Should only Cyclobenzaprine be used without Tramadol?

I have ben taking Tramadol for awhile now.However had been out and just got new script.Took two at 5:26. I have severe vascular problems w/ severe muscle spasms in my legs.My Dr also just today called in a new pain med called Cyclobenzapr Tab 10mg.I realize I shouldn t take one now. Would it be safe to just use the new drug at night and no Tramadol,and only take the tramadol as needed during the day? I see the combination can cause seizures.Thank you. If it helps I am a 57 yo female.

hi
Tramadol is for pain and cyclobenzprine is for muscle spasms, both may be indicated in your case so doctor may have prescribed.There would be no siezures as you fear.But i may suggest you to try physical therapy,massage and fomentation also if put on both drug for earlier response
best wishes
