flexeril

Avatar m tn 's who prescribe it, do it becuse they belive it not addicting like a opiate based drug. I dont know if Tram is opaite based myself. I am currently in remission of abusing my oxy for chronic pain. I got into this bad habit of snorting them and taking too many and running out early of course. I started my recent refill off correctly this time. Im taking oraly and only as directed and am doing quit well.Great pain coverage and my cravings arnt to bad.
Avatar n tn Freezing- Any opiate withdrawal usually gives you that freezing cold feeling. I can't wait for summer I am always cold!! What helps me temporarily anyways, is a hot-tub if your are lucky enough to have one! My finance' does so I am in it constantly!! If not a nice relaxing hot bath or shower. I drink hot tea & soup that helps too. Keep your feet warm! And wear layers of clothing. At work I dress really warm with lots of layers. J.E.W.
1337425 tn?1278177587 My son is trying to get me to switch over to taking Tramadol, and insists that it's non-narcotic. He's not a kid, he's 32 years old, and is dead set against me using any type of opiate pain killer. I'm 12 days clean cold turkey from 210 mg oxycontin and 40 mg percocet per day. Can anyone answer this question for me so that I can show him?
Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar f tn Told pain management I refused opiate treatment. I will not go back on the evil drug. If you need a support person I'm here and will listen and help in any way.
Avatar n tn As far as the Tramadol, most people don't understand that although it acts on your opiate receptors the same way as Vicodin, or any opiate does, it is a partial antagonist/agonist. This is the reason many doctors prefer it in place of Vicodin or other agonists. Most opiate medications are full-agonists. They bind strongly to receptors and therefore provide pain relief and a side-effect of euphoria.
1322872 tn?1275105462 Hi everyone of my fellow opiate strugglers, My husband and I both have become addicts to any kind of narcotic painkillers that we can get ahold of... Sad to say that it all started with me and my rx's. I was given several prescriptions over the years for vicodin or perc's. I used to be able to take just one 5/500 vic and it would mess me up for a few hours... Now I can take 6 of them at a time and I literally feel nothing but nauseous from all the Tylenol in them.
199177 tn?1332183097 Some facts on tramadol its highly addicting .,Its a synthetic opiate and is not to be used by people who have addiction issues .It is also a double whammy because not only does it work for pain but it also works as an ssri anti depressant . If you abuse it and take more then the max dose you are putting your risk of seizures .The wd coming off this drug is far worse then any other drug I have ever taken. There are hundereds on this board that have been addicted to tramadol .
597547 tn?1251040364 ) and i have about 10 cyclobenzaprine 10 mg muscle relaxers.. (m 751 imprint code) I'm going to try taking a fourth of a sub after i wait as long as i can with nothing, and try to space them out taking a quarter of a sub each time... does anyone know if u can take the cyclobenzaprine with the sub?? also, regardless of the sub, do u thank that they muscle relaxer will help with withdraws??
Avatar f tn I would doubt that any opiate would last a week so this patch is in all likelihood not an opiate which if I understand correctly would be a good thing for you.. According to your mid May post on the Addiction Forum you have struggled seriously with opiates in the past and continue to have strong cravings. You stated you were taking GHB... very dangerous and I do believe it is illegal. I am not street drug literate.
Avatar m tn Is the only WD symptoms u are having the leg pain? Restless legs are associated with opiate withdrawal..I di not have it but many do...I have read all kinds of therapies to help with it...you say neuropathic pain...r u a diabetic?
Avatar n tn Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems. Talk to your doctor about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping the medication. Do not crush the tramadol tablet. This medicine is for oral (by mouth) use only. Powder from a crushed tablet should not be inhaled or diluted with liquid and injected into the body.
Avatar n tn What's so bad about Tramadol is that it's an opiate. Addicts stear clear of opiates,no matter how weak,because they WILL awaken the sleeping monster. Many people have a difficult time withdrawing because Tram also contains an antidepressant. If you increase your Tram dosage you can experience seizures. I think you know all this though... Was the Tramadol prescribed for you? V.
1985289 tn?1328583194 Hun any opiate or semi synethic opiate will just continue to drag out your detox. You did a nice, long slow taper. At some point you will have to totally detox. What withdrawal symptoms are you experiencing now? Yes there will be rebound pain when you detox. It will take a month or two to re-evaluate your pain. Don't let the fear take over, just treat your symptoms. Take it one day at a time. Stay hydrated, eat light foods, keep your mind and body busy. Use immodium.
Avatar n tn Up until recently, I was taking 1 Tylenol #3 at bedtime which helped to lessen the nighttime pain, and in another way, helped to ease the morning pain as well. My new doctor (I recently switched) doesn't believe in long term opiate painkillers, and took me off the Tylenol #3.
Avatar m tn It's used for a variety of things, pain, seizure control, hot flashes, neuropathic pain control for people with fibromyalgia, diabetes. It's even been used for opiate withdrawal, and smoking cessation like welbutrin. The only "bad' thing associated mainly is that it may cause mood changes, depression. But usually in higher doses than you are on.
Avatar f tn It isn't noted as being an addiction risk but the pharmacology also notes that there also have NOT been adequate studies of long term (greater than 4 months) use.... so if it is just being prescribed to get you over the withdrawal hump it is probably fine as long as the doctor is keeping tabs on it. It is a cousin to the benzodiazepines.
Avatar n tn When I came off of sub after about 7 weeks or so (taking 8-12 mgs, and then weaning down to 4mgs for a couple days) my withdrawal started bad on day 2 (skin was crawling, couldn't think straight, plus all the other opiate wd symptoms), while I was at work. I faked a flu and took flexerils/cyclobenzaprine to keep myself asleep for 3 days and then on the 4th day I was completely fine.
1415174 tn?1453246703 But only your physician can give this advice. Flexeril is not an opiate but if you have been taking it regularly you may experience some withdrawal like symptoms. Your body will "look" for this drug... when it doesn't find it it reacts. According to what I have read it's called the "Discontinuation Syndrome." Symptoms include, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, sweats, insomnia, malaise, and a few others.
Avatar f tn Why did you want trammodol instead. A opiate is a opiate if you were addicted to hydro you will be to tram there is no safe way. Not for an addict.

Avatar f tn Just being able to talk to other people who have gone threw it before gives you hope! The opiate withdrawal Day three is the worst then everyday will get better.You only have to do it once!
1349329 tn?1276988802 I was seriously abusing narcotic pain pills, and when I couldn't get those I would take trams to get rid of the withdrawal. There's only one thing that will get rid of WDs, a drug that attaches to the same brain receptors as an opiate. You will read many assurances that tram has a very low strength opiate like affect. But the metabolites (what your liver changes tram into) may be 200 times stronger. I've heard nothing but bad stuff about this drug.

Avatar m tn I'm off methadone 26 days and still am having some of the withdrawal symptoms...leg pain, chills, sneezing...like unreal amounts of sneezing...sweating, and anxiety/depression. Someone once told me, methadone doesn't just leave your body like other meds...."it seeps like sludge"....and I believe every word of it. I do feel better than I did, so progress is being made...slowly. You might also research PAWS if you haven't already. It's some good info. You're doing great btw....
Avatar m tn thats great you are feeling better. many times the fear of withdrawal is worse than the actual withdrawal. take hot baths, use a heating pad, take ibuprofen. you should beable to re-evaluate your pain within the month. did your children come home today? you are doing great. keep up the good work.
Avatar n tn I know this from going to a methadone clinic that also gave out buprenorphine as another solution to opiate withdrawal. My doctor warned me of these drug interactions and to not mix methadone and buprenorphine. Just wanted to clarify to anyone that was reading and thinking about using buprenorphine as a solution to methadone withdrawal. It does not interact with other opiate medications that I know of.
Avatar m tn We cannot ever ever forget that. This taper and this withdrawal will no doubt be difficult, but we can all attest to the fact that addiction never goes away. There is no cure and its always there and you always have to stay on top of it. We have to basically re-learn how to do everything without our drugs. At first nothing will seem right..but ultimately sobriety is the best thing you can ever do for yourself and for your children. Best of luck to you - many blessings!
