My doctor recently refilled prescriptions for Oxyneo as well as Percocet. At the same time, he prescribed me Tramadol (37.5mg), at two pills per day. So, he clearly intended for me to be taking all three at the same time; however, because of the warning on the website, not to take Tramadol with other narcotic pain medications, I got worried. And I really just wanted to know if it should be safe to take the Tranadol with the other two prescriptions?
Hello Carol and welcome to DC. You ask a good question regarding all three of these meds but specifically the tramadol. It isn't clear to me at all if he meant for you to take all three at the same time. You didn't mention how each was prescribed or what you were being treated for. Is one of them for breakthrough pain or "as needed" for pain? That Oxyneo is pretty strong stuff and the one that replaced OxyContin. Your are getting percocet, too.
From what I have read here, that just means it is possible to take them in the same day but doesn't necessarily mean to take them at the same time. That part isn't clear to me based on the info here. You are right to be cautious...
So, if you are taking Oxyneo on a regular basis and the Percocet as needed but you don't feel the need to take the Tramadol... don't take it. If you prefer to take the Tramadol to see how you feel while still taking the Oxyneo then try that. If you feel fine with that combo then you might not need to take the Percocet. I am thinking that you have more control or freedom regarding when you take what...
Can you give more information, please?
I don't know how unsafe it would be, other then the fact that if you're on the 37.5 it has tylenol in it and so does percocet, so don't take too much of that. I have more concern that taking tylenol regularly over a long period of time will destroy your liver. I don't know what good it would do you, taking only that amount and when you have much stronger medications.
