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.
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?
