Talk to your Dr and tell him/her the prescribed medication isn't helping you, however, worst thing you can do is go in there and ask for something specific. The pain patient is in dire straights more than ever. Let the Dr make the choice, you'll get a lot more success that way.

Max dose at a time is 100 mg. The most that can be taken a day. Is 400 MG. I found that it worked best if you took it regularly instead of waiting until the pain was bad.

Hi, there is a combination version which contains Paracetamol, however it would be more effective to take standard Tramadol alongside Paracetamol as 2 seperate analgesics, as the combination tablet has a reduced mg of Tramadol. There is also an extended release version, which some people prefer. A 'standard' dose of Tramadol is 100mg, this can be taken every 4 hours - to a maximum of 400mg a day.
