Neuroma in foot and bunion removal

Answer

According to a Drug Interactions Checker on Drugs.com these two drugs have a 'moderate' interaction when taken together. This is because both depress central nervous system and respiratory system activity. One symptom of respiratory system depresson is shortness of breath upon exertion. You could also experience problems with coordination, drowsiness, etc.

MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression. Ambulatory patients should be counseled to avoid hazardous activities requiring mental alertness and motor coordination until they know how these agents affect them, and to notify their physician if they experience excessive or prolonged CNS effects that interfere with their normal activities.

The Drugs.com site states that other interactions could occur and you should check with your physician or pharmacist. Only take medications that have been prescribed by your physician. Good luck!
