I normally use tramadol when my pain is really bad, which luckily is not often. Now however i am on an antidepressant called Mirtazapine. I googled it and read about an interaction with tramadol. Apparently it can cause convulsions and high temperatures ect. Now this is not my GP's fault. I forgot to tell her about my tramadol when i registered the other day. The tramadol isnt on pescription as such. I just get a months supply of it as and when i need it.
So i need to change painkillers, any recommendations? Tramadol is fab, and i have the 50mg tablets. One of which knocks me out.
