I'm allergic to acethaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen, what can I take? The doctor prescribed tramadol but I'm scare to take it is it safe?

Safe, but: There's a low or moderate abuse potential, limited refills, needs Rx, interacts with many other drugs, needs to be tapered to discontinue use. It's kind of rare to have allergy to NSAIDs aspirin and acetaminophen together, many interpret Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) as allergic reaction (true allergic reaction) pls visit an allergist to decipher your reaction and don't deprive your self a chance,

Can I take aspirin while taking wellbutrin, (bupropion) lexapro, and occasional tramadol?

Can I take aspirin while taking wellbutrin, (bupropion) lexapro, and occasional tramadol?

Probably okay, but..: Interaction between Aspirin and Lexapro that inhibits the uptake of serotonin in platelets and therefore makes it more likely for there to be an upper G.I. Bleed associated with Aspirin use. There are also potentially significant interactions between Lexapro and wellbutrin (bupropion), (bupropion) Lexapro and tramadol, and wellbutrin (bupropion) and tramadol. Combination of medications should be monitored closely by your doctor.
