Mixing Pain Medications
I am already taking Clonidine for blood pressure and had dental work done today and have a prescription for Hydrocodone and need to know if these are safe to take together.
It should be safe to take both medications. Some people, however, may experience more drowsiness with the combination of both drugs.
