I take 5mg of methadone daily. 2.5 in morning 2.5 at night. I was prescribed. 5mg of lorazepam. Is it Ok to take at night with my methadone dosage?
Watch closely!: There is a common interaction of increased drowsiness and sedation. It can be a serious issue, so check w/ your provider to be sure it's not too high a dose of either or both. Don't just modify it yourself - have a provider look into the safest regimen. Work w/ the providers to become a responsible self-manager - they'll be more helpful that way.

SHORTER ACTING: I would recommend the shorter acting xanax or Ativan as these are more manageable to avoid over-sedation and lasting too long into the trip. As far as sleep aids to help with the whole time change thing, consider melatonin over the counter or even sonata (zaleplon).See 3 more doctor answers

I took 1mg of lorazepam this evening, and about two hours later, my 100mg dose of Nucynta. Safe? Feel ok but nervous I took too close together.
No: The usual daily dose range of lorazepam (Ativan), a benzodiazepine, is 2 to 6 mg/day. And this would be divided into 1, 2 or 3 mg per dose. As I hope you know, this medication is highly addictive. I am worried that you if you are wanting to take such a large dose that dependence has developed. You need to review your usage with the prescribing doctor and conform to the prescribed plan. Good wishes
