Can someone taking nortriptyline for fibromyalgia also take tylenol (acetaminophen) w/ codeine?

Can someone taking nortriptyline for fibromyalgia also take tylenol (acetaminophen) w/ codeine?

Yes, but: The rule of thumb is always caution with combining sedating meds. Combining medications, any medications, presents problems with drug-drug interactions. Sedating medications such as t#3 with nortriptyline will be greater than the sum of the parts. I see you also take methacarbamol, which is sedating as well. Caution is advised. Also look at the amount of Acetaminophen in your excedrin. Caution. ...Read more

Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?

Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?

Probably: I think you mean 5 mg of diazepam, not .5. 75 mg of diphenydramine is a bit high. Tegether, they synergize for additional sedation. Alone, it is probably not enough to be a problem, but if combined with other sedating agents or alcohol, you would be taking a risk, possibly a serious one. ...Read more
