Hi I`m new to this community. I am on a pain management schedule. Tramadol 50 mg (6-8 per day) and paracetamol 500 mg (6-8 per day). I was

recently in a multiple car accident, I was hit from the back twice which shunted me into the car in front twice.

My question is " will I be immune from any whiplash pain whilst I am taking my prescribed drugs"

Thank you in advance

    Tramadol is an OPIATE painkiller, while paracetamol matches the Tramadol in a different way. Both medications will assist in suppressing your pain,

    The pain you have now will be suppressed although will not be totally masked, no pain medication will do that, although

    it may give pain relief Your body will heal hopefully

    All the best

  • Hi Bob, thank you for your reply. I asked the question because I am starting to have lower back pain in the right kidney area.

    If you are starting to have pain in back/kidney area that could be a separate problem to your whiplash injury

    Personally I would go to the doctor and make sure all is ok, also if it is from the spine he will make sure of that and possibly give you some NSID to reduce any swelling.

    On this I would advice you to see your GP if you need any support you know where we are

    All the best
