I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Can Lexapro, Alprazolam, Oxycodone, Codeine and Zyprexa be taken together?

I take Lexapro 30mg alprazolam 0.5mg and zyprexa 2.5mg for treatment of anxiety and depression. I had breast augmentation yesterday and the surgeon prescribed oxycodone 5mg and codeine for pain management. Also prescribed ondansetrom 4mg for nausea. My surgeon is aware of my prior medications and I m concerned about any drug interactions. Is it safe to take these medications together?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You can take your routine drugs with Oxycodone and Ondansetron as no drug interactions exist among them. They don’t alter the efficacy of each other. You can add antacids like Omeprazole or Pantoprazole to avoid gastritis.

Wishing you good health.

Regards,

I am very cautious about taking any type of med. is it safe to take guaifensin and codeine cough syrup since I take .25 alprazolam 3 times daily? How about benzonatate cough pills. I have been taking the prescribed z pack antibiotic but not the others after reading patient reviews.

I recently had to go back on Dilaudid 4mg. I have an extreme tolerance and I can take that up to three times a day. I can function normally after taking. I had to take one right now because my pain is too out of control. I m also having a breakdown and I need to take my Zyprexa. If the main concern is extra drowsiness I m not worried about that. Just was looking for major interactions. I don t remember my doctor stating to avoid taking them together.
