I have been prescribed anaprox (naproxen) , lorcet, and ativan . Ok to take together?

Be careful: These three medications should be safe to take provided you take the dose that you were prescribed. Anaprox (naproxen) is fairly safe on its own, make sure you follow the dose instructions for Lorcet and Ativan carefully. If you take significantly too much of either in a short time you may have some trouble breathing. As always, if you experience any side effects or changes, contact your physician.

I was prescribed lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain. I have hiatal hernia, the heartburn is bad, ?

Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) bad idea: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should not be use for hiatal hernia pain. If you have a big hiatal hernia you may be masking pain from an ulcer or low blood flow to the stomach. If you have just heartburn then once or twice a day Nexium (esomeprazole) is an excellent choice. An endoscopy should be done to check for ulcers or infection with a bacteria called h. Pylori. All else fails then surgery is a good choice.

I've been taking topamax (topiramate) 50 mg for about 3 weeks. I also take lorcet klonopin nadbflexaril. Is it safe to mix these?

I've been taking topamax (topiramate) 50 mg for about 3 weeks. I also take lorcet klonopin nadbflexaril. Is it safe to mix these?

No.: My bias is "no." it is unclear if you have just added topomax to this regimen or not. If so, and if you are scrupulous in making sure that you aren't doped up, confused, etc., it may be alright. I would have a frank discussion with your doctor about this. This combo of four drugs - all of which have potentially sedating effects - is worrisome.

Long-term effects: Long-term utilization of opioids (narcotics) could possibly lead to the development of tolerance and also carries the risk of addiction. As such, prolonged use should only be utilized under the close supervision of your physician or specialized pain practitioner. Long-term, higher doses of Acetaminophen (4gms/day) risk potential hepatic (liver) damage.
