Re: Cymbalta and Ultram together?
I have had doctors weigh down on both sides of this. I had one doctor who said they should never be prescribed together, and then other doctors act like it's no big deal. I think it does raise your risk, but the issue is how much. If the chances are raised from one in a billion to one in a million, it's still a pretty small risk, especially if you are getting relief from the medications. I take tramadol (300-400mg per day), and Effexor (which is very close to Cymbalta, and carries the same seizure risk). I talked with my doctor and we decided that we were willing to take the risk.
