I was bitten by...

I was bitten by a cat yesterday. I am taking Augmentin and a Medrol Dose pack, which I started yesterday. I was also given Percocet for pain. I take Klonopin 2mg every night. I took Percocet at 6 PM and Klonopin at 10 PM. The Percocet was 5 mg. Is that safe? I just want to make sure I waited long enough before taking the Klonopin. I also took Zoloft at 10 PM

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

AM - liothyronine and armour thyroid PM Zoloft, atorvastatin and Zoloft.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have also taken Augmentind and started the Medrol Dose Pack yesterday for the infection from the cat bite

Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.
I'm reviewing your question now & will post back with the reply soon.

Ask Your Own Health Question

I understand your concern.
As per your description, I would advise you to take Percocet and Klonopin at different timings as Percocet in morning and Klonopin at night.

It's not good to take them together as there is a drug interaction between them.

Today, you have taken them with a gap so you should watch for unusual shortness of breath, choking sensation and dizziness, confusion.

If you develop any symptoms then see your doctor soon.

I did take Percocet this morning but was still in a lot of pain. I did wait 4 hours before taking the Klonopin. Is that not long enough? I thought the doses of both were pretty low so I thought 4 hours was enough time.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I was only given a couple of doses of Percocet, the doctor thought that the antibiotics and prednisolone would kick in after a day or 2 so I won't take pain meds again because it should be better tomorrow. I was unable to move my fingers yesterday, even though only one finger was bitten. My finger is still swollen and red but is not as painful tonight.

Thank you for replying back.

The effect of Percocet lasts for approximately 4-6 hours.

So, you have taken it before Klonopin 4 hours so it wouldn't affect it adversely so much.

You can take them with a gap.

You can take OTC Motrin safely with Klonopin.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.
Please avoid poor/bad rating.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
