Acetaminophen Tramadol Interactions

Do not drink alcohol while you are taking acetaminophen and tramadol. Alcohol may cause a dangerous decrease in your breathing when used together with acetaminophen and tramadol. Alcohol may also increase your risk of liver damage while taking acetaminophen.

Acetaminophen and tramadol may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.

Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any other cold, allergy, pain, or sleep medication. Acetaminophen (sometimes abbreviated as APAP) is contained in many combination medicines. Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much acetaminophen which can lead to a fatal overdose. Check the label to see if a medicine contains acetaminophen or APAP.

Cold or allergy medicine, sedatives, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression or anxiety can add to sleepiness caused by tramadol. Tell your doctor if you regularly use any of these medicines, or any narcotic pain medicine.

Tell your doctor about all medicines you use, and those you start or stop using during your treatment with acetaminophen and tramadol, especially:

  • an antidepressant--citalopram, desvenlafaxine, duloxetine, escitalopram, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, milnacipran, mirtazapine, nefazodone, paroxetine, sertraline, trazodone, venlafaxine, vilazodone, and others; or
  • an MAO inhibitor--isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine.

This list is not complete. Other drugs may interact with acetaminophen and tramadol, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this medication guide.
