I saw my NS today and was telling him about the pain I was in and the problems I was having and that I was currently trying to avoid Norco and taking more Ibuprofen. Well he is referring me to Physical Therapy (yeah, I'm hoping it helps me out) and also massage therapy and prescribed me Tramadol. He said to take it every 6 hours everyday as it is not an 'as needed medication' like Norco or Ibuprofen. Anyone with any experience with this medication and whether it will provide some relief.
Hi Cathy! I used to take Tramadol and Norcos, and I can tell you that you should NOT try to come of the trams cold turkey! I dont know how much your taking, but the trams have an anti-deprssant in them as well so you can risk having a seizure if your taking alot of them and come off to fast. Not to mention the w/d's s uck!! My best advice is talk to your Dr. about coming off the trams ie: a slow taper.
Unfortunately, there are side effects with every medication. Personally, I am not a fan of Tramadol as it can be very difficult to come off and I think there are much better both long-acting and shorting-acting meds that can be used.
He has me bend over and walk on my toes and on my heels and I mean it does'nt hurt like a sharp pain so I have mobility but after standing for a while or sitting down for a while my back get real weak and I feel like it's real tired and worn down when I use to have the Ultram it would take the pain away but I was taking too much and if I take some type of narcotic I know for sure that I can manage it and only take my recommended dose but I know that I will be hooked sooner or later but it's not
I have tapered down considerably over the last 2-3 months. I take the film and was on just a sliver a day. Roughly .25-30 mill per day. I want to get off completely. About a week ago, I found an old prescription of Tramadol, written by my chiropractor so not even a controlled substance. I thought tramadol was like ibuprofen or aspirin, no big deal. On Sunday, July 20th, 2014, I took two tramadol tablets in a.m. 50 Mill each.
the more i have the more i take. then when they are gone, i flip out. i dont think i can perform my job duties. its like i dont have the "energy". i wish i wouldve never started taking pills. it is the most addicting thing i have ever done.
The trial is the Iscomatrix Core Vaccine run by a company called CMAX, if you google it there may be more information. Ill let you know how i go, but all i can say at this time is that I have a lot more energy, not sleeping all the time, less tired, there have been no sx from this vaccine, just pain/swelling and redness in the injection site on the arm.
Has anyone else switched to Tramadol? With the Darvocet dose I've been on, can I expect severe withdrawal symptoms? Thanks for your input.
I have never been addicted to anything at all before these pain killers and then I have really bad pain and asked my DR is there anything better I can take besides Advil 800mg Anti-inflamitories and Tylenol that I will NOT get addicted to. I WAS LIED TO, OR MIS-INFORMED whatever you wanna call it and now it is just as addicted as the Lortabs and Vicoprofen. I would say that it is slightly worse, which is pure hell.
Hi, I just had a total thyroidectomy done 7/25 and the doctor gave me Tramadol for pain. It did not help me at all, and in fact seemed to start some problems that I hadn't had before and also made pain worse, and so I disposed of them. Now I have back of neck & head migraines that are hanging onto me all day long, and Tylenol doesn't help. I've been told not to take Ibuprofen.
If so, why can you only take Tramadol for a short period of time? I was just switched from Tramadol to Ultram. Not sure if I should start this script or just stick with the current Tramadol. I used to be on vicodent and did ok, however after surgery they gave me percocet and had pounding heart, chest heaviness and my 1st anxiety attack. These drugs are scary but cannot use anything with asprin as my ears ring and I get uclers. Any advice?
I am a Nurse, a mother and a wife. I know abot drug addiction. I thought I was being good by taking Tramadol because it is non-narcotic. I was up to about 200 mg three times a day for back pain from an old car wreck. Three days ago I had a seizure and stopped breathing. My poor husband had to give me cpr, and my sweet 10 year old boy saw it all. I am so ashamed. I was taken by ambulance to ER. Got the CAT scan and EEG. have an appt.
Since stopping the Tramadol, I CANNOT sleep and as someone else on this board described, I feel like I have the energy of a 120 year old man. So if anyone else is thinking of dieting (especially as drastic as the yeast-free diet) and getting off of Tramadol at same time, DON'T DO IT. With that said, I'm in day 5 off of the Tramadol and thinking I might as well tough it out. Threw the rest of my Tramadol out. How much longer can I expect to not sleep?
No thank God, and never will again! I think that because of the relatively short duration of my taking it (6 weeks+/-,) and maybe because I didn't go over the "recommended" dose, that one 8-day period of HELL is over and I am feeling more or less normal again. However, I am very weak from all of the GI problems and sleep disturbances during that heinous withdrawal.
I have been on 90mgs a day since Feb. I used to take 16 to 18 tramadol a day and could not w/d by myself. Can anyone tell me why, when i took 4 tramadol one day last week, I thought I was going to DIE with horrible aches and pains all over my body? What other drugs mixed w/methadone will cause this reaction? Thanks for any info.
can i get out of tramadol in home with another drug like brufin panadol and nero drug for my tierd can i and how much it will take so plz help me thanx
I cant take halves because it is powder capsules but I will have some dinner then take one and see how I go, I will keep signing in when I can and let you know.
I think some of the face flushing and sweats are from hot flashes still, but that seems like a mightly long time for that to go on. I can go to the grocery store and by the time I walk up and down one aisle with a buggy, my hair is dripping wet, my face is soaked, and sweat is dropping off the tip of my nose. It's so ridiculous and so embarrassing. The thing that makes me so angry is that I never even so much as took a Benadryl for sleep or ANYTHING other than vitamins my entire life.
It worked wonders. I had energy, no pain, and happiness. But I began to notice that I had to take almost 8 pills a day to feel good. So I tried to stop. I cut dosage down little by little. I felt like ****. My body had this 'rushing' sensation of anxiety and aches. So now I have to take at least 1 pill a day just to feel normal. I stopped for 2 weeks altogether, but everyday I felt terrible, more so than I did before I started taking the meds.
I am for personal empowerment through information. I am a lawyer who has done consumer protection class action work. I am not filing a Tramadol products liability lawsuit and will not consider a consumer class action because everybody knows that success in a class action comes on the day everybody gets paid to shut up. So I'm going to take a different route here. Let's start with the FDA. Tramadol is an unscheduled drug in the US, except for in the few states that have started to regulate it.
i have blood work done every 3 mths and it has always been normal. i am worried that the tramadol and ibuprofen could damage my liver. i only take 7.5-750mg vicodin. wouldnt it be better to just take the vicodin again?
I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
sorry to be so blunt but ive seen people addicted to aspirin and ibuprofen who would have thought? but the mind is very strong and can lead you to fears thinking if i quit i will have horrible withdrawals ..just dont be afraid and go for it...im sure you will be fine..dont believe everything you hear...its not as hard to quit as oxy and lortab..theres just no physical way PERIOD...Those are STRONG PAIN MEDS...SERIOUS BUSINESS...Tramadol.isnt a class 2 let alone a class 3...
- they never worked for me either - Avisg will take care of you with information on the trams and I bet you (and your Doc) are surprised. They are not as innocent as most Doc's wouldlike to think....
I don't think I can eat. I feel too horrible.
I anticipate only using it 2 or 3 times per week after my physical therapy. How can I safely combine the two? Would it be safe to take 1 tramadol in the afternoon, then take 1 or 2 Percocet at night before bed? Will taking tramadol infrequently cause the withdrawal symptoms I have read about? Thank you for any advice!
Avisg can help you with a tapering plan. You can get off of tramadol and feel great. It may take some time, but, I promise, if you are patient you will be ok. Stay here and post. This forum saved my life.
I hope i am writing to the right community, i have been on tramadol 50mg about 4 -8 a day for about 8mths now and noticed when i didnt take them for a couple of days i would get really nasty symptoms. i looked this up on your sight and seen from other people that i wasnt alone, so i went to my gp and they advised i stopped them either by cutting down or cold turkey.
When in pain, don't worry about your dependency. I do the same thing and lower my dosage and take even less than prescribed. I need Molly around to remind me the same thing. I wish you well and thanks Molly.
