My wife's Doctor took her off of Tramadol for her

My wife's Doctor took her off of Tramadol for her arthritic pain in her knees, back, shoulder, hip and hands. She was NOT addicted to the opioid pain med as too many other people are. She needed 5 Tramadol a day for her pain, however several times because of weather changes and high humidity, she needed to take more thus running out of meds before she could get them refilled. Her Doctor said she was addicted to them and stopped her prescription for tramadol. She can only take over- the-counter pain pills and they are not doing her any good. IS THERE ANY non-opioid prescription pain med more powerful than Tylanol, Aleve, etc.???

I have been having trouble sleeping because of significant pain in my neck and shoulders. I have been trying to limit the analgesics to NSAID s, per my doctor s recommendations, but following two virtually sleepless nights, I added 25 mg of Tramadol from a previous prescription, then, about 90 minutes later, took a 10 mg Zolpidem tablet that my wife offered me. Is there any potentially dangerous interaction in this mix? I have no other health problems. Stan

My prescription of tramadol is one tablet every six hours as needed. I have rheumatory arthritus which causes me severe pain at times. I took a dose of tramadol 3 1/2 hours ago and the pain is not subsiding. My blood test for the arthitus was 97. I am not scheduled to take another does for 2 1/2 hours. Would it be safe to take a dose sooner. Being New Years, I cannot get in touch with my doctor and the urgent care center is closed. Can you give me some advice.
