Well, I suffer from cancer to my tongue, actually my tongue was removed and I'm receiving chemo once a week of Cetuximab/Avastin, but I have a terrrible pain in my body and also in my throat. I take Hydorcod/acetamino during the whole day and 3 tablets of lorazepam 1 mg. before going to bed, any advise?
Can I take lorazepam 1 mg. 1 hour after taking Hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5/500mg. (lortab)?

Dave, thank you very much for your answer, you really help me a lot, now what I forgot to ask was: I take 2 Tbsp. (30 ml) of Hydrocodone every 3 hrs. Can I take 2 Tablets of Lorazepam 1 mg. also? Or please tell me the dosis I should take in order to control my pain

Yes, you can take it as you need it. Once you are used to these meds then you can take them as you need them. When you feel pain coming on then you take a hydrocodone. Same with anxiety, you take a lorazepam. Lorazepam will also help you relax and let the painkiller do it's job, so taking two together wouldn't be a bad idea if the pain is particularly bad... Good luck... Dave
