Yes; doses above 5 mg can be prescribed. Do not take a dose larger than prescribed, or while taking other depressants (such as alcohol).

Yes, Ativan can be taken with morphine. The combination of these two drugs can cause increased dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating

No you do not want to take two depressant medications together.

No you do not want to take two medications that make you drowsy at the same time.

I'm not a medical professional, but I have taken Ativan and hydrocodone together many times as they were prescribed to me. My psychiatrist prescribed the Ativan to me and knew I was taking hydrocodone for recent surgeries. I rarely take the two at the same time, but when I have in the past the most I ever took was 20mg of the hydrocodone with 2mg of Ativan. Hope this helps!

Taking Xanax and Ativan together is absolutely UNSAFE. They are both in a class of drugs called Benzodiazepines. The main difference in the two is that Ativan is longer lasting than Xanax. I am no Doctor, but I would advise strongly against taking these two drugs together.

Yes. The two meds have no known dangerous interactions.

While the official stance is that the two drugs can be taken together, you might not want to. COX 2 drugs such as naproxen can block the action of Ativan, which can cause you to have withdrawal symptoms.

Yes, benzo's are a very safe compound it would take a very large amount to get to lethal levels.

These two drugs are VERY similar. Xanax is about twice as potent as Ativan and is longer-acting.

Not unless explicitly directed to by a physician. Mixing these two can lead to some terrible unintended side-effects.

Yes. They have no interaction between each other. Combining the two would cause increased sedation and drowsiness.

A person should not mix Ativan and Xanax. This is because the two drugs work with the body in the same way and could cause an overdose.

i was hoping someone would respond to this question are there any people out there that are taking these two meds together?

The two can usually be taken together, but side effects such as drowsiness and difficult concentrating can be intensified. Check with your doctor to make sure that the two drugs are a good combination for you.

Both medications are benzodiazepines. The only real difference between the two is that Ativan is a quicker and shorter acting medication than oxazepam.

Yes, if your doctor prescribes both. There are no listed adverse drug interactions for this combination, though you will likely feel quite sleepy, which is probably what you want if you take those two together.

According to there is no danger or conflict between these two drugs

two babies can be born at once, and if this happens the mother will usually abondoned one because she can not take care of two at once

Yes you can. I take the two together. You have to be sure to take ativan ONLY when you really need it,until the celexa kicks in. I love it when I really need it. No adverse reactions. Take as directed and realize that it is HIGHLY addictive if you take it everyday in large doses. Be cautious and talk to your doctor.

Ativan is in the same family as Valium. They are both Benzodiazepines. Ativan is about 10 times stronger in terms of DOSE than Valium. They are two different chemicals but have similar effects. Some make you sleepier, and some work more at anxiety. I think Ativan is better than Valium at reducing anxiety but Valium makes you sleepier. But they are both similar so you probably won't notice the difference.

Two, if you take more you make a poopy in your pants.

Yes. I take eight different pills at once

I had to take ativan sporadically during my pregnancy for a severe anxiety disorder. My doctor specialized in pregnant women and those sorts of medications and he said while it says on the pill bottle its harmful, after 20 or 30 yrs of study is has proved to be harmless in small to moderate amounts during pregnancy. (I.E not high doses every day) My baby was born healthy.

It takes an average of two weeks, but has once been recorded as to take upto two years.

Once she starts it could take up to two hours per pup.
