on monday, i had an umbilical hernia operation. they prescribed me percocet 325 mg every 4 hours.
i am bi polar and recieve from another doctor who i also can't get to call me back, gabitral and restoril, 30 mg at bedtime. well, no one gave me instructions for whether or not i can mix these drugs, so to be safe, i have only been taking the pain meds, but i haven't slept in 2 days without the restoril. :!: i'm exhausted and have left numerous messages since yesterday for my doctor, but he never has called me back since yesterday.
my question is this. can i take my restoril along with the percocet? without the percocet, my pain is about a 9 1/2. without the restoril, i haven't slept since monday. help! firstname.lastname@example.org thank you.

Temazepam (Restoril) is a benzodiazipine it can potentiate the CNS depressant effect of narcotic analgesics such as percocet. If the two were to be taken together you would have to do that under your doctor's supervision.
