Can I take Ultram while taking lortab?

Be careful, please. Ultram is not a narcotic but acts like a pain relieving narcotic. Do not take both ultram and lortab during the same 4 hour period. Either of these medications can make you very sleepy. Hope you feel better soon!
Why? They are similar analgesics...Why do you need both. I would wait at least 4 hours between doses if you were prescribed both.
