Taking suboxone and tramadol

Common Questions and Answers about Taking suboxone and tramadol


Avatar m tn Yesterday i was prescribed tramadol by a different doctor for my pain and migraine. What i need to know is if it is OK to take tramadol while i am on suboxone? i am afraid that if i take tramadol tonight, the next morning when i dose my suboxone i will feel a very discomfort feeling or withdrawal. I have been searching for answers everywhere but i was never have an accurate answer. i never wanna ask my subs doctor because it's worthless and no nothing except writing subs script.
Avatar f tn I am going on the suboxone treatment for my addiction tomorrow, I was just wondering if taking tramadol would be bad. I understand I have to be in w/d's but since tramadol is not a narc' would the same apply? Please someone answer soon, haveing a lot of trouble just being at the computer, thanks.
Avatar n tn How long should I wait before taking my suboxone if I took tramadol 12 hours ago? I know other opiates you should wait 36-48 hours, but what about tramadol? I'm so impatient that I may just take the Suboxone right now and find out for myself. Scary! If my arms and legs start going insane (more than they already are) I'll be back to let everyone know not to ever take Suboxone so soon after taking Tramadol.
Avatar m tn I have written this question a couple of times today and I don't see it show up anywhere? Not sure where it is ending up? Anyway... I will try again. I was addicted to pain meds...lortab & Vicodin. Went on Suboxone about 3 years ago. I have tapered down considerably over the last 2-3 months. I take the film and was on just a sliver a day. Roughly .25-30 mill per day. I want to get off completely.
Avatar f tn then like a week later she was taking more and more tramadol...chewing them up...gross...she told me then flushed them...and then got RLS and had to withdraw all over again...bad idea...
Avatar n tn Ive never really taken anything for rls although Ive had them many times so I can speak from experience about how things work. I did however use suboxone for about 5months so I do know about the w/d's and how hard they can be. For me the days 2-7 were the worst, I couldnt sleep, my legs were out of control and I was using the restroom alot, even though I was taking immodium. Overall I didnt have too bad of an experience compared to other opiate w/d's from oxycontin/methadone.
Avatar f tn Hi. I have been taking 200mg of tramadol everyday for a year for back pain, and I was wondering is this a lot? And how bad will the withdrawal be on this dosage? Thanks for ur time!!
1462531 tn?1287850353 Methadone, Suboxone, Tramadol. 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
147172 tn?1226761778 5 mg tablets in the house and plan on waiting until I just can't take the pain anymore and then taking only half and hoping that helps a little. My question is... I have a bottle of 50 mg tramadol here. I was wondering if it's a comparible drug to vicodin or percocet. I am going to a dr to prescribe me suboxone next week but in the meantime I was wondering if I were to take the tramadol, could that help with my withdrawal symptoms? Thanks......
673432 tn?1226031779 i found the name of a doctor in my area and called and scheduled an appt for last Friday and this Monday, was started on suboxone. I was able to find a dr in my area, not too close though, because I had to make sure that there wouldn't be anyone working there that I knew. It's been 3 days now. 3 days seems longer than the 3 years of the pills.
348415 tn?1205126863 i just read a post about tramadol...im prescribed tramadol for sever migraines and the doctor never told me it was addictive. How addictive is it? How many would you have to take a day to be addicted?
Avatar m tn I am just wondering if it is safe to take some Ultram hours after taking my daily Suboxone? I started taking Suboxone for pain, not for addiction, as I wasn't addicted to anything when I started the program. At night, my pain is terrible! I really need something stronger than Advil.
Avatar n tn It has also stop RLS I should have started this first I am 56 yr old, i have been taking Tramadol for 6 yr and now taking 20/ day If you are starting to take this drug be careful . It create its on pain that you treat with more drugs.
1349329 tn?1276988802 I worked hard to get my recovery, and I'm sorry I ever started taking the Tramadol. Even though I never abused it, I still was having a horrible time trying to get off it. I had no clue it was such a horrible drug. My number 1 goal is to get "clean" again, and to keep working on my Recovery. I was addicted for over 10 years and have gone through so much. I do not want my life to be taken over again by drugs. Thank you to everyone here who has read my posts.
Avatar n tn i substituted Tramadol for the disconmfort and Now cannot stop taking that! i am thinking i should be on suboxone after all??? My sponsor says no, just use her and the program. I have access to tramadol, and I want to be CLEAN again! I tried to do Thomas 's recipe but an't cut back! yet. I hat withdrawals and I can't handle athe anxiety part. I HAVE to go to work but o feel like checking into a motel by myself and detoxing so my family won't see me go through this.
Avatar m tn Buying the tramadol in Juarez, MX and paying $28.00 for a bottle of 100 50mg. I wonder if I could get the suboxone in mexico also. Are there other names for this drug?
Avatar m tn Hi Avisg, It all relative, actually. The amount of tramadol I was taking was way more potent than the amount of suboxone I am taking so its a big step down. It just depends on how much your taking of each each med. Its not always that sub is stronger than tramadol, just depends on dosage of each. How do you know so much about suboxone? Just curious if you've ever been on it or just read about it on the web? I am in therapy and support groups so I feel Im in a great place right now.
Avatar n tn HELP! I was given suboxone,and I stopped it too fast. now i started taking tramadol for the discomfort and can't stop that! do i go back to suboxone and taper off or...... taper off tramadol.????? I just want to be clean again! I have access to tramadol but don't wwant to be on it anymore. i can't stop , I tried tapering today without success. maybe I will have better luck tapering slower off suboxone???
Avatar f tn I have been taking Tramadol since then, and I am already up to 8 50mg pills a day, and a lot more at night because I love the way it feels to lay in bed. I know, this is why I know it's bad news. So I am still on them, but I was timing my withdrawal to be 24 hours before my doctor's appointment tomorrow. After 5 days of being off Suboxone, I felt completely out of withdrawal. But since I stayed on the Ultram, a few days ago I stopped taking them and went into horrible withdrawal.
Avatar f tn I have decided to stop taking the tramadol i had a reality check 2 days ago and it was my rock bottom. I take about 20 50mg pills a day. I will have a full script on the 24th of 180 so I was wondering is there a way to taper with just those? Otherwise I have an appointment with a doctor tomorrow to discuss a suboxone taper program to get off the tramadol.
222369 tn?1274478235 This is mostly for my own curiosity, but others may benefit. Is Suboxone available for Tramadol, Ultram, Ultracet addiction? I know it's not seen as an opiate in the general sense, but we all know it acts like one. Just curious..
Avatar f tn My daughter has just returned from treatment for methadone addiction. She is taking suboxone. I have heard good and bad. She tried to stop the suboxone in treatment but her methadone addiction is so bad. She was taking 120 mg a day, purchasing it from a "friend". She has been using an opiate of some kind regularly for 7 years. What I read here about the suboxone scares me, but the methadone scares me worse. She got a prescription yesterday from her doctor.
Avatar m tn told me to try suboxone. So right now the only thing i take is suboxone and finding out this is really hard to get off. Can i with help off vicoprofen 7.5/325 get off suboxone?. Not shure if i posted this in the right place. Also the worst med i been on was tramadol had severe whidrawals for 1 month.
1055085 tn?1254110582 I'm several steps behind you and have extreme opiate addictio per say to Norco. I have been taking them for pain management due to an injury. I was on it during my stay at the hospital in august for a week but was so doped up on psych pills I don't really remember it. Question is, would you recommend a newbie to get on suboxone in order to stop their opiate habit and not use?
Avatar n tn I am currently on my fourth week with suboxone. I am taking two 8mgs twice daily. Suboxone is the closest thing to miracle for opiate addictions. For the past two years I have been taking oxy's and Heroin everyday. The withdrawals were terrible, after several attempts at trying to use methods to quit at home Ive given up. I have used up every medical clinic and urgent care in southern Wisconsin, i decided to let the parents know and go for treatment.
307401 tn?1194835748 I didn't get a buzz on the percs other than pain relief, So it was back on with my life and suboxone. As I said suboxone is only a partial opioid antagonist.
Avatar f tn Will he take me off both Norco and Tram at same time (my hope)? Also..if all goes as planned and I start on Suboxone, how long before I can stop Sub? A friend was only on it two months and then just stopped. I do not want to be on anything. At this point the way I feel is worse than the pain..and actually Norco in increased doses makes me hurt more. Ugh. Thanks for any input!!!
Avatar n tn I did some research on the internet and found out this was relatively common with suboxone withdrawal even at the slowest taper. So.... instead of taking my life I went to the emergency room and asked for Tramadol as I was hoping and praying it would ease the suffering but yet keep me away from Norco. By the grace of god it did save my life, but I understand I have traded my suffering for another. I have been taking 3 to 4 of the 50mg per day for 8 days now.
