I'm on Maxitram (Tramadol) , Cocodamol 300/500 , Gabapentine ,Amitriptyline
I was orginally on Florexitine (antidepression) and one of the Gps took me off it she said it could cause a serotionan (sorry can not remember spelling) attack with taking Tramadol as well. I was then put on Amitriptyline as it helps with depression and pain.
I myself decided to reduce the Gabapentine and am suffering with neuropathic pain with the reduction. I also have arthritic pain and muscel pain. However when I was at the doctors the other week the locum asked did I feel I still needed the Amitriptline and I said yes. Depression plagues me. She then flashed up something on the screen about side effects with the mix of Gabapentine and Amitriptyline does anyone know what they are? I would do without any tablets if I could but suffer from a lot of pain.
Thinking I might ask to get refered back to one of the consultants that put me on the medication.
