Can You Take Lorazepam With Vicodin
Yes: Yes, that's enough of a time gap. ...Read more
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
My mom is prescribed 2mg of ativan (lorazepam) and Vicodin ES. How long should it be in between her taking the ativan (lorazepam) over the Vicodin?
Sedatives: They are never great to take together. They decrease your respirations and can lead to problems with breathing. If absolutely necessary separate them as far as possible. ...Read more
Severe itching all over and small red bite-like rash all over except face for 4 plus wks. No bed bugs, no new detergent or meds. Rx: ativan (lorazepam) & vicodin?
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
I take norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 5-325 2 to 3 tabs a day and lorazepam 1 mg 1 tab at bedtime. I do this every day, why would they not show on a ua? I am a waitress for a living (lots of running), 150 lbs, 5' 5" 29 yrs old and thin.
Can cause sedation.: In addition to acetaminophen, Naproxen or ibuprofen, midol contains pyrilamine which is an anti-histamine. It can cause drowsiness and dizziness which is compounded by ativan (lorazepam). I would advise you to use caution when using both, see how your body reacts, and separate the doses out as much as possible if needed. ...Read more

Ativan (lorazepam): Yes u can.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not a good idea: Not sure why you would want to do this. Lorazepam and temazepam are both benzodiazepines. Temazepam is more sedating and used for insomnia. Lorazepam is less sedating and commonly used for anxiety or agitation, but they both have the same mechanism of action and both are addictive. The combined amount you you describe is a very high dose of benzodiazepine. ...Read more
Bad idea: You would be compounding your use of benzodiazepines. Talk with your prescriber about treating your symptoms with only one. ...Read more

Lorazepam: Why not ask the doctor who prescribed the lorazapam for you? The schedule you've outlined makes sense, as long as it makes sense with your life and your symptoms. You and your doctor know much more about that than doctors who have never met you. Best wishes. ...Read more
No: The usual daily dose range of lorazepam (Ativan), a benzodiazepine, is 2 to 6 mg/day. And this would be divided into 1, 2 or 3 mg per dose. As I hope you know, this medication is highly addictive. I am worried that you if you are wanting to take such a large dose that dependence has developed. You need to review your usage with the prescribing doctor and conform to the prescribed plan. Good wishes ...Read more
Yes, but....: ....if you're taking 800 mg ibuprofen you may only take it every 8 hrs. I suggest you NOT take that high a dose very long. I'm unaware of any adverse reaction between NSAIDs and Ativan (lorazepam); doesn't mean there isn't a some chance. For confirmation, speak with the prescribing physician for the Ativan (lorazepam). Good luck. ...Read more
