If I took a tramadol 100 mg at 3pm today if pain not better could I take hydrocodone 10mg at 11pm!!! Been hurting really bad today!!! ?

Yes, you can, but: Combining the 2 defeats the purpose of each drug's usage. Tramadol is a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain. Although it binds to mu receptors, tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic. Hydrocodone is a Schedule II opiate, and as such has many side effects that Tramadol doesn't. Adjust your medication with your physician. ...Read more

Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Controversial: There are studies on both sides of this issue, with some researchers finding that tramadol did reduce withdrawal, while others finding that it either did very little, or in some cases actually made it worse. A problem is that doses of ultram in the therapeutic range (300-400 mg/day) can cause seizures. My patients have told me mostly that ultram did very little for them, but a few got + results. ...Read more

I've been on hydrocodone 30 to 40 mg a day for 3 years. Dr put me on tramadol. Only taking it to avoid withdrawls. Is this smart? For a few days?

Good plan: From all I've heard this is a good plan to follow. Leaving the hydrocodone in the dust can be hard and tramadol has proven very helpful. Some say they didn't notice any thing missing. Then, if your doctor helps you plan the tramadol ending, it should go well. Plan that so it goes well. Try not to be scared. That may make it harder. Have confidence. Many have success using this strategy. Best! ...Read more

I'm still hurting really bad I take hydrocodone 10/325 qid. Tramadol 2 qid, baclofen 10 qid. It's knee & back from a mva 7yrs ago. What else can I do?

I'm still hurting really bad I take hydrocodone 10/325 qid. Tramadol 2 qid, baclofen 10 qid. It's knee & back from a mva 7yrs ago. What else can I do?

Depends on the pain: 1st, I agree, the pain meds increase the pain. Next, I will assume (sorry) you have reduced your activity since the mva. There may still be some back or knee damage but, more likely, what you feel is soft tissue imbalance (basic deconditioning) you developed when resting when hurt. Your original pain resolved in a month or so, now you feel pain from imbalance in strength ; flexibility. ...Read more
