Advice & Tips
I take this pain killer, and not the Tramadol, when I am going to take the Cyclobenzaprine. My doctor told me that Tramadol has bad reaction with the muscle relaxer, so on days I take it, I have to take Hydrocodone. This painkiller, lie the Tramadol, causes severe constipation and difficulty urinating (I will have the urge, but then I try to relieve myself and am not able to).
