Metabolism of tramadol and M1 is reduced in patients with advanced cirrhosis of the liver resulting in a larger area under the serum-concentration-versus-time to curve tramadol and longer tramadol and M1 elimination half-lives (13 hrs. for tramadol and 19 hrs. for M1). In cirrhotic patients adjustment of the dosing regimen is recommended (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

I was given Tramadol and told to take 8 a day and found out yesterdy from my doctor that these are addictive. I am so thankful that I have only been taking these for two weeks. I stopped taking them now for 24 hours but have experienced flu like symptons, sweats and just very werid sensations all day, I don't know how long this will last for? I have read everyone elses exp and I feel so sorry for other people who have been through much worse exp than me.
Actually, taking tramadol during withdrawal will decrease symptoms. I know when I was taking vics and percs and I ran out, Ultram helped fill the void. One has to take into consideration that during a supervised detox (ie. in a hospital), they will be doling it out to you. They use it to wean you off. If you do it on your own, then it can be very dangerous because many have just jumped on the tramadol bandwagon in place of their drug of choice.
It is now become painful when I lay on my sides(the right side and stomach is the worse). They are treating the paim with Tramadol and this takes the edge off, but the only way to stop completely is laying on my back and sometimes with my knees bent up. The Liver Dr states I should not be having this severe pain with the disease and they sent me to a Blood Dr whom states that he believes the Nash is the problem. But the doctors are not agreeing with one another.
They said it was fine for my liver and then I looked online and read articles that said I shouldn't take it if I had liver disease. So this time they gave me Tramadol. My pain starts when I move around and the more I move around the worse it gets. It got so bad in my mid back that I couldn't walk/move. I was walking to the store and had to stop on the sidewalk two blocks from my apartment and call a cab to get back home. Luckily I had a pain pill on me or I couldn't have taken another step.
Hi I had my gall bladder removed 4 years ago which had given me pain for at least 2 years it was badly infected and fused to my liver the surgeon said it was one of the worst he'd seen and couldn't believe I hadn't ended up in A&E much more with the pain (I think I have a high pain threshold), since then I have had bouts of mild pain almost like indigestion in the centre of my upper stomach but nothing that worried me until last week when I felt ill for a few days and suddenly vomited repeat
You can google side effects of Tramadol but I'll tell you that just about every drug affects the liver and kidneys. They are our filtering system. You take way too much Tramadol every day. You might want to get some lab work done that includes a liver function and kidney function test. What kind of pain are you having every day? If you ever want to stop the Tramadol,let us know.
Turns out Aleve is not broken down and passed thru the liver and tramadol is. I am back on Tramadol and have the hyperness and dry mouth but hopefully it will get the weight off. By the way, I have fibromyalgia.
I'm addicted to tramadol. I started taking it in January 1998 and have steadily increased the dose ever since. My doctor STILL says it's not addictive, and I can't tell him why I wanted to discuss it with him. He would go to my husband, and that would kill him. I know it's awful and sound impossible, but I'm taking 10 pills at a time just to maintain my "normal" state.
My Dr. started me on Tramadol about 2 months ago because of Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia. It seemed to be working really well, I felt alot better than I have in a long time. About 10 Days ago, I thought that since I was feeling so much better that I didn't need to be taking it on a regular basis so I skipped a dose one night. I've only taken this medication as prescribed, but that one night where I skipped the dose, I woke up the next morning feeling very ill.
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.
I'm on it now for colon and liver disease. If you stop cold turkey, you can go into renal shock. I have been on and off of it many times. You just have to taper it off over a period of several weeks or even months depending on the strength of your dosage. I've always cut my dose in half each week when tapering. Coming off the tramadol will be much harder as it is a synthetic opiate.
So here I am with all this pain and no answers. Then came along the 'Miracle' of Tramadol. Like I said, it solved my anxiety and took my headaches away without getting me high. I have a strong tolerance for medication so quickly I was having to take 2 50mg tablets twice daily, a total of 200mg/daily. This dosage was working fine for me for quite some time. Another medical problem I have developed a little over a year ago, I had a major panic attack one day out of the blue.

I do not nor does anyone else know your body chemistry and what is best for you. Tramadol is listed as a non-narcotic and I have heard some horrible stories about the drug and it's effects. Vicodin is a narcotic and in my opinion, has better pain relief than the Tramadol. Both are addictive. Please discuss this with your Doctor when you see him in 2 weeks. He is the best qualified to make that decision. Take care and good luck in the future.

Please help! I used to take tramadol and also darvocet occasionally vicoden for car accident and curved spine. HUGE family history of disk degenerative disease. My dr. who was giving me this stuff passed away 5 years ago. I never saw another dr just discovered I could order online about 3 years ago. Well..... Here I am now an addict. I am on 8-9 tramadol a day was on more but I tried to withdrawl and had HORRIBLE symptoms.
I discovered this thread just last night (5/3/13) reading up on the Thomas Recipe and peoples reactions and WD's getting off of Tramadol. You all seem like a very knowledge, caring bunch and I'd like to perhaps make some friends around here, if you'll have me. May I share a little about myself with you all? 37 year old SAHM, 2 little boys: one 3, one 5, hubby works full time managing a restaurant. That's now.
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'm a liver transplant patient and SVR. I wrecked my motorcycle and was on oxycontin and oxycodone for 4 months and if the transplant team didn't object to it I figure it can't be that hazardous to the liver. Of course, 5 years is quite a long time and I have no idea about proplonged use.
