Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and gabapentin interaction

She referred me to a pain management doctor and physical therapist and also gave me a prescription for Gabapentin (100mg...take 100mg at night for 5 days, then 200mg a night for 5 days then 300mg a night). Has anyone taken it and found it helpful? Also what about the dose? So much that I am reading discusses much higher doses and talks about taking it 3 times a day. Any insight would be gratefully appreciated, thanks.
He was a mechanic, and many other things in his career and has had a devistating attack to his brain by Gabapentin. What I mean is he was a smart guy who was always on top of what ever was going on and now he acts like he has had a labotimy (sp?). I found him petting the coffee pot like it was a dog, saying how well it worked and how it was a mystery to him. Is that normal? I did not have these issues when I took it, I just always felt like it wasn't doing anything for me.
So I'm hooked on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>, without which I can't really walk with my back and the detox is hell, and living in a country where I can get them cheaply, without a prescription, at about 50 locations within a 5 minute walk to my house. Good news: they do have AA here! Bad news: NOT IN INGLES, and my lazy butt hasn't learned Spanish yet. I've tried quitting cold turkey a few times and haven't made in more than 2-3 days. I'm still not drinkin though.
She also gave me........<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>. The biggest bottle of prescription I've ever seen and 11 refills to go with it. I was shocked. My boyfriend asked her if it was addictive or a narcotic and she said NO. Yeah, right. So anyway, this pain on a scale from 1-10 was at a pretty steady 10. At good moments, at a 7. I was desperate for something to help me manage because at this point, I can't do ANYTHING. it's interfering with work, chores, errands, and life in general. OK.
Instead I took some gabapentin and valerian root but I am not doing good at all.. The worst is a massive anxiety and tension I feel inside myself and I feel tempted to blow it out with valium but I don't want to swap addictions.. The tension is so bad that I feel like loosing my mind.. I can't afford going to a doctor so I guess I have to go through this on my own. As long as there's no pill supply around in my house..
i took 150 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> and 25 mg.of methadone for about 3 years..no withdrawal from Methadone precipitated by the Ultram for me, but everyone is different..in fact in the beginning,the Methadone-Ultram combo was the best high i ever had,but it never lasts and you end up chasing the monkey[high] till you die if you don't get clean..

I would like to know each drug I have listed seperately and it's interaction with tramodol. Example....Can I take Effexor XR with Tramodol? Can I take Clonazepam with Tramodol?? Etc. ect. I am very weary of mixing too many meds. PLEASE help me out by answering these questions.
Here's a link to a good drug interaction checker, If nothing comes up that means there's no interactions. Use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> instead of Ralivia and acetaminophen w/ codeine instead of T3's. http://healthtools.aarp.

I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Also, please note that there is a major drug interaction between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> and cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril).

thx misty and tomskat!!! sandstone i thoght given the fact that both gabapentin and sjw both affect brain chemistry there may be a problem..altho I didnt research it. thx 4 the info. sjw helped my underlying depression yrs ago. hoped it'd lift this black cloud. I feel soooo depressed,cry @ the drop of a dime, but other than this forum, which is invaluable, i still have done nothing to fix myself...sometimes i really feel its pointless.
The best thing about the gel is that they are all non-addictive, less drug on drug interaction and you can apply it directly to the source of your pain. If you dont have insurance to cover the cost then its probably not worth it because the bottles were $240, luckily all I had to pay was $10 co-pay. Now I havent heard of too many people that have used these gels, but it worked wonders for my pain.
I take a variety of drugs for my neurological symptoms, including <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>, Gabapentin and Amitryptiline and while combined they do have a profound effect (making me drowsy, etc.), I have been taken this combination of drugs for several years and have only recently started to experience the loss of sensation in my penis.
I was taking 100 darvocet once a day, took 900 mg of gabapentin a day, 100 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> 3 times a day, prozac 40 mg a day, mevacor 20 mg a day, elavil 100 mg at night, 1200 mg ibropofen a day, migraine medicine (maxalt 10) 3-4 times a week. basically I went into the e.r. where they basically were going to send me to the psych ward (which they didn't even have one), I left.
I had a terrible drug interaction (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> + sertraline). I feel like I am still withdrawing from that toxicity. But hydrocodone makes me nauseous. I quit taking sertraline (Zoloft) because it doesn't go well with Hydrocodone either. Zoloft did help with nausea & appetite though. Sooo, I'm trying to just take ibuprofen, but the sleep dr. (today) wants me to try a small dose of mirtazepine nightly, because pain is worse then. I said 2 wks & that is all I will give it.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
