Discussions that mention prozac

Addiction & Recovery board

Tramadol, according to my pain management Doctor, also has a mild antidepressant in it.
When I began the Tramadol, I was previously taking Prozac at a very low dose and he took me off the prozac, explaining that the Tramadol, would do basically the same thing for me.
He also explained that if there were to come a time, when I was required to switch to a different medication for pain, I would have to be tapered of the Tramadol, because of the antidepressant properties involved, if discontinued it can lead to debilitating depression.
