Allergic to morphine, vicodin, codeine, nsaids. Chronically ill, looking for pain relief. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is useless. Tramadol ok? Other suggestions?

Painful situation. You have a difficult problem which is not uncommon. You need a concerned physician to review the reactions and what alternatives are available for treatment. Ideally you could see an allergist and a pain specialist to resolve this issue. Also i would be looking into alternative methods of controlling pain such as stress reduction meditation and even possibly acupuncture.

Safe pain killer. Unfortunately there is no such thing as a "safe pain killer" . What are you taking these meds for? Look for alternative treatment options rather than relying on a pill to help you.

The real answer. You do not say what your "allergy" to the other medications was. Was it itching? Nausea? Or did you stop breathing? As was said there is no guaranteed safe medication. However, there should not be a reason you could not take tramadol based on the little history you give. Read more...
Agree with Dr Patel. If pain a chronic issue, best to seek out a doc who specializes in pain management and uncover root cause of your symptoms, and direct treatment to control of disorder, not focus on secondary pain symptoms. Chronic pain medication, in my experience merely leads to chronic disability and a very poor quality of life. Investigate the alternatives. Read more...
True allergic . Reaction to meds presents with itching, hives, chest pain, shortness of breath and choking sensation. If u had nausea, stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea etc, these are side effects to the drug and not an allergic reaction. Tramadol should be fine if u were allergic to the other drugs.

Specific tests. Tramadol will not show on most urine drug screens unless it is particularly looked for. Since Tramadol is popular and now a scheduled medication it will probably be one that is tested for. Read more...

Just had tibial ORIF, I want something less sedating than norco, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) tramadol did not touch the pain. What would be in between. Can't take NSAID's.

All opiates sedating. This is a tough one. You could try half a norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) combined with a tylenol and see if that works. Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) has some tylenol in it so make sure you do not exceed 3000mg of acetaminophen daily. Another option might by tylenol with codeine. I hope you get some relief soon. Read more...

Very allergic to morphine, vicodin, and NSAIDs. Is tramadol an ok drug for me or am I likely to have allergic reaction?

What is 'allergy'? Morphine and hydrocodone cause a great deal of histamine release, which results in itching, hives, nausea and other GI symptoms, and NSAIDs can cause a great deal of stomach irritation. Neither of these are really allergies, which requires that the immune system be involved in the problem. Tramadol is chemically unrelated to either of these classes of drugs, but also can cause histamine release. Read more...
