Hope you all had a good day!

Since my Rheumy appointment on 23rd July, I have had to increase my Pregabalin by 120 mg twice a day, and then increase by taking one more at night. Also increased Tramadol from 2 a day to 4 a day.
Don't know how I've got through the last few weeks. I also have another busy two weeks while I get use to the new dose. I feel like a zombie.
Is anyone else on this sort of dosage?
Also MTX is now 20 mg. Felt sick on this new dose. New for me
I read on someone's message some weeks ago that there was a risk with Tramadol. Anyone know about this please?

    I too am taking Tramadol with Paracetamol I was taking 100mg three times a day with the paracetamol. My GP wants me to reduce down the Tramadol she says it's habit forming the trouble is I really do need the dose I reduced it down but have been in a lot of discomfort this past two weeks so I am back to see the GP for an alternative
