What is the best combo. Tramadol with Lyrica (pregabalin) or Tapentadol with Lyrica (pregabalin) ?
Check with your DOC: tapentadol has some serious interaction with effexor (venlafaxine) a medicine you are taking.but tramadol has the same interaction. tapentadol has more addiction potential than tramadol. both have dose adjustment in case of renal and hepatic impairment.same as tramadol. the final world is really to the physician who is willing to prescribed it. ...Read more
What is an alternative medication Klonopin, (clonazepam) could Valium be substituted, contraindications with Fetzima?
Alternative: If another medication in this class (benzodiazepines) is being sought, it may depend on the reason why you need to come off Klonopin (clonazepam). Valium has many break down products & is not always a great addition if medical problems. Ativan/lorazepam unlikely to have negative impact on the liver (unlike some of the others) but is relatively short acting. Please additional information on reason. Thanks! ...Read more
Is tramadol an opiate? Can it be used in conjunction, properly with norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)?
Yes..yes...but: Tramadol is an opiate and can be used with norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). Tramadol can be addicting but less so than Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) (hydrocodone). In treating pain, i tend to prefer tramadol to Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) actually. There are many non-opioid treatments of pain that are not addicting at all. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes with caution: I would talk with the prescribing physician and review the specific regimen intended. The tramadol may be acting as a way of reducing the reliance on the relatively higher strength Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) i hope. Additionally, the Lorazepam has a capacity for producing respiratory suppression and could be dangerous in the context of too many opioid therapies being administered simultaneously. Stay safe! ...Read more
Possible, yes: I have seen some physicians use Nucynta (tapentadol) for the long acting medication and Percocet for breakthrough, but this needs to be very closely monitored. I would recommend you discuss with your physician increasing your Nucynta (tapentadol) if you are constantly needing short acting breakthrough meds. ...Read more
Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) for fibromyalgia use is being discontinued by Rx provider. Suggesting gabapentin instead. I'm reading that gabapentin is not as effective anW?
Gabapentin is useful: Many patients with fibromyalgia have been found to have small fiber neuropathy, which is pain or numbness involving the nerves. There is thought there may be some association, although it is theoretical. Gabapentin, a medication very effective for nerve pain, can be useful in patients with fibromyalgia. ...Read more

Not unusual: There are several categories of medications that are used for the treatment of chronic pain.

What is the strongest med.: percocet, fentanyl patch, dilaudid, or norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)?
Yes and No: Zofran can cause palipitations and cardiac arrhythmias. Taking a combination of medications always requires caution.

Diagnosed with occipital nueralga, prescribed norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain, also taking clonazepam 1mg. Is it safe to take together or spaced apart?
Depends on tolerance: And on how many norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). Starting doses of Clonazepam are in the 0.25- 0.5 mg range, so 1 mg is a hefty dose for this very potent drug. It takes Klonopin about 2 hours to peak, and hydrocodone peaks in an hour or less, so i would time the doses to not have the peaks overlap. There are effective drugs for neuropathic pain (like gabapentin, pregabilin, antidepressants) that don't get you "hooked.". ...Read more
