Medicine

I am currently in France and have sustained a lower back injury, which I struggle to walk with, the doctor has prescribed me Ketoprofene Zentiva 100mg, and Monocrixio 100mg, unfortunately the language barrier was a massive problem whilst asking questions about these medicines. Can anyone tell me if i can take them both together or am i supposed to leave a few hours in between?

Hi Danny, just a quick google of these meds suggests that the first one is an anti inflammatory and the second is a version of tramadol which is a pain killer. It is quite usual to be prescribed both for acute injury and as far as I know you can take both together but I am not medically trained - just used google. Hope that helps. Best wishes

If I can't get to a registered pharmacist to check, I use the drugs.com interactions checker drugs.com/interactions-chec... Seems to show that combination is fine to take together.

Sure you can. Make sure you know how to take them. Once daily if it is extended release. Ketoprofen should be taken with food.

As both of them are [url=http://orthopedicsurgerysandiego.com/]traditional medicines[/url] so you can take both at the same time but usually it is not recommended.
