    I am in no way qualified to answer your question, but I'm pretty sure Morphine can cause breathing and/or heart issues. Maybe you should contact your doctor as soon as possible if you are having problems.

      Stormy, the answer is definitely yes! Both of those medications can suppress respiration; combining the two increase the risk that your breathing could slow so much that you asphyxiate.

        Indeed they can. I can't find the link but apparently this is a bigger problem with methadone because it stays in your system a lot longer.

          Virtually all opioids (natural or artificial) have the ability to suppress respirations, and in overdose, the most common cause of death is the person stops breathing.

          This can also be the case with sedatives such as Xanax, Valium, Ativan, and other drugs in this class. Mixing alcohol with these drugs can make respiratory suppression much more likely, even in small doses.

              Why do you ask? I saw your thread in the Life forum.

                Anything mixed w/ xanax can kill you. That shit is lethal. I lost another friend last week.

                Too bad, it's a useful drug. But it makes ppl forgetful and they take more. PPL need to get their dosage out and lock the rest up. It's a Rx drug holocaust. Accidental od's outpaced car wrecks for accidental deaths in the US some years ago.

                  With the cocktail of drugs I take, I had them get me a pill box with the days of the week....and one for morning and one for the afternoon. This way I know just by looking at what's left if I've taken the drugs when I should. I did'nt want one of the darned things at first.....but have come to like using it a lot. Before if I was'nt sure if I had taken my meds.....I skipped it so I would'nt OD. Now I know for sure.......

                          Although i use opiods and benzo's as a safety measure i have cut my benzo's back to the smallest possible effective doses which right now are 0.5 MG Clonazepam twice a day and Temazepam 15 mg HS, my Doctor is quite amazed at the slim dose of Clonazepam i take.
