My Doctor has me on Klonopin 1mg . time's 2 daily . Also Along with Oxycotin 20mg prn. I have seen so many scary video's and people's statement's about mixing the two med's ( I wonder if im having a Panic Attack by reading these statement's and watching these Video's ) That Im Scared too take Both together ... And my Doctor wrote it out for me ...
Hey Alan: I take three times as much Oxy as you do, and breakthough meds too. I can also take up to three mg. of klonopin and two mg. of Xanax if I need. I usually don't. The scary thing is I still can't sleep, and I'm not even dopy taking them all!! You told sweetlemon that Xanax is different from Klonopin, but they are basically the same. It just is a matter of how quickly they act, (Xanax having a very short half life of four to six hours, and Klonopin having a half life of 18 hours. Also in the benzodiazepine family is Ativan, and Valium, etc. They all are quicker, stronger, shorter acting, longer acting, etc. Hope that this answers your questions.
Interactions between your selected drugs
clonazepam ↔ oxycodone
Applies to: Klonopin (clonazepam), OxyContin (oxycodone)
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.
