    I was wondering if any one else has tried to take anti inflamatories with any pain meds. I tried an anti inflamatory for an injury once and it worked,,but I was not allowed to take any pain meds...not even asprin. I then got a FM flare up and the anti infl. was not enough so I went back to the tramadol w/o the anit infl.

    Can you take both?

    You need to check with your Dr.

    I took anti-inflammatories with Tylenol 3's. You shouldn't take and Asprin based pain med, as anti-inflammatories already have it and it could cause internal bleeding in the stomach.
