I am 20 years old, and have muscular dystrophy and a full spinal fusion. I am scheduled to have a lumbar and thoracic myelogram. My doctor is allowing me to continue taking 50 mg of tramadol twice a day, up to the date of the procedure, due to the fact that I cannot easily come off of the medication. I am aware that this increases my risk of seizure. I will be monitored for up to six hours following the procedure in the hospital, and will continue to take my regular dose of tramadol.
Does anyone know if this will seriously increase my risk of seizure? I have no history of seizure in the past.
In addition to tramadol, I will be taking 100 mg of neurontin twice a day.
Thanks for any help!
