Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and celexa


Avatar m tn I took celexa last week and had horrid reactions. My dr. gave me tramadol for pain and I am afraid I will react the same as for the celexa. I am only going to be taking the tramadol for a week or so.
Avatar f tn And what is a better drug to take? I am ADD/ADHD and really stressed out. I feel better when I take celexa 20 mg. daily and 5mg of Ritalin twice daily. I am only 4'11" and this weight HAS GOT TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn CeleXa inhibits reuptake allowing more seratonin to be left in the synaptic gap causing the threshold for the nerves firing to be techniquelly less because less has to be delivered for the spark to occur since more is already there and available. I have smoked M. for 2 years and recently started CeleXa. The only thing ive noticed thus far is that I am less affected by the M. now that I am on CeleXa.
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.

479459 tn?1246745619 I think a lot of it just has to do with the logistics of getting Tramadol/Ultram... it's just easier to get than scheduled drugs AND it's relatively inexpensive. It's a central opioid agonist even though it isn't technically called a narcotic. Buprenorphine is also an opioid agonist (as well as an antagonist) - so it can be used to the same effect. Also interesting to note that naloxone (and other opioid antagonists) will block the effect of tramadol. Why it's not scheduled... don't know.
475300 tn?1312426726 Ultram (Tramadol) and SSRI’s like Paxil, Zoloft, etc. All drugs mentioned here can easily be googled for detailed information.
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.
419772 tn?1266240939 yup this same thing happened to me and today im 17 days clean from it and i feel really good ive tried quiting 4 times befoer this final time and i always felt sick for months and ended up going back to it this is what i did this time i went to a doctor and told um i was depressed ect and he prescibed me celexa i quit taking the pills that monday and started taking the antis that day, they dont kick in for a 3-4 weaks but im sure theyve made this alot eiser.
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 f tn i am on tramadol now for 6 years or more and my dosage went to 10 or 11 pills 225mg per day and 10 or 11 clonazepam 2mg both together i used to be happy it took me when i was depressed feeling down to another mode , now i am married and about to have a kid i need to stop not for his sake but really for my sake am 30 years old it started couple of month ago to effect my work and my relation with my friends i ended up lonely ....i need to stop both ..
Avatar n tn So I'm hooked on tramadol, without which I can't really walk with my back and the detox is hell, and living in a country where I can get them cheaply, without a prescription, at about 50 locations within a 5 minute walk to my house. Good news: they do have AA here! Bad news: NOT IN INGLES, and my lazy butt hasn't learned Spanish yet. I've tried quitting cold turkey a few times and haven't made in more than 2-3 days. I'm still not drinkin though.
497348 tn?1283439666 I am just started on weaning from tramadol. I am prescribed. Xanax and Celexa. I never started the celexa because the scare of SSRI syndrome. To much seretonin release. do you like Celexa had helped you.
Avatar m tn When I went back to my doctor for a follow up on Friday, he also decided to put me on Xanax (PRN) and Celexa (10mg/1XD). I always research any medication I take, and have been reading that the Metoprolol Tartrate and the Citaprolam are a bad combination and can lead to extremely low blood pressure or even heart stoppage. I was wondering if anyone else out there has been prescribed these medications together, and if so, have you had any adverse reactions?
569458 tn?1221396019 Tramadol is an awful, awful drug. I had to go on Subutex just to get off it. How many were you taking. Five days off is something to be proud of and the worst should be behind you. Although the mental stuff is hard to handle and you may want to go on an antidepresant to help with that. Keep up the good work!!
Avatar m tn need to do own research) i stopped all med for 48 hrs and tramadol and prozac permantenly and immediatly began feeling better...i called my dr when i figured out what was wrong and her nurse said she (the doc) doesn't think i had that...i left her and every time i mention this story to docs i encounter they are blown away no-one helped me...
Avatar f tn I was on 400 Mg Tramadol for 8 months and had to stop cold due to Seritonin issues (Seritonin syndrome) Withdrawal was hell. I have been off it for 10 Weeks and my Doctor just put me on amytriptaline for pain. Can anyone tell me if, once you have seritonine problems can you take other seritonine affecting meds? I am starting to have the same side effects, nightmares, confusion, anxiety, flushing and I'm on a low dose.
Avatar m tn I have been clean from Vicodin 5/500mg and Tramadol 50mg for about a week now, and I'm in a long term tapering of Xanax.I have not experienced any discomfort from the Xanax withdrawal due to the slow tapering process but since two days ago and today is the worst, I have been feling severe migraines and severe pain in the muscles of my back and neck, specially arund my shoulder blades, where some " knots" are forming and are very painful to the touch.
Avatar m tn I never have gotten it w/mixing ultram and celexa for some freaky reason. I did cut my celexa pill in 1/2 till I get this ultram thing done with. thanks for your concern.
Avatar m tn So someone on Celexa should not take Tramadol? This Dr. actually prescribed Tramadol to him and knows he takes Celexa.
348629 tn?1212329273 would taking celexa be tradding addictions i was addicted to ultrams ive been clean for seven days and ive been taking the antis depresents and i feel pretty good please post any info would b nice my doc said if they make me feel good ill be on them for 9 months and i was also wonderin when i do get off them willl i just b back to how i was being addicted to thw pills since tramadol also releases sarotonin?
Avatar f tn That means you may also need an SSRI antidepressant to deal with some depression that may develop as the result of your withdrawal, so I would highly recommend for you to start taking an SSRI antidepressant i.e. Celexa or Zoloft, whichever one works better for you. Is not easy, but it gets better and better over time and you can look forward to a opiate free healthy energetic you in the future. Look at my blog about it and especially the comments I got to the blog.
Avatar m tn Was prescribed 25 milligrams of demerol. AND CHUNKED them...and replaced them with....200 milligrams of TRAMADOL. VIOLA instant relief. They also can be backed off of for a day, and VIOLA...instant gain it back. Unlike anyother pain med. Really, I am looking for someone that has a success story.
Avatar m tn I suffer very badly from IC and am still getting to grips with what foods etc to stay away from, I currently take 6 tramadol, 9 gabbapentin and 6mg of diazepam daily. But lately I've started thinking that maybe the tramadol actually causes flares, has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn I was taking 500mg a day of the Tramadol and since Saturday have cut down to 300mg. Its very hard. I work alot and get tired and bottom out alot. I drink alot of coffee and that seems to help. I have been taking Tylenol PM at night and that really seems to help. I will talk to my doctor about the Effexor idea. I will have to try it on the weekend so I dont miss any work. I also heard Celexa is a good one for withdrawal symptoms. Thank you so very much! You are all great!
Avatar m tn As of now I currently take Ambien 10mg for sleep, Clonazepam 1.5mg for anxiety and Celexa 20mg for depression. I have about 110 Tramadol left and I think there is no time like the present to taper off and make my body adjust to a life without Tramadol. I would like to know the best methods of handling this and I already have started a taper method but any advice is helpful.
Avatar m tn She also had been taking Celexa which was prescribed by the same doctor along with the Tramadol. I do recall seeing some changes in my wifes behavior prior to her admitting her addiction to me. She had lost some weight, she had been having difficulty at work (confusion), unable to perform at her previous level of competance etc. She took matters into her own hands and abrubtly stopped taking both medications. All I can say is that what followed was a nightmare. I took her to the local ER.
Avatar m tn Please tell me I'm really robbing myself of true energy, and that once I'm off of these I'll regain my natural energy and love for life. I read tramadol also is a serotonin something or other and you withdraw from that as well. I'm on zoloft which is an SSRI. I hope you take me seriously, I'm very addicted, very scared and fear I'll be a real wreck. Please tell me how long this will take? Is the withdrawal worse the longr you've taken the drug?
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
