Yesterday afternoon I got my box of Medications for a few various conditions.
I am on 300mg of Venlafaxine for Depression/Anxiety/Panic Attacks
I am on 4 x 50mg Tramadol daily or more if required for pain.
I read the leaflets on both these meds & it states they should not be taken together because of causing too much serotonin in your body which can be harmful/dangerous
I have high blood pressure & take 10mg of Ramipril (highest doseage)
I also take 250mg of Naproxen 3 times daily for inflamation & spasms in my lower back.
On the leaflet for Naproxen it states not to take if taking Ramipril.
Most leaflets say not to take medication if you have high blood pressure.
Am I being paranoid & causing myself more stress by reading these or should I highlight this to GP? They are the people who prescribe these medications, should they not know of the problems of taking certain ones together?
Between all the rowing with other GPs & being told by pain clinic there is no tablet to help me when he could ckearly see & even said he could see the pain I was in as I could barely walk. He is just referring me on to a pain management programe where you are taught to pace yourself, keep your mind active sl you dont feel your pain. Yes I am all for that if my pain is under control for me to do so.
I really am at my wits end & feel like I am fighting with no-one listening & being passed from pillar to post.
Sorry for the rant but I am feeling sorry for myself & think I'm entitled to after all I've gone through from Feb to now.
Luv & Hugs
