Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safer for baby, but more harmful for your liver if you take large doses for long periods of time. Less medicine is best while you're pregnant, so you'll have to determine if the headache is bad enough for medicine or not. ...Read more

I am wondering how long withdrawal will be for tramadol if I only took three. A day? I am also pregnant and am concerned for baby.

I am wondering how long withdrawal will be for tramadol if I only took three. A day? I am also pregnant and am concerned for baby.

Just an opinion: Consider not stopping. It is category c and has more than a pain control effect. It also, at 150 mg, an antidepressant of the snri class. Norepinephrine helps block ascending pain. It works like Cymbalta (duloxetine) in this way. Reports of tramadol problems in baby are few. You will not have narcotic w/d but stopping antidepressant may have sx's. 150mg is low dose and likely more helpful than harmful. ...Read more

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.
