Is there a risk to taking 200 mg gabapentin at night if I take 50 mg Tramadol during the day?

I take 200 mg gabapentin at bedtime to help with back pain at night. I take 50 mg tramadol as needed during the day. How much time should I allow between my last dose of tramadol and the gabapentin at night?
Guess a gap of around 8-10 hours between the med should be alright, but its always recommended to speak to the doc for accurate info who prescribed the meds.
Take care, best wishes!
If you are only taking 50mgs of Tramadol, and then at night 200mgs of gapapentin, you should be fine. If you are elderly the meds will have a bigger affect on your central nervous system and you should (as Rajive suggested) ask your doctor.
