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 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 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

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

I am on 135 mg. of methadone. I take 1 mg. of klonopin, & 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. A neuro surgeon can help you. ...Read more

60mg cymbalta for neuropathy 2mg klonopin anxiety, 5mg oxycodone for nerve pain.Wanted to increase oxycodone from once a day to a higher level, was told combo of klonopin and oxy is deadly is that tru?

60mg cymbalta for neuropathy 2mg klonopin anxiety, 5mg oxycodone for nerve pain.Wanted to increase oxycodone from once a day to a higher level, was told combo of klonopin and oxy is deadly is that tru?

True.: Klonopin is a long-acting benzodiazepine and Oxycodone is a long-acting opiate and can depress the respiratory function . They are also both habit-forming. The Cymbalta will also help with neuropathic pain and instead of increasing the opiate if your pain is still not controlled adding Gabapentin might help. Your PCP could also refer you to a pain center for other pain control measures. ...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
