I suffered a neck injury and was prescribed 5-500 mg vicodin & took it 7 hrs ago. Is it safe to take 1 mg lorazepam for my anxiety (also prescribed)?

Yes: The combination of vicodin (narcotic pain med) and lorazepam (sedative hypnotic) will have additive effects of sedation and sleepiness. But if you're tolerating one of them, the other will probably be ok. Just be cautious about driving or other activities that require judgement. Vicodin typically lasts 3-5 hours, so it's mostly out of your system anyhow. ...Read more

I threw my back out and was prescribed norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 5/325 but it gives me anxiety. I also get prescribed lorazepam 1mg. Can I take both?

I threw my back out and was prescribed norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 5/325 but it gives me anxiety. I also get prescribed lorazepam 1mg. Can I take both?

Technically: I'd suggest taking 1/4 tablet (0.25 mg) of the lorazepam only if you absolutely need to. .. This should help the anxiety. These 2 medications do interact negatively and that might cause hypotension, respiratory depression, Motor functions to slow and vasodilation. If you experience any of these alarming symptoms - head to the ER. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a 10mg dose of Ativan (lorazepam) all at once.
