Is it Safe to Take Celebrex with Tramacet?

04/09/2008

Question:

Is it safe to take Celebrex with Tramacet for pain. I hurt my shoulder at work and the pain is unbelieveable. T3`s are not working at all for me and I would like to try Tramacet. Would it be safe to take my Celebrex along with Tramacet?

Answer:

Tramacet is a brand of acetaminophen and tramadol. Tylenol #3 ("T3's") is a brand for acetaminophen and codeine. These drugs have similar potency in the treatment of pain.

Acetaminophen and tramadol (Tramacet) can be taken with Celebrex (celecoxib).

Please see a doctor about the shoulder injury and pain to make sure the treatment is appropriate.
