Can I Take Percocet And Ativan At The Same Time
Carefully: Ativan (lorazepam) is a valium derivative that is used for anxiety, tension, and for seizures. The side effect is sleepiness. Low doses are usually well tolerated and will relax you and allow usual function. Higher doses will put you to sleep. Understand why you are using it. Balance the benefit to the side effects. ...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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My drug screen results were negative, why? I take percocet and ativan (lorazepam) on a daily basis, my screen results did not find them in my system. Knowing that i take my meds daily, i cannot understand why they did not show.
Many possiblereasons: Oxycodone may not show up on a drug screen unless the screen is specifically geared to that drug. Ativan (lorazepam) should show up, but it depends on the dose. If you are on a low dose (0.5 mg a day) it may be negative. Also, if you are drinking large amounts of water, it dilutes your urine to where drugs may be below the detection limit of the test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was prescribed 1mg Ativan (lorazepam) 2x/day today by a specialist who knows I take 10mg Percocet 5x/day. I've read that it is not safe to mix the two and I don't want to cause more problems than I have already. Is this safe? What could happen? Suggesti
Talk with doctor: The combination of opiates (Percocet) and benzodiazepines (Ativan) can depress respiratory function and be a problem. They are frequently used together however. Adding a sleep aid such as Ambien (zolpidem) makes this even more risky (think of Heath Ledger) so you should discuss your concerns with your prescribing physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why didn't my medicine "percocet" or "ativan" show up in my drug screen? I have a herniated disc in my lower back and panic attacks, i take my medicine daily, just as prescribed, but neither showed up in my drug test... Can you help me?
Percocet : Percocet is a narcotic (opiate class) pain medication made up of a combination of oxycodone and Acetaminophen (tylenol). It would show up in a drug test as oxycodone or as an opiate depending on the test. Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine called Lorazepam used for anxiety and a few other problems. Since Ativan (lorazepam) is the brand name, it usually show up in drug tests under it's generic name Lorazepam or as a benzodiazpine which is it's class of medication. If nothing showed up in your urine drug test and you are taking these medications daily as prescribed, you may want to call your doctor and have it repeated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I ve taken 20mg of percocet for dental pain i'm having, can I take my ativan (lorazepam) 0.5 mg only an hour after the percocet?
Not recommended: Both of these drugs have additive affects. They both cause respiratory depression. Care must be taken when combining sedatives with narcotics and don't ever mix with alcohol. You need to cut done on the percocet, that is a fairly high dose for dental pain. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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
Ativan (lorazepam): As prescribed, should be ok.Get a more detailed answer ›
Can you take ativan (lorazepam) and trazadone at the same time. I take 100mg of trazadone at night and three .5 Ativan (lorazepam) daily as needed.
Yeah, I guess: Trazodone is an antidepressant generally used for its side effect of making people sleepy. Ativan is a potentially addictive sedative that is often used for anxiety but is only supposed to be used SHORT TERM. They have slight interaction, and you might be sleepy from that (when you go to bed). This interaction is mild and often beneficial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe to take 750mg of methocarbamal and 5-325mg of percocet at the same time or should i space it out?
Drowsiness: The combination of these two drugs would not generally be recommended because of side effects. Percocet is a strong narcotic and is a moderate dose. One of the common side effects of narcotics is drowsiness and it can suppress your breathing. Restoril (temazepam) is a sleeping aid and can have the same effects, in fact, this is the desired effect of Restoril (temazepam). I'd recommend NOT taking these together. ...Read more

I have a prescription for dilaudud and Percocet for kidney issues. Can I alternate them Every 6 hours? I know not to take them at the same time.
Be very careful.: Both are highly addictive medications and if taken too long or too much, it can actually damage your kidneys. Please go back to your doctor to ask him how long you will take the medication because it is not a long term solution to kidney stones. The answer is to get rid of the stones and there are many ways. ...Read more
Yes. I have taken one .5mg of Ativan (lorazepam) yesterday and one of the same today. I don't wish to take this medicine anymore after today. Will I have any serious withdrawal?
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
No: You shouldn't. It is irrational to use two benzodiazepines at one time. If it is being prescribed, your prescriber may not be aware of the dangers (or irrationality) of using two potent benzos together. If it is not being prescribed, you are clearly having benzodiazepine abuse. This combination produces significant physical dependency, and should not be stopped abruptly but tapered. Seek help. ...Read more
