Can i take tramadol and ibuprofen

Common Questions and Answers about Can i take tramadol and ibuprofen


Avatar_f_tn However it MUST NOT be taken with alcohol so if you do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> and it helps the pain and you don't drink then that's great. But if you slip up then you must stop and find another way for the pain. I can't realistically see that the trams will lower your inhibitions to the point of going back to the drink but if it does, at least you know where you stand. you must treat your pain. If you take the prescribed dose there shouldn't be a problem related to the alcohol use/past use.
3072999_tn?1356418332 I saw my NS today and was telling him about the pain I was in and the problems I was having and that I was currently trying to avoid Norco and taking more ibuprofen. Well he is referring me to Physical Therapy (yeah, I'm hoping it helps me out) and also massage therapy and prescribed me tramadol. He said to take it every 6 hours everyday as it is not an 'as needed medication' like Norco or ibuprofen. Anyone with any experience with this medication and whether it will provide some relief.
Avatar_f_tn Hi Cathy! I used to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> and Norcos, and I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> tell you that you should NOT try to come of the trams cold turkey! I dont know how much your taking, but the trams have an anti-deprssant in them as well so you can risk having a seizure if your taking alot of them and come off to fast. Not to mention the w/d's s uck!! My best advice is talk to your Dr. about coming off the trams ie: a slow taper.
Avatar_m_tn Unfortunately, there are side effects with every medication. Personally, I am not a fan of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> as it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> be very difficult to come off and I think there are much better both long-acting and shorting-acting meds that can be used.
Avatar_n_tn He has me bend over and walk on my toes and on my heels and I mean it does'nt hurt like a sharp pain so I have mobility but after standing for a while or sitting down for a while my back get real weak and I feel like it's real tired and worn down when I use to have the Ultram it would take the pain away but I was taking too much and if I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> some type of narcotic I know for sure that I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> manage it and only take my recommended dose but I know that I will be hooked sooner or later but it's not
Avatar_m_tn I have tapered down considerably over the last 2-3 months. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the film and was on just a sliver a day. Roughly .25-30 mill per day. I want to get off completely. About a week ago, I found an old prescription of tramadol, written by my chiropractor so not even a controlled substance. I thought tramadol was like ibuprofen or aspirin, no big deal. On Sunday, July 20th, 2014, I took two tramadol tablets in a.m. 50 Mill each.
Avatar_n_tn the more i have the more i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span>. then when they are gone, i flip out. i dont think i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> perform my job duties. its like i dont have the "energy". i wish i wouldve never started taking pills. it is the most addicting thing i have ever done.
142841_tn?1201978652 The trial is the Iscomatrix Core Vaccine run by a company called CMAX, if you google it there may be more information. Ill let you know how i go, but all i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> say at this time is that I have a lot more energy, not sleeping all the time, less tired, there have been no sx from this vaccine, just pain/swelling and redness in the injection site on the arm.
Avatar_n_tn Has anyone else switched to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>? with the Darvocet dose I've been on, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> I expect severe withdrawal symptoms? Thanks for your input.
Avatar_n_tn I have never been addicted to anything at all before these pain killers and then I have really bad pain and asked my DR is there anything better I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> besides Advil 800mg Anti-inflamitories and Tylenol that I will NOT get addicted to. I WAS LIED TO, OR MIS-INFORMED whatever you wanna call it and now it is just as addicted as the Lortabs and Vicoprofen. I would say that it is slightly worse, which is pure hell.
983592_tn?1249766535 Hi, I just had a total thyroidectomy done 7/25 and the doctor gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> for pain. It did not help me at all, and in fact seemed to start some problems that I hadn't had before and also made pain worse, and so I disposed of them. Now I have back of neck & head migraines that are hanging onto me all day long, and Tylenol doesn't help. I've been told not to take ibuprofen.
Avatar_m_tn I am a Nurse, a mother and a wife. I know abot drug addiction. I thought I was being good by taking tramadol because it is non-narcotic. I was up to about 200 mg three times a day for back pain from an old car wreck. Three days ago I had a seizure and stopped breathing. My poor husband had to give me cpr, and my sweet 10 year old boy saw it all. I am so ashamed. I was taken by ambulance to ER. Got the CAT scan and EEG. have an appt.
Avatar_m_tn Since stopping the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>, I canNOT sleep and as someone else on this board described, I feel like I have the energy of a 120 year old man. So if anyone else is thinking of dieting (especially as drastic as the yeast-free diet) and getting off of tramadol at same time, DON'T DO IT. with that said, I'm in day 5 off of the tramadol and thinking I might as well tough it out. Threw the rest of my tramadol out. How much longer can I expect to not sleep?
Avatar_f_tn If so, why can you only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> for a short period of time? I was just switched from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> to Ultram. Not sure if I should start this script or just stick with the current tramadol. I used to be on vicodent and did ok, however after surgery they gave me percocet and had pounding heart, chest heaviness and my 1st anxiety attack. These drugs are scary but cannot use anything with asprin as my ears ring and I get uclers. Any advice?
Avatar_n_tn No thank God, and never will again! I think that because of the relatively short duration of my taking it (6 weeks+/-,) and maybe because I didn't go over the "recommended" dose, that one 8-day period of HELL is over and I am feeling more or less normal again. However, I am very weak from all of the GI problems and sleep disturbances during that heinous withdrawal.
13889595_tn?1431947120 I took tramadol (acugesic 50mg) twice on the first day and once for the second day and I am having diarrhoea right just that I have stomach upset..I also took vitamin 168 calcium 450 mg, vitamin D 200 iu tab,84 vitamin B complex and ibuprofen 400mg and a little dosage of chloramine 4mg. ..if I were to consumed activated charcoal 250mg tab for my diarrhoea will it be okay...
639872_tn?1223338275 can i get out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> in home with another drug like brufin panadol and nero drug for my tierd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> i and how much it will take so plz help me thanx
Avatar_n_tn I cant take halves because it is powder capsules but I will have some dinner then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> one and see how I go, I will keep signing in when I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> and let you know.
Avatar_f_tn I think some of the face flushing and sweats are from hot flashes still, but that seems like a mightly long time for that to go on. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> go to the grocery store and by the time I walk up and down one aisle with a buggy, my hair is dripping wet, my face is soaked, and sweat is dropping off the tip of my nose. It's so ridiculous and so embarrassing. The thing that makes me so angry is that I never even so much as took a Benadryl for sleep or ANYTHING other than vitamins my entire life.
Avatar_n_tn It worked wonders. I had energy, no pain, and happiness. But I began to notice that I had to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> almost 8 pills a day to feel good. So I tried to stop. I cut dosage down little by little. I felt like ****. My body had this 'rushing' sensation of anxiety and aches. So now I have to take at least 1 pill a day just to feel normal. I stopped for 2 weeks altogether, but everyday I felt terrible, more so than I did before I started taking the meds.
Avatar_n_tn I have been on 90mgs a day since Feb. I used to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> 16 to 18 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> a day and could not w/d by myself. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> anyone tell me why, when i took 4 tramadol one day last week, I thought I was going to DIE with horrible aches and pains all over my body? What other drugs mixed w/methadone will cause this reaction? Thanks for any info.
Avatar_n_tn I am for personal empowerment through information. I am a lawyer who has done consumer protection class action work. I am not filing a tramadol products liability lawsuit and will not consider a consumer class action because everybody knows that success in a class action comes on the day everybody gets paid to shut up. So I'm going to take a different route here. Let's start with the FDA. tramadol is an unscheduled drug in the US, except for in the few states that have started to regulate it.
Avatar_n_tn i have blood work done every 3 mths and it has always been normal. i am worried that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ibuprofen</span> could damage my liver. i only take 7.5-750mg vicodin. wouldnt it be better to just take the vicodin again?
1684282_tn?1410976195 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar_n_tn sorry to be so blunt but ive seen people addicted to aspirin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ibuprofen</span> who would have thought? but the mind is very strong and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> lead you to fears thinking if i quit i will have horrible withdrawals ..just dont be afraid and go for sure you will be fine..dont believe everything you hear...its not as hard to quit as oxy and lortab..theres just no physical way PERIOD...Those are STRONG PAIN MEDS...SERIOUS BUSINESS...tramadol.isnt a class 2 let alone a class 3...
439522_tn?1214954789 - they never worked for me either - Avisg will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> care of you with information on the trams and I bet you (and your Doc) are surprised. They are not as innocent as most Doc's wouldlike to think....
Avatar_f_tn Avisg can help you with a tapering plan. you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> get off of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> and feel great. It may <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> some time, but, I promise, if you are patient you will be ok. Stay here and post. This forum saved my life.
Avatar_m_tn I anticipate only using it 2 or 3 times per week after my physical therapy. How <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> I safely combine the two? Would it be safe to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> in the afternoon, then take 1 or 2 Percocet at night before bed? Will taking tramadol infrequently cause the withdrawal symptoms I have read about? Thank you for any advice!
