Welcome to justanswer
What you have written is absolutely true
There is a potential for interaction and serotonin syndrome is a possible consequence
You need to discuss having another analgesic with the doctor who has prescribed tramadol for you
Alternative analgesics belonging to class of drugs called non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs can be used as well as paracetamol can be used
You may use paracetamol yourself in dose of 1-2 tablets of 500mg 3-4 times a day if you do not have any liver disorder and if you do not consume alcohol regularly
ok, but don't NSAID's also interact with Fluoxetine?
Yes they can interact with each other but the effect in increasing bleeding tendency is moderate and they can be used under supervision
well, ok, I think I will just stick to Paracetamol until I can see my doctor again.
