I take ambien 10 and temazipam and 200mg seroquel xr and still can't sleep, will taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm help?
NO: You are having either drug resistance to medication or an improbable case of chronic insomnia. I suggest a sleep study to rule out obstructive sleep apnea . Ask about Rozerem (ramelteon) and Belsomra, new, non- addictive forms of sleeping medication. Ambien and temazepam are both quite sedating and potentially addictive. Speak to you prescribing physician. ...Read more

My Dr prescribed Norco 10/325 For knee pain and Atarax (hydroxyzine) 25 Mg for anxiety. Can i take Norco and Atarax (hydroxyzine) 25 Mg Together or space it out.
Good question: Better to hold the atarax (hydroxyzine) till done with the norco, taking both together might cause you CNS depression (e.g. drowsiness), spacing them out , morning and evening may reduce the combined side effects, but the problem is that atarax (hydroxyzine) stays in the system much more than the norco (~ 40 hours for atarax (hydroxyzine) vs ~ 10 for norco) , good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications :) ...Read more
Took 300 mg/day of theanine for anxiety, but now on Lexapro 10 mg, but the theanine helped quickly, like xanax (alprazolam). Can I take both lexapro and theanine?
Theanine is suppleme: Theanine is supplement so there usually is not reliable research available. Lexipro is an SSRI antidepressant There shouldn't be any problem with a trial of both of these meds in the dosage you mentioned . If you had any apparent side effects I would discuss them with your psychiatrist ...Read more

I take Dilantin hydroxyzine geodon klonopins cyclobenzaprine morphinesulfate hydrocodone and I have severe anger depression anxiety i need a med that can relax me mentally and physically.Tried lithium limictal seroquel problems got worse please help me?
Lots of Meds: First of all i empathize with you. However i think you need to see a psychiatrist to review all your medications. Your could be self medicating because i wouldn't know any physician that would prescribe hydrocodone for depression. Klonopin (clonazepam) or Clonazepam actually in the long run causes depression or can make it much worse. You need 1 doctor to work with you. Be honest and then treatment can begin! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Switch from klonopin (clonazepam) 2mgs to ativan 6mgs for anxiety and panic attacks was on klonopin (clonazepam) for years but it's my 4day on ativan and i feel great normal?
You still have some: Klonopin (clonazepam) may still be hanging around your system. About 5-7 days from now it will havre sworn out and hopefully the Lorazepam will still have an adequate effect, which i believe is highly likely.. Congrats on finally feeling better. It's been a long haul. Best wishes. Dr. Jacobson. ...Read more
I am taking a prescribed dose of vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) and also prescribed oxycodone. Last urine test showed hydrocodone, no o-oxycodone. Could Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause this?
Test limitstion: This is a limitation of in office urine screen testing. The kind that are commonly used have a high error rate. The next step should be sending the urine out to a laboratory for confirmation. The tests done there are highly accurate. Office cup tests are enzyme linked immuno-assay, laboratories can do a test called liquid chromatography/ mass spectroscopy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am prescribed diazepam 10mg 1x daily also baclofen and prozac (fluoxetine).I recently failed a ua and they said it showed 007 clonazepam and lorazepam. Why?
Medication effects: I understand your concern. The Lab most likely tested for Benzodiazepines. It showed positive as Diazepam, Clonazepam and Lorazepam are Benzodiazepines. Prozac and Diazepam can cause Anxiety. Using Diazepam with Baclofen may increase dizziness, difficulty concentrating, some impairment in thinking and judgment.

Mu doctor had me on 8 norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10/325 a day but switched me to percocet 5/325 30 mg daily. The doctor said percocet was stronger but im in bad pain?
About the same : Opioids are all compared to the "gold standard"; which is 10mg intramuscular (IM) morphine. 2 Vicodin is equivalent to 1mg morphing IM. 2 Percocet equals 3mg, so it's stronger. HOWEVER, the best choice is always what works best for the patient. There is no real difference in dependence risk. Don't take more than prescribed, there is Tylenol (acetaminophen) in both and too much can seriously harm your liver, ...Read more
I have back pain all over my back and shoulders is it ok to take flexeral I am currently taking many meds Zoloft (sertraline) 200 mg klonopin .25mg and trazadone?
Hello docs. I was wondering can tramadol ativan and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) be taken together?
Yes with caution: I would talk with the prescribing physician and review the specific regimen intended. The tramadol may be acting as a way of reducing the reliance on the relatively higher strength Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) i hope. Additionally, the Lorazepam has a capacity for producing respiratory suppression and could be dangerous in the context of too many opioid therapies being administered simultaneously. Stay safe! ...Read more
