Thanks for the question.

Lortab would cause increased sedation with klonopin.

it is a significant interaction.

It should only be done with your doctor's close monitoring.

Hi there

  • You should certainly discuss this with your doctor: you can take lortab if you can hold klonopin for few days. In most instances, both are taken as needed and so, temporary discontinuation is possible.
  • It is also likely to be safe to use both together as long as you clear this with your doctor, who knows you best. It also depends on how much klonopin and how often are you taking, AND how much Lortab and for how long you are planning to take it

Best wishes

You should not make these decisions on your own,and you should not hold the the konopin if you have been on it.

This can precipitate withdrawal.

This would be dangerous.
