I had not asked my prescribing Doctor, and I was afraid of taking two, but the one pill does not help me, so I registered unto this site, which is very useful and important to get my answers, because I find this site to be very reliable and dependable.
Does Tramadol come in larger doses other than 50mg, I would prefer taking a higher dosage rather than taking so many pills.
Yes, you can..
I got prescribed Tramadol HCL 50MG and a single pill wasn't doing the trick..So I called to complain and the doctor said I can take 2.. in fact for my refill he prescribed me 30 so I can take two each time.. Not sure y he didn't just up the dose. ..
My family doctor has me on Tramadol as well 50 mg I'm to take 2 tablets 3 x a day. I don't have any problem with them. I also take Flexeril a muscle relaxants.
I noticed this thread was dated May 2012... have you talked to your doctor about this? What did they say?
asked your Dr i take 300 mg a day without a probem BUT ALSO CHECK WITH YOUR DR OR YOUR RHP
No rather increasing the dose u should ve a combination therapy. u can take piroxicam(brexin) along with tramadol. it lll be much effective. discuss this with ur doctor also
Did you try taking Aleve or ibuprofen in between doses of tramadol?
Can you use ice packs to numb the area??? Don't double up on meds... you are going to have problems down the road. And, like someone else already said, you might have trouble getting refills if you run out too soon.
Don't do it and call your doctor asking for other remedies as well. Okay??? Please don't start doubling up...
Not without your Dr's approval, you're just asking for trouble and risking ever getting a refill. Wait until you can talk to your Doc, it'll be worth it. Hope this helps.
I wouldn't take more than prescribed. Although listed as a non-narcotic, it is a synthetic opiate with high addiction/ dependency properties for a lot of people. I'd try and make it through until you can contact your dr tomorrow and let him know it's just not working for you. Try elevating your ankle above heart level and applying ice packs to the leg above your cast. If you just can't abide the pain anymore, go to the er. At the very least you can call your drs office and get the number for his night service and ask them about upping your medication dose. Hope this helps you a bit and let us know how things turn out for you!
