Don't know: Tramadol is pregnancy category C, which means there are no human studies to know if it causes fetal harm. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safer for baby, but more harmful for your liver if you take large doses for long periods of time.

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. For hip pain an anti-inflammatory is better, i.e. Motrin ...Read more
Use caution: Tramadol is used for post operative pain. This medication has a pregnancy risk of c in the insert of the medication. That means that the absolute safety of this medication in pregnant women is unknown. Ibuprofen has a better rating except in the 3rd trimester. You may want to talk about this with your dentist. If you feel like you don't or won't need pain med then don't take any. ...Read more
Yes: Midol has Acetaminophen in it, which will not interact or overlap with tramadol. It also has caffeine and an antihistamine, which also should not bother you with taking tramadol. Since it is the first time you are combining the medications, I would recommend you avoid driving (if you have your permit) or doing anything dangerous in case it makes you groggy, but there are no interactions. ...Read more
Safe to take: There is not really any direct interaction between Concerta and tramadol. There is a slight decrease in the seizure threshold with low dose tramadol and Concerta may in very rare instances promote a seizure so the combination would not be the best in someone with a seizure disorder. The changes of a bad outcome with the combination of these medications is extraordinarily rare. Stay safe! ...Read more

It's difficult to tell as I don't know your other medications you are on and if you have other medical conditions as stomach, kidney or liver disease.
Treatment of pain usually start by using paracetamol then a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug as diclofenac or ibuprofen (provided you don't have contraindications)
