Is it Safe to Take Celebrex with Tramacet?
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?
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.
