There should be no problem with this, I have been on both in the past and have had nothing severe take place other than one really good sleep, however never overdue it, take as prescribed, try and stay away from alcohol which of course intensifies this effect, alot of caffeine and don't do anything considered dangerous which is considered like that of driving which should be a no, operating machines and so on until you know how it effects you personally... some have high tolerances, some low... with both of these types of meds you really should not need any over the counter medications, especially cough and flu, very dangerous... be careful of that... blaze22
Do be careful and not take more than prescribed. The following warning exists for these two drugs in combination:
Interactions between your selected drugs
diazepam ↔ hydrocodone
Applies to: Valium (diazepam), Vicodin (acetaminophen/hydrocodone)
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 counseled to avoid hazardous activities requiring mental alertness and motor coordination until they know how these agents affect them, and to notify their physician if they experience excessive or prolonged CNS effects that interfere with their normal activities.
CNS stands for central nervous system, just in case you didn't know.
Hope this helps,
