According to my Physician yes you can. I was surprised when he recommended Tramadol as a Pain Management option (I had a painful case of Mild Acute Pancreatitis) since as he also prescribes me 8mg or Buprenorphine twice a day and has for several years for relapse prevention. I also consulted with my pharmacist and he said the the Buprenorphine may partially negate the pain reliving effects of the Tramadol but it would still provide some relief and was better than Tylenol. Always take all medications as directed especially when taking with a partial or full opioid agonist or Benzodiazepine. Also to my understanding over-regulating Tramadol can lead to Grand Mal seizures among other things

In my opinion, the best way to judge occurrences of sort with medications, is not go only by books and degrees

Welcome to the site. Suboxone BLOCKS all opiates and opoids and tramadol is an opioid. You can take it, but it won't help, because the suboxone will block it. Is there a reason you want or need to take it, like an injury or pain causing condition. If there is, you should talk to your dr about options, if you need opiate, you need to be off suboxone, in order for them to work. If you will click comment, you can add more info and we can offer more suggestions. Patti

I'm sorry, Patti, but you ma'am are absolutely 100% incorrect. Lol sorry to burst your bubble, but I've done it with 0 negative effects. I still receive complete pain relief mixing the two drugs.

Is there anything besides aspirin, Motrin, NSAIDS, Tylenol that I can take occasionally?

I was taking tramadol 50 mg. The pharmacist said they are contraindicated and cannot be used together. I had to have 2 Doctors call CVS before they filled the sub Rx. Good thing my Doctor ok'd the sub knowing I still had the tramadol. He said just ditch the tramadol. Also I had taken the tramadol 12 hrs before I took an 8mg sub and a few hrs later I was vomiting, didnt/ couldn't sleep and this morning I was violently ill with vomiting. And I have a pretty high tolerance for opioids... just an FYI. I realize everyone is different but I wouldn't chance it. Hope this helps. Good luck.

2tonetommy I 100% agree with you. I have been doing the same thing and have had no negative effects.

Wrong, but a common error. See my full comment below for an explanation for this apparent contradiction, which keys on the fact that tramadol is not an opiate, but is an "opiate-like" drug. free discount card
