Sedative effect: Will be additive. Best to alternate them.

Yes: Tramadol and hydrocodone are opioids. However, you can use them together. Please don't drive or operate machines while taking them. Also, please follow your doctor instruction.

I would not: There is no reason to take two short acting medicines. I would take one or the other. If you have had pain for a long time, i would talk a long acting medicine.

In theory: In theory it probably can - however i would not suggest going above the maxim dosage of 100mg every 6 hours - it can be dangerous!

As prescribed by MD: Any narcotic combination should only be taken as prescribed by md. The safety of the combination depends on the reason for taking it, dose, and health status of the patient.
