Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and lexapro

I went to pick up my Tramadol for the pharmacy and they said they would not fill because of drug ineractions with the lexapro and said the Dr. would have to sign off on the refill, which she did. The fact that the pharmacy said there were drug ineractions I thought I would quit taking and the fatique has taken over so bad I was unable to work. I decided to take 2 this a.m. and wonder what to do now. I must take my lexapro ~ what should I do now. Any answers would be wonderful!!!!
Switching over to Vicodin from Tramadol and tapering off the Vicodin seems to be working, and I am getting some sleep. I'm down to 9 Vicodin today. Monday I'll go down to 7 a day, and right now the Anxiety isn't so bad. By the end of the week I should be off all Vicodin, and on the road to getting my life back. MadTram, you've been through alot, and I'm sorry to hear of your suffering with this same horrible Sleep Anxiety. The CBT has been helping me over the past few days.
Ultram is nothing more than the Brand name for Tramadol and Ultram ER is a timed release of Tramadol. Ultracet is merely Tramdol and Tylenol in the same pill.
Also I am on seroquel, lexapro, and lamictal for bipolar so I'm hoping because I am those that the mental withdrawal might not be so bad. Is that just wishful thinking or possible? Please share your thoughts and experiences. Thanks!
I had a very demanding job and needed to stay sharp and efficient--and I'm a wuss, LOL! If you feel bad, taper more slowly. And I think you may be right, the AD drugs may keep you from feeling blue while you taper. Fingers crossed for a successful taper for you!
Hi. Has anyone out there been successful coming off tramadol? I have beenbtaking 8 50mg for the past month. I also take seroquel, lamictal, lexapro, st johns wart, l tyrosine all for depression and bipolar. Will I have serious withdrawals if I quit now? Will all my depression meds help soften the blow mentally? Anyone been ok when xeroxing off tramadol??
Even though tramadol is not considered a true narcotic medication and is relatively easily prescribed for pain by some physicians, it is as you have found out quite addictive and difficult to quit. I would only imagine that the physician, who has been prescribing you the tramadol so freely, should be willing to help you out with the side effects of the withdrawals that you are now experiencing.
I also taking seroquel, lamictal, lexapro and l tyrosine for bipolar depression. Do u think the withdrawal from the tramadol will be bad? Should I taper? What should I expect? Please help me. I'm scared. Thanks.

I was on tramadol for three years and it took a whole year to get off the drug, i had withdrawls for a year and they are awful, stop taking the drug as soon as u can, or ask ur doc for alternative
How long will it take if I stay on 6, until I feel normal again? I hate tramadol. I thought with me taking Lexapro, I would be ok but I am not. I pray and pray, and I know God hears me, but I don't know what to do?? I am begging you or anyone to tell me when this hell would be over. When I tried to quit today, I could not sit still and got up every 5 minutes to pee or shake. Please help. Where is the light???
Its a opiod and it has the same potential of abuse but low rates of abuse because people prefer hydrocodones and oxycodones. But tramadol is a little weaker opiod and it also works on your seratonin levels so its little different. So treat it as the vicoden if you are looking at tolerence and addiction. I have bad headaches, migraines and neck problems. No tumor but its pain that debilitates me and i am often left feeling lifeless and sorry for myself.
Ultram (Tramadol) and SSRI’s like Paxil, Zoloft, etc. All drugs mentioned here can easily be googled for detailed information.
How long does Lexapro stay in your systems? I only took it for 2 days and stopped due to serious side effects. I'm in constant pain and can't take NSAID's anymore (stomach ulcer), my neuro prescribed Ultram (Tramadol) - can I take it now or do I need to wait longer? Scared of the serotonine syndrome.... Thanks!
So I'm hooked on tramadol, without which I can't really walk with my back and the detox is hell, and living in a country where I can get them cheaply, without a prescription, at about 50 locations within a 5 minute walk to my house. Good news: they do have AA here! Bad news: NOT IN INGLES, and my lazy butt hasn't learned Spanish yet. I've tried quitting cold turkey a few times and haven't made in more than 2-3 days. I'm still not drinkin though.
Once I found I could buy them online, it was even better. I ordered and ordered and before I knew it, I was taking 18-20 a day for the last 3 weeks before it all came crashing down. I told my wife everything and my pastor too. He thought I should go and get checked in at a Detox center. All that was last Sunday, Nov. 14th. On that day I took 13. They told me I could not detox, but just go home and do it there, becuase since it was not a narcotic, I would be uncomfortable but wouldn't die.
Tramadol is not helping my back pain and it's making me ill. I have been in bed for two days straight now. I stopped taking it but I just want it out of my system. Have you guys ever experienced this?
Thank you so much for the encourgament. I am currently taking Lexapro 10mg and have been before the tramadol was prescribed. What I need is reasurance. I took only 8 today and that is going to be what I taper down to for a while. I went from 18-20 just 3 days ago. I took 15 on Sunday and now 8 today. 8 is where I am staying. I can't control the crying and the anxious feeling. You say that it might get better by day 5, which is Friday?? God I hope so. I can't take this.
What has finally been working for me is that I went to my doctor about my anxiety and depression and started from there. She put me on lexapro and neronton (sp?) I waited for about another month then I started a very slow taper program and kepted a tramadol journal. I also had my husband hand out my pills. He would put them in one of those daily pill dispensers for me. It took me about 3 months to taper (maybe even more I would have to get out my journal for exact time).
I mean I will just take 3 neurontin as opposed to the two and take no tramadol. Yesterday, I only took one tramadol and today I took two. I hate this. My doctor is fully aware of the detox. She just is so sure that tramadol would be easy to come off of. With the way meds hit me she should know better. I surely do not want the withdrawal from the tramadols and I thank you for your help so I don't get stuck with that type of withdrawal!!
I was on 400 Mg Tramadol for 8 months and had to stop cold due to Seritonin issues (Seritonin syndrome) Withdrawal was hell. I have been off it for 10 Weeks and my Doctor just put me on amytriptaline for pain. Can anyone tell me if, once you have seritonine problems can you take other seritonine affecting meds? I am starting to have the same side effects, nightmares, confusion, anxiety, flushing and I'm on a low dose.
However i notice that when i wake up in the morning and don't take a tramadol for hours, i get hot and cold flashes, feelings of aggravation and some other things... i know that my body is addicted to them. I don't want to be on them, but i cant get off them. I don't want to tell my husband or doctor cuz i don't want to be an "addict mother" i need help!!
phenergan is a good drug for the tummy and not habit forming..also helps anxiety and sleep..exercise helps most here..get up and just gor for it/easier said than done but it does work..congrats on 12 days clean..
wed i was able to try some of the some of the animo acids, l-tyrosine and i started abilify plus 12.5mgs ambies with my regular 20 lexapro and 1mg ativan prn. i could only keep protein shakes down till fri. then i was able to eat a small sandwich.appitite still not good stomac aches still bothersome. i got the 5-htp,l-theanine, melatonin, and l-tryosine.
Having pills around and attempting to recover is simply foolish. If you hate them, then get rid of them. You are going to find out the hard way just how much the disease of addiction is mental. I wish you the best and hope it works out for you.
I take Lexapro with it too just one a day but I wonder if the doctors know of a reaction to Tramadol like mine or is it possibly a combo of tramadol and Lexapro. My mom tried tramadol and it does nothing for her pain or for energy. But for me I am just a lightning bug all day and come bed time I am totally relaxed and comfy and fall right to sleep.
The usually side effects with most meds including tramadol include nausea, vomiting or stomach distress. This and most other pain meds may also cause constipation, headache, drowsiness, anxiety, irritability, dry mouth, or increased sweating. Also more rare side effect may include mental confusion, disorientation, seizures, tingling of the hands or feet and trouble breathing. If you notice any of the rare side effects you should notify your physician or pharmacist.
because I have used tramadol in between scrips..(but they never stood a chance)...and then I would get hydros and quit the tramadol... I am on Day 28 from 18-20 hydros a day....and I took 3 tramadol on day 4 and day 5...which did not seem to help with anythings...so I quit taking the tramadol...and had to side effects. I was just wondering, you said that your took tramadol in place of opiates...hydro's, oxy, percs...and went through meth treatment 4 years ago....Just be honest...
I have been clean from Vicodin 5/500mg and Tramadol 50mg for about a week now, and I'm in a long term tapering of Xanax.I have not experienced any discomfort from the Xanax withdrawal due to the slow tapering process but since two days ago and today is the worst, I have been feling severe migraines and severe pain in the muscles of my back and neck, specially arund my shoulder blades, where some " knots" are forming and are very painful to the touch.
Hi, I have a question, new to tramadol, and I take 50mg 3 times a day, but I also take lexapro 10mg. is it safe to mix the two? I have been reading post and some of them say the tramadol is a low antidepresint? I am taking the trams to get off the vics, which really have helped with wd.
