Question

Can you take Soma, Perecet, and Valium together ?

I had a spinal block today and was prescribed Perecet for pain, Soma for sleep, Ambein for sleep and Valium

Answer

This does sound like a large dose of different medications that may interact with each other, or at least have some of the same or similar effects. This is why it is important to work with your doctor, however, as this may quite well be the appropriate therapy for you to help you get back on your feet more quickly. While each of these can cause some of the same side effects, each works in a different way and leads to different results. Together, they may be what works best for you. As always, when you have different questions about medications that you have been prescribed, you should speak with the prescribing doctor, as he or she will then be able to help you with your questions. You should not take additional medications that have not been prescribed to you, and you should let your doctor know of any other medications that you may be taking at the same time so that your doctor doesn't prescribe duplicates or medications that could interact with each other. Soma and Valium are often used for back pain, as are percocet. Ambien can also be very effective. Please speak with your doctor about your question.
