Tramadol for opiate detox

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol for opiate detox


hello and welcome to MH. taking Tramadol or methadone will just be crossing over to another addiction. you can stop the madness. flush the pills. you will go through withdrawals. it seems you have been there before. seek counseling, one on one and support groups. with addicts one pill is too many and a thousand is never enough. you can do this. stop this addiction madness, the insanity roller coaster, the revolving door. without counseling you will most likely continue to relapse.
I have had very positive results using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> withdrawal. I have read many posts in which people state that the addiction to Tramadol is worse than oxycontin or vicodin. That has not been my experience. I have been able to taper down my Tramadol use to zero within a few weeks without difficulty. I have had a serious addiction to Opiates for the better part of a decade. Granted, I have relapsed several times and started using again.
I'm not opposed to a little valium or a few Tramadol during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Detox</span> But if you you the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> on a regular basis you WILL get hooked and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Detox</span> is worse than with the other stuff, Like some of the others I don't think one here or there will put you back to day one. The Idea is to get clean though. Regular Tramadol use, in my opinion is not clean. Been there done that. Getting off was h+++!
I am pregnant with my second child, 3 months pregnant, I've been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 years and I am addicted. My doctor told me wean off of them but its very hard to do. I take one and a half Tramadol everyday. Do you have any suggestions for me to get off of them QUICK?
How much were you taking?? It is an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> with an antidepressant added. Both can be a problem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> withdrawals. You have not been on it for a long time like some who have posted here. I do not have direct experience with that form of drug...but I know others have. I am posting so it will bump your post for more help!
Wow, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> has the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> affects? See, that is what confuses me. I was told by a Dr. that he would give me Tramadol vs the hydro b/c it was non-narcotic. It is then indeed a narcotic I take it. See, this Dr was not my family fam. doc sent me there. It was a pain management clinic. Although the new Dr. still had me on my hydro, he did want me to taper from them. So when he suggested giving me the Tramadol I bailed on him faster than lighning. I told my Dr.
understands your addictions and won't prescribe this horrible synthetic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> to you (ie <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span>). Good luck to you - and good <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> asking. Says a lot about your commitment to staying sober.
Well theres many on here that will argue about how long Tramadol w/d's last, but I do agree that methadone are basicly the worst withdrawals Ive ever experienced. Ive taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> extended periods of time and havent had any problems when I quit, but Ive heard of many people who have had very serious symptoms, so I suppose it depends on the person and how much and how long they've been using Tramadol.
PLZ don't take ultram ,It is not supposed to be used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> people who are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> addicted. There are many posts on here about people going threw hell to come off of tram ,if you put "Tramadol in search you can read some . good luck with Detox you can do this .
Hi. I have been taking 200mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> everyday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> back pain, and I was wondering is this a lot? And how bad will the withdrawal be on this dosage? Thanks for ur time!!
Methadone, Suboxone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span>. I pray that you and your lady get clean and stay clean without the use of any drug, especially a maintenance drug. If you guys really want to be clean, and I think you do, then stop the drugs. Stop trying to take one drug to get off of another drug because this can, and will, go on for a long time. The pharmaceutical companies are not going to stop making the stuff so it is up to you guys to stop the madness.
sophie, no, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span>. it will so set you back an as avis said one drug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> another is not a good idea/ you can make it and be drug free. its hard but it wont kill you. hang in there what say are you on?
If you are close with your doctor and can work together to manage the back pain, the plan would be to use an Opiate most of the time and when the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> is not as affective anymore (tolerance) then use the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a short while (2weeks or so) then go back to the Opiate again. These drugs are interchangeable and both are affective for pain relief. The doc might suggest something like methadone .... or a long lasting pain med, but you know yourself better than anyone.
It was misery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 5 or 6 days. So when I stopped the methadone I was mentally preparing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> even worse. Everything I've read from others who were hooked told me I was in for the nightmare of my life. I suppose it could still happen. Jinx, I hope I am that 1% you mentioned. My message to anybody who is thinking of taking methadone (or any Opiate) to STOP now!! It will totally control you. As is said, drugs are a monkey on your back and that f***ing monkey SCREAMS at you!
I was prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> chronic daily tension headaches. I have been on it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 3 months, I'm supposed to take 4-6 a day, but I take more like 10-15 and I'm already physically dependent. I have tried to cut down, and I get terrible headaches, cramps, aches, vomiting, unbearable fatigue and depression. I want to stop taking it because it doesn't help my headaches much, and I don't want to need a pill to feel normal. 1. Is it really worth tapering, or am I just prolonging my misery?
Look up the Thomas recipe...great info there about getting through <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Detox</span>. What dose of Suboxone were you on when you stopped taking it?
My family doctor prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> withdrawal pain and it worked, I feel a lot better, problem is I think it worked too good. When I asked my Dr. and the pharmacist they both assured me its not an Opiate, however, according to wiki it is, now I dont know which to believe. Does anybody have experience with Tramadol + suboxone Detox?
I was given suboxone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a period of five days. I got very sick in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Detox</span>. I am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> free <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> around 7 weeks now and I am still going crazy! Tramadol addiction is horrible. I go to AA meetings daily and I am stil finding it very difficult. I do not recomend that anyone ever take Tramadol.
I have been taking a prescribed medication called <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span>. I have been taking it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 years- I am on my third day now without Tramadol. Yes, the side affects of not taking this med is so true. All the withdraws that I've heard of I am experiencing. How long does the medication stay in your system? I am determined to beat this. In the past, when I would miss a dose I had horrible feelings. I was told that this medication was not addicting when prescribed for arthritis.
The Thomas method is good but not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span>. The benzos should be used to sleep, but only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a couple days (i'd say max 5 days). Then, after that, you are on your own. It will take a couple weeks to a month to feel better. Exercise as much as you can!!!! That will help the most. I know that you won't feel like it, but you should really try to do it.
I'm glad it's working for you but I'm not sure there's a gurantee that this will make it any easier <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> you. Your body is still getting the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span>/drug it's screaming <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> and one day it will be gone and your body will still be screaming...I hope I'm wrong and hope someone will correct me if I am Best of luck to you badshadow..
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a few weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. Clonidine is very helpful for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
,I took them on a daily basis and ran out last Thursday but don't need them anymore because terrible pain is gone,but I felt horrible not taking them,so I found one on Saturday and took it in the morning,by afternoon I had to tell my husband something was wrong,he suggested to hang in there and he will help me and has done,but still feel like there is nothing good around me,have stomach flu,chills,etc, but I don't want to ask for more pills ,for how many days will I feel like crap?..
Dying - this isn't your first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Detox</span> so you know what your in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span>. Remember courage is holding on one minute longer than you think you can. You are almost through the worst part of it, hold on a little longer and give yourself a chance to get off these pills. I'm 42 days clean and so happy I endured the pain of Detox and came out the other side with a new attitude and drive to feel better. I know you are hurting, we all understand what you are going through but try to hang on, please.
I have been addicted to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 years now, well at 1 am on the morning of December 30th I almost had a break down bc I feared I would not be able to get anymore from my source. It frightened me beyond belief and right then and there I vowed to myself that I am NOT going to live as a slave to this anymore. I took what I thought was my last pill at the time and then 19 hours later I found myself taking more.
Anyway, the fill-in doctor told me matter-of-factly that she was writing me a script <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> to start immediately. I'd never heard of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> at that stage; when I got home with it I realised that I was going to (unintentionally) go cold turkey on my previous medication, because the fill-in doctor had ushered me out of the clinic before I had my head around my bizarre consult.
I know I will need group and re-education <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Tramadol</span> addiction. I just want to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Detox</span> comfortably (as comfortably as is possible) and then go home and do my recovery with people who will work with me instead of dictating at me. Is that really too much to ask?
Try Rhodiola <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> energy and mood! I know most on here probably think I own shares in some supplement company. But it has been such a boon for me post-withdrawal that I just want to pass on the word in case it helps anyone else out there. I've benefited so much from tips from others, including the Rhodiola tip that actually came from a depression forum I was looking at because of coming off an SNRI like Tramadol.
Ok I have gone down to 100mg a day. 50 in the am and 50 in the pm. I didn't sleep very well last night, with restlessness a thunderstorm and a scared panting dog in the bedroom, omg! I did manage to eat bacon and eggs today, but am still quite nauseas. I'm going to try and nap this afternoon, since I don't have an ounce of energy. Also, I'm very proud of myself for keeping calm and doing my best to be grateful for small accomplishments.
