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

I'm taking 5-325mg percocet. which percocet contains no tylenol (acetaminophen)?

There aren't any: Let me explain - "Cet or cette" at the end of medications means it contains acetaminophen or tylenol.

It also comes in sustained release long-acting versions in doses ranging from 10mg - 80 mg. ...Read more

How does opana ER 30 mg and Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 mg be taken together safely?

If a doctor has: prescribed you both drugs, I am not sure why you are not asking the prescribing physician and/or the pharmacist who is dispensing the drug. If 2 doctors are prescribing, and one doesn't know about the other, that is a problem. If neither is prescribed, YOU SHOULD NOT be taking these meds. In general, ER drugs result in a steady state of opiate, and Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 mg could be taken at any time with it. ...Read more

Please help docs! is opana 5 stronger than norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10?

Pound per pound therefore, Opana is much , much strong compared with Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and utmost care should be exercised if for instance a switch is to occur from Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) use to opana, . ...Read more
