... serve pain post gallbladder removal is allergic to motrin
Hi, obviously it depends on the individual, what they can or cannot take, but i have taken Tramadol with Tylenol (paracetamol) often, and also i have taken Tramadol with Ibuprofen, both after getting advice from my Dr. So if your daughter is OK to take Tylenol and Ibuprofen, you can quite safely use the combinations i have listed.
First of all, how long is she post op? She shouldn't be in severe pain now. If she is she needs to see the doctor. I had this happen to me & it took them 8 years, & I was down to skin & bones before they found out it wasn't my gallbladder after all, & removing it made the pain that I had even worse & was a sick sick person with high liver enzymes. It turned out it was spasm of the common bile duct the whole time. The end of it was not opening to let the bile into the small intestine like it's suppose to, & the spasms from it were the most horrible pain in the world. Also it's possible if she had her gallbaldder out, they may have missed a stone that could be lodged in the bile duct. Has she had an ERCP to check for this? ... Mary
Tramadol Extended Release etc DOES have acetophemomen/tylenol in it already, not motrin.
Tramadol 50 mg and up DO NOT.
Like Mary, I had a gallbladder removal unnecessarily and it screwed up my whole intestinal tract 10 years later!. Your doc needs to re-think his treatment/surgery diagnosis, although he won't admit he screwed up with unneccessary surgery. If you can, see another doctor and spare your daughter years of pain and suffering. best wishes
Does it mix, not sure what that means? Motrin? No. If your Dr is the one who prescribed the Tramadol, and is (or at least should be) aware of the allergy, I would (hopefully) imagine the proper precautions were taken?
Also, (and just my opinion), Tramadol is a bit lightweight for a post-surgical medication. Hope this helps.
There is Ultram (Tramadol) and Ultram ER(Tramadol ER) that do not have acetaminopen or Tylenol or motrin in them then there is Ultracet and Ultracet that do have acetaminophen in them but no Motrin or ibuprofen. If it is a combination medication, it must list all of the drugs. You might see tramadol/APAP. APAP is an abbreviation for acetaminophen. It will list the mg as XX/XXX as well. If you are unsure of what you have, the best thing to do is call your pharmacist to see what kind was dispensed. If she has just plain Ultram or Tramadol, she can take Tylenol or acetaminophen with it. If it already has APAP in it then you would not want to take any extra acetaminophen. If she is having severe pain after gall bladder surgery, you need to notify her surgeon. Gall bladder surgery is not, as a rule, very painful post op. If she is having severe pain I would be concerned that there may be a complication. Many people go back to work again a day or two after gallbladder surgery. Please call her surgeon and let him know she is in terrible pain!! That is not normal.
