I went to a Orthopedic doctor today and he told me to take Medrol, Maloxicam, and Robaxin, three different drugs, are these three drugs safe to take together, also if I take them should I not operate a vehicle or go to work!?
Medrol is a short term steroid for inflammation, Meloxicam is an non steroidal anti-inflammatory and Robaxin is a muscle relaxant. The Robaxin may make you sleepy so you may only want to take that at home until you see how you do with it. These drugs are okay to take together but the two anti-inflammatory drugs can be hard on your stomach so you'll want to take them with food or milk and watch for signs and symptoms of increased bleeding, especially bloody or tar like stools, and abdominal pain which can indicate bleeding in your GI tract. None of these drugs are controlled substances or considered to be "narcotics".
