Can You Take Remeron If You Are On Percocet

Answer

Hi there

I would strongly suggest that you do not mix these drugs unless you get an okay from your doctor. It seems that Remeron is going to increase the sedating effects you get from being on Percocet.

From this medical web site they warn:

"DRUG INTERACTIONS: Mirtazapine adds to the sedating effects of alcohol and other drugs that can cause sedation such as the benzodiazepine class of anti-anxiety drugs (e.g., Valium, Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax), the narcotic class of pain medications and its derivatives (e.g., Percocet, Vicodin, Dilaudid, Codeine, Darvon), the tricyclic class of antidepressants (e.g., Elavil, Tofranil, Norpramin), certain antihypertensive medications (e.g., Catapres, Inderal), and some antihistamines (e.g., Benadryl; Atarax; Vistaril)."

Please talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
