I can't take any pain medications that are controlled substances, as I am easily addicted to them. I deal with migraines and chronic pain.
Tramadol is an analgesic pain reliever. It does not stop muscles from spasming. You can take Flexeril with the tramadol. Flexeril is a muscle relaxant. You may feel groggy so don't do anything requiring concentration or coordination like driving while taking this combo until you see how it affects you. By the way, as you can not just stop taking the tramadol abruptly without experiencing withdrawal symptoms, some people say it is addictive.
I've taken them together, because my doctor prescribed both. However, everyone is different, so I would ask your PCP. If you do decide to take them together, do it in the daytime while you have a friend close by, just in case. I see where you have migraines. I've had them my whole life. I got my Daith pierced a couple weeks ago, and so far, it has done wonders! It may be something you might try. Good luck!
