Should I continue taking tramadol with gabapentin and lyrica or quit tramadol for neuropathy???
Hi, i take Lyrica, and found it helpful when discontinuing alcohol, it can also be helpful when discontinuing some medications, so i would think it could be quite successful. Depending on why you are taking the Gabapentin, i would say that this, OR the Lyrica should be sufficient, rather than taking the 2 together (but your doctor can advise you on this)... I assume your doctor has prescribed the Lyrica, has he given you an idea of a tapering schedule for the Tramadol? Lyrica can be used to relieve some pain conditions, as well as being used for anxiety, so hopefully it will be a good alternative, whether short or long term
hhmmm... my dr just started me on tramadol 3 weeks ago; have been on gabapentin and cymbalta for 5 months now... feel less pain (from 9 to 6) but i still have insomnia, along with other issues that drive me nuts... so far tho the tramadol/gaba/cymb combo is somewhat successful... i do thro in Tylenol from time to time as needed...
