I am currently on Tramadol for pain relief but to be honest I am a bit frightened of it as its addictive & I also take Venlafaxine. On the leaflets you get with both meds it states both should not be taken together. I have tried before coming of the Venlafaxine with horrendous withdrawl effects only for me to go back on them at a stronger dose.
A friend gave me a strip of Gabapentine & I have taken it now for 3 days. I have noticed a difference & my sleep has been great. So I am now wondering which med is the better of two evils.
Can anyone give me their opinion & advice.
