  • Not together. I checked my husbands medical drug book. They could have a reaction if used together. Just take one or the other. Tramadol is a great with getting rid of pain but it can put you to sleep so it might be better to take it either when the kids are taking a nap or just take half of the dose.

  • yeah tramadol really messed me up, i didn't finish my script. i purposely asked for non-narcotic and got tramadol, then i went back and asked for something with narcotics bc narcotics didn't mess me up like those little pills did.

  • I've taken both at the same time--well, prescribed at the same time. Tramadol has an ingredient in it that has the same molecular structure as an SSRI.
