Hello all! I had to reduce my Tramadol to only in the morning (possibly prn if absolutely needed later in day) along with Gabapentin the rest of the day. Its not been helping lately due to increased pain (neck nerve and canal impingements).
The pain doctor said Tylenol 3 is stronger than Tramadol.
Do you think it is stronger?
Thanks so much Fibro Sisters :)
Tylenol 3 it Tylenol wit codeine verse just tylenol. Tramadol is a synthetic pain medication that can mimic an opioid medication, but is discribed by pharmacists and surgical team as ibuprofin on steriods
I can't take Tylenol 3 because Tylenol interacts with my hydroxclorquine. But I can take codeine so the pharmacist is looking to getting ibuprofen with codeine for me. If that happens I will not need the amitriptyline, tramadol, Lodine, and a few others!
Tramadol works better for me than Tylenol 3, however, I do believe we all react to different medications differently.
I don't know which one is stronger but i do know that Tramadol does nothing for me, not even a little bit. I would rather get something OTC then to take that again. I have to take 6-8 of them to even take the edge off. I think they just put sugar in them and stay their for pain,lol. I've noticed several people who take it and i can't help but feel bad for them if that's all they get for pain
