Hip Pain Flexeril Ultram
Currently in tx/lower back and hip pain (mostly on iliac crest) only flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and Ultram help-xr neg?
Limit treatment.: If that effective rx is effective, complete a 3-4 week course of treatment. However, if the problem does not resolve, have it further worked up beyond the xrays.

Tramadol & Concerta: Tramadol is an opioid with analgesic (pain blocking) & serotoninergic (mood altering) effects. Methylphenidate (Concerta) is an amphetamine and acts in the brain as well — essentially 'revving' things up. Having 2 drugs work in the brain could be a set-up for side-effects (SE), such as seizures -rare but serious SE when used in combination. For hip pain an anti-inflammatory is better, i.e. Motrin ...Read more
