Stella,

I'm no doctor but I do have a brother-in-law who has chronic back pain. He takes his Neurontin along with his Ultram. If your doctor doesn't call you soon, call your pharmacy and ask the pharmacist. He'll know if they are compatible.

I'm so happy for you and I sincerely hope that these drugs will help you with your pain.

Good luck!

Hi Stella,

You can find this information at any search engine, by typing in 'drug interactions'. I went to RxList.com to do a quick check for you. According to this website, the 2 drugs (Neurontin & Ultram) are compatible. There is one warning, about alcohol and Ultram. Still, it's only a web site. Too be sure, I'd call your pharmacy, as the others suggested.

Regards, and glad you finally got your meds!
