I have two Tylox caps and one 7.5 loritab. I cant get back

Resolved Question:

I have two Tylox caps and one 7.5 loritab. I can't get back to the doctor until Tuesday. Would it be ok to take a Tylox and Loritab in the same day, 5-6 hours apart.

Hello,

As you likely know, the tylox contains oxycodone and the lortab contains hydrocodone, both opioid narcotic pain medications.

You can take both in the same day. However, I would not recommend taking them any closer together than 6 hours. They can make you sleepy, dizzy, imbalanced.

Don't drive when taking these medications.


Feel free to ask any follow up questions you may have and I will be happy to discuss further,
