A patient asked me this week if it was okay that she was taking her pig's tramadol (a pain medication).
No one can say that family medicine is boring.
I told her I'd rather she not take it, and happily prescribed her some FDA approved-for-human-use tramadol. Same dose. Same name. Likely the same manufacturer, though I didn't check.
Though really, my best guess is that it's ok. Anyone?
