Tramadol and ECA


Hi guys,
Long time lurker, but new here. Had a question I hope someone can answer, given there are some very intelligent member here.

I've been using the eca stack off and on for years, and started using it again for a cutting cycle. Last week, I was prescribed tramadol for some consistent back pain I've had from a ski accident last year. I frequently have used 5 htp for better moods, but have stopped because both 5 htp and tramadol act on seratonin. I haven't taken both eca and tramadol on the same day, and am wondering if there is a risk to doing so. I know ephedrine shouldn't be taken with certain anti-depressants, and eventhough tramadol isn't classified as an anti-derpressant, it is sometimes used for depression.

Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.


never take both eca and tramadol on the same day....only if you want to break ur teeth, both simulate the nerve system


If you're asking about chronic use, I would say no, do not chronically use them on the same day. If you're asking, about using one many hours later than the other, on non repetitive occasions, that should be fine. Assuming youre properly hydrated and in proper liver and CV health.


I love tramadol, the medics give it to us after missions overseas.......eassssssss my pain away
