Customer Question
Hello I was prescribed Ativan...
Hello I was prescribed Ativan for my anxiety and have been also prescribed hydrocodone 5mg for my scoliosis spinal fusion back pain. This morning I took my anxiety Ativan 1.5mg and then one hour ago took one hydrocodone to help relieve my back pain. I don't know if I should have taken both the same day or if I should seek medical help. Please help.

Hi, thanks for the question. It is safe to take alprazolam and hydrocodone together. The most important thing when the two drugs are combined is that the total dose not be high because the side effects of both drugs are additives. Meaning, when combined, it might lead to overdose.

If you been taking the two doses before, you should be fine.

What is a high dose? I'm really worried right now. Should I go to ER?
Pharmacist: Drugdad, Pharmacist replied 3 years ago
The dose you are taking it is not that high. High doses for alprazolam can be double what you are taking now.

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!!
