Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and hydrocodone interaction

Tramadol can have terrible side effects. It does for me anyway. And Loretab, which is hydrocodone based, is short acting and is not your best long term choice for chronic pain either.
I also suffer from migraines, arthritis, back pain, and chronic pain and have tried everything affordable to be in better health. In my teens and 20's I saw a rheumatologist and neurologist and was in excellent health for the next decade. From 1992 until the present time, I have been in poor health.
This puts patients at risk for developing serious, and even fatal, health issues. Last year at the WAISMANN METHOD®and Domus Retreat, we treated about the same number of patients for addictions to Norco as we did for Heroin, OxyContin or methadone. Although not completely surprised, I was appalled to find out that many of these patients developed a dependency to the drug after they were given a prescription for a very small injury.
the hydrocodone isn't working as well for the pain and i hear that tramadol doesn't give such a high. which in the long run i don't want. just to work without pain. are there reasons or causes for the seizures? any way to reduce the risk, aside from the obvious one to not take them? i'm in a lot of pain and need to continue working. i was told this would be a good alternative since it doesn't give as much as a high and low like hydro or oxy.
I do have severe arthitis pain and am a 51 year old woman. I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage. My goal is to eventually cut down to 4 a day, but have been very uncomfortable at 10. I also take effexor and trazadone for depression, but I am so depressed right now.
About 4 months ago, I became involved in a fairly intense project and was experiencing more discomfort. Without really thinking much about it, I started using tramadol every day and then increased this to 2-3 times each day. The dosage was 100mg, so I was taking 100-300mg daily (or 2-6, 50mg pills) for 3 months. After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW!
I have been on tramadol off and on for 3 years. I say off and on because when the scrip run's out is is usually for about 2 weeks, then I get it again. I sure wish I was strong anough to not get the scrip I have coming in 5 or 6 day's. Tapering off, weening yourself is best way, unless ther is ultra rapid detox, which, I do nont know about you, but I KNOW I cannot aford. I do not have a good support team here to help me. My husband is an alcholic (spledd right of course).
I don't think I've ever taken tramadol. One of my problems is that I have both back pain and nerve pain. I take gabapentin for the nerve pain, which helped some, and have just been prescribed topamax. Dunno if anyone has ever taken the latter but the dose is increased gradually - I have to take it very early in the evening as there are many side effects including extreme fatigue.
Do not substitute Tramadol for hydros. Tramadol is extremely addictive and some here have said they are more difficult to withdrawal from than some other drugs. You can find many threads about the Tram withdrawals. I would just stay the course the way you are now. It will be difficult for awhile, but SO WORTH IT!!! Good luck and you are in my prayers!!!!
I think aspirin works better. They did nothing for me. I'd rather use ice and heat than tramadol which includes Ultram. I've got about 160 of them left and believe me... no wait... {flush} I don't have 160 anymore. I don't need them around and they don't work. Bye-Bye! Ultram!!!

Hi Friends; Holy Mother of Tramadol FOG! Early morning and all morning has been ... the height of suckiness. It got better once I just cried. I felt better after that. I think now alot of the emotional stuff is hitting me. I'm not numbed by a drug and I have 5 years of emotional cellular storage to work thru I think. May I Trust Higher Power to restore me to sanity!? I got an email this morning from my Mother who says she's coming here in September? I can't even think that far in advance.
Hi ChicaBooms! Welcome to our new home!
Two nights ago, which was day 20, I was driving home from work and my Mom called me.She knows about the Tramadol and the withdrawal. She also knew there was something VERY wrong with me while I was on it. But again, because she knew I had chronic pain and a DOCTOR gave this to me, she didn't say anything and wouldn't really have known to say anything about it. Anyhow, at first her voice sounded way too loud. Horribly loud. Like a robot almost. A metallic quality to her voice.
avisg is correct, tramadol is a sythetic opiate. While some doctors will deny it, tramadol is just a addictive and hydrocodone or any other opiate, the withdrawals from it are JUST AS BAD as withdrawals from methadone. I know this from personal experience. It may not be technially classified as an opiate, but it works the same way... tramadol blocks the same receptors in your brain as morphine does.
There is major drug interaction when taking hydrocodone and tramadol together. When tramadol is taken with other opioids, patients may experience additive central nervous system and respiratory adverse effects, such as dizziness, weakness, nervousness or restlessness, and difficulty breathing.
Last year pain a lot worse and used more often. My problem is I really liked the hydrocodone as I felt great and finally had energy and felt like I had a normal life. Anyone know what kind of withdraw I will be going threw, how long? Will butrans help with pain? Will Clonidine help with withdraw? Going cold turkey started patch last night and still have pain after epideral? Any help I really would appreciate. Is there life after hydrocodone?????????????????????
