Can You Take Tramadol With Phenobarbital In Small Amounts?

Answer

A Drug Interactions Checker on Drugs.com states that these two drugs have a 'moderate' interaction. Both these drugs can depress central nervous system functioning causing you possibly to feel drowsy, less coordinated etc.

The Drug Interactions Checker makes a point to warn you to check with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure that no interactions have been missed.

Here's the warning that they provide:

Using PHENobarbital together with tramadol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
