I am sorry for the pain you must be experiencing.
I agree with you. Two benzos seems like a lot of medication. I can't imagine why they would have ordered the Ativan in addition to the Valium you are already taking. Wow, that's a lot!
I won't contradict your ER Physician's orders. However I highly suggest that you call your regular Pharmacist and discuss the new medications. Obviously you'll also want to contact your PCP. Oxycodone seems appropriate if you are not on another short acting opiate.
I hope you'll let us know the outcome. Please keep in touch.
Thanks for the advice i decided not to take the ativan and tot take it slow.
Thankyou guy's.... also
Is seizure a side effect of Flexeril? I am sorry to ask here.
Now I am just afraid of seizures! I posted on a epilepsy forum with no reply yet.
II have MS like symptoms and my therapist also thinks it may instead be a type of partial or absences. My son has them.
I know since I started the Lamictal I have had a huge decrease in my symptoms with mild returns. I use to shake and bite m tongue on oxy and the Lamictal has stopped that so far. I am afraid if I combined the Flexeril I am punting myself at risk for the full body shakes again and tongue biting. The oxy alone is not working for the pain I wouldnt have mind trying the Flexeril but I read seizure is a side effect? if it is I am a leery if it is not a side effect I am willing to try it. The info i find is contradicting....
Thanks again for any help on this last question on if Flexeril is a seizure risk!
I posted this question like a maniac I am glad to have a response. I am not sure how pharmacist are in other areas but in my lil area the pharmacist seem to know nothing. One Pharmacy gave me a different brand inside another brands bottle, Now I know that is usually not a big deal to some but to me it is cause some brands have ingredients im allergic too.
I also had a pharmacy (same one) Who said they carried a brand of epileptic med I wanted and showed me the pill and it was NOT the same brand but they were standing by it. I was very displeased. The first one I assumed mistake and let it go but the second one... why lie?
I am planning to switch pharmacy's now....
Again thankyou for your time I appreciate it!
