Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Not only is tramadol not a typical pain medication used in pregnancy, there are animal studies that suggest that there might be some harm. Also, you are right, there are interactions between these medications. It is okay to take Zoloft during pregnancy, but you need to talk with your doctor about another form of pain control.

I hope that this helps and good luck!
