I am on Adderall XR for add and tramadol for migraines. I take Adderall every morning and tramadol only when I get a migraine. How long after the Adderall should I take tramadol? I don't want to mix the two and feel worse than I already do. Thanks
I researched this and found thses two medications have MAJOR interactions:
amphetamine ↔ tramadol
Applies to:Adderall (amphetamine/dextroamphetamine) and tramadol
TraMADol may rarely cause seizures, and combining it with other medications that can also cause seizures such as amphetamine may increase that risk. The interaction may be more likely if you are elderly, undergoing alcohol or drug withdrawal, have a history of seizures, or have a condition affecting the central nervous system such as a brain tumor or head trauma. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
I would talk to Dr ASAP about changing to meds safely to take together
Hope this helps!
