I have been taking 2 Norco every 4 hours for several years.

I have been taking 2 Norco every 4 hours for several years. Am 65 yo female & have been in pain all my life and taken many drugs. Many bad reactions. My doctor just gave me a prescription for Tramadol HCL 50 mg and wants me to take Norco every 8 hrs. & Tramadol every 8 hours instead of Norco every 4 hours. Do you think this will cause any problems? I also take Dexilant, Librax and 60 mg of Valium daily.

Dr B :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr B :

This is very unlikely to cause any problems, tramadol is similar to norc, but it does not cause the same addiction that norco does

Dr B :

norco*

I am wanting to know regarding the other meds I am taking and interactions.

 

There are no interactions between these other medications and tramadol, they are safe to continue
