I am on 50 mg tramadol and 300 mg Neurontin (gabapentin) for bilateral ulnar nerve compression. And am still in pain. Is there a better medicine? (no narcotics)

Ulnar neuropathy: Actually the dose of Gabapentin you are taking is low. We routinely start low to prevent side effects then titrate slowly to higher doses. Target doses for my patients can go into the 3000 mg per day range. If this fails then other meds lyrica, (pregabalin) Cymbalta are worth trying. Also may be worth having an ulnar injection to reduce nerve irritation. ...Read more

I recently was prescribed tramadol for dental pain and my pharmacist told me that its a class 4 control substance. I thought it was a non-narcotic. Which is true?

I recently was prescribed tramadol for dental pain and my pharmacist told me that its a class 4 control substance. I thought it was a non-narcotic. Which is true?

Class IV some states: Tramadol is not a federally controlled substance but has been listed as a class IV controlled substance in some states. It does not have the same addictive potential as narcotic meds since it and its metabolite work as a centrally acting analgesic primarily on the mu-receptors. While a very effective analgesic, it's not recommended by the manufacturer as a substitute for the narcotic addict. ...Read more

Concerned: Mixing several types of antidepressants with TCA (nortriptalime) has potential for some serous side effects.

That is the reason why you need to be careful with taking it especially if you have a long term or chronic condition requiring pain control. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

I am prescribed Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) for my chronic pain. I take 3 tablets per day. Since, this medication is not a narcotic, will it cause me constipation?

I am prescribed Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) for my chronic pain. I take 3 tablets per day. Since this is not a narcotic, will this medication/dosage cause constipation?

Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen): While Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) is technically NOT a narcotic, it is what they call an "opiate analog." This means it works similarly to opiates (or narcotics) in treating pain, but doesn't have a lot of the undesirable effects, like dependence, loss of judgment, etc. However, it CAN cause constipation. Now, only 3 per day is low, and if you take a laxative or stool softener while using it, you should be fine. ...Read more

Why do some of your doctors say it’s ok to take tramadol and fluoxetine together - and some don’t?

Why do some of your doctors say it’s ok to take tramadol and fluoxetine together - and some don’t?

Serotonin syndrome: Tramadol has SNRI properties, so it is serotonergic. When combined with other serotonergic meds like fluoxetine, there is potential for serotonin syndrome. Depends on the doses, really, and the individual's tolerance to serotonergic agents. Some docs are more comfortable than other co-prescribing serotonergic drugs. I've safely co-prescribed these, but I've always been vigilant about monitoring. ...Read more

Is tramadol habit forming/addicting?

Yes: People can get addicted to tramadol, psychologically and physiologically. It isn't quite the same as opiates like Demerol, (meperidine hydrochloride) Percocet, Morphine, heroin, etc. But requires caution. However, when pain medications are used properly under the care of a responsible doc, with someone without a predisposition to addiction, people generally don't get addicted. SAMSHA has additional information. ...Read more
