Since tramadol is not really an opioid and it's not as powerful or strong as hydrocodone I should say so yes why not other people have taken worse with the hydrocodone.

they are not the same. they work the smae in your body, however, to get rid of moderate to severe pain. Both working with your central nervous system. tramadol is a non narcotic pain reliever and hydrocodone is a narcotic pain reliever. they both can be very addicting so use with caution.

Negative, ghostrider! They are not the same. Hydrcodone is a true opiate based from opium,semisynthetic,aka is a scheduled controlled substance.
Ultram,besides being garbage,is now called an opiod becauuse it acts on opiate receptors inthe brain,like hydro, butis totally fake.its not a controlled substance, but the literature flaunts it as"not to be snifed or injected". If it was so bad theyd schedule it.ITS A MARKETING GIMMICK for scary candyacs doctors that are shaking in their boots about prescribing opiates to people that hurt.and every opiate in USA is controlled.except ultram. I started out in florida in a car wreck,then given oxy and hydrocodone,etc,then progressed to 6-8mg of Dilaudid,morphine,etc and still functioning. At no point was ultram an option.theytried me once and i threw it away. GARBAGE.seizures are a possibility.worse side effects than any opiate.understand i rate "feel good"with kills pain.but ultram feels BAD and kills pain.its garbage bs scam.

in smaller doses tramadol and hydrocodone should be alright to take together. tramadol is a non narcotic pain reliever while hydrocodone is a narcotic. Both used to treat moderate to severe pain. Both these medications have the same response to your body. they both work with your central nervous system to get rid of pain. However, taking any SSRI's with tramadol i strongly do not recommend. tramadol is classified as an SSRI, i believe, and taking any SSRI's with tramadol could result in a serotonin over dose and you could develope serotonin syndrome which could be life threatening. remember these are just my opinions. so if you want a more accurate response i would suggest to call your local pharmacist or contact your primary healthcare provider. ive been on many medications so my response is from my personal experience and the initial knowledge i have on these two drugs. i hope it helps!!

I have taken wellbutrin and celexa for many years, and have also on occasion taken tramadol at the same time with no adverse effects. My doctor and my pharmacist have never advised otherwise... they HAVE, however, indicated that the properties of tramadol are such that they should NEVER be taken with any other opiod at the same time or within a 24 hour period. I did it once and, like I'd been warned by my doctor, I went into narcotic withdrawal and it was absolutely awful. I can only relate my own experiences, but please check with a trusted physician or better, a psycho-pharmacologist.
