Does anyone know, when they're talking about serotonin syndrome, do they mean flat out do NOT take Tramadol ever when taking Cymbalta, or are they referring to regular users of both medications concurrently? Thanks in advance for any help :-D


  • or the pharmacist. Drug interactions can be serious and lethal in some instances.

    I have all of my medications & suppliments saved in one of those online 'medication interaction' checkers. When I add a new med (prescription or natural) I add it just to make sure there's nothing that's been missed by my doc & pharmacist. I've had some terrible reactions to meds that others have no problems with & vise versa. We're all so different. Unfortunately there's trial & error in finding the best combination of meds for us. Always keep an eye on symptoms & contact your doc if anything doesn't seem right...
    Osteoarthritis & DDD.
  • I was told that I had a risk of serotonin syndrome when I was prescribed Tramadol while already taking 100mgs of Sertraline a day. I'm currently taking both without problem, but am mindful of this possibility.
