40 year-old white woman with narcolepsy and cataplexy since childhood, plus migraines, still searching for an effective treatment.....?

Please repost: Please repost your question with an explanation of what you mean by "effective" treatment. What is "ineffective" about the current treatment regimen? Bearing in mind that both conditions are hereditary (though the genetics are complex) and the only REALLY effective treatment is to make a better choice of parents. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I was wondering what are the long term-effects of taking hydrocodone (lorcet) + acetaminophen daily?

I was wondering what are the long term-effects of taking hydrocodone (lorcet) + acetaminophen daily?

It depends: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) contains acetaminophen. I would discuss with the doctor who gave you the medicine about your daily total dose of Acetaminophen and your liver function. I would also tell you, there is not a reason for you to take Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) long term. It is a short acting medicine used for a short time. Problems that aren't going away anytime soon, need a long acting medicine, not a short acting one. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

Can I take lortab 7.5 after taking lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10? Thanks in advance.

Lortab/lorcet: Lortab is Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen and Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is the same except a higher amount of hydrocodone.. So it would make no sense to take these two together. It would be like doubling up on anyone of the medications. I doubt very much if this was the advice from the person who prescribed this for your. ...Read more
