Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
I have a closed breast MRI this morning. I am very anxious. I have taken Hydroxyzpam left over from poison ivy and have some Skelaxin and ativan. What should I take?
Welcome to Just answer !
Kindly answer a few queries.
1) How much dose of Hydroxyzpam have you taken so far and when was the last dose taken ?
2) Do you intend to take either skelaxin or Ativan to settle your nerves and allay your anxiety ? Is this what you are asking that is to choose between the two ?
3) What doses of skelaxin and Ativan do you have with you at the moment ?
I will get back to you once you reply to my queries.
I took 3x 25mg Hydroxypam at 6 am. MRI is at 11 am. I plan to take whatever you suggest about 10am. I weigh 220 lbs. I have on hand
Skelaxin 800mg and Atavan 1mg. (I also have Temazepam l5mg and Benadryl 25 mg.)
I will suggest that you may take 0.5 mg Ativan ( 1/2 of 1 mg tablet ) at 10 am which shall allay your anxiety , this I say keeping in mind your weight. You see since you have already taken 75 mg hydroxyzpam so 1 mg of Ativan shall not be ideal for you to take due to the risk of their additive effect making you too much drowsy / groggy.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
