Hi Stephanie


Are these prescribed medications?  Is there a reason you want to take these together?


On this drug site they indicate that there can be a moderate adverse interaction between these two substances.  This combo can affect your respiratory system.  The danger for people who abuse both of these substances can result in death. 


Make sure you are under a doctor's care and guidance if for whatever reason, you are taking these two drugs together.


Thank you for your question.

Absolutely NOT! Never take a Benzo with Lortab, hydrocodone, methadone etc.  It is a deadly combination
