    Medications that are dangerous
    lee817 posted:
    Hi everybody....just as a heads earlier I was having a terrible day of severe pain. Felt like a giant firecracker went off inside my body. I didn't want to take my stronger pain meds (10mg loritab) so I took one of my older Tramadol 50 mg. About a hour later a friend stopped by to visit and I suggested a glass of wine. A hour and a half later a terrible bout of depression came over me. She had left and I broke down crying and felt like my world was falling apart. I pulled it together took a walk it's beautiful out today and just about a hour ago I'm coming around to feeling ok. That's scary!!! 1 glass of wine with tramadol...NOT a good idea. It concerns me.

    Was there not a warning on the bottle about this?

    There's a warning on every bottle of medications to be aware if you mix with alcohol. I have been dealing with this for a year now but hadn't taken my Tramadol but once before. This was a odd situation and I never have had a reaction with any other meds like this time. I rarely drink so this was just a heads up for anyone who has started Tramadol stay away from alcohol it's not a good combination even if one drink only.
