Can I safely use 5 mg of opana at night if I take 100 mg of tramadol in the afternoon? Tramadol keeps me up at night so I need something different

In brief: Big difference

There is quite a difference in the strength of these two medications.
It is not uncommon to use a different immediate release medication closer to bedtime if your regular medication causes insomnia. You should discuss this with you pain management provider.

In brief: Yes...but

Talk to your doctor.Only take them if they are prescribed to you.
