Hi mzmelinda! Welcome to drugs.com! :)
I take Cymbalta 120 mgs daily for chronic pain. It's an anti-depressant that can also be used to treat pain. I use 1 or 2 Tramacet pills 37.5 mgs for any breakthrough pain. Since I've been on this dosage of Cymbalta, my Tramacet usage is extremely reduced. I also have liquid Morphine (syrup).
I had to take Warfarin (Coumadin) 3 years ago for about 14 months. At that time, I used Tramacet for my pain relief. I live in Canada & Tramacet isn't available in some countries such as the U.S.A.
mzmelinda, depending on what kind of pain or the cause of pain would help to determine the best pain relief, keeping in mind the patient's medical history & what other medications are in daily usage. Your healthcare provider would be the best person to help with this. You'd also be able to ask your pharmacist this question for a knowledgeable answer.
I wish you good health, mzmelinda! from Wendy :)

Hello New Friend,
You may take a broad scope of pain medicines, it is the Vitamin K that is a real big NO-NO. Also, no cranberries.(food items and over the counter products are where people run into problems) The Rx's the Pharmacy watches, if one goes to the same one. No aspirin and watch the NSAIDS it thins the blood.That is what is the larger.
My blood tests came back with my PT and all counts (antigens) showing great no more Coumadin or blood thinners. (if I had to be on one I would use the new one).
I had treatment with Cytoxan for those with Anti-Phosolipid Syndrome (Vasculitis Disease) mine was quite bad and I had the IV with pre-meds for 6 months and one treatment after that and all tests are negative, no swelling and I have been told this is not used often and I do not know if it is off label use or how many clinical trails it has been used in but I had 100 percent success. I used the Vasculitis Protocol and most Rheumatologists know about this treatment if they are in a larger clinic/hospital. Good luck to everyone... but I hope some of you can say mine is gone or in remission.

As you are reviewing a completed patient history data sheet on a 50 year old female, you notice that
... she is currently taking Coumadin and Lasix (odd combination, I know). What type of precautions should you take with this patient, and why?
