Ativan and Tylenol 2s/ Atasol 15s

Recommended Posts

So tomorrow i'm getting a root canal done. As you can probably assume, I am less than thrilled.

I had the tooth checked on tuesday to see what was wrong with it, and at this appointment I had forgotten my ativan. Nothing happened, and I could see the light shaking, my heart was pounding so hard.

I'm currently living on a script of tylenol 2's, which is basically acetaminoophen, caffiene, and codeine.

I'm wondering, can I take my ativan tomorrow with the tylenol 2? I don't think I can manage the appointment without both of them.

AidsMeds shows this interaction:

MONITOR: Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression. Ambulatory patients should be made aware of the possibility of additive CNS effects (e.g., drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, confusion) and counseled to avoid activities requiring mental alertness until they know how these agents affect them. Patients should also be advised to notify their physician if they experience excessive or prolonged CNS effects that interfere with their normal activities.

I've had the exact same warning on some of my meds. But definitely don't drive and ask a pro if you're concerned.
