After falling and breaking my patella January of last year I have developed a lump on the inner side of my knee. It lies right around my varicose vein. My doctor has recently prescribed me Tramadol 37.5 mg with Ibuprofein 325 mg twice a day but so far this has not helped. I am wondering if it's safe to take 2 doses at a time. Also, any suggestions as to what this lump might be? I have no official diagnosis yet.
Hi, the maximum daily dosage for Tramadol is 100mg every 4 hours - up to 400mg per day. Bearing in mind the mg's you have stated, is this a Tramadol & Ibuprofen combination tablet? I've never heard of this... only Tramadol & Paracetamol combination? You should speak with your doctor if you want to increase the dose just to be safe. You can easily increase your Tramadol dose, but if it is combined with Ibuprofen you need to be careful of how much Ibuprofen you are consuming, overdosing on Ibuprofen can cause stomach ulcers and bleeding.
I am prescribed 4- 50mg tram. per day for lower back injury. On a "good" day I will take only 2, about 12 hours apart, always with 600mg (3 caps) of ibuprofen. I weigh 170 lb, I found that this dosage of ibuprofen greatly boosts the tram's effectiveness. On a "bad" day, I will double the tram to 100mg, but NOT the ibuprofen. I also have a few Tylenol #3 (1/2 grain codeine) for the occasional "hell" day, in between trams. All the above for 3+ years, doctor approves. Hope this helps, my friend. :-)
