If the pain is really bad?
26 May 2010
I copied this for your information. There are so many misconceptions about whether or not Tramodol is an opioid pain reliever.
"Tramadol belongs to the group of medicines called opioid analgesics (narcotics). It acts in the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain. When tramadol is used for a long time, it may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence). Physical dependence may lead to side effects when you stop taking the medicine. Since tramadol and acetaminophen is only used for the short-term relief of pain, physical dependence will probably not occur."

Actually tylenol isn't in tramadol, it is only in ultracet. Ultram is without tylenol. So if you are on the combo version, stay away from acetominophen containing products. But I just take tramadol, no tylenol in it, so I can take up to 1000 mg of acetominophen daily. I try not to though, just because its pretty useless for me. My dr recommended I take ibuprofen, an 800 mg prescription strength, when I need it for inflammation or breakthru aches and pains.
