What pain reliever can I take with Celexa that does not have

Customer Question

What pain reliever can I take with Celexa that does not have a drug reaction at all, or minimal?? Tramadol usually takes care of my lower back pain caused from a motorcycle accident 5 years ago, but after doing some research and learning about serotonin syndrome, I am wondering if there is a different, low risk option?

Have you tried anything besides the tramadol?

Ibuprofen 500mg but it didn't touch the pain...I havnt been prescribed anything else but physical therapy which my medical coverage doesn't pay for anymore

Well, there are other prescription antiinflammatories like Celebrex. Mobic, and Indocin. Then there are, of course, the opiates like codeine, hydrocodone. Finally, there's Lyrica.

Your reply is so generic. I am a Registered Medical Assistant with EMT and CNA training. Of course there are other options containing codeine and hydrocodone. My point is, although you can look up any drug and see what contraindications there are with another specified drug, the side effects are as generic as your answer. Example, if someone gets a headache on a trial run of a specific medication, although it may not be cause by the trial med, they have to write it down as a side effect. Apparently I underestimated how knowledeable the peope behind this site are. I was expecting an educated response deteremined hopefully by a clientel populous, not an answer I could have googled.

Sorry if the answer seemed generic, but you initially asked for suggestions of medications that wouldn't involve a serotonin syndrome. I'd be more than happy to spend as much time with this as you'd like, but I need a little guidance as to the exact information you need.
