I have never taken tramadol before. A friend gave me 1 one single 50mg tablet. I had a 4-5 beers and then took the Tramadol. I'm probably overreacting, but will I be alright? I know body chemistry's differ, but just want opinions.
Again. I have only taken this ONCE, as above.
Tramadol hydrochloride is a prescription medication approved to treat moderate to moderately severe pain in adults. Currently, tramadol is not considered a controlled substance or a narcotic by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). However, this medication has significant potential for abuse and is classified as a controlled substance in certain states.
Alcohol and tramadol hydrochloride are both central nervous system depressants (CNS depressants). This means they both can slow down brain function. In addition, both substances can cause respiratory depression (shallow or infrequent breathing). Drinking alcohol while taking this medication may increase your risk for serious reactions. This is why combining the two is not recommended.
Please never combine tramadol & alcohol.
Be safe, best wishes!
Hi, as Rajive has said, it is not a good idea to mix tramadol with alcohol. But taking just the one tablet with the beers will be ok so don't worry. New users of tramadol are much more sensitive to them so bare that in mind. I'm not advocating this whatsoever, but I have been taking tramadol for a few years now & have drank alcohol with them several times with no problems, I'm only telling you this so you don't worry.
I took 4 tramadols at once and drank a litre bottle of gin and was absolutely fine no need to worry
