Oxycodone / Kolonopin?

Question by Rob: Oxycodone / Kolonopin?
Can you take oxycodone and kolonopin together ? not sure if i spelled those right but yeah, i’m on both medication right now, one for pain and one for my anxiety attacks, am wondering if i can take both at the same time or will this cause problems???

Were both drugs legally prescribed by the same doctor or two doctors who know the medications you take?

If the answer is yes then you are fine.

As long as you take them EXACTLY as prescribed you are safe. The risk with mixing Klonopin (a benzodiazepine) and oxycodone (and opioid) is that large doses can be fatal. The two drugs synergize (I bet your pain will be lower when on the Klonopin and Oxycodone) so it is easier to overdose on two medications rather than just one, especially Klonopin which typically requires well over 100,000 mg to be lethal when taken alone.

It is very common for people with pain to take an opiod and benzodiazepine. Klonopin is actually a good medication to treat neuropathic pain and muscle spasms and a person might take Klonopin for pain.

I am in pain management with chronic pain and I take opioids and benzodiazepines due to pain and panic disorder. The important thing is to never take too much, never stop either medication without talking with your doctor (both can cause physical dependency which is NOT addiction it just means the drugs have to be stopped slowly to avoid withdrawal). And both opioids and benzodiazepines are drugs with a potential for abuse so be cautious, especially if you have a history of addiction. But addiction do to legitimate use of these drugs is extremely rare.

    As long as you don’t take a larger that recommended dose. Both are relatively safe on there own but if you take them together at high dosages you could OD by mistake. Many people have died by combining these two drug in an attempt to get high.
