The Ultram is taking away the pain from neck injury and carpal tunnel issues in my wrists. I feel fine. Actually my appetite has decreased and since I could lose a few pounds thats not a concern. I am worried about the combination of the Wellbutrin and the Ultram. Also, I do not feel 'addicted' though there are warnings to this effect. I am a 24 year sober recovering alcoholic and speed addict, so I am wondering if I should just go off this medication so as not to hurt myself or need to go through the inevitable withdrawal at some point. Any help appreciated
I was an addict for 20 years, I have been clean for 9 years, I am 41.
I take it your doctor knows about your past history, and he knows the benefits vs. the side effects, and this is why the put you on this med.
If you want to go off any medication you must do it under medical supervission... from my experience.
Now I have done an iteraction checker, do not panic..for I take a lot of meds and also get the MONITOR CLOSELY of the meds.
But doctors let us say, doctors know what and why they are doing... it is their job.
They are trainned proffesionals.
Interactions between your selected drugs
bupropion ↔ tramadol
Applies to: Wellbutrin (bupropion), Ultram (tramadol)
MONITOR CLOSELY: The risk of seizures may be increased during coadministration of tramadol with any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, neuroleptic agents, central nervous system stimulants, opioids, tricyclic antidepressants, other tricyclic compounds (e.g., cyclobenzaprine, phenothiazines), carbapenems, cholinergic agents, fluoroquinolones, interferons, chloroquine, mefloquine, lindane, and theophylline. These agents are often individually epileptogenic and may have additive effects when combined. Many of these agents also exhibit CNS- and/or respiratory-depressant effects, which may be enhanced during their concomitant use with tramadol.
MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if tramadol is administered with any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold, particularly in the elderly and in patients with epilepsy, a history of seizures, or other risk factors for seizures (e.g., head trauma, brain tumor, metabolic disorders, alcohol and drug withdrawal, CNS infections).
