Can you take Valium and percocet at the same time?

Can you take Valium and percocet at the same time?

You can, but: It's not a good idea. They will both be sedating and cause you to be drowsy. If your physician has prescribed these for you, please ask him/her about the timing of doses. If you do take both, you should definitely not drive. ...Read more

Valium (Definition)

Valium (diazepam) is an older benzodiazepine tranquilizer. It was the #1 prescribed drug (of any kind) in the us in the late 1960s but is used less now due to drug interactions and active metabolites. It is still used for anxiety and as "pre-medication" for uncomfortable medical and minor surgical procedures. It is habit-forming, should not be used with alcohol, ...Read more

I'm a huge dental phobic. Was given 10mg Valium but it didn't help. I heard Xanax (alprazolam) or percocet works better. Is this true? Which is better. Help!

I'm a huge dental phobic. Was given 10mg Valium but it didn't help. I heard Xanax (alprazolam) or percocet works better. Is this true? Which is better. Help!

Best plan of action: If you're a dental phobic, this would be my personal recommendation. Start by finding a well respected dentist in your area that caters to patients with dental phobias. Call the offce just for a consultation. Discuss your fears & have that dentist suggest appropriate ways to deal with having your dental treatment done. Please don't listen to friends or try to find the answers via the internet. ...Read more

I recently had a herniated disk repaired, can I take my percocet, and valium with my previously perscribed tizanidine?

Surgeon: Speak with your surgeon. The percocet and valium should be quite sufficient in most cases. I tend to recommend minimizing narcotic usage to under a week for this procedure. Make sure you follow the surgeon's post-op protocols. ...Read more

M, W, F I take 3 20mg adderallXR in the AM spaced out an hr apart. At night I take 1 5mg percocet, 3mg lunesta, flexeril & 5mg valium. Is this ok?

WHY?: Why are you taking all of these medications?!

Also that is a lot of Adderall XR, and it's extended-release so you shouldn't have to space it an hour apart per pill

But to answer your question, no it's not ok. ...Read more

Recently prescribed Valium, took 20mg 3 days ago for panic attack. Today I took 10mg Percocet (drug user). Learned Valium long half life. Will I die?

Someday: Someday you will die. But 20 mg Valium (3 days ago) and 10 mg of percocet won't kill you. Nevertheless, you would be wise to not hurry the day, and give up your drug use, perhaps with treatment. ...Read more

My doctor just prescribed me 2x 5mg Valium and 2x 5/325mg percocet to take together half an hour before a cystoscopy. Is it safe?

My doctor just prescribed me 2x 5mg Valium and 2x 5/325mg percocet to take together half an hour before a cystoscopy. Is it safe?

Yes, but talk: It's safe - but you might still want to talk about your concern and ask about what to expect, avoid, do. You might feel sleepy and groggy so plan not to drive - be w/ someone if possible. They are experienced w/ this and can reassure you. ...Read more

Dr has my mom taking valium 5mg 2 times a day and percocet 7.5 mg 2 times a day. .. is that safe? Thought it would cause breathing problems

Dr has my mom taking valium 5mg 2 times a day and percocet 7.5 mg 2 times a day. .. is that safe? Thought it would cause breathing problems

Question is why.: The question is really why she would need those medications on a daily basis, and would there be a suitable, non-addictive option for what ails her. That being said, the daily, regular use of those medications is not generally advised, and could contribute to respiratory depression. ...Read more

Dr has my mom on valium 5mg 2 times a day and percocet 7.5 mg 2 times a day... is this safe? . I always thought it could cause breathing problems

Age?: Depending on the age and what conditions your mom has, I could give a better answer, however, that dosing and combo seems excessive. These are both commonly know to have withdrawal side effects so coming off /down should be under medical advise and gradual. ...Read more

I am having a repair of a mini face lift and the dr is not using an anesthesiologist, . He will use Valium and percocet along with a numbing powder.

Really depends.: Performing a revision can usually be performed exclusively using local anesthesia (no valium/percocet).
I personally don't perform any type of sedation (valium) unless performed in an operating room with an anesthesiologist. ...Read more

Chronic pain patient. Percocet and morphine. Lately myoclonic jerk. Valium helps at night but what about day? Carisoprodol? Advice appreciated

Chronic pain patient. Percocet and morphine. Lately myoclonic jerk. Valium helps at night but what about day? Carisoprodol? Advice appreciated

Don't use Carisoprod: Carisoprodol (Soma) is not effective for myoclonus and is a dangerous drug with multiple side effects. Myoclonus can be caused by many conditions. Medications to treat it are:Levetiracetam (Keppra), clonazepam, valproic acid Other treatments are also used. **A side effect of Morphine is myoclonic jerks.

Which of these has nightmares as a side effect? Oxycodone, percocet, celecoxib, or diazepam (valium)?

Which of these has nightmares as a side effect? Oxycodone, percocet, celecoxib, or diazepam (valium)?

Hard to Say: Side effects of most medications are turning out to be highly individualistic and sometimes based upon genetic susceptibility! This is fairly new research. But, it suggests that any specific side effect is not necessarily going to happen to you.

That said, with the exception of celecoxib, these drugs are narcotics and/or sedative/hypnotics and can cause "dysphoric" feelings and hallucinations. ...Read more

Can I take valium, synthroid, (thyroxine) 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.

Can I take valium, synthroid, (thyroxine) 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.

Yes: However, am concerned about combination of valium and percocet. Both are sedating and can mix in a deadly cocktail. Very worrisome.
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 (polyethylene glycol) which is gentle and effective too. Dulcolax tends to cause cramping; less so with miralax (polyethylene glycol). ...Read more

Dr. Told me to take Nexium, (esomeprazole) but it interacts badly with my Valium. I haven't found any interaction with Prevacid. Ok to take with Valium?

Dr. Told me to take Nexium, (esomeprazole) but it interacts badly with my Valium. I haven't found any interaction with Prevacid. Ok to take with Valium?

Probably: There are drug interactions between almost everything. I can tell you many people take a proton pump inhibitor and a benzodiazepine without any problem, especially if both are taken on as needed basis. I assume you are already avoiding foods that provoke acid reflux, and working on weight loss if overweight. That will cut down need for drugs like nexium, (esomeprazole) unless you have other reasons for taking it ...Read more
