Tramadol, metformin with CKD 3b
I'm posting this in this forum because I'm most concerned with kidney problems. I have some sensory nerve pain that has not eased for some months and as I cannot take Ibuprofen and the like, I wanted to reduce the inflammation that is present and ask the doc if I could take a drug the name of which escapes me at the moment, but he said due to the kidney problem, no. He then prescribed Tramadol at just minimum dosage three times a day as needed for pain. When I picked it up this afternoon the pharmacist came over and cautioned me not to take it within 4 to 6 hours of taking metformin. This makes it rather difficult to decide when to take what. However, an internet search does not show any problems with doing so. What do you think?
