  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Crystal on Mar, 16, 2010:

    I am 43 years old and take 2-4 mg or lorazepam per day 5 -10 mg of requip per day, just started temazepam today 15 mg but only took half and I am supposed to be taking effexor 37.5 mg per day, and oxycocet/325acetaminophen 2 per day. How will these drugs interract and should i stop taking any of them. Pretty sure the effexor is messing up my sex drive haven't really been taking regularly but need the numb feelings it creates been under a lot of stress lately. I take the percs for pain and get nerve blockage injuections onece per week in neck back, and shoulder. I just started the temazepam because i am having some difficulty sleepihng and taking too may lorazepam to compensate. Have messed up sleep patterns and sleep paralysis problems, Is it possible these meds are interacting and causing my sleeep difficulties?

    Sincerely,

    CRystal King
