Customer Question

I am taking medrol with Tylenol for back pain; I want to know if I can take Tramadol with the medrol instead of Tylenol.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: Metroprolol, lisinopril and livola; recently started medrol following an accident in France 2 weeks ago. I have had an mri but am waiting to find out the results which won't be until next Wednesday. I would like to see if I can replace the tylenol with tramadol and hopefully get relief from the pain.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No; I think the mri will show some deterioration in the lower discque area; my pain is in the upper and groin area of my left leg.
