I take 2mg of Kilonipn once a day. Doctor gave me Demerol 50mg for a painful procedure. Are these really safe to take together? I read it can be bad

Ask and Trust: Discuss your concern w/ your Dr. Perhaps the doses can be lower but the likely result will be to feel very sleepy for the short time you need both. If you want more reassurance, also ask the druggist but your Dr is best to talk w/. Try to reach trust and that will reduce the anxiety and pain too! For the future, consider supporting therapy to optimize the Rx help. ...Read more
