In reply to benzos and painkillers -- advice needed, posted by ayuda on March 25, 2003, at 16:03:34

I had no problem taking Vicoprofen (ibuprofen plus hydrocodone) together with Klonopin and sometimes Xanax too, when I had a tooth problem a few months ago. I asked the dentist in advance about the combo, and she said it should be fine; just advised me to watch out for drowsiness, especially when driving.

I was on a low dose of each, though, and some prescribing info sites suggest that benzos and opioids can potentiate each other re: sedation and central nervous system depression. I'd start with a low dose of painkillers first if possible (when you don't have to drive or do anything sensitive) and see how you react. And, of course, ask your doctor if you haven't already.

I did sleep well on the combo, although (sadly?) had no euphoria.
