Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol vs hydrocodone opioids

Yea, the withdrawals from Tramadol is much worse than hydrocodone. Tramadol seems to kill pain for a longer period than hydrocodone. You really have to go through a loading phase with Tramadol before it starts to work well. After dosing for a couple weeks it starts working pretty good. I don't recommend anyone take Tramadol. You don't want to be addicted to Tramadol, I promise you. It is just as addictive as hydrocodone and it is twice as dangerous.
They don't give me the same high as HC or Vicodin, but I have heard they are still addictive. Any advice?
Some of you may have seen the recent news surrounding hydrocodone, but I wanted to share it here for those of you who haven't as it’s an important issue that could potentially affect millions of people. To give you a brief overview, an advisory panel to the FDA has recommended tighter restrictions on hydrocodone-containing drugs, which would essentially classify them among the most dangerous prescription medications available to patients.

I am sorry to hear about the lack of energy you have now being without the hydrocodone. But you must understand that this side effect of opioids is short lived unless the dose is continually escalated in short periods of time. Even if you would have stayed on hydrocodone, the energy effect would have began to diminsh. And, I believe you noticed this as to why you were up to 60 tablets in one week after being on hydrocodone for 3 years.
not doubting the pain you have but sicne you are on hydros which means its not too severe i would maybe try tapering your dose a little each week and then once low enough like 2 a day switch over to tramadol or codeine, both weaker potency opiates. tramadol last longer around 9 hrs. and can treat severe pain, but doestn produce the euphoria anda ll the great effects junkies are looking for, its mostly used either legitimally or used to ease wds froms tronger opiates.
However, can be be as addictive as other opioids, tramadol addiction and abuse may occur. Legally, this medication is not considered a narcotic because it is not listed as such in the Controlled Substances Act. Tramadol is an selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and has been related to seizures during usage and w/d. Withdrawls effects from Tramadol can sometimes more dangerous and worse than other opiates. So using it to ease w/d is a very dangerous game.
If you go through the threads and read my post starting from Tramadol 1/26...You will see yourself. I've been ranting and raving about this for sometime. I suffered for years, and it wasnt untill I literally began to fall apart at the seams that I began to get some relief. I know the feeling of being treated like an addict cause you want relief. My doctor shows disappointment all over his face when I come to the ofc. no matter how hard he tries to hide it. HE IS SCARED!
Hope I got your handle right. I think I do remember your posting before. When you think about it in hindsight, are you really surprised that you pushed the envelope to the point of getting caught?? We're ADDICTS, afterall. But I remember going throught the same wrestling match in my head:" WHY am I doing this? I'm going to get caught!! WHY don't I stop when I know I'm going to lose everything?? WHEN will this stop??
For a chronic pain patient (or terminal cancer patients and the like), taking opioids to relieve that pain is fine. Most opioids are not toxic and will have no effects on you if you take them long term. There have been many studies to back this up, that middle class opioid addicts are as healthy as the general public. It is your medication, and you are now physically dependent on it (there is a difference here between that and addiction).
So I take all the naughty drugs, morphine, hydrocodone, tramadol, valium, codeine, in daily quantities that would kill most people. I get no mental high from them at all, just a relief from severe pain. Who is any doctor to judge another's suffering? I am so grateful every time I get a prescription filled, while devastated at my physical need for these meds.
Thomas Detox Recipe PLEASE NOTE: I am not a doctor, simply a long-time Rx opiate junkie who has had many opportunities to develop a way to detox. This is a recipe for at-home self-detox from opiates based on my experience as well as that of many other addicts. It is not intended as professional medical advice. It is always wise to make sure none of the recipe ingredients or procedures conflict with medications you may be taking.
3 mg taken at bedtime is the normal amount prescribed..Whether 0.1 or up to0.3 (one pill vs three) is determined by the Dr and what history he knows of the individual he is prescribing it to....It will help though.. She ought to be able to recover from this quickly though as long as she doesn't get caught in a mental trap of thinking about it too much. Symptoms do mimic the flu..
tramadol, darvocet, vicodin, loratab, celexa, bextra, MANY diff. anti-depressants ETC. ~~ I go 2 the dr. EVERY month for pain management. I LOVE my dr.! I've been seeing her for quite a few yrs.! And she's VERY conservative about giving pain meds. SEE................................ the thing is MOST dr's WON'T give pain meds for fibro. INCLUDING my dr.!! She prescribes my pain meds for my torn up spine, neck & head. The herniated disc i have ARE pinching nerves etc.!
I found out they included that in my letter as a mistake but I told them I was interested in that as the pain relief lasts a lot longer than the epidural injection (6-9 mos vs 6 weeks and in Sherry's case 20 months!!! That's fantastic Sherry!). They said that at my 6 week follow-up appointment at the end of April we would discuss it more as a possibility.
Ive used hydrocodone for three years averaging 150mg/day. In the last 3 months I've quit xanax,valium,soma,sleep aids and cigarettes. I'm on day 7 with no hydro, I'm taking .324mg buprenex twice a day and feel pretty good. Tuesday is my last day, will I still feel the the full w/d of hydro or will the buprenex have gotten me thru the worst of it? Any and all input is appreciated.
Just tell them you've been addicted to [your drug] for x amount of years/months and you're seeking treatment with suboxone. You don't have to go in to detox vs maintenance til you talk to the doctor. If maintenance is what you seek, I'd come up with some rough dates and places that you underwent medical treatment for opiate addiction and failed, the more the merrier. The doc might want those records, so include at least one that actually happened. LOL.
