Common Questions and Answers about Effects of tramadol in dogs


Avatar f tn They were all side effects of this drug and withdrawing from it is worse than the side effects, but I am not going to be held hostage to a drug. I rue the day that I asked my GP to prescribe it - and he very willingly gave it to me. Only two good things have come of it - I reverse diagnosed myself and realized all the aches and pains and cold sensitivity are probably due to fibromyalgia (I fit all the symptoms) and I've lost some 12 lbs I've been wanting to get rid of for years :-).
Avatar n tn One of tramadol's side effects is that is CAN or MAY cause seizures. That side effect is neither dose dependent nor does it happen as a result of withdrawal. Some people are prone to seizures and most aren't. Unfortunately, it is hard to tell who is prone. There are people who have had seizures from it and they had been taking it for quite some time.
1349329 tn?1276988802 It's so depressing to find that 2 years since I quit, there remains such a lack of knowledge about tramadol in the medical profession. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn The Rimadyl has a wash out phase of 3 days......Then you can start the Pred. In the meantime, the Tramadol can still be safely given.....It is specifically just for pain..... Prednisone is the first line of defense for these kinds of injuries....What breed & age is your girl? This disease is labeled IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease). Your dog should be under complete cage rest and SHOULD NOT be walking around....

Avatar m tn Are there painkillers for dogs that are safe? Tramadol caused my 11 year old chow chow Emily to have seizures after two days 4 pills and the Rimadyl side effects I just read here are equally as bad. Both were give to her by her vet of six years. If anyone has any ideas please contact me at ***@****. Thank you.
1943347 tn?1324328791 I just discovered that there are swollen lymph nodes in my dogs neck. Each one about the size of a golf ball. Should I wait a few days for the swelling to go down or take her to the vet now?
2186126 tn?1384961026 I now think by shrinking the tumor with this medicine, then managing the subsequent side effects of treatment is the superior approach for dogs under 14. Make sure to google/ research the heck out of Cushing as it is very complex, and you'll want to make sure your vet can refer you to a specialist as symptoms become more serious. Get second and third opinions, etc. Drs don't truly understand this illness very well at all, and tend to have varying opinions on treatments, etc.
1550149 tn?1340004330 Constipation; Diarrhea; Dizziness; Drowsiness; Dry Mouth; Increased Sweating; Headache; Loss of Appetite; Nausea. This is not complete and I am sure there are more, less common side effects. I took Tramadol for a short term but it was simply not effective for me. Among the side effects are dry mouth, this would seem to indicate that your mucosa can be dry which may account for your dry eyes. I cannot find reports of ENT side effects such as your under water feeling.
348629 tn?1212329273 Risk of seizure is highest among those aged 25–54 years, those with more than four tramadol prescriptions, and those with a history of alcohol abuse, stroke, or head injury --Long-term use of high doses of Tramadol may be associated with physical dependence and a withdrawal syndrome. The atypical withdrawal symptoms are probably related to tramadol's effect on serotonin and norepinephrine re-uptake.
470217 tn?1360568961 But my thought with the hydro and antidepressants is that perhaps I can taper over to a very minimal amount of hydro long enough to get the antidepressant element of the Tramadol out of my system (should take 24-36 hours Tram-free, that's what I read) , after which I can take some amount of the antidepressants while I continue to taper off the hydro until I'm at zero for opiates. Then when I'm ready I can take a Prozac and be done with the antidepressant withdrawal component.
3185671 tn?1344782780 Most of us aren't looking to get high - we're looking to not feel for just a little bit. It only takes a few moments in a room full of addicts to realize you are in the presence of greatness and some of the funniest and genius minded people on this planet. There's definitely a few that don't fall into this category. But most of us are in touch with something, something greater than us, something that makes us in touch and feel emotions in a way others don't.
Avatar n tn So here I am, lost and confused, with no plan on hand, but sitting on perhaps hundreds of tramadol in my back office....I think that I can maintain 2 tabs a day now, and feel good an productive, But I want to be clean but know not how to! Please help!
Avatar f tn Hello & welcome....Don't give up.....There are other choices for pain control......So your Vet sent you away without anything for your dog? I believe what your Vet is saying is no anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs like Rimadyl, Metacam, Previcox, etc. because of the way they are processed & possible side effects.....However, that does NOT mean that your dog cannot have just pain medication! My choice would be "Tramadol", but I'm sure there are others....
Avatar f tn If I can establish the truth about her being able to purchase or not I can then speak to her and try to lead her to proper medical help.
378273 tn?1262101221 Afibs and sometimes weeks go by without an episode; but most of the time I get it about once a week; usually in the middle of the night. One time, one of my dogs woke me by bumping his nose to mine - I was having a run of really slow beats and I guess it scared him. Usually I have tachs though - hard to say which is more uncomfortable. Spicy foods brings it on as does stress, but not at the time of the stressful event; a few days later!
535089 tn?1400677119 Our 9 year old pug has calcium deposits on her hind legs and she takes tramadol. The only side effects have been drowsiness for the first few weeks and then sometimes a lack of appitite. So far no main problems. I would just keep an eye on him for the first while and he should be fine.
Avatar m tn Hehehe I eat tin after tin of tuna in spring water mixed in a bowl with baked beans, egg penne pasta and sweetcorn all mixed up, I could eat 6 big bowls of that a day as it was all I ate when I used to work out before Mr T Ramadol introduced himself to me! I am going to the market tomorrow and they have an aisle dedicated with vitamins and goodies so I may frazzle an employees brain asking about every single bloody one eh?
Avatar m tn In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURATION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer.
