Can i take valium, synthroid, and percocet with Dulcolax sensitive stomache for women for constipation? I am afraid to mix and i only this laxative available and I have not defecated pain medication.

Percocet is the cause of constipation--any way to cut back or talk to doctor about alternative pain control measures? Increase fluids, fiber, consider MiraLAX which is gentle and effective too. Dulcolax tends to cause cramping; less so with miralax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Central nervous system depression, which can be potentially lethal - respiratory depression, aspiration, coma, death and brain damage - can occur with combinations of opioids and alcohol.

I was prescribed 1mg Ativan 2x/day today by a specialist who knows I take 10mg Percocet 5x/day. I've read that it is not safe to mix the two and I don't want to cause more problems than I have already. Is this safe? What could happen? Suggestions?
Talk with doctor: The combination of opiates (Percocet) and benzodiazepines (Ativan) can depress respiratory function and be a problem. They are frequently used together however. Adding a sleep aid such as Ambien makes this even more risky (think of Heath Ledger) so you should discuss your concerns with your prescribing physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
