I take two at one time? As long as I don't take more then 3 in one day.

My Ativan (lorazepam) is as needed .5 3x a day, Can I take two at one time? As long as I don't take more then 3 in one day.

Great Question : The truth is that you CAN take two at a time. The real question is SHOULD you? Ativan (lorazepam) is a short-acting anti-anxiety medication that is very effective. When the effect wears off, patients are inclined to take more. This sets the stage for over-use, misuse and possibly abuse. Talk to your doctor before altering your medication dose or schedule. There are many options to managing your symptoms. ...Read more

If i take a 1mg ativan (lorazepam) pill every morning for severe anxiety. Is this ok? And how long does one pill stay in by body?

If i take a 1mg ativan (lorazepam) pill every morning for severe anxiety. Is this ok?  And how long does one pill stay in by body?

Ativan (lorazepam) 1mg: Ativan (lorazepam) 1mg if used as prescribed should be okay. Its half-life is 8-24 hours. For your body to be at steady state with this, you and your doctor might consider breaking this 1mg into 2, .5mg doses spread out in your day. Even more important, though: what else are you doing to help your anxiety? Meditation, tai chi, qi gong, psychotherapy, etc may be extremely helpful & not add another drug. ...Read more

Can you take ativan .5 and 800mg of skelaxin (metaxalone) together?

Can you take ativan .5 and 800mg of skelaxin (metaxalone) together?

Fine: Taking those two together should be fine. I would ask your primary doctor though to be sure he/she is aware of the medications you are taking and for what is called "continuity of care." making sure your medical record is up to date is important and most emr's can check for any drug to drug interactions if future medications are prescribed as well. Good luck. ...Read more
