Tramadol vs. Prozac

I am presently taking 40 mg of Prozac a day for depression.  After going to a neurologist for carpal tunnel and trigger thumb, he prescribed 50 mg of Tramadol HCL a day for the pain.  Is this safe?  Everything I read about these two drugs, is telling me these should not be taken together.  Should I take the Tramadol or not?  Please help as I have to have something for the pain in my hands and fingers.

I have taken them together with no side effects.  Consult your Dr.

Tramadol is a pain med it is often giving for nerve pain. Did your dr give you both of these meds? If so I would call and just tell them that you read they aren't good together. Maybe they can put your mind at ease.
Best of luck,

If you feel uneasy, I'd either call your doc, or a pharmacist. I have a wonderful pharmacist who's saved my life before by catching an interaction my docs had missed.

Good luck,

I have taken both of these meds before together and had no reaction.  Your pharmacy should catch it if your filling a med that may interact with another med you take and warn you then.
Good Luck

I don't know about taking them together, though I have taken both at different times years ago.  I never had trouble with the Tramadol even though I was on it quite a while.  But I have heard that some people get terrible withdrawals from it.  I think I would talk to my doctor about that.  I'm finding that a lot of medications you take for granted because they were subscribed but unfortunately there are other things to know.  I feel somewhat misled by some of my physicians that led me to believe I wouldn't have withdrawals if I followed directions when, in fact, they mean that they'll help me get off them when the time comes with minimal withdrawal symptoms.
