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

Meprobamate is medication used for anxiety. It is possible that it may interact with some medications but you would need to cross check against any other medications that you might be using.

There are drug interaction checkers available online that you can put in all your medications to see if there are any issues.

I hope this helps

Need help! I have been taking 282 Mep for the last 25yrs due to chronic pain from car accident and migraines. This drug contains meprobamate and can no longer be sold in Canada. Now what do I do?? II need a replacement for this medication. The aspirin (325mg.) and the caffeine (15mg.) and the codeine (15mg.) shouldn t be a problem I would think, but what would you suggest as a replacement for the Meprobamate? I m going to need something that is going to replace the muscle relaxant. Can you tell me what you think about this? Will it be possible to get another prescription with all 4 ingredients in it? I still have some of my 282mep left--- will I need to transition onto something else or would I finish these up and start a new prescription? I would appreciate your opinion! Thank you for the work you are doing on this site.

I took miltowns or meprobamate for forty years for panic attacks which I get from an irregular heart beat. They put me on serex which does not help much. I would like to try Ativan to see if I get better response from that. Do you think the ad Ivan is better than serex
