I am on 135 mg. of methadone. I take 1 mg. of klonopin, (clonazepam) & occasionally 10 mg. of oxycodone for herniated discs.  Is this dangerous to take?

Yes: Methadone is a difficult drug to manage. In order to get off it has to be with a physicians help. You should not be on any of those meds. Herniated discs are common but do not require opiates(oxycodone) or a sedative such as klonopin (clonazepam). A neuro surgeon can help you. ...Read more

May cause dizziness: It might combine to leave you drowsy or dizzy or confused. If you avoid dangerous activities (driving) it may not be too bad but definitely ask the Dr 'why'? Also, ask about safer alternatives and good instructions on what to watch for and what to do if there's a problem. Don't drink alcohol! ...Read more

Always be careful: methadone is a very effective pain medication with great pain control with less psychological overtunes You are on a lot of medication and some overlap like ambien (zolpidem) and klonopin, Soma and methadone and Lexapro and tofranil Also tofranil mixes with the methadone Make sure you are being followed closely ...Read more

Would klonopin and xanax (alprazolam) come up as just benzos or 2 specific things in a drug test by pain management clinic? Same question for oxycodone 5mg

Would klonopin and xanax (alprazolam) come up as just benzos or 2 specific things in a drug test by pain management clinic? Same question for oxycodone 5mg

Depends on what drug: test they are doing. They are NOT all the same. Some screening tests will not pick up clonazepam (klonopin) at all, while other forms of drug testing will. In some kinds of tests, it will be differentiated, while others will just say positive for benzodiazepines. Oxycodone also requires some specialized testing, and many opiate tests will not detect it. Most tests now test for all of them. ...Read more

I take oxycodone for neuropathy of feet, oxycodone helps but my heart beats a little fast when i come down from the oxy i feel very nervous, can I take 1 mg of clonazepam as soon as i feel nervous.

Narcotic withdrawl: How many pills of oxycodone are you taking daily ? You could have developed a dependency on it and your heart rate goes up possibly due to withdrawal , that is why you get nervous also, you should not take Klonopin (clonazepam) as it may cause dependency itself and it shouldn't be mixed with narcotics, narcotics are not indicated for neuropathic pain , the best thing would be toget off of oxycodone good luck. ...Read more

Stop oxycodone: 1- stop oxycodone- may be side effect. 2-oxycodone is not a drug of choice for neuropathy 3- the use of both oxycodone and Klonopin (clonazepam) can lead to a drug-drug- interaction or overdose 4-have your physican change your medican to non-narcotic anxiety meds. 5- you may be withdrawing from oxycodone- check with your physician. ...Read more

Addiction, tolerance: Hi. I'm not preaching at you, but those are 3 controlled substances, all of which are potentially addicting, and all of which can induce tolerance. And if I had to guess, I'd guess you have a low pain threshold and an addictive personality. Might I suggest you worry less about your sleep and more about your chemical dependency. Again, not preaching, just wishing you good health. Good luck! ...Read more

New pdoc Rx’d Xanax (alprazolam) ER 1mg every 6hr as needed. Took @ 1pm. OK to take 1mg Klonopin (older RX) @ 9pm, or bad mix? (Can't sleep full night w/ Xanax (alprazolam) ER)

Mixing is bad: Your physician prescribed those medications with the intention of you taking only those medications. Both Xanax (alprazolam) and klonopin are in the same class of medications and could cause an overdose. Absolutely do not take those medications at the same time without your doctor knowing. This could result in death from respiratory depression secondary to benzodiazepine overdose. ...Read more

I take 300mg lamictal, 900mg lithium, 50mg Luvox (fluvoxamine) and 1 mg klonopin every day. Is there something odd about this? PMHNP said Luvox (fluvoxamine) n lithium don't mix

Drug interaction: Lithium and Luvox (fluvoxamine) together can increase the chances of serotonin syndrome( and NMS)...which are rare but dangerous conditions. Your healthcare professional should monitor you regularly. Also lithium with klonopin can increase sedation ( tiredness), so you should be careful driving , operating machinery etc ...Read more

Is it okay to mix subutex with oxycodone?

NO: If you have an oxycodone habit - are physically dependent on the - and you take a Suboxone, you will experience withdrawal, which can be severe. If you are not, the suboxone will pretty much completely block the effect of the oxycodone. If suboxone is prescribed to you, your prescriber needs to educate you. If you are taking these without prescription, get some help with your drug problem. ...Read more

I recently took a Valium and oxycodone per doctors request for pain. Now I'm reading that you're not supposed to mix the two. Will I be okay?
