  • What are healthy steps should i take against cronary artery disease
    I feel sharp pains just below my left breast . At first i thought it was a breast cancer but ii ran a test that cancelled that out. Now, i strongly suspect a coronary artery disease. I also feel similar pains at my feets, restlessness at night and a bit of hallicinations at night. I also have high blood pressure.
  • Does humira cause excessive sweating?
    Having psoriaticarthritis,fibromyalgia,psoriais,restless leg syndrome,roseacea and high blood pressure means complex health issues and a complex list of medication to go with it. Iam suffering extreme sweating,flushing and now a tickled cough. Now it could be due to going through the change (menopause) but that started a year ago and although I was getting the flushes and sweating,it was nothing like it is now! To me,it seems the excessive sweating started roughly a month after taking Humira. Having so many health issues I'm in tune with any changes and note and monitor them. I started Humira 10 months ago now. My Psoriasis has cleared completely so I'm really pleased. Usually,there's a trade off and you end up with something else! Could the issues I have be down to a single drug on the list,or a combination?
  • Can tramadol usage cause a low white blood cell count?
    Low WBC of 2.7 on 10/21/15 and then 3.8 on 12/08/15
    Can these things be connected?
  • In having a-fib, can one use xarelto along with temador for brain tumor treatment
    Both drugs lower platelets, is using Xarelto unwise
  • Can i take diclofenac sodium mispoprostol with tramadol hcl?
    I have bad arthritis in my hips - very painful and affecting my quality of life. My doctor like to prescribe pills. He has given me Diclofenac Sodium Mispoprostal and Tramadol HCL. I have experienced minimal side effects i.e.: drowsiness but thats about it. I just want to be sure that I can take these drugs together.

  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
    After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.
  • Mom died of stomach blockage while on tramadol
    my mom was taking tramadol for hip pain. she went in the hospital for a hip replacement and died 3 days after the surgery in the hospital from an intestinal blockage
  • Using tramadol with anti-depressants
    Using Tramadol with Anti-depressants

    I was taking Tramadol for pain instead of Endone to cut out the opiates as well as my usual anti-depressant. After about 6 months of feeling dizzy spells and nausea I stumbled across information that these two medications should not be mixed. After all of the extensive tests they did to find out why I had these symptoms, I informed my Doctor of what I had discovered. Much the their embarrassment, they realised I was correct and immediately took me off the tramadol. I just thought I would share this information in case any one else is going through what I did.
  • No noticeable effects
    No noticeable effects when used together. Tramadol dose 50-100 mg's four times a day.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (10 months ago):

  • The abnormal dreams & mild hallucinations came only after starting the methylprednisolone a few days ago. They happen primarily when I am sleeping. I woke up last night with very unusual dreams & head/brain pain, and was quite concerned. I had taken 1 methylprednisolone & 1 cymbalta before bed. Earlier in the day, I had taken 2 methylprednisolone & 2 tramadol before a nap, and had similar, though not as severe issues. Trying to figure out what the interaction problem is. I did not take the muscle relaxant (cyclopenzaprine) before bed since I started the cortico steroid pack.

    Mother just survived near brush with respiratory arrest. Hallucinated at night on Tramadol, argumentative with RN who reported her to MD. He planned to ADD Seroquel 25 mg to Tramadol, Neurontin, Remeron and Ativan in rehab facility. She declined Tramadol and Seroquel and was still so sedated her pulse ox went down to 84 with long periods of apnea and need for constant obs with frequent rousing for airway. MAJOR struggle with RN to get 02 and MD agreed to no more Tramodol at night and absolutely no Seroquel. How many elderly are lost this way?
