Taking tramadol with tylenol

Common Questions and Answers about Taking tramadol with tylenol


Avatar m tn With Ankylosing Spondylitig one thing that comes with it is the feeling of feeling uncomfortable due to the fact that your spine is fused and have limited movement like mine is. A while back my doctor told me taking Tramadol with Tylenol makes Tramadol work better. Can anyone tell me which specific type of Tylenol should I take? Is it just the regular over the counter kind?
Avatar n tn I am also taking tylenol 650 mg along with the Tramadol, thinking I won't become addicted. I still have never felt any relief for the pain in my ankle (broken 3 years ago). I have now also developed arthiritis in my joints and it just keeps getting worse. Is there anything I can do or take that will help. I am so confused with all the information I just don't know where to turn to next. I need relief, because the pain is now starting to affect my daily life.
968560 tn?1307455098 Does anyone have any experience with taking tramadol while on tx. My GI said no aspirin or motrin (elevated AST & ALT) and said no more than 500 mg. tylenol twice a day,this isnt enough to help with the bone and body pain. I'm thinking about asking for a toradol Rx. I dont have any drug abuse history,just looking for a little relief. thanx for any info.
Avatar m tn I wanted to get off Tramadol so I quit taking it 4 days ago and am having horrible anxiety, insomnia and having a hard time forcing fluids. Although I'm a nurse, I want someone to take care of me now! I was taking two 50mg Tramadol three times a day for a year and a half. I am seeing my PCP this Tuesday and was wondering what I can ask her about helping me these horrible unrelenting anxiety attacks and what is there that I can take for this daily chr pain that is not addictive.
Avatar n tn PLZ don't take ultram ,It is not supposed to be used for people who are opiate 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 .
3072999 tn?1356418332 Just wondering if anyone is currently taking Tramadol on a regular basis? I saw my NS today and was telling him about the pain I was in and the problems I was having and that I was currently trying to avoid Norco and taking more Ibuprofen. Well he is referring me to Physical Therapy (yeah, I'm hoping it helps me out) and also massage therapy and prescribed me Tramadol. He said to take it every 6 hours everyday as it is not an 'as needed medication' like Norco or Ibuprofen.
Avatar f tn I decided to stop taking torab 10's about 20 per day with added Tylenol for a better high... So, I got a bottle of 240 tramadol. I just started popping away. 30/40 a day for 6 days. I only took about 15 on day 6... Not wasn't at all!! I thought I was going to come out of my skin! The back of my neck was on fire! I think I had a a seizure because my lips wouldn't stop quivering. My heart was racing and I was having double audio. My jaw was Clenched tight.
Avatar f tn You could try taking an over the counter painkiller containing Paracetamol with the Tramadol. A doctor told me that it’s safe to do and that Tramadol actually works better when taken with Paracetamol. The fatigue you mentioned when you stop taking it is likely to be at least partially due to the letdown you typically get when you suddenly stop taking it after your body has become used to it.
996658 tn?1249678769 Most times even narcotics do not keep the pain away because of tolerance and more is needed to get relief and then withdrawal occurs between doses.Tramadol has more interactions with other meds than even Tylenol 3.Rebound pain occurs with narcotics and is constant.If you can withdraw slowly from narcs perhaps after the rebound pain has subsided just plain old tylenol and advil and muscle relaxants will help the pain.
Avatar m tn Hi I'm new here so pl bear with me..... I've been suffering from chronic neck and back pain for the past 4 years and have had lots of nerve blocks, denervations and botox injections done - nothing has really helped. I've been given Tramadol ER 200mg x twice a day by my Dr and they seem to be working but are making me feel weird/really tired/tinnitus/tearful. Should I keep taking them And how long shall I give them before I know if they are really for me? Thank you all very much.
Avatar m tn I'm wanting to break Free from Tramadol so bad, I'm just eating, and taking all the Pains that come my way. Just Taking it!! I admit, I feel my motivation slowing down. Every pill I drop, of course, gets so much harder than the last. But, Still on track! At 7 per day now! And I will not Fail! I will be Clean and Free again!!! I hate being a slave to a drug! Literally a Slave!! Just wish me luck guys, I'm gonna need it the next 48 Hours!
Avatar m tn With the film, it's tough to give exact dosage but I would guess about .25 - .30 per day. Today is day 5 with no suboxone, and day 1 with no Tramadol. Course... the tramadol was only a 4 day ordeal and I learned more about it so stopped taking immediately. Any idea as to how long this lethargy will drag on? I'm self employed and I need to work.
348415 tn?1205126863 I assume you have explored these with your doctor? Tramadol affects some and not others in terms of having a withdrawal syndrome. Remember "addiction" and physical dependence are different things. Addiction is pyschological craving, physical dependence in when you get symptoms when you withdrawal. Everyone gets physical dependence with certain drugs, such as opioids, whereas only a few people get addicted.
Avatar n tn I am trying to get surgery set up but was hoping to get the pain relieved in the mean time. I have been taking tylenol and ibuprophen but am still in pain.
393709 tn?1295968016 She was 10 years younger than me. She was like my daughter and best friend. I have been taking the Tramadol since a little before her death. I do have loving husband and wonderful children and I am trying to focus on putting our family back to normal and happy. Your compassion means so much.
Avatar n tn Hello Andrew, I'm sure you have probably received replies to your posting by now, but I thought I should let you know about my experience with Ultram (tramadol). I was taking Ultram for about 6 months, right after its introduction, for lower back pain from 2 spinal surgeries. During this time, I was also suffering from depression. I was prescribed elevil (tricyclic antidepressant) along with Ultram. These two meds didn't mix!
Avatar n tn hi i have been using tylenol with codeine for about once a month for five years now to relax and kind of refresh me from all the stress that lurks within me alot of it coming from a panic attack disorder i dont like the idea of how i could possibly be damaging my liver but it has yet to stop me or the many other people who have posted asking for help if anyone here has any information on how to extract acetaminophen from codeine or info on how well the cold water extraction technique works it co
Avatar n tn I am currently pregnant (8wks) and addicted to tramadol. I started taking it about 2yrs ago for a back injury because my Dr told me it was safe and non-addictive. Ha! What a joke. Ive tried to stop only to start again within days because the WDs were to awful to endure. I quit when I first found out I was pregnant for about 4days because I was afraid it would hurt my baby. Its all I could stand.
Avatar m tn but they all contain tylenol///ultracet is tam with tylenol....Ultram is just tramadol///tramadol is the generic name and Ultam is a brand name Trams do have both an AD quality causing increased seratonin/which is the same action as many popular ADs...zoloft, lexapro, prozac paxil, celexa...but it is an intense immediate effect with trams and these other ADs have to build up over time to help depression...
Avatar n tn I started out on Lexapro fine and have no problems with it still but with Tramadol I feel completely alone with dealing what I can clearly see as an addiction. I started out at 2 pills in the am and 2 and night. Now I take ten in the morning till I start to slow down around lunch time then I take ten more. I take 20 50mg pills a day and I can't stop. The quantities consistently increase no matter how I try to stop taking them all together. The withdrawls scare the hell out of me.
Avatar n tn I have been on tramadol for 2 years now and have cut myself down to 6 (50 mg) pills a day... but have cut cold turkey. I have some tylenol 3 I am taking to help take the edge off but need some advice on how long this fuzzy headed feeling will last. I can not sleep and feel like I have the flu... cant stop sneezing. I am not hungry but forcing myself to eat. I have a young son and can not be "absent" while I detox. How long will this last, any ways to speed this up?
276730 tn?1327966546 For the regular tx-related headaches, I did take Tylenol the most. Taking megadoses of Tylenol for long periods can be damaging, as can using it if one also uses alcohol, but taking it moderately isn't supposed to hurt us. Hope you're feeling better soon!
1315055 tn?1294370646 thanks you guys, today i offically am taking my last tramadol.. tomorrow will start a new day..i been taking these for a yr and a half now and i want off them, like everyone else has said, they make you want more and more cuz your body gets use to them...are there any supplements i should take?
Avatar m tn i also am taking tramadol 200mg 2 a day i've been taking them for 7 years for my back and neck,some days i don't have any,but i don't suffer from withdrawal,i can stop them at any time and i still don't have withdrawal but when i don't take them i'm in heaps of pain.i would like 2 know why some people suffers from withdrawals and some don't?my friend is taking the same tablet and she get withdrawal to.
Avatar f tn I am also taking b vitamins to try to help with the horrible fatigue, are there any other things I can take ( vitamins) that may help speed up recovery? Thank you for reading! Any help is appreciated.
Avatar f tn At the moment I'm taking aprox 200 mg of tramadol a day, along with Tylenol 3's. I didn't find tramadol addicting at all. I don't go into withdrawal if I miss a dose. In the past I've taken up to 400 mg a day, and when I came off it completely, I tapered down the dose slowly and when I stopped completely I did feel sick for about 2 weeks (but nothing like the severity of morphine). So I think it is worth giving it a try to see if it helps your pain.
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 Because of this, It’s critical that you have reached the point where stopping the drug overuse is more important than anything else. If the pain that you were treating with the tramadol (or other drug) is intense you will need to accept that you must talk to a physician about an alternative treatment plan. When you TRULY decide that you are not going to let this drug control your life, you will be on your way. Best of luck to you.
Avatar f tn I take 100 mg. of Tramadol and 2000 mg. of Tylenol per day. I have Vicodin that was prescribed to me quite a while ago and I've only taken a few of them. Will it hurt to take one once in a while when the pain is really unbearable? I'm talking one pill, not multiple pills on a daily basis.
