Hello. I broke my femur recently and was prescribed 50 mg of tramadol that I take every 6 hours. Is it safe for me to smoke weed while using tramadol? Is it better to wait 6 hours after taking the drug to smoke?

Wait.
It is never safe to smoke weed. With or without tramadol.
U should quit smoking that will be better for you.
Dear lybrate-user, this is the best time for you to stop weed smoking since you are bedridden. Your pain and low mood will be relieved by tramadol - better than weed. Please don't continue tramadol if the doctor stops it. You may become dependent on it. Now to reduce pain, please take it as prescribed.
