A friend of mine was told to go on Pristiq while also being on Tramacet. She was taking 5 tabs daily of Tramacet for months already (having decreased from 2 tabs qid), and is of a small stature. Her pharmacist told her if she would have taken the 2 meds combined that it would have killed her or put her into a coma, even instantly possibly. Her doctor had never done any liver function tests, nor monitored her. She was on Tramadol for severe left sided pain in her head, not yet diagnosed. My question is could this combination have done this to her (cause death or coma)?
