I take 150mg bupropion three times a day for depression.
Along with 10mg methylphenidate three times a day.
Occasionally I used 1-3 darvocet up to three days a months for menstrual cramps.
However, I realized that what I thought were 3 darvocet turned out to be 2 vicodin and one darvocet.
My doctor knows of these drugs, of course, because she prescribed them. But the vicodin prescription was from a past surgery and I was unaware that they were even in my painkiller container. I am aware that I must use my bupropion/methylphenidate/darvocet mixture with extreme caution, but now that I accidentally introduced a 4th medication today, I am worried about the possible interaction. Please let me know if I need to contact a professional immediately or if this is an okay mistake on my part.

There should be no serious concern here and being cautious overall is the most important thing. Darvocet is milder but the action is similar to Vicodan. In the future, I would recommend the original plan but don't worry about the past error.
