I have 37mg tramadol and the bottle Just says I can take it up to 3x daily, as needed. I’ve taken 2, 3 hours apart, and still feel like I’m in pain. Would it be safe to take another one? It’s been 3 hours since I took the last one and I just need the pain relief at night.
How close together can I take my tramadol?

Aren't a 37.5 dosage is too little?
My Tramadol comes in 50 mg pills and the directions are to take 1 or 2 tablets every 6 hours. Do not exceed 300 mg in 24 hours.
No queen of pain; these should be more like taken every 6 to 8 hours if you are not getting any relief from tramadol you should check with the doctor again on Monday the more is not better. This is hard to get off of when you take it that way. be careful chuck1957
I wouldn't take any sooner than six hours if you can. I think your tramadol is a combination ptoduct with acetaminophen which should afford a bit more relief of pain. Tramadol is not a drug you want to take higher doses of for along time. There are many side effects at higher doses and quitting the drug even at lower doses is very challenging. Can you handle nsaids? Maybe naproxen or motrin between doses?
