Citation:   Neveragain. "Tonic-Clonic Seizure: An Experience with Tramadol & Sertraline (Zoloft) (exp61511)". Jun 22, 2007.

100 mg oral Pharms - Sertraline (daily)
  100 mg oral Pharms - Tramadol (pill / tablet)


[Erowid Note: There are case reports of people having bad reactions when mixing tramadol with SSRIs. This may include potentially life-threatening adverse reactions such as serotonin syndrome. See Tramadol Health Concerns]]

I had neck pain from a car accident a few weeks ago and the Dr gave me a script for Ultram - 50mg with the instructions take 2 every 6 hours.

I 2 pills twice daily for 9 days, usually with breakfast. On day 10 I was late for work so I took them with my Zoloft (Same Dr gave me the script) and a cup of coffee.

Two hours later I was at work enjoying my buzz at work and the next thing I knew I was being held down and told paramedics were coming.

I had a tonic-clonic seizure at work. If you're not sure what that is picture: eyes rolling back, legs kicking, arms jerking, spitting, pissing pants etc.

3 days later I am still having blurred vision, muscle tremors, anxiety & an overall shitty feeling.

I went to raves for a period of about 2 years, 5 years ago, during which I did mostly ecstasy and amphetamines -but I've tried almost everything I could get my hands on at the time. Never had a reaction like this before, no family history of seizures either.
