From my personal experience very few narcotics interact with those medications. I would recommend taking Naproxen Sodium or Ibuprofen first, second I would suggest taking something called Tramadol and the third I would recommend a short acting narcotic such as Percocet or Lortab for Acute pain. For Chronic pain I would recommend a long acting narcotic such as Morphine Sulfate ER or Oxycotin. Hope this helps. Good luck to you!

Methadone is a good narcotic as well.

You should not take Tramadol with any SSRI anti-depressant, such as Paxil, Proxac, etc. It can result in a serious, potentially fatal, condition known as Serotonin Syndrome. Naproxen or Ibuprofen is fine. And narcotics, depending on condition, your doctor, etc.

yea i have t disagree with whoever suggested ultram while you are on paxil.see both paxil and ultram work on seretonin.it is very rae but its called seretonin syndrome,and it can be fatal..so if iwas you i would ask for lorcet plus.its very effective and it want have bad interactions with your other meds.
