Question: my question is this: I am taking Klonopin for panic disorder but im down to about only .25mg a day. I also am a alcholic but have cut down to only three beers a day. I have terrible TMJ currently and would really like to incorporate my 5mg of flexeril for it i have prescribed. but is it safe or is there a safe way to time or juggle the .25mg of klonopin, three beers, and the 5mg of flexeril safely or not adviseable? interactions?

also currently taking 875mg Augmentin for like two more days for sinus infection and take Allegra for seasonal allergies as needed. thanks for your help

Brief Answer:
Mild interactions between klonopin and flexeril.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

There is a moderate interaction between klonopin and flexeril. You may experience symptoms of dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Also you may experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you.
These are possible effects but you may not experience these at all.
I can suggest you to take them both and see if you experience them or your body tolerates them well. I can recommend you not to take alcohol.
Meanwhile there is no interactions between augmentine, allegra and flexeril and klonopin.
So you can safely continue augmentine and allegra.
Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
