Buprenorphine and tramadol

Common Questions and Answers about Buprenorphine and tramadol

suboxone

Avatar_n_tn Neither are buprenorphine and hydros. Ultram is cheaper and a lot easier to get. The obvious risk is becoming dependent on the substitute drug.
Avatar_f_tn I've had a cranial MRI which didn't show anything and I'm still awaiting LP results for the MS. I've been checked for most things, not Lyme, because it is not active in this part of the UK (it's only in southern counties, not this far north). Just got to keep slogging on I suppose...
Avatar_m_tn Don't feel it is time to come off the Oxycontin. In a lot of pain. Since I came off the Buprenorphine patch, and since I started to reduce the Oxycontin the pain in my knee has escalated. Been on a lot of painkillers for my knee pain but it seems the Oxycontin works the best, although I am still in quite a bit pain. Been on Oromorph, Tramadol, etc. Ultimately it is my decision on what to do but can still ask for suggestions. Thanks for the help with the Buprenorphine patch.
Avatar_f_tn Can I ask why you have been taking Tramadol? At one and a half pills a day it should not be to hard to reduce. Try taking one half a pill twice a day for two weeks then take a half a pill with you in the morning, and not take in the morning until you really need it, go as long as possible before taking. I know this sounds simple but it can be done. I've been dependent on hydrocodone twice, oxycontin once and the last time methadone and that was way herder than any opiate I ever took.
Avatar_n_tn I was given Tramadol and told to take 8 a day and found out yesterdy from my doctor that these are addictive. I am so thankful that I have only been taking these for two weeks. I stopped taking them now for 24 hours but have experienced flu like symptons, sweats and just very werid sensations all day, I don't know how long this will last for? I have read everyone elses exp and I feel so sorry for other people who have been through much worse exp than me.
Avatar_n_tn Now I can try to break away from this tramadol (ultram) I have a full bottle of vicodin and a bottle of valium ... and a very strong survival instinct. Every morning I just hate having to take these 2 1/2 pills to start my day. Today I cut it to 2 1/8 of a pill .... and I felt the difference by nightfall. Tommorrow I watch the kid while they are packing .... and then it begins.
Avatar_n_tn Then I went to a phycologist and talked to her about my eating dissorder and then told her about the tramadol and how it helpped me to curb my hunger. She said that she couldnt help me and that I need to contact a rehab center but it was so hard for me to get up enough nerve just to tell her. No one can help me. Im not the typical addict you know. Im well educated Im married with a small child and we are living in upper class america the big house and everything.
Avatar_n_tn As Hippy stated, and I can VERIFY, Withdrawel from Ultram (tramadol Hcl) can be ABSOLUTE HELL. As far as using Buprenorphine as an agent for tapering down / getting off the Ultram, I'm not so sure that it would be a good Idea.... First of all, we must consider the current amount she is using consistantly on a "Day-to-day" basis.
Avatar_m_tn So my question is, I know buprenorphine is used to help get people off other opioids, can I get buprenorphine to get off Tramadol which is a synthetic opioid? If not buprenorphine, is there anything else that exists that keep withdrawls in check while coming off of Tramadol?
Avatar_m_tn I am sick and tired of taking tramadol... I have been on them for years. I'm almost out of them, I have 9 left to be exact. And cannot get ten filled again until the 23/rd of this month. I so would love to kick this bad habit.. Someone please help...
479459_tn?1246745619 I think a lot of it just has to do with the logistics of getting Tramadol/Ultram... it's just easier to get than scheduled drugs AND it's relatively inexpensive. It's a central opioid agonist even though it isn't technically called a narcotic. Buprenorphine is also an opioid agonist (as well as an antagonist) - so it can be used to the same effect. Also interesting to note that naloxone (and other opioid antagonists) will block the effect of tramadol. Why it's not scheduled... don't know.
Avatar_n_tn does anyone know how long i have to stop taking the deydrocodeine and tramadol for before i can start taking the buprenorphine again please.
Avatar_f_tn Tramadol may cause life-threatening addiction and withdrawal symptoms in a newborn.
352804_tn?1300367154 Fortunately the doctors fix those with the proper medication but the Migraine endures, resulting in Medication Overused Headache and addiction to Tramadol. I began to lower the doses which were on 150 – 200 mg a day and now I’m on 20 mg a day that is quite an accomplishment but the withdrawal symptoms are overtaking me. Is there a way I stop taking Tramadol at last and not to feel the withdrawal symptoms? I appreciate if you can help me.
Avatar_m_tn I've read through 100s of comments and stories of stuggle with the Tramadol addiction, but latest threads are from around 2009, I wanted to know if there are people who are (a) battling Tramadol currently and (b)who have actually managed to GET off and STAY off...?
Avatar_m_tn I am with you on that i did as well with 250 mg a day and tapered myself down as well and suffered no withdrawl at all. I am all for tramadol and they key is lowering the dose. I was at 50 mg for 3 wks and then cut that in half for a few days. Now I have been clean for 1 yr and 5 months.
541465_tn?1219431486 i took 150 mg of Tramadol and 25 mg.of methadone for about 3 years..no withdrawal from Methadone precipitated by the Ultram for me, but everyone is different..in fact in the beginning,the Methadone-Ultram combo was the best high i ever had,but it never lasts and you end up chasing the monkey[high] till you die if you don't get clean..
Avatar_n_tn does anyone know how long i have to stop taking the deydrocodeine and tramadol for before i can start taking the buprenorphine again please.
Avatar_m_tn Both working in the field on both ends - dr and pt - I want to tell you Just Don't **** With Tramadol. Go to suboxone, go to vicodin, oxy, morphine - all of it is safer than Tramadol and in the end easier to get off.
Avatar_m_tn My ignorant self ended up taking a small amount of DHC just to see if it would relieve the withdrawals some but I didnt feel it (to be expected). I also had some tramadol on me and took some of it and to my surprise I actually felt the tram and it got rid of the withdrawal symptoms I felt. I didnt get my sub script filled until the next morning (Tues) but am currently afraid to take any because I took the DHC and Tramadol.
Avatar_f_tn The problem is that I cannot afford the Sub doctor as it is, and I can't afford any more medication. What I have is Sub, and Tramadol, and I am really worried about having a seizure. I mean, I was taking 1000mgs a day and never had a seizure, so maybe I am not prone to them, but it could still happen. I don't want to end up accidentally dying while I'm trying to get better.
Avatar_f_tn Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by & having a read, lets start.... i am a F 27 & and have been addicted to "Tramadol" & "Codiene" for 10 years i was given it by the family doctor for back pain at age 17 just after having my son.

544292_tn?1268886268 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! Fred wrtes, "I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
