Is it safe to mix hydroxyzine and valium? E.g. 5mg valium in the morning, then hydroxyzine at night? If on it do you still need to take zyrtec 4allerg

Is it safe to mix hydroxyzine and valium? E.g. 5mg valium in the morning, then hydroxyzine at night? If on it do you still need to take zyrtec 4allerg

Ok: Since you are taking hydroxyzine at night, it is fine as long as you are not working a nightshift since this may make you drowsy. Zyrtec is simply a more pure form of hydroxyzine with less drowsiness effect and thus you may not need to take a Zyrtec for allergy. However it can be added if necessary. ...Read more

Valium (Definition)

Valium (diazepam) is an older benzodiazepine tranquilizer. It was the #1 prescribed drug (of any kind) in the us in the late 1960s but is used less now due to drug interactions and active metabolites. It is still used for anxiety and as "pre-medication" for uncomfortable medical and minor surgical procedures. It is habit-forming, should not be used with alcohol, ...Read more

I took an Valium 5mg tablet and Hydroxyzine HCl 25mg at 6pm can I take my 10mg Ambien (zolpidem) now 1030pm?

Ambien (zolpidem): Ambien (zolpidem) should be taken no longer than a few days in a row. You need to coordinate your care with one MD if you have access to 3 different CNS depressant medications. Respiratory depression can occur. Also all have withdrawal states and can precipitate clinical depression. ...Read more

Is there only 5 mg in the roche 10 valium?

shouldn't be: All medications, whether branded or generic, sold in the United States, are required by the food and drug administration (fda) to have plus or minus twenty per cent of the stated dose to be legal.
So a medication which states 10mg can have between 8 and 12 mgs, which for some patients, may make a noticeable difference in their treatment. But 50 % difference should not be possible. ...Read more

Need a Valium taper plan?

Need a Valium taper plan?

The slower the bette: When it comes to tapering someone off valium, i take it very slowly. I do not want to see one of my patients lulled into the false security that they can quickly taper off valium only to have them have a seizure 2 to 4 weeks later. Valium is a very long acting drug. Without knowing what type of anxiety you're being treated for, it is difficult for me to state that you should take an antidepressant . There have been some reports of using tegretol, an anticonvulsant in the long-term use of valium withdrawal to improve patient compliance and comfort during the long withdrawal process. Please lower valium under the direction of your psychiatrist. Take it slowly especially as you get down to lower amounts or withdrawal typically becomes more difficult. I wish you the best in this process and know that you can come off of the medication given proper emotional and if necessary medicinal support. ...Read more

Can people be allergic to valium?

Not common: I would wonder if the allergy is to the inactive ingredient in the tablet of diazepam as opposed to an allergy to diazepam itself because it is an uncommon allergy although i suppose it is possible. A more common consideration would be an adverse behavioral change related to the administration of diazepam including severe disinhibition or aggression. Stay safe! ...Read more
