Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and methadone interaction


My question is, has anyone heard of lyrica causing withdrawal symptoms when taken w/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>? I was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span>(Ultram) w/ <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> thought I was going to die with the interaction it caused!!!
I'm considering switching from hydrocodone to tramadol for pain management. I looked up the intereactions between the two and found that seizures can occur for some reason. According to its a "major-interaction"... I don't plan on taking them together but today I took 5mg methadone to transition from the wd of hydrocodone. i don't plan on taking the methadone much either, due to its horrible life of dependency and yada yada...
There is a good tramadol mixed with acetaminophen called <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> acet. It's 37.5mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 325mg acetaminophen. Since the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> dose is relatively low in tramadol acet I would use this one since she's already on Pristiq.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> every day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Lexapro. My mom tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on for 3 years. I say off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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).
Is that safe? The only interaction that i am worried about is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>. I was kinda bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> gave all all my klonopins to a friend (at the time she needed it, but I do have seizures so i must take benzo's), All i had let was 1.5 mgs of Klonopin, 0.2mgs Chlonodine, 1 mg ativan (another pill i found with the tramadol)., the 200mg Seroquel ( well right now, i cut them in half i i dont need it), Its hard to pee at the clinic when they have the random urins, and that 50 mg tramadol.
is, will taking methadone instead of oxycontin detox me from oxy,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> how long till i can stop taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not feel any withdraws from oxy? 2nd how long does it take to become physically dependent on methadone? im **** this myself no doc im getting it off the street. my goal is to stop physical dependence(withdraw) to oxy but not take methadone long enough to get physical dependence. i was taking 160mg of oxy a day, now im taking 30mg. methadone for the last 4 days and no oxy.
I have been reading the posts by so many people who are suffering from addiction <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it has helped me so much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> feel less alone in this. I have been abusing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> for 2 years and have finally quit 2 days ago. I am suffering through the withdrawal!!! I am exhausted and my brain feels like its getting zapped every 2 seconds, I can't sleep and I sweat like crazy all through the night. I even tapered down from 10 pills a day to 2 and then stopped all together last sunday.
I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span> for about 2 years. I started at 80 mgs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am now down to between 30 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 20 a day. I really need and want to be off of this. Can anyone help?
He is also taking Xanax for sleep (which, in fact, does cause a drug interaction with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>methadone</span>). I've done searches for non-opiad pain meds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I haven't really come up with much. My husband will be seeing his pain specialist soon and ask him what other options he has. He has already begun to decrease his dose to 4 - 10mg pills per day. Have a great week!

Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tramadol</span> Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> getting support. Because I still believe that tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to tramadol.
