Has anyone experienced Serotonin syndrome? I think I am hypersensitive to this.
I was taking 300mg Lyrica - Klonopin at night, 5 mg and 50 mg tramadol as needed. I was great at first and then after 5 days I ended up with flu like symptoms. Thought I had the flu. I cut off the tramadol and started back up after "flu" had passed , resumed Tramadol and it happened again.
since then I am torn. When my neck pain becomes intolerable I take the tramadol for relief and then end up with this "mysterious" flu a week or 2 later.
Now last week I had an out patient shoulder surgery and was given Percocet 10/325 and was told to stay off tramadol ( I had not take any for 3 weeks anyway). after 4 days I stopped Percocet and ended up with the 'flu" again. I didn't think I was on that stuff long enough to experience withdrawal. I think I am hypersensitive to these types of pain meds.
any similar stories?
