Can Valium and Robaxin be taken together?

My Dr. Has increased m dosage of clonazepam from 2mgs daily to 8 mgs daily! I have been on this drug since a TBI in 2001- My NY Drs were weaning me off it, but since I had to move to Fl. to care for my now deceased father since my momma was killed in a car accident I am now on such a high dose it scares me, I do not want to go through horrifying withdrawal . I feel normal on this drug, but when I try to stop, I can t speak, cry, etc...My new Dr. doesn t seem concerned w/ this, says everybody has to be on something always sooner or later- He is very elderly & I am terrified (he only practices one day week) if he retires I will die from grand mal seizures or simply lose my mind if another Dr .refuses to prescribe. I asked him to help me get to a lower dosage & he said Are you ready? then suggested I try to do it myself, but I can t, I get weepy etc... when I do (try to lower dose). My Momma was killed in horrible car wreck, I took care of my Dadddy w/ Parkinsons & he just passed away so my Dr. seems to think I need this high dose. He put me on 10mgs Valium quid for a month but I hated it . I have been trying to take care of horse farm alone now, sore all the time, have some left over Robaxin from car wreck I was in 2 days after Daddy died- Can I take them together w/out bad effects? My muscles are so sore- How do I get off this benzo? I feel like I am Klonipin s slave- pleeeease help. Thank you, God Bless-

Hello,

As per your doctor's advice you can take both without any side effects at all but if you feel more sleepy or tired then consult with your treating doctor to adjust the dose so a close observation is required while taking both at a time.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Uday Nath Sahoo

i have SEVER muscle pain in lower back the muscle spasms or freezes for a few seconds every step or to. I have had sciatica for the past 32 yrs I have been off work for 13 mths just went back wed 12hr nights in health care, very strenuous job and the pain is unexplainable. I took 2 Tylenol 3 just before going in then about 2 hrs later a robaxin 750mg and nothing. I held in there for 4 hrs I don t know how, got replaced and left. To sit down after the first 3 hrs was so hard to do, it made it easier to walk out to the car. I need something better than this, I have to be able to perform my duties pain free. I have taken medication my whole life due to migraines, have been on every medication, therefore most medications I take are not low dosages, then I become afraid to take them because I don t want to become addicted to anything. I only take pills when l am in severe pain, maybe that s the problem. I need to know what medication I can try what l can do before my next shift in a few days. Thank you

Is it okay to take valium and zubsolv together? I read on-line that they are both often prescribed together because zubsolv adds to anxiety! I just wish to show my doctor proof of this since I am currently prescribed a low dosage of valium and was prescribed zubsolv by another doctor, and took both for a while and had no bad side effects. Zubsolv makes me speedy and sometimes anxious and the valium helped when I was really shaken up!

Hello, I took a bad fall on my back 48 hours ago. Didn't get to er for 10 hours. Emergency room diagnosed muscle spasms and prescribed 500 mg robaxin up to 3 x a day for pain with up to 8 ibupropgin/day. Worked well for 1day and now I feel no difference at all when I take it. Pain is getting worse. Pretty difficult to get out of chair or bed, unable to lift of open anything with right hand, pain/pressure on deep breathing, and coughing. Should I go back to er?
