Safe Ultram Pain Disease
I take Ultram for fibro, Zoloft and Xanax (alprazolam) for panic anxiety disorder, and a Ambien at night for sleep is this a safe combo?

I am on a fentanyl patch to control my pain I have fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease. I forgot this morning, took Ultram twice 100 mg, I am naseous.?
Nausea: Nausea can be a symptom of opiate withdrawal, but you are wearing your fentanyl patch. Nausea is also a common side effect of ultram. It's possible that this is the result of the inadvertent double dose of ultram you gave yourself, rather than opiate withdrawal. I suggest contacting your physician, and also creating a way to consistently keep track of the pills you take each day. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have never had addiction problems (58 years). Just prescribed Ultram for significant arthritis pain. Is Ultram safe to use?
Probably: Tramadol(ultram) is an opioid since it works by stimulating the mu opioid receptor. It should have been controlled by the fda right at the outset. I have needed to detox numerous people from it. However, your history suggests you can use this safely. As long as you use it for severe pain, avoid routine use, avoid any pattern of use- you will likely be fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was perscribed Ultram/tramadol for my tumors & now new pain for a messed up epidural yet Im breastfeeding a 2week old, is this safe to take or toss?
Probably Safe: Ultram is probably safe for breast feeding. Limited information has shown minimal risk for problems in the baby or in your milk production. However, I advise you to closely monitor how your baby is doing while you are on the medication. Again there is a small risk, but your pain control and health are also important, because the healthier you are, the better it is for your baby! I hope this helps. ...Read more
