Is it that the ultram of 50 mg isn't strong enough? But it keeps me awake at night, i just can't sleep. I HAVE BEEN ON THE TRAZODONE FOR YEARS FOR SLEEP AND BEFOR THIS SURGERY I TOOK 50 OR 100 MG OF TRAZODONE EACH NIGHT AND i was sleeping LIKE A BABY, but now i think it is the pain am having from this total knee replacement revision
I entered your medication into the interactions checker and this is the link to what it said:
You maybe experiencing side effects from the combo of meds. You may want to discuss this with the doctor. The ultram may not be the correct pain reliever for you given that you take trazodone. Explain to the doc that the ultram is not working for the pain and is keeping you awake at night and hopefully he will prescribe something like Lortab for the pain.
I agree with Laurie. Ultram is not a strong pain reliever at all. For your knee replacement you will need a stronger short acting pain reliever, like Percocet or Vicodin. Your doctor should have given you this before you left the hospital. Good luck with that knee. Believe it or not it doessn't take too awfully long for that knee to quite hurting! Time for the bones to adjust! hope this helps...
