I currently take 400mg of tramadol and 50mg of Zoloft daily. Is it safe to do shots while taking these medicines? I hate the thought that I would have to completely give up alcohol and stay at home while my friends are out partying. How dangerous would it be to have several drinks of alcohol while on this medication?
I use to take this and and it says on the papers you get with it from the pharmacy to stay away from alcohol. Could make depression worse and have all kinds of other problems!! I wouldnt do it!
NO! Especially at such a high dose of Tramadol. Both are depressents, and that's exactly what they can do. Depress -or slow down - your heart and blood supply. It can leave you with brain damage or death. Mixing such substances is responsible for the majority of emergency room visits & deaths from overdose.
"Using traMADol together with ethanol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with traMADol. "
"Using sertraline together with ethanol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with sertraline."
Only if you want to land on your butt. I just answered a similar question from a girl who was on medications and had several drinks. She was so ill she was looking for advice on what to do.
Besides, alcohol (ethanol) is a depressant drug and tramadol is similar to a narcotic... defeats the purpose of an antidepressant.
Best regards and I hope you make the right decision. You don't have to stay home... take it from me... you can have fun while you're sober!
