Interactions between your selected drugs
tramadol ↔ mirtazapine
Applies to: tramadol, mirtazapine
Talk to your doctor before using traMADol together with mirtazapine. Combining these medications can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms while taking the medications. Using traMADol with mirtazapine may also increase the risk of seizures not related to the serotonin syndrome. 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. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. 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.

Hi please take note of Masso's answer, however some people can take Tramadol with antidepressants without issues. I used to combine Tramadol with Citalopram and Amitriptyline and had no problems, but you should check with your doctor first for their opinion... and as already stated, you shouldn't take prescription medication unless it is prescribed for you, it could be very dangerous. Hope you are feeling better
