Is It Safe To Take Tramadol & Gabapentin Together?

Is it safe to take a tramadol and gabapentin together? Can anyone help?

Answer

According to my research, these two drugs have a 'moderate' interaction together. This is because both drugs depress the central nervous system. Taking these drugs together can make you drowsy, impair your coordination, etc. These drugs can be taken together but only under a doctor's care.

If you have other questions about drug interaction, your pharmacist is a great person to call. And, of course, your doctor should be aware that you're taking these medications together.
