224049 tn?1204594715 Hi, I just learned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>same</span> thing about Ultram... rats.... I went through pretty heavy w/drawels a while back. This is a drug that you MUST taper down from and if possible get a Dr.'s assistance. Crazy thing is, it's not listed as a narcotic nor is it supposed to be addictive, but, then again niether is coffee !! I myseld do not expeirience the euphoria of the drug, but I do however get energy from it. When I go off the Ultram I am totally drained and exhausted.
Avatar f tn I have had a laporoscopy a few years ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that helped, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then having a child helped also, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> doctor thinks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> endo is growing back (on the ultrasound he showed me a snow fall looking image that he said is a sign the endo is back). I'm just frustrated because I was out of work for a day or two last month, same thing again this month. I keep telling myself that there are people out there that have much worse problems then i do, so i should just suck it up, but, i guess it's hard.
175688 tn?1297560247 also its says right in the drug info on it that it is habit from and should NOT me used by people with addiction problems here is some of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> insert info <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> may be habit-forming <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> should be used only by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> person it was prescribed for. tramadol should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.
Avatar f tn Until he realizes there is a problem though <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> only thing you can do is along with other family or friends confront him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> most likely that will cause a whole new set of problems such as anger and resentment. You @ this point have to think of you. Speend some time away from him and let him know you are not going to just watch him kill himself this way.
1649704 tn?1402782037 My body went crazy within 12 hours of the last Ultram. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it got a lot worse. This is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> 13th day off of Ultram <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I still feel horrible. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> first 3-5 days was a nightmare. Very high anxiety level, depression, nausea, chills, profuse sweating, tremors, cramps, skin crawling sensation, and an overall weakness. I still am having trouble sleeping more than a few hours at a time.
Avatar f tn Yes being that you are an addict <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> worst thing you can take its highly addicting and hell to come off on .
Avatar f tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> (Ultram) is a mu agonist that is substantially less potent than morphine as an analgesic (more than 100 fold less active). This product also has peripheral analgesic actions. tramadol has high oral activity and is metabolized by cytochrome-mediated oxidative-O-demethylation to the corresponding 3-phenol which is more active than the parent drug. the phenol is glucuronidated and eliminated.
Avatar n tn I want her to know her real dad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> one on Ultram. You have to be strong. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pain is bad from w/d but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> lack of that happy feeling we got from ultram is the toughest. People say it will return, but it is slow to coming. I hope you choose to do this and stop the ultram. It will probably be the hardest thing you have ever done but, you sound like me.......I want to feel real things again and break free from this stuff. STAY STRONG!
Avatar n tn It is better to cut out a small amount from each dose of the day than to cut out (as an example) 2 pills from 1 dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> leave <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> other doses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>same</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> whole idea with this plan is to cut back in VERY small steps so that you will not have any physical withdrawal symptoms. Now, your assignment is to get out a pen and paper and do the math. Put your plan in writing. Line out exactly what you are taking now and exactly what each phase will be for you.
Avatar f tn I haven't read any of the other responses, so forgive me if this is a repeat of what someone else has already said. Ultram <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> are both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>same</span> drug. Ultram is a brand name, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tramadol is the name of the drug itself. the product with tramadol and tylenol in it is called ultracet.
Avatar f tn the doctor new I was a recovering addict <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>/Ultram wasn't a narcotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was fine for me to take,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pharmacist said the same thing.A couple of weeks ago I stopped KT and went throw very bad withdrawals I lasted 7 days with out the tramadol and my W/D's where getting worst for me and I caved and started taking them again.I take 10 to 12 -50MGS a day dose any one have any thing they've tried that helped with the withdrawals of "Ultram"?????
Avatar n tn there are quite a few members with much experience with this drug.But,yes it is addicting. there is also a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>/ultram forum to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> right in blue printing. Click on that.
Avatar f tn I understand how you feel. I am almost 38 weeks pregnant and taking tramadol. My OB said I could ONLY take tylenol but it didn't work and I called them and they said "consult with your primary" My primary said the tramadol was the safest thing and prescribes 50-100mg every 4-6 hours as needed for pain. I have suffered with chronic pain for a long time and tramadol worked for me without keeping me drugged.
Avatar m tn I know both the regular opiates as well as Tramapuke are agents of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> devil, but I really think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> is worse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> detox is somewhat longer than with traditional opiates. I think the PDR has finally upgraded the dangers of tramadol, but it is taking the medical community a while to catch up. My father can't sleep without one tramadol at bedtime. He says they do nothing for his pain, but he could not deal with the w/d of not sleeping so he is resigned to taking for life.
Avatar f tn I sit with a fan on me when at home <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> at work, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I live in Wisconsin. This is just such a hard thing to get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not to sound so cliche, it helps to talk to someone. I haven't talked to anyone until coming to this site. I am here with you and it will get better.
Avatar f tn It's day three <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am feeling very very depressed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> anxiety is so bad I'm having terrible panic attacks. So what does my doctor do, prescribe me Lorazepam for the anxiety. Really, aren't those addicting too. Obviously my doctor is a major pill pusher. I won't take the Lorazepam because I researched them and found that they are a different kind of classification but people become just as addicted to them as opiates.
Avatar m tn they just made me forgetful and tired, but I still had racing thoughts in my mind <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> anxiety. I have smoked weed for a couple years now, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that was always <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> only thing that helped, but it didn't cure it. After all the frustration of getting no relief from the many different meds I had tried, I eventually got into Oxycontin, which literally made me feel normal.
Avatar m tn What I am embarking on is a big thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a long, complicated process (dealing with so many issues), but I'm TIRED of slaving to painkillers, tired of being TIRED every day, tired of not even remembering how to play let alone how to ENOJY playing ANYTHING with my kids... I'm tired of having NO FEELINGS... If anyone can relate (as I mentioned initially) IS there or HAD BEEN there, please help.
684012 tn?1227994056 I'm surprised that your physician has prescribed you vicodin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ultram together as that is a high dosage of pain medications. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> bumps you are experiencing is likely an allergic reaction, so please be sure to mention this side-effect to your doctor. I hope she can work with you and find a combination that will relieve the pain. I certainly can relate to feeling like a pin cushion. Take care of yourself and keep us updated.
Avatar f tn I could go on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on but sound like you are going through <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>same</span> thing. You should be on day 24 now? I'm still one step behind. Hope all is well. Stay tough!
Avatar n tn my experence is to use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> ultram for week to help with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> vike withdrawl week 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> valiums at night week 1 for sleep, then cold turkey after that. taking thomas's receipe the whole time is very helpful.
Avatar f tn they say its not as addicting has a real narcotic but it is a synthetic narcotic so I would say basically your brain would think that its <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>same</span> thing. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have taken it on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> off for years. I have had scripts, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my mom has given me some for pain and so on. But I use to take them just for the hell of it when I was young because they would give me entergy and i would feel good on them. then I felt like I would have to take more and more to get the effect.
Avatar f tn the best advice I can give you about getting off of tramadol (I'm over 150 days off of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>) is to get as much information as you can about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> drug you are on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> various ways to get off of it. and a good place to start for this is going to a thread titled "EmilyPosts Day 45 Again Cold Turkey tramadol Withdrawal". If you google "tramadol withdrawal" this will be one of many links to choose from.
Avatar m tn Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> welcome! This is an older thread that you are posting on. If you go to the top of the page and hit the orange 'post a question' link you can start your own thread to tell your story, ask questions, and get support. More people will be likely to see it and respond so you can get all of the help and support you deserve. I don't have personal experience with tramadol, but there are many on here that do. Please stick around and start that post! Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn I was in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>same</span> boat as you. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> IS a narcotic, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> you can get addicted to it. I had to change doctors <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my new doctor told me that tramadol is a narcotic, is very addictive, and does not help pain much and has too many side effects, including seizures. In May of 2008, Sweden moved it onto their controlled substances list as a narcotic. It stimulates the same MU receptors as narcotics do. I would dump it and try something else. Half a tablet won't do much for you...that is 25mg.
Avatar n tn BUT IF YOU LIVE CLOSE TO CANADA OR MEXICO, YOU CAN GET IT. BURPRENORPHINE IS AN ANTOGONIST/AGONIST. WHICH MEANS IT WILL TAKE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> AT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> same TIME REPLACE YOUR OPIATE RECEPTORS WITH the LESS ADDICTIVE BUPRENORPHINE. the W/D'S FROM BUPRE are NOT BAD and IT'S the ONLY OPIATE THAT'S EASY TO TAPER, YOU'LL ACTUALLY WANT TO TAPER BECAUSE theY JUST MAKE YOU A LITTLE SLEEPY WHILE EXPERIENCING NO WITHDRAWALS.
673432 tn?1226031779 I am 41 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have never been arrested before. That is before i met <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>. If you happen to read <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> side effects of tramadol it actually says that you may perform illicit behavior to obtain the drug (lol) ain't that the truth. Sorry for the long post!!! Hope some of my rambling helped.
Avatar n tn and I'm wondering if tramadol is stronger, the information I've found on this drug conflicts and I'm just wondering if you could tell me if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> would be stronger than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> drug i'm currently using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wether it is adictive. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> what type of drug is it, the only type of drug which helps my pain are narcotics nothing else does anything.
1349329 tn?1276988802 I hope your sister will be okay~~~~Having a family member who is ill is very emotionally draining. I am still so shocked by all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> that is being prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> doctors not telling of all the dangers. You wonder what it will finally take before this med is discontinued.....
348629 tn?1212329273 I'm on day 6 and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> thing that has helped me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> most is I've worked out like a mad man every day. Getting those endorphins going will be a huge help. We're here for you buddy!
