Common Questions and Answers about Can i take suboxone with ultram

suboxone

I know that when I told my doctors that I used it as a bridge between times when I could get Oxy, they looked at me like I was nuts. I don't even know if a doctor would put you on suboxone for Ultram addiction. If I were you, I'd try a very slow taper. Maybe cutting a quarter pill per dose every 2 weeks. Ultram (tramadol is the generic name) has a very long half life, which seems to prolong withdrawals for people coming off of it.
Could I take one ultram with a quater peice of suboxone to help with w/d's??? I am really hurting today!
Gosh, I hope she can do something or i can take something ! I am soooo nervous and excited at the same time about my appt!!!
When I quit with suboxone, I was on tramadol for the weeks prior. It helped tremendously with the w/d's. I also take Effexor, an anti-depressant, so I didn't have to worry about that aspect. Anyway, Sub has been a life saver for me. I now have a career in teaching and don't have to play the "game" anymore.
My question is more to do with ultram. I had some from an old script and found them to help the suboxone withdrawal. I took them for only 4 days, and I only had 11 to begin with. Is there any chance at all this whole "creepy, crawling in my skin thing" is from stopping those when I ran out? I never had this bad, if at all, of a feeling when I quit the subs the first time. Sooo, I'm asuming it is? I read a lot of peoples posts but nobody in the same prediciment. I Ned help.
I have been on suboxone for 3 1/2 months. I take 1mg or half a pill. My question is what will happen if I relapse and start taking ultram? Will the naloxone stop the ultram from re-addicting me? It is a partial opiod blocker how would that make my body react to the possible re-introducing of the ultram? Thank You Sincerely, S.
If your doc giving you the Sub is a good pain management doctor too, they should have alternatives to Ultram. Again, with your history, I would be very, very careful. I don't know the nature of your pain, so it's hard to say. But do all you can before you jump back on any pills... that's the only thing I can suggest, if your pain level can tolerate it. Again - this soon, it very well could seem worse as it may be rebound pain... which should soon get much, much better. Good luck sweety...
I have called and left a message to make an appointment. I figured I might as well post this so I can give you guys updates - just in case anyone wants to try it too. I know that I can no longer do this on my own and if I do not have to feel the brunt of the w/d's more power to me right? So that is my plan. I will let you guys know how it goes tomorrow. Hopefully I can get in tomorrow!
keep in mind that suboxone is a long term treatment, it is not something you can walk away from without suffering great pain in my experience suboxone wd was harder than my actual drug of choice it actually took longer too but i wasnt ready to give up a chemical peace of mind, so it served its purpose, i am asuming you are on here for a family member, its really their choice how long they take the suboxone the problem i see with rehab doctors sending patients home with a suboxone prescription is
It was all mental with me and one I got over that I could take it twice a day. I got pregnant when I was on the suboxone and I had to be switched to methadone which I wish they never did. I'm in the process now of switching back to suboxone. I hate being on methadone, its the wors thing ever! Do you know anything about switching from methadone to suboxone? I've been trying to figure out the best way to do it. Any info would be appreciated!
healthmueller Yes, you can take a percocet about 8-10 hours after taking suboxone, I have done it and it works fine, other people say you will get sick as a dog, but that is not true, because they have never tried it, that is just what the doctors tell you because they don't want you to know you can do this. I am currently on suboxone maintaince, and don't do percs anymore, but I used to get sobo's on the street and take opiates later in the day and they worked.
Im scared to take Suboxone but then I cant seem to get off the Vics on my own. If I am on Sub for a short time (2-3 months) and taper slowly, will i go through a worse withdrawal than I would just going off of vicodins? The nurse I spoke to told me that I will go through some withdrawal but its not the same (as bad) as it would be withdrawaling off of oxys, percs or vics.
I didn't get a buzz on the percs other than pain relief, So it was back on with my life and suboxone. As I said suboxone is only a partial opioid antagonist.
A few months ago I had to get some serious dental work done and I explained to my dentist that I could not take narcotics and so he prescribed me Ultram. To make a long story short, the withdrawal symptoms that I feel when I am out of Ultram are far worse than I felt with Lortab, Percocet, etc. I tried suboxone for these withdrawals and felt completly wiped out and dizzy. I thought Ultram was safe and non-addictive. Apparently I thought wrong.
Scared, scared, scared. That's all I can see to think everytime I take another Ultram. I am 37 years old and have been on Ultram for over 2 years now. I'm very scared, but I am trying so hard to get off this drug. I love it and I absolutely hate it! I have tried several times to go a couple of days without it and I get such anxiety, worry, the chills, paranoia, forgetfulness, insomnia something horrible, etc., that I just think well, if I just take 1 or two a day, I can beat this thing.
but physically i feel like im gonna die. My QUESTION is this. if I take 1 ultram today will it stop the obvious physical withdrawal I am going thru from Ultram?
I, too, have been taking Tramadol for a year. I buy them on-line (180) and take 8 per day. Because I can afford it, I keep doing it, but I am so ashamed. I started taking them in late '07 at the time of a loved one's death, b/c the stress was making my colitis act up terribly. My MD wanted to count my pills, but because I was angry at that, my spouse suggested I get them off the Internet, which I happily did. Now, I am terrified of of withdrawal.
I have been on ultram for 4 years...prescribed the max dosage of 300 mg/day...because of severe recurring back pain following a gastric bypass in 2003 with a 185 lb weight loss. Whether that is the cause of my back problems or not...the pain is still there. I was sent to a local pain management clinic by my family MD- where, of course, I was increased to Ultram (300 mg/day) AND Loratab (30 mg/day) in addition to many other things.
Thanks for responding. I was wondering if I can take Vic's with Ultram yes. Why do you say there is no point in taking both? I dont want to go off the Vic's, but would like to cut down and was confused as to taking both and having WD symptoms. I havent taken any Vic's this morning,in place of them I took an Ultram 50mg and about 3 hours later took another. I want to take a Vic to get the "get up and go" feeling.
I'm on ultrex (ultram with tylenol) 2 50mgs 2-4 times a day..I limit myself to 2x day...I don't get a high, I don't get a buzz and get only slight relief from it. I'm dreading having to go to the dentist tomorrow for a couple of withdrawls (in prep for dentures) and him saying "oh..you have ultram at home..you don't need anything else because they just don't help much..but my PCP's practice (a large one) will not prescribe opitates any longer and they send you to a pain clinic.
They NEVER told me about this when I started at the clinic and I only found out by overhearing a nurse talking with another patient. With my bowel disease, I can NOT take motrin, aspirin, and lots of other such drugs.....they put me into horrible flares and bleeding, then surgery. I have a test set for a colonoscopy in 2 weeks time to see how bad I am inside and if any more damage has been done in addition to what is already there.
I have no idea where my will power is coming from but I'ts there and i'm pretty proud of myself. I know I can do it this time. Trust me my brain keeps telling me to take one more pill, just one more but I will no longer listen to my brain. I'm stronger than that. I also take 10mg flexeril and excedrine migraine and it helps me out some, not alot but definitley some. I also take Benadryl at night to help me sleep. I hope you do well. I feel for you. I know exactly how you feel.
Since ultram (tramadol) is non-narcotic can I use it to get off suboxone? I am down to 1.5 mg of sub per day but get withdrawals after 24 hrs. I know ultram can be addicting but if I use it for maybe 5 or 6 days to replace sub will I avoid sub withdrawals altogether. I figure if I quit sub c/t it will probably take about of week of withdrawals. Will ultram help avoid withdrawal altogether? anybody know??
I take Suboxone for pain due to too many past problems with addiction. I'm wondering If I could take Trammadol at night, long after I have taken my last dose of Suboxone? Since Trammadol is NOT an opiate, would there be any adverse effects? I've read some questions and answers in this forum and people are talking about Trammadol as it is a Opioid, which it IS NOT! Anyone who is in the know on this question know any answers to this?
I wasn't on Ultram, but was on several other pain meds with my last pregnancy - I can safely assure you that you're baby should be just FINE!! If if can get by with less that's even better, and means less or no w/d's for baby. My child didn't experience any w/d's at birth. Do you plan to breast-feed at all?? If so, and the baby did have w/d's, it would probably help baby get through the w/d's a little easier - just so long as your docs aren't already treating him/her with other stuff, too...
I am waiting for approval from my insurance co so that I can go to the pain management clinic. I hope they can help with this. I did write out a taper plan for the next month. I hope it helps instead of going cold turkey. What do you think? What about suboxone? does taking it help in anyway?
I have it and I can tell the difference in energy levels taken with a multi vitamin. I take 2 in the morning with my vitamin. It has to have the "ECGC" in it, so I am told. You are suppose to take 1-2 tabs twice a day. I only take the 2 as I have a severe anxiety problem and cannot have all that much caffiene, or caffiene related anything, LOL. So I keep that metabolism stuff to a minimum for fear of my panic attacks.
Can anyone tell me if it is ok to take ultram to help with the withdrawls of suboxone. I have been on suboxone for little over 3 months and only taking 2mg the first month the last 2 months only taking 1mg and now for the the last 2 weeks only taking .5mg but want to stop hoping i can take some ultram when it gets to bad along with some clonadine, just for the first couple of days.to get me fast the worst of it so i can still keep working and get some sleep at night.
I really want to quit these pills and dont want to trade in one addiction for another? Should I get the Ultram and use it to just get through w.d, will I go through w.d again after I stop using the w.d, any help woulf be appreciated... Oh, and hello alll....
