I think it's fantastic that you are getting off the Tramadol. My brother committed suicide, and yes, it was due to Tramadol. PLEASE just hang in there, and don't go back....you can do it!!!! Be strong, and be safe! This drug is not worth taking, and will ruin your life if you continue to take it. The dosage you were initially taking was wayyyy to high! My brother was at about 30 pills a day...so dangerous! Good luck....you can do it!
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.
Then I went to a phycologist and talked to her about my eating dissorder and then told her about the tramadol and how it helpped me to curb my hunger. She said that she couldnt help me and that I need to contact a rehab center but it was so hard for me to get up enough nerve just to tell her. No one can help me. Im not the typical addict you know. Im well educated Im married with a small child and we are living in upper class america the big house and everything.
We have been together all our lives, since we were 13 and now we have been married for so long and have wonderful kids together who excel in manners and academically as well. Our habit has been well hidden from our kids and they know nothing of it. I want to quit for them and for myself, but it is hard for me when I don't have the support of my wife there with me. She is a great wife, don't get me wrong, she works full-time to support us and I am a full-time Mr. Mom.
But after taking so many pain meds, and needing to try a new one, he agreed to let me try Tramadol slowly. The Tramadol has worked well for me, and luckily I didn't have any problems with the combination of drugs. Actually the Tramadol has really helped my mood ( I think because of the snri). So I have started to taper off the Effexor. I was on 150, now taking 75 mg and will be starting 37.5 very other day for the next month. I hope this info helps you make a decision.
Usually the withdrawals are shorter and milder then a drug like Oxycontin. But still can cause dependency and in high levels even seizures.
I have been off tramadol for 7 months, and I don't remember having anything like that after a couple of weeks???? I had insomnia and stomach stuff and low energy for a little longer but no zapping or pins and needles. Would it be possible that it's some underlying health thing? As far as natural solutions, I would say mag/cal/zinc supplement from wal mart and some melatonin or something similar for sleep. Don't want to get on a benzo or sleeping pill at this point.
If you have been taking oxycontin, vicodin, ETC, and then run out of them, will tramadol help with the withdrawls, or keep them from happening? For example, I dont get high off tylenol3's or darvocet, but if i run out of the Stronger narcotics then if I can get those I would because they help keep the withdrawl away. So will Tramadol do the same thing? Or is it a non-narcotic that would be just about the same as popping Motrin? Any help on this would be great...
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.
As of now I've been off oxycontin (used them for 9 months) for about 5 hours and am already experiencing withdrawals. I see so many people talk about getting med's perscribed to help with these. My Dr. knows I'm doing this and has never offered any help. Can you recommend any med's that I could call and talk to him about? He was carefree in giving them, but doesn't seem to think about me going off of them, just that I need to. Please any help would be so very much appreciated!!!!
I know anytime I detoxed, smoking pot didn't alleviate the symptoms. It just helped put my mind in another place, so to speak. Unfortunately, nothing much is going to alleviate the symptoms besides another opioid. Certain things like clonodine might help, but you are still in for a ride. I have honestly never heard of switching opioids to escape addiction. I do see many say they were addicted to oxycontin and now they are addicted to duragesic or fentanyl or whatever.
Yikes I've been there! Before me and my gf lived together (the week she found out my problem) I was 17 and we were sustaining a semi long distance relationship.. about a 25 min drive.. well I had enough hydros to last me about 3 days.. My car decided to break down on the third day, and all my connects lived where I did. She was soooo happy that I got to stay an extra 3 days... YAY I knew her poor old grandma (who she lived with) had to have something in that medicine cabinet..
I have been using for like 4 and a half years now, I used to be pretty social and would go out a lot and drink and do coke and then one day its like I traded it all in for oxycontin and got so addicted it was shocking. Id never really been addicted to something before the way ive become addicted to oxy. Its literally taken over my life and I want so bad to stop it. Thanks for the suggestions on vitamins, i have 5-HTP that I will take and some valerian root and melatonin so I will try all those.
After the first couple of weeks, I began to realize that I would need to do a little more than just sit and wait for my life to put itself back together. For that reason, when Dr. Aharonov suggested that I begin to put exercise and a healthy diet into my daily regime, I did just that. This has made a monumental difference in the way I feel. I began to go to my local gym and to walk in my neighborhood. I often get up at 5 am and go out and walk before I go to work.
Welcome to the Tramadol reserach and advocacy site. Maybe someone can come up with an acronym for us. Thanks to Fred and madtram for everything they do on the sister Tramadol site. This site wouldn't be here without them. We have created this site as many of us have unanswered questions about Tramadol. We come from different parts of the world on the Tramadol support site....many, of course, in the US and UK.
I have to disagree, my DOC is oxycontin and I'm now on tramadol to control chronic pain. I do not get any high from it whatsoever. I get a more of a sense of calmness. I do agree that it is very addictive and hard to get off of.
I know ive already said it, probably ten times, but i love looking in the mirror and seeing my eyes look the way they are supposed to look!
I was taking 8mg dilaudid and 40mg oxycontin 3 times a day and have now cut it down to 30mg oxycontin 3 times a day and dilaudid 2 times a day. I got a ways to go, but I am under a doctor's care and I believe that is the best way to go. If you just stop, you are setting yourself up for potential failure and potential for seizures. Just rest assured that you are making headway and make a plan. It's like getting out jail. You should be able to be off in a month or so.
What is the most important information I should know about tramadol? Physical Dependence and Abuse ULTRAM may induce psychic and physical dependence of the morphine-type (μ-opioid) (see DRUG ABUSE AND DEPENDENCE). ULTRAM should not be used in opioid-dependent patients. ULTRAM has been shown to reinitiate physical dependence in some patients that have been previously dependent on other opioids.
I have been addicted to tramadol since a march 2008 Horse Accident,I am in fact a career horse trainer,one of them broke my Pelvis. After a week in the Hospital and IV Painkillers they let me out on OXYCONTIN then switched me to Vicodin ,then Ultimately the worst drug I have ever encountered ,Tramadol .
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).

Tramadol abusers compare its high favorably to heroin, morphine and OxyContin and they say it lasts somewhat longer. No wonder the popularity of tramadol as addictive substance is growing by the day. Physicians continue to be unconcerned and when faced with patient complains often pooh-pooh them and simply refuse to treat symptoms of withdrawals. As you have read in patient letters above, the withdrawals from tramadol are no different from any other narcotic.
So, why doesn't he go back to the doctor who prescribed the Oxycontin and ask him/her to set up a taper plan. I am concerned that you are going to drive yourself crazy. I hate to see you get caught up in this. He is your brother and I know you want to believe him (so do I) but he is also using drugs and therefore he is probably lying. Just be careful and take care of YOU.
suffice it to say we were young, stupid and HOOKED. i had a terrible experience and terrible withdrawals with tramadol. i personally say, stay as far away from it as possible. good luck! i've been reading your posts btw...they are very inspiring.
I'm looking for support and or just someone to share my shameful secret, that im dependent on oxycontin. I am a health care worker too, which makes me more ashamed. I too am in the process of weaning myself off oxycontin. I’ve been on them about 3 years, (for chronic neck pain) and I am just sick of feeling like **** every day. Last week, I started weaning.
only now within an hour or so the buzz is gone and i feel sick to my stomach but if i take 2 more percs it goes away. so by 3 i take another 4 tramadol and 3 more vicodin. and then before bed antoher 4 tramadol and another 3 vicodin...so lets see that totals...16 to 20 50 mg tramadol a day... plus..9 to 12 vicodin a day and 4 to 6 percocets a day.. and when i just typed that... whoa.. i cannot believe that i am taking that much stuff. doesnt seem like that when i am taking them.
I've been abusing Oxycontin 20's for about 6 months now but the well ran dry 3 days ago. I was taking 2 to 3 per day and biting them in half to bypass the time release. I haven't had any in almost a full 72 hours and so far there's been virtually no symptoms whatsoever. I'm not substituting anything to take the edge off with the exception of one 350mg "Soma" taken before bed to help with the potential insomnia.
