Should a doctor prescribe Klanopin and tramadol together for seizures
Interactions between your selected drugs
clonazepam ↔ tramadol
Applies to: Klonopin (clonazepam), tramadol
Using clonazePAM together with traMADol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Other drugs that your selected drugs interact with
tramadol interacts with more than 300 other drugs.
Klonopin (clonazepam) interacts with more than 300 other drugs.
Interactions between your selected drugs and food
No results found - however, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist.
If you have severe Liver disease the seizures could be caused by high blood ammonia levels (cramping and tetany); it is known to occur in late to end stage liver disease. The bad kidneys aren't a good sign either as the other possibility is an electrolyte imbalance caused by your suffering kidneys.
I would have thought your doctor would prescribe something like Baclofen for seizures and look for the underlying cause e.g. arterial ammonia levels and/or serum electrolytes. Clonazepam is for seizure disorders but I suspect in your case it will do nothing except cause sedation and the Tramadol will further damage your Liver.
Good luck (as we clearly have only ~1/3rd of the story).
