the pain med is oxycodone but I took my last dosage this morning at 10 o'clock I would like to start my lorazepam back up this evening and can't get my doctor on the phone to see if that is ok. Can someone tell me if it is safe to start taking my lorazepam again at 5 o'clock this evening. My dosage is 1mg in the evening and 1mg in the morning.
Since you cant get your Dr on the phone, you might want to try your pharmacist. They are experts in knowing how long drugs last in the body and the chemical components to the drugs and how they act on the body. I would say that you might want to wait for 24 hours for the drug to be out of your system and maybe wait to take your first dose of Lorazepam in the AM but call the pharmacist to double check with him/her.
Unless you are extremely sensitive to medication side effects then there is no issue with taking those two medications together. If you were advised by your doctor to stop taking the Lorazepam while you were on Oxycodone then you need to wait to get ahold of them before you start taking that medication again, if not then absolutely call the pharmacy just to double check that it is okay to restart your other medication. Good luck and best wishes.
