The risks of serotonin syndrome when taking SSRI's or SSNRI's in combination with tramadol are very serious risks. Its a deadly situation. If your doctor has prescribed them both to you, then he or she must the the benefit outweighs that risk. I myself will not take them both, as I have already had a seizure while on tramadol and an SSRI. I won't risk that anymore. If anything feels remotely WRONG while you are on that combination, don't wait... call your doctor asap, just in case.

Hi, as the previous response states, there is a potential interaction risk between these meds', however, from experience, i have had no problems at all. I've been on citalopram and tramadol (400mg daily) for about 5 months together and also take nurofen if needed. Just thought you might be interested to know this?

I wouldn't mix the two. I had taken them previously for a few years, but just this year while I took them both (Not at the same time), my wife found me having a seizure. It was the scariest damn thing ever. Don't risk it. There's got to be other things out there that are not as risky. Tramadol is pretty bad stuff. Since my episode I've been reading that there are lots of people that have had seizures on it.
