Does tramadol build up in your system and work better? Been prescribed 2-3 50 mg per day for nerve pain.

Male athlete with back pain. Have been on tramadol for 3 months and not working well. How would I go about a getting a different med prescribed?

Speaking to your doc: Easiest and most appropriate move in my opinion would be to allow the physician who initially prescribed the Tramadol to know what's going on and for them to guide you as to next steps. You should know that in many states Tramadol has recently been moved to a controlled substances status which means that your physician may wish to follow you more carefully if that's his choice for your pain. ...Read more

What to do if I have got prescribed tramadol 50mg HCl and only as needed can staff at my group home refuse to givelot more than nicotine right?

What to do if I have got prescribed tramadol 50mg HCl and only as needed can staff at my group home refuse to givelot more than nicotine right?

Don't understand?: If you are in a group home, the staff are required to give you medication as the doctor ordered it, but no more often than that. Tramadol can cause seizures even in high therapeutic doses (like 4 times a day), so they are perhaps being cautious. I don't know what you mean by the nicotine comment and what that has to do with the tramadol. Talk to your doctor and have him talk to the staff. ...Read more

I have back pain and prescribed 1 50 mg tramadol before bed, but it doesn't put a dent in the pain. Can I take them every so many hours at nite?

Tramadol: Tramadol can be taken several ways. You can take 1 tab every 4-6 hrs or you can take 2 tabs at once to see if it will help your pain. I would try your best not to over use the medication as you will run out too soon and your physician may not give you a refill. Please talk to your perscribing physican so that they are aware that your pain is not well controlled with your current prescription. ...Read more

I am currently on Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL and Lexapro and was prescribed Tramadol. Wanted to see if there was a bad interaction if taken together?

Requires Tact: Combination of SSRI such as Lexapro can apparently cause serotonin syndrome. In addition, the manufacturer of tramadol notes concomitant therapy with SSRI increases risk of seizures. Furthermore, both Tramadol and Wellbutrin (bupropion) can lower the seizure threshold. PGT testing to determine CYP2D6 status may be able to guide treatment. The prescribing physician (s) should be informed of this combination. ...Read more
