Warfarin with tramadol
1 Reply RSS
I take 3mg of warfarin and 4 mg on 3 days also I have started tramadol 100mg twice daily. Will the tramadol cause a problem with taking warfarin too? I also take slow release 5 HTP 200 g daily. I have fibromyalgia and depression and feel better whilst on tramadol not sure about 5HTP. Would be grateful of your opinion. Thank you. ## Hello, Goldie! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but it;s always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA classifies Tramadol as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Warfarin is a blood thinner and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding...

Can I take strepsils with warfarin? ## Hello, Tina! How are you? I am very sorry about the health problem you have. Which Strepsils formulation?

Or even taking less mg that day?
