Coming at you we've got another outstanding Clinical Problems in Consultation Psychiatry (CPCP) presentation by senior medical students, this time covering a basic review of serotonin syndrome and the role of the analgesic tramadol in serotonin syndrome. Unfortunay, this is not a rare problem in the.
Dr. Dr. Adam. Michele Morais leads off with the presentation of literature which tends to show there’s very low to no risk for bleeding with use of SSRIs. We had a complicated Clinical Problems in Clinical Psychiatry (CPCP) recently presented by two talented psychiatry residents about selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and the risk for bleeding.

Serotonin syndrome (also known as “serotonin toxicity”).
It has been a popular choice for treating pain because it is safer than other opioids, due to its lower potential for dependence and lower propensity to cause respiratory suppression. Most cases of serotonin syndrome reported in patients taking tramadol occur when tramadol is combined with other serotonergic agents, especially those that inhibit CYP2D6, including antidepressants. Combining tramadol with certain serotonergic medications is contraindicated because of the risk of serotonin syndrome. As a racemic mixture of (+)-tramadol and (−)-tramadol, the medication's (+) and (−) enantiomers can inhibit serotonin reuptake and (−)-tramadol can promote serotonin release. 5-Hydroxytryptamine, or serotonin. As with almost all medications with serotonergic activity, tramadol can cause serotonin syndrome. Tramadol is a phenylpiperidine medication structurally related to codeine and morphine. Opioids have been known to contribute to the development of serotonin syndrome. Clinicians should counsel and closely monitor patients when starting or increasing a serotonergic agent alongside tramadol.

Patients treated with antidepressants, As tramadol exerts serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibition, this may put patients exposed to serotonergic agents at higher risk for serotonin syndrome. While the use of antidepressants and tramadol may be safely used concomitantly, use particular caution with MAO inhibitors.
That’s a great question! I believe that everyone taking care of the patient truly wants what is best for the patient. I hope by simply having a respectful conversation with any provider about why a particular medication was chosen and your thoughts may be enough. The provider may have a reason why he/she chose a specific medication or may change their mind in light of new information provided by you!.

1–4. While tramadol may be an effective option for mild to moderate pain in otherwise healthy individuals, the following patients may benefit from an alternative analgesic selection. Tramadol exerts its analgesic effects through weak stimulation of the mu opioid receptor as well as inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine similar to some antidepressant medications. Tramadol is a popular agent for the treatment of pain and offers an alternative to opioid therapy.
