Is it safe to take Tramadol HCL while on Tylenol and Ibuprofen?

Yes, I had total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and my sleep lately has been getting worse instead of better; I'm trying to quit taking the OXYCODONE and trying to just take 1000mg of Tylenol every 8 hours and 600mg of ibproefen every other 8 hours . . . . . is it ok to take 100mg of tramadol hcl with those 2 meds???

Hi,

I can understand you are in severe pain. you are currently taking paracetamol and Ibuprofen three times daily. Yes, it is perfectly ok to take tramadol with the above drugs. Tramadol is a weak opioid, but keep in mind it still holds the power of addiction.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have sinus pain that came up (in the evening) the last three nights. I took a Sudafed and Tylenol the last two nights and it kicked it. Tonight it is severe. Now I took a Tramadol. But I am also on Warfarin (11mg) for DVT which I normally take at night. Can I take my Warfarin tonight?

I was prescribed Tramadol HCL 50 mg tablets for severe back and leg pain however, the pain did not go away. I also have 800 mg Ibupofin tabs and these helped more than the Tramadol, of which I only took one so far. Is it safe to go back to taking the Ibuprofin? SALLY
