| | Lexapro with Tramadol
All I can say is, don't do it. My doctor prescribed 150mg Tramadol for back pain when my back went out. I have been on Lexapro 10mg for about 8 years for being bi-polar and depression. The Lexapro is fine by itself, but when I started taking the Tramadol with it, all hell broke lose for me. I felt sick to my stomach, weak, sickly, very depressed and all round rotten. I know it had to the be combination of the two meds. I told my Doctor who told me to stop taking the Tramadol, so I did, then I started feeling withdrawal symptoms. Even though I took his advice and went to half dose, then 1/4. I felt like I was gonna die. I didn't want to get out of bed, I have never felt that bad in my life. Then I see an article online on WebMD warning of using the two, so I chewed my doctor out for it... all the good that does. Anyway.... Beware!!!!
