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 m tn Will taking Tramadol interfere with my Zoloft withdrawal recovery, since it's an SSRI? I take only 2 Tramadol tabs a day. (Each tab is 50mg) I was on 50mg Zoloft when I quit taking it cold turkey.
Avatar m tn Ultram is nothing more than the Brand name for Tramadol and Ultram ER is a timed release of Tramadol. Ultracet is merely Tramdol and Tylenol in the same pill.
Avatar n tn Interesting...I'm taking tramadol for my back pain (50mg 3x/day) and also take zoloft and klonipin, occcasionally. Thanks for that info. I hope to be off the tramadol in another couple weeks, but I think I'll call the doctor. Oh, he also gave me soma which turns me into a zombie when combined with tramadol.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am 30 days off of tramadol ( 2pills 3x daily sometimes more) they were prescribed to me for fibromyalgia and I was on them for 2 years. I was on hydrocodone for about a year before the tramadol and I wanted to get off the narcotics so I was put on tramadol since its "non narcotic"...!!! Yeah right! I quit taking the hydrocodone cold turkey and the withdrawal from those was way easier than the withdrawal from tramadol! Anyways...
Avatar f tn It slowly crept up on me. I have tried the slow taper only to dip into depression and severe anxiety. I did cold turkey for 7 days, lost it and started again. How many are successful going cold turkey. Since I went back on, have been having wd symptoms very easy between doses. This never happened when I took it before. I would rather suffer hard shorter wds than slow and certain torture for months.
Avatar f tn I am scared to get off completely because I have tried before and feel completely like crap and fatigued beyond belief. Nobody knows about my Tramadol addiction and I want to detox without any of my family knowing, without it affecting my everyday life. Is there anybody out there that has detoxed from Tramadol successfully and if so, what advise do you have to make this as painless as possible. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I have been taking zoloft and tramadol for 3 years. I want to Stop the tramadol but even after one day, I feel Horrible. Have tried several times!! I take .1 mg Xanax and two tramadol each morning Zoloft at noon and .3 clonidine at night. My hands Are burning very depressed, just not myself I do not want to die...someone plse help Me know how to wean off this horrible drug. Please! My husband doesn't have a clue.
Avatar f tn Even though Tramadol is not considered a true narcotic medication and is relatively easily prescribed for pain by some physicians, it is as you have found out quite addictive and difficult to quit. I have dealt with hundreds of addicts who have all told me horror stories of doing it by themselves. I would only guess that if are successful in doing it at home you don't end up in my clinic.
Avatar m tn Only downside is that it makes me a bit sleepy for about an hour and a half after taking it. But that effect seems to go away the longer I take it, and also once I get up and get moving. Exercise, fresh air, and sunshine: I make sure I go out and get some fresh air, at least do some walking or light jogging each day. Lately I have been going to play disc golf since the weather has been nice, and if nothing else, it helps reduce my anxiety and depression by keeping my mind off things.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Tramadol for about 7-8 months. At first for back pain. Now for the wonderful sedative effect that it gives me. I take only two 50mg tablets every evening. About three months ago I tried to go Cold Turkey and the very first night was an absolute horror!! All the nasty symptoms everyone describes. So I ran to My Doctor of course he said it is not habit forming . He gave me Clonodine. That did absolutely nothing for the withdrawls.
Avatar f tn What a great and soothing feeling, that there is one doctor so concerning about this horrible and silent chaser of tramadol, I admire your concerning about this medication addiction.
Avatar m tn Does 100mg of Tramadol have as much SSRI as say 50mg of Zoloft? I was taking Tramadol while I was going through Zoloft withdrawal and I'm just wondering if I stunted the healing process of my Zoloft withdrawal. My body and mind still don't feel 100% since quitting Zoloft, but it's definitely getting better. I DON'T take Tramadol anymore, but I'm just wondering if I would have healed from quitting Zoloft sooner if I hadn't taken Tramadol earlier.
1369723 tn?1278309190 How long does Tramadol withdrawals last? CT after 2 years and 15 pills a day. Day 3 and deathly ill.
Avatar f tn I'm 19 years old and I have been taking tramadol for over two years now. I started taking them for back pain thinking they were non addictive and just made me feel good, but now I am taking up to 25 pills a day. I can't taper because I have no more pills and I don't want to get anymore because I know I will give in and take too many.
Avatar n tn I been on Paxil and kolonopin for the past month and a half and so far so good. Zoloft always made me feel numb and I didnt like the side effects. The even put me on buspore and that really didn't work for me. It made my panic attacks worse. Lexapro was a bust also but now the meds I'm. Taking make me feel great and I can still function through the day. Prayer helps to because no matter how many pills the doctor can put you on only God can make you and take you through anything.
Avatar n tn I'm a full-time college student and I'm finding it amazingly difficult to do anything. Im tapering off the tramadol, taking two doses of two 50mg each day, and next week I'll go down to three pills a day. I just need to know that there is an end to this, and I was wondering how long it took you to get to that end. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn If any of you read another post of mine about someone asking about the antidepressant effect of tramadol, i stated that tramadols closest chemical relative was Effexor albeit the synthetic opiate component. So combining your Zoloft with high doses of tramadol is probably not a great idea and yes, would great increase your chances of serotonin syndrome. With that in mind you will feel much better starting your Zoloft or increasing it as your are tapering off the tramadol.
Avatar n tn I've been taking Tramadol for over 3 years now, but only taking it as prescribed. But that means that I've been taking it every 4 to 6 hours for 3 years. At one time (about 2 yrs ago) I had some "reserves" of it and I was taking more than I should for quite a while and decided to stop taking it, cold turkey. (NOTE: Duirng this binge I didn't request any refills, so my doctor denied any refills after that.
1081265 tn?1256141965 if you are on small amounts, it could conceivably make your dependence worse. Being on zoloft and large amounts of tramadol introduces another risk too which I won't go into here.
5890854 tn?1377268232 Around day 10 I didn't think I could handle the feelings anymore and the dr promised the Zoloft was not addictive and now I'm also reading it is?? And does have wds?? So confused?! Seemed like last night was the worst yet and from side effects of Zoloft rather than wds....
Avatar n tn then last november, i suffered my first panic attack, went on ativan (4 mgs) and upped my prozac which made me super agressive. dumped the prozac and went on zoloft. ativan stopped the panic attacks, teeth pain, i felt GREAT (or at least totally anestithised). only problem? i am now an addict going through horrible withdrawl. in a month, i tapered down from 4 mgs a day to half a mg each night to help me sleep along with 50 mgs of elavil.
Avatar n tn I weaned myself of off Zoloft without any problem but the same system I used for Zoloft don't even come close for Tramadol. I've just got a refill and really want this to be the last refill. I haven't told my doctor about wanting to come off the Tramadol because I'm afraid he'll just stop giving me refills. He is a very young doctor and not sure he really knows all there is to know about Tramadol. I really want to get back to where I was before the Tramadol.
470217 tn?1360568961 I guess I'm hoping not to need a Tramadol because 36 hours without is coming up fast, and after that I can start taking the Zoloft and see if that's going to make me feel better. I may introduce the Wellbutrin, too. To others who have quit Tramadol or even attempted it--my full respect.
Avatar n tn they are just as bad....i have been taking them to sleep at night for a year and i am now 3 nights without them (i am stopping ALL pills) and it is horrible. the xanex withdrawls are by far worse than the roxicotten withdrawls. i feel nuts. physical withdrawl is temporary but this mental game i am playing with myself now is far worse and i attribute it to coming off of the xanex.
Avatar f tn It does not have to be just an ssri .Here is the thing if you are off the tramadol and only taking one AD at a low level then you should be safe its when you take way to much or multiple ADs at the same time.However plz check with your doctor I am not one this is just what I was told by one you have to talk to you own ...good luck it will be ok.
1325193 tn?1450131036 Thank you so much for the encourgament. I am currently taking Lexapro 10mg and have been before the tramadol was prescribed. What I need is reasurance. I took only 8 today and that is going to be what I taper down to for a while. I went from 18-20 just 3 days ago. I took 15 on Sunday and now 8 today. 8 is where I am staying. I can't control the crying and the anxious feeling. You say that it might get better by day 5, which is Friday?? God I hope so. I can't take this.
Avatar m tn which did not seem to help with anythings...so I quit taking the tramadol...and had to side effects. I was just wondering, you said that your took tramadol in place of opiates...hydro's, oxy, percs...and went through meth treatment 4 years ago....Just be honest...because to me tramadol is like asprin...but I know that there are many who do get some type of boost or buzz if they take enough....so my question is: In all honesty....which is harder to quit? 1.) Opaites...
