It could: That early out it could be a trigger for relapse, is the procedure necessary now, could it be done without the percocet, who also is a part of your recovery, does the doctor who is doing the procedure know about your history of addiction?

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?

These 2 medications do interact negatively and that might cause hypotension, respiratory depression, Motor functions to slow and vasodilation.

Recently off librium still have minor withdrawal.Dr gave me 10 ativan (lorazepam) for anxiety said 10 pill taper will not set me back with recovery. Is this true?

Ativan (lorazepam) and Librium are both benzodiazepines which is why they could both be used in a tapering fashion to help discontinue the librium. Best wishes! ...Read more

I stopped my sotalol 40 mg 1x daily 48 hrs ago, is it safe to start breastfeeding my 2 week old? I am still taking Advil (ibuprofen) and hydrocodone  for recovery
