The combination pain medication containing dexketoprofen 25 mg with tramadol 75 mg was effective, and more effective than either alone, in the treatment of acute post-op pain.

Comment: To decrease opiod use, we are going to have to come up with other safe and effective pain medications. Using a combination of an NSAID with tramadol appears to work well, and is associated with a low rate of side-effects.
