Update, Tramadol + Geodon...

Posted by Sheilac on July 27, 2015, at 12:48:32

I saw my pdoc today and she said I could take Tramadol with Geodon. The internet drug checker says there could be a higher risk of seizure, but neither my doc nor my pharmacist think it's a problem.

I have a chronic pain condition that the specialist likes to give Tramadol for. Only 3-4 times a year will he RX hydrocodone. But the Tramadol makes irritable & manicky.

My pdoc's answer is to push the Geodon from 120mg at night to 160mg at night. And if I have to add in low dose Depakote during the day. I can only go up to 250-375mg of Depakote. I had an allergic reaction at 500mg (rash & cancer soars).

I don't have to take Tramadol everyday, but when I do need to take it, I need to stay stable.

I always worry about high (if 160mg is high) dose of Geodon. But I also worry about taking Depakote and frying my liver. So maybe a higher dose of Geodon will bring about the stabilization I need and I won't have to add in the Depakote.

Even though we shouldn't drink on these meds, sometimes I like to have 1 glass of with dinner. My pdoc was really against any amount of alcohol with Depakote. Another reason to stick with Geodon.

Geodon has been a great non-traditional mood stabilizer for me. Are there any risks with taking 160mg? That just seems really high.
