Can I use Rybix ODT if I have a history of stroke?

You may be able to take the pain medication Rybix ODT (tramadol) if you have a history of stroke, but before you do, make sure your doctor knows this (and about the rest of your medical history). Doctors use caution when prescribing Rybix ODT and similar medications to patients who have suffered any sort of head or brain injury, including strokes. If your doctor decides that your history of stroke makes taking Rybix ODT dangerous for you, he or she will prescribe a different medication.
