Can Percoset and tramadol be taken together? Is that safe?

Customer Question
Can Percoset and tramadol...

Can Percoset and tramadol be taken together? Is that safe?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

My Mother in Law is taking Percocet and she has run out. Her doctor is trying to wean her off of the Percocet and she is in extreme pain now. She has Tramadol and wants to take it but I am not sure she should. She has an appointment Monday at 9:50, but is not sure she can handle the pain until then, and she doesn't want to go to the hospital. She is 91 years old, has been on Percoset for a couple of years now. She also has the low dose Fentinil patch she reapplies every 3 days.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It's not me, it is my mother in law. She has been in pain for years. She has a degenerative back disorder. She has a burning and sharp pain constantly in her lower back and down her legs.

I don't have $50.00 to call you. I'm sorry. I will check with another pharmacist.
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 11 months ago
Thanks for clarifying.
Taking Tramadol at this time will be no problem at all. No safety issues there.
Do you have any further questions?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
