> Scott how is your Mom doing?

Mom is doing very well. Thanks for asking. She now takes Celebrex and tramadol for residual arthritic pain. The goal of the surgery was to reduce lumbar spinal stenosis. It was successful, and she can now walk for much longer distances.

If don't mind me asking age bracket?

She is 78 yrs.

> So glad she tapered off with Tramadol.

She was able to take oxycodone and tramadol at the same time, although dosing had to be separated by a minimum of four hours. Without the tramadol, I don't know if she would have been able to discontinue the oxycodone so easily.

> About three years ago my Neuro Spinal doctor wanted me to take Tramadol but refused the med as had read they didn't go with any AD most likely was SSRI.

Tramadol inhibits the reuptake of serotonin, so I guess there is concern that serotonin syndrome is a possible adverse effect when it is combined with a SSRI.

Are you taking anything for pain?
