ZocdocAnswersAre percocet and chlorzoxazon safe to take together?

Question

Can you help me with this info please.

Answer

Drug interactions are always of concern to both patients and doctors. Indeed, polypharmacy (the doctor term for prescribing large numbers of medications to patients) can be the cause of new medical problems, even as it helps to address the initial concern. It is also always a good idea to discuss your concerns for interactions with the prescribing physician as well as your pharmacist, just to make sure that you will not run into any new issues. Fortunately, there are a large number of on-line resources available to help you as well, so that you personally can be a third safety net in making sure that there are no interactions. To answer your question, a quick search of those 2 drugs shows that both can have some effect as depressants of your central nervous system. In most people, that would make them feel more drowsy than usual, but should not be a problem otherwise. It would be important to not drive or operate heavy machinery while taking either or both of these drugs. It is important to note that these interactions are for most people, and if you feel that these drugs are affecting you negatively in any way, you should speak with your doctor who prescribed these medications soon.
