How many hours should you wait before taking your first dose of Tramadol when you were just switched to it from Tylenol/hyrocodone for pain? I took two tylenol 500/hydrocodone 5MG at 7:00 a.m. Can I take the Tramadol at 7:00 p.m. or how long should I wait to avoid a potential problem? Thank you.
Unless you are overly sensitive to these type of medications, you really could take the ultram right after. I take ultram at night to help me sleep, and just recently had surgery and was taking Oxycodone around the clock and then switched to hydrocodone , still taking ultram and had no issues. You can start It anytime
4-6 hours apart should be safe. Like the previous poster said, many people do take both and some can take them within an hour or two of each other. If you are sensitive and get sedated from these kinds of meds easily, you will want to space them a bit apart and 4-6 hours should be safe.
You should take caution when combining Tramadol & Hydrocodone, please click on the following link to read the possible interaction symptoms... https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=2874-0,2221-0,11-12
