Taking tramadol/soma (carisoprodol) combo helps my pain/burning from radiculopathy more than anything. Only take 1 Soma (carisoprodol) at bedtime. Why won't neuro prescribe soma (carisoprodol)?

Taking tramadol/soma (carisoprodol) combo helps my pain/burning from radiculopathy more than anything. Only take 1 Soma (carisoprodol) at bedtime. Why won't neuro prescribe soma (carisoprodol)?

Soma+Tram=Bad Idea: Seizures are one of the most important & dangerous side effects of Tramadol & Soma (carisoprodol). Take both together & cross your fingers. Soma (carisoprodol) not intended or approved for long term use and habit forming (as is Tramadol). I understand your plight of pain but both these drugs together? You're dancing with the devil and he ain't even that good lookin' to make it worth your while. I agree with the neurologist. ...Read more

I take kolonipin 1 mg 3 times a day.. Had a fusion and was prescribed 5 mg Percocet and 350 mg soma (carisoprodol)... Is this ok to take ?

OK with guidelines: The mix of benzodiazepines and opiates, like the ones given to you for pain, is unfortunately a very common practice . It has potential risks for addiction and to worsen depression. However you may be in need of such mix at this point in time. Good for you to be concerned, make sure you only take them as prescribed and try to request a titration or downscale as soon as you can. ...Read more

Is it safe to take robaxin 500mg 2x a day, trazodone 50mg, Zoloft (sertraline) 50 mg, ibuprofen 800 4x a day, and vicodin 5/500mg every 8-10 hrs together?

Is it safe to take robaxin 500mg 2x a day, trazodone 50mg, Zoloft (sertraline) 50 mg, ibuprofen 800 4x a day, and vicodin 5/500mg every 8-10 hrs together?

Ask your doctor : Each of the listed medications may cause side effects and there is a possibility for drug-drug interaction. Discuss this regime with your prescribing doctor as there may be extenuating circumstances that justify this regimen. Vicodin may lead to tolerance, dependance and addiction. Ibuprofen 4 x a day may lead to serious side effects. ...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)

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

How does kadian (morphine) 50mg compare with norco 325mg?

A lot more : Kadian (extended release morphine) has the same pain reducing potency (mg for mg) as hydrocodone, which is in norco. The 325 in Norco 325 refers to the tylenol (acetaminophen) dose. Usually there is another number (5 or 10) preceding it (eg. Norco 5/325) which indicates the hydrocodone dose. So Kadian 50 is like 10 Norco 5/325s. Beware: taking greater than 3000 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) per day can cause severe liver damage. ...Read more

Which is stronger: hydromorphone HCl 8mg or oxycodone HCl 30mg or methadone 10mg?

Which is stronger: hydromorphone HCl 8mg or oxycodone HCl 30mg or methadone 10mg?

Opiods for pain: Hydromorphone 8 mg is roughly equivalent to Oxycodone 30 mg. I assume you are asking re oral medications. Both of these are effective for moderate to severe pain. In the US, Methadone is restricted to programs for treating opiod addiction, and is generally not used for pain relief. ...Read more

Could i take 300-15 codeine / apap with carisoprodol 350mg?

Yes and No: Carisoporodol should only be used for a short term and not chronically for pain. It is very similar to benzodiazipines such as valium and ativan (lorazepam). These medications can interact with pain medications and cause worsening of side effects and respiratory depression. I would discuss this with your pcp. ...Read more
