Should I be at work whilst taking tramadol and amitriptyline?

Should I be at work whilst taking tramadol and amitriptyline?

Depends, probably not: It depends on how long you have been taking each medication and what you do for a living. The safest answer is no, because both can cause sedation and lead to occupational hazards.

Not Safe!: It is never safe to combine these medications. Talk to your doctor about your insomnia. You need a careful evaluation in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Taking tramadol 50mg, elavil (amitriptyline) 10mg both twice daily for radiculopathy pain/burning. Still constantly in pain. What else can I do/ask dr to give/incr?

Many options.: I would start with a good once a day non steroidal ant-inflammatory such as indomethacin. Could increase either elavil or tramadol although there is a potential interaction between tramadol and effexor (venlafaxine). Gabapentin or pregabalin is an option. Sometimes a muscle relaxant such as methocarbamol or cyclobenzaprine is helpful. ...Read more

Does Amitriptyline, venlafaxine and tramadol all work in different ways on neuropathic pain?

Does Amitriptyline, venlafaxine and tramadol all work in different ways on neuropathic pain?

Neuropathic pain: Responds to many different agents. Its important that the treatment not exacerbate (amitriptyline) nor end up being worse for you (tramadol) than the disease / condition. Serotonergic syndrome and seizures can occur with Ultram. Elavil will cause anticholinergic symptoms and may actually worsen some types of neuropathy. Venlafaxine may help but it is not a top choice in my practice. ...Read more

Is a combination of meds like tramadol, amitriptyline and Zoloft (sertraline) better for controlling nerve pain than one of the meds alone?

Depends: Presumably you're working with a neurologist or pain management specialist for neuropathic pain treatment. If not, you should see one.

My Dr prescribed me tramadol and flexarol, at bedtime I have pills I take daily as wel (elavil&mavik). Last night I was very lightheaded and felt sick.

Sedating medications: Elavil (amitriptylene), tramadol, and Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) are all sedating and if taken together in someone who's not used to them could indeed make you feel ill. The Mavik (trandolapril) is a blood pressure medication which is not sedating and is not culpable here. Both tramadol and Flexeril are as-needed meds, so it is safe to reduce your own dose of these by dividing the tablets and taking 1/2. ...Read more
