... and cannot go to a Dr right now.I friend gave me one of these pills 50 mil,I'm in so much pain but am afraid to take it,can a diabetic take just one of these to relieve this god aweful pain???
Sorry if you take this the wrong way, but anyone who gives you a prescription med without a prescription is anything but a friend, that fact that you're diabetic and taking other meds makes that all the more true.
If you got hit by a truck you'd be able to go to a Dr, so stop telling yourself that and go see one, and tell your "friend to take his own pills.
Sorry for my tone, this just sets me off. The very best to you, hope this helps.
I checked for interactions for you and there seem to be none. I do agree somewhat with the last poster though. Not that this person is not your friend, they are only trying to help, but it can be dangerous to take someone else's meds. I also know what severe pain is like and I am not judging you. Taking 1 Tramadol is probably harmless, but you need to get to a doctor asap. If the pain is that severe go to the ER. Maybe they can examine you and prescribe something in the interim. I hope this helps you and you can get to a doctor soon! Lisa Z.
An infected tooth for a diabetic can become very, very serious. Hospital time serious. It does not go away but only gets worse. Same is true for an impacted tooth. Not sure which you meant.
If you are in the US you need to contact your local social services or community action group. They can tell you which dentists work for free, almost free or have long term payment plans.
Have you checked to see if you qualify for Medicare? Your doctors office will also have options for you including places to contact.
Yes, diabetic supplies are expensive. There are programs out there to help.
And remember you reduce insulin use if you are careful with your diet and exercise. That costs nothing but paying attention. So step by step it will help you.
Call the doc who gives you the insulin and they will help you figure this out. Sadly, you are not the first and they have a great amount of information available. Good luck with this, and I hope your tooth is fixed real soon.
