Tramadol and hair loss

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and hair loss


Avatar f tn I think there is a correlation between tramadol & hair loss. Post op last yr I was taking 100mg tramadol evry 6 hrs & my hair was falling out. Cut back to 100mg once a day everything ok but pain control not sufficient. After 6 months I switched to tramadol extended release 200mg 1-2 times a day & 5 days later my hair loss started again. It grew back before so perhaps this happens at high level dosages. I'll need to lower to dosage to see if it stops. BTW.
Avatar m tn Just a few days ago, I went in to another forum under Alopecia ( hair loss ) and one of the doctors responded to me and told me that methadone is a definite cause of hair loss. This made me feel so much better, I have been tapering off for 2 years now, going very very slow. But that doctor in the forum told me that when I am off the methadone my hair will grow back. I would assume this goes for pretty much all narcotics. I am glad to know I am not the only one losing hair.
Avatar f tn I can go to the grocery store and by the time I walk up and down one aisle with a buggy, my hair is dripping wet, my face is soaked, and sweat is dropping off the tip of my nose. It's so ridiculous and so embarrassing. The thing that makes me so angry is that I never even so much as took a Benadryl for sleep or ANYTHING other than vitamins my entire life. I had a freak hip breakdown when I was 40 and had to have a hip replacement.
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.
Avatar n tn I tried Lamictal but it made me literally stupid and gave me horrible acne, then I tried Depakote but it made me like the living dead I was miserable and tired and I gained 20lbs and started losing my hair (i didnt appreciate that), currently I'm on trileptal which is great because my hair came back and my depakote weight went away but i dont think it is getting rid of my seizures so its basically useless, so now I am slowly adding topamax to my regime!
5420258 tn?1406910257 I discovered this thread just last night (5/3/13) reading up on the Thomas Recipe and peoples reactions and WD's getting off of Tramadol. You all seem like a very knowledge, caring bunch and I'd like to perhaps make some friends around here, if you'll have me. May I share a little about myself with you all? 37 year old SAHM, 2 little boys: one 3, one 5, hubby works full time managing a restaurant. That's now.
1676104 tn?1304344739 I see all the down falls as in memory loss, hair loss, and how easily agitated I get. It’s like I am a ticking bomb ready to explode! My loving husband and my 2 /12 year old have been my Angels that has lead me to seeking help. As I read everyone’s comments and blogs. I too and ready to let go of this horrible drug and reclaim my life back! Please help me in starting my journey away from this evil. I am truly lost and don’t know where to start.
1059641 tn?1277525976 You’ll find you are not alone. Be ready to coach your body and your mind through the ravages of tramadol withdrawal. YOU are in charge now, not the drug. There is no magic bullet, but here are some things that really helped me: Food (specifically water and protein). Your body will revolt and you may lose your appetite or have severe nausea. Make yourself eat wholesome foods that are reasonably high in protein. Also, make yourself drink water.
544292 tn?1268886268 Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
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.
544292 tn?1268886268 You can do this tramadol warriors! You can beat this! You will do this!
Avatar f tn I didn't find this till day 5 off...but i am going to catch up and try to get current. Maybe i can help someone who's back at day one! I took tramadol "occasionally"/ off and on for the last 5 years. I am allergic to coedine and most other pain meds. so when i tore my rotator cuff 3 years ago it was "officially prescribed" and i sorta got hooked on it then - but did not take it often enough to have withdrawals on the days i didn't take it.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, I know you can do this. People are here to help you. It's going to be ok.

544292 tn?1268886268 Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc). Rare in opiate withdrawal.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
Avatar n tn have just spoken to emergencey doctor and take a diazapam tablet and increased my pregablin to 3 day and this still not helping. emergency doctor said needs to be seen my neuro specialist, and that last year i should have had treatment rather than drugs. is their any treatment, im only 38 and not really for a wheelchair again.
544292 tn?1268886268 Come on in and enjoy the conversation and make yourself comfy. This is the place to be to get off and stay off Tramadol!
Avatar n tn I can tell you that I have been prescribed everything under the sun for chronic migraines and cluster headaches. Tramadol was murder to come off of. Horrible stuff. I do feel better now that I'm on nothing. I usually walk about 5 miles a day and that seems to help. With your back pain, walking obviously is not an option. You are in a tough situation with your back. Unless you want to be in pain all of the time, you will need some type of help with the back pain.
