Lab data: It is very difficult, if not impossible to interpret lab data in the absence of clinical information or relevance. My advice is to discuss this with the doctor who ordered these tests and not try to self-diagnose over the internet. Best wishes. ...Read more
Yes: You may take these two medicines together. The Ibuprofen will not enhance the effect of the Lorazepam as it is not a narcotic. 600 mg Ibuprofen should not be taken more than every 6 hours.

Get second opinion: The combination could readily backfire, as the Elavil (amitriptyline) and Ativan can both cause anti-cholinergic side effects, and additive sedation, lethargy, and dizziness. Both very low dose, but nonetheless may cause more problems than success. Not clear why these two have been started together. ?Psych Concierge appt? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The difference is that 2 of the 5/325 mg tabs would give you 650 mg of Acetaminophen (same as tylenol), whereas the 10/325 mg would only be 325 mg. The latest warnings indicate that you want to take the lowest dose of Acetaminophen possible, so my suggestion would be to take one of the 10/325 mg tabs instead of 2 of the 5/325 mg tabs. ...Read more

Talk to your doctor about your tylenol dose - it should not be more than 2000 mg a day in general.Opioids should never be only RX ...Read more

I took hydrocodone 5-325 a few hours ago. About 10 minutes ago I took 5000 mg of Tylenol, do I need to go to the er?
No: While your total dose definitely exceeds the daily recommendations of no more than 3000 mg a day, a one time, one day dose of 5325mg is not going to cause liver failure in a healthy adult. However, if you took that large dose with the intention of harming yourself, then an ER visit is definitely in order. ...Read more

Be careful: Just this one time you should be okay. I worry that you do not have a good system in place to monitor your medicines. You can use the small pill boxes and load medicines on daily or weekly basis. You could have a schedule written down and mark off medicines as you take them bgood luck! Be safe!!! ...Read more
I take hydrocodone 5-325 daily for chronic neck pain and migraines. How many per day can I take before it will hurt my organs?
Difficult to say: In general opioids are very safe long term. Perhaps even more dangerous is the tylenol (acetaminophen) often associated with the opioids - in your case the 325mg. Please be sure to keep total daily dosage under 4000mg, long term i would suggest less than 2000mg. Finally have your doc check liver and kidney function every 6months while on these meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hydrocodone: is a narcotic pain medication and in conjunction with Ambien (zolpidem) can cause fatal drug-drug reactions. H-C is NOT a sleeping pill and it seems that you are also on medication for depression and anxiety (Lexapro). You are gambling with your life.
