I am taking clonazepam and alprazalom without problems, but to take clonzapam with diazepam (generic for valium), I don't know. I'm assuming a single doctor prescribed them to be used together. Dzoo's from this community is a pharmacist. He'd be able to answer whether taking them both poses any risk.
It is ok to take these two meds as there are no interactions, but my question is did the doctor prescribe one to be taken regularly while the other is to be taken only as needed? It seems a bit much to be taking two benzodiazepines.
I would discuss this further with your doctor and see just why he/she prescribed two of the same type drug. Maybe like I said one is to be taken only if the other is not working effectively.
Just my thoughts,
Michelle - it wouldn't hurt to run this question by the doctor again. They are human beings and do make mistakes. Perhaps he/she forgot you were on the other one, etc. Especially as it does seem excessive, along with your pain meds. Call in and ask, just to be on the safe side. I would hate for you to stop
Breathing - no, no one wants that! Take care - EJ
