What is the recommended dose of cymbalta (duloxetine) for Chronic joint pain/anxiety? Is it safe to take 50mgs of tramadol 3x a day with 20mg cymbalta (duloxetine)?

Could cause problems: Pain medications and medications used in chronic pain treatment may have significant drug-drug and drug-disease interactions. Use these medications only under the careful guidance of a physician. There is no one dose that fits every person.

50mg tramadol isn't giving me relief at all for fibromyalgia or behcets joint pain. Any other pain med recommendations?

50mg tramadol isn't giving me relief at all for fibromyalgia or behcets joint pain. Any other pain med recommendations?

See details: First of all, your doctor has to try to determine whether the pain is related to fm or to behcet's. I agree fibromyalgia pain should be treated with meds such as cymbalta, gabapentin, Lyrica or savella (milnacipran). Behcet's induced arthritic pain will respond to other approaches including prednisone, Methotrexate or tnf agents. ...Read more

Is it ok to take ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) for joint pain from sjogren's?

Is it ok to take ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) for joint pain from sjogren's?

Sure: Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) is a combo of tramadol and acetaminophen. It can be helpful for pain, but is not a great anti-inflammatory so you may choose to pair it up with an NSAID for better effect. The one thing you need to worry about ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) is that it can cause seizures and has been linked with serotonin syndrome with usage of other anti-depressant medications. Consider speaking about this your doctor. ...Read more

I take 400 mg ibuprofin daily for joint pain. Can that be the cause of sgpt level of 48 ul?

That being stated, repeat in four weeks! you may have had a mild hepatotrophic virus! if still elevated, stop ibuprophen and retest! there are many other nsaids for arthritis! ...Read more
