My question is, has anyone heard of lyrica causing withdrawal symptoms when taken w/methadone? I was given Tramadol(Ultram) w/ methadone and thought I was going to die with the interaction it caused!!!
Btw I took 5 tramadol and 2 methadone today, and it didn't send me into withdrawal. That whole line is a bunch a bull she©#.
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 drugs.com/interactions 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 tramadol acet. It's 37.5mg tramadol and 325mg acetaminophen. Since the tramadol 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 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 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.
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).
Is that safe? The only interaction that i am worried about is the methadone. I was kinda bad and 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,and how long till i can stop taking methadone and 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 and it has helped me so much and feel less alone in this. I have been abusing Tramadol 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.
He is also taking Xanax for sleep (which, in fact, does cause a drug interaction with Methadone). I've done searches for non-opiad pain meds and 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!

Howdy Tramadol Warriors! New space New day!
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.
The support u get from staff and other patients helped me tremendously. The structured days and forced interaction guided me to stay strong, educated and inspired. I did go a lil batty by day 7- I got cabin fever and wanted to break free of the institution type feel. By this time I had good days and I thought I made it, then the next day would be super depressing and sick again. My body was obviously still detoxing and wasn't finished stabilizing. I ended up getting too excited and left detox.
