Tramadol for children

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol for children


393709 tn?1295968016 I am crying all the time. Chills, sweating, extreme discumfort in legs. I have been on Tramadol for over a year. The most I took was 300 mg a day. I tapered down to 100 for a week, then 50 for a couple days.
Avatar f tn My wife has been on this for over 18 months now; she started to help with her nerves, and increased until now she is on 650mg daily. She isn't the same person any more, and I don't know how much longer I can keep up the facade. We've got two beautiful children, but she is irritable at the best of times and irrational and abusive at the worse. Her doctor has prescribed her 150 mg a day (she told him she had been self-medicating 400mg daily), but it's not cheap to supplement to the 650.
6726276 tn?1421130268 Thank heavens for this forum & the wonderful people that take time & energy to help others. A doctor gave me a combo of Celebrex & Tramadol for pain relief. I filled the scripts. Took em for a day or so & thought hey! Wait one minute. Isn't this the drug that the forum had talked about? I stopped right away. Thanks everyone. You've saved me.
Avatar f tn I don't know much about tramadol. I was on it for about 6 months in the past but luckily didn't suffer with any major withdrawals. I do know it must be tapered as it can higher the risk of seizures. I tapered pretty slow when I was on it so I'm guessing that's why I didn't feel bad. I do know there are withdrawals from all of the horror stories I have read. Some end up getting on an antidepressant once they are done tapering the trams.
1349329 tn?1276988802 I was prescribed Tramadol early this year for "Chronic Pain." The Dr. and the Pharmacist said that it was not addictive. I have not abused the Medication. I take 100mg 2 times a day. I have also been doing exercise and physical therapy for my pain. I decided to cut back and get off the Tramadol a couple of weeks ago because I'm not having bad pain, and it has been aliving Hell. Just cutting down 50mg at a time gave me extreme anxiety.
Avatar n tn I have been on Tramadol for about 2 yrs. At first it worked for my pain and made me feel very good and ontop of the world. After awhile I had to keep taking more and more until I was abusing it just to be pain free. It was a never ending cycle running out starting to go through withdrawls and then getting back. Well today is my ninth day off of it and I am in pure agony!!! I do not know what to do. I do not want to go back to it but, I can not live like this. How long do the withdrawls last?
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 f tn i didnt, i have taken it for app 2 years and was taking way to much in a day, I have just got out of the hosp where i have been in intensive care for a long time. The tramadol caused me to have a series of siezures and I almost died in a pool of my own blood. By the grace of God my husband found me just in time to save my life. And quiet possibly the lives of 2 2 year old and 1 3 year old grandchildren in my care.
1325193 tn?1450131036 I have beeen taking the satanic pill Tramadol for 6 months. I stayed pretty much on the 6 a day prescription after 3 months of taking 7.5 vicos. I have been lying to everyone about my usage and for the last 3-4 weeks I was taking as many as 18-20 a day. Last Sunday, Novemeber 14th, I went from 20 to 15 in one day, Then Monday I took 8, and now today I am going to take 6. I am having lots of anxiety with guilt and lots of crying. Not much pain or stomach issues, just anxiety.
Avatar f tn I'm brand new to this forum. I've been addicted to tramadol for about 2 years now. I'm deathly scared to go off this drug. The drug is very easy to buy online. I make sure I have a continuous supply of the drug. Not only am I going broke (been overdrawn in my bank account) but I live for this drug. I've come to the realization that I have to stop and I have to stop now. I have no idea how to stop this drug, my husband and children have no idea I take this drug.
Avatar f tn My husband has been left two months, at first blamed me for everything saying we drifted apart after ten years. He has been a Tram addict all this time plus other painkillers and uppers/downers. He now admits he is an addict and needs help and wants to come back. I don't want to our 3 kids through this again. How long does it take to know someone is truelly clean and should they go to meetings for the rest of their lives.
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 I have been taking tramadol for about 10 years total. At one point I was taking 15-17 50 mg pills at one time, 4-5 times a day. I am now down to 6 pills every 4 hours. It has been very hard. My husband and family have been very supportive and want to do anything they can to help. I have read about the Thomas Detox recipe and thought it sounded like it was worth a try. Does anyone have any experience with this recipe and tramadol detox?
Avatar f tn I have been addicted to tramadol/zydol for 3 years now... it first started out takin one 50mg tab for backache, hangovers or for getting a good sleep.. i soon found i couldnt sleep without them, then i cudnt function daily without them.. i was taking one or 2 tabs daily but over the years it has grown to roughly 20 tabs a day..... roughly 1000mg i think? i am running out of them and i have no way of getting hold of them now. i have finally decided enough is enough..
722310 tn?1234765737 Hi, I am on day 12 of Tramadol withdrawl. I was on 450mg/day for 2 years for chronic pain. I am still suffering withdrawl symptoms, (ie. insomnia, RLS, muscle aches and pain, no energy, low mood, etc.). The first week was pure hell. My dr. has put me on clonidine and zanaflex, to help get me through. I am also taking Cymbalta for my fibromyalgia, as well as supplements, L-Tysosine, magnesium, multi vitamin and advil. I am taking hot baths to help with the RLS, which the relief doesn't last long.
1349329 tn?1276988802 You may be more likely to have a seizure while taking tramadol if you have a history of seizures or head injury, a metabolic disorder, or if you are taking certain medicines such as antidepressants, muscle relaxers, or medicine for nausea and vomiting. Take tramadol exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take it in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your doctor. Do not take more than 300 milligrams of tramadol in one day.
Avatar n tn After taking Tramadol 300-400mg a day for 2 years, I quit cold turkey 5 weeks ago. I am still having HORRIBLE fatigue daily in addition to limb weakness, depression, and blurred vision. Can anyone tell me if this is going to end soon or perhaps I'm suffering from some other illness that I am confusing with withdrawal? Thanks folks!!
Avatar f tn I cannot stand it anymore and I surely cannot afford it anymore as tramadol has become much more expensive for smaller quantities lately. In any event, I was very ashamed of my huge habit and have had this secret for all this time. Nobody else knows at all....this is the first time I am able to be honest about it and I am grateful. I felt like the only one in the world that had such a huge habit and I am very ashamed of it. My tramadol if finally going to run out in a few days for good.
Avatar n tn I have been taking tramadol off and on for yrs. I have been trying to get off it for the last 3 yrs and cant take the withdrawall for more than a week or so. Rehab is not an option for me, I have children and live in a small town. Nobody knows I have this problem, other than my husband. I have back pain and started taking tramadol because it suposedly wasnt addictive!!! How do I get off this medicine and still function? Is there a way to get help without rehab?
1647482 tn?1301337572 Okay - BOY do I know what you're going through. Tramadol was my DOC for 6/7 (not sure because tramadol STOLE my memory) years and in my opinion, the WORST pain killer out there - it's not only a synthetic opiate, but also contains the chemical components of an anti-depressant which is why the withdrawal is SO horrible. But I will tell you that if you haven't taken it for a couple of days I do NOT recommend going back on to do a taper.
Avatar n tn I was taking 200 to 200 mg a day of Tramadol for 7 months for back pain. Great pain reliever, and a nice euphoric, "can't upset me for anything" feeling as a bonus. Of course both the pain relief and the good mood effect wore off after a couple months. Tried tapering down for 3 weeks but that was making me crazy so I got rid of the rest and went cold turkey. Utter hell for a week, first few nights shaking and sweating, thrashing legs, tears even.
Avatar f tn Do you have anyone that can help you with your children while you go through the detox process? Maybe you need to make a plan. I'm so sorry for your situation, it's hard when little ones depend on you. But you can do it if you really want it. Good luck and God Bless You!!

Avatar f tn I am sure we all wish we would have never been sucked into the pills, but all we can do now if fight for our sobriety and health. I am at 80 days but I was taking Tramadol for years, so I am sure I still have a ways to go before I feel even better. Thanks to everyone who helped me.
Avatar f tn I haven't been on this site for a while. I was on Tramadol for a month and I went down to 50mg/day and then went off. It took me 5 days to get over the withdrawal but you can do it! I had shaking (hand tremors) severe back pain (I know I have back pain but this was much higher for one day). I was sweating, well unwell, or sickly, had respiratory distress somewhat. I'm sure I had other symptoms like insomnia. I can't think of. But after 5 days that was it. So, taper to 50mg and get off.
Avatar n tn hi ive been taking slow release 100mg every 12 hrs for 6 months for back pain but i started to notice the pain coming back if not worse so i went to my drs and he suggested an anti-infam called voltorol 50 mg 3 times a day with paracetamol if needed and said reduce to 100mg once a day instead of 200mg once a day for a week .....
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have missed periods while taking Tramadol for a long period of time? I have taken it for about 5 months now and my period had come regularly, but now I have missed a period and have already taken a pregnancy test, which turned out negative. I have gone a week and a half passed the date that I usually get my period and still haven't gotten it. I have never missed a period in my entire life, other than when I was pregnant with my two children.
Avatar n tn I have been taking 5mgs of Tramadol 2/3 times a day for a while - a script from a doc who gave them to me for headaches. I just realized that I am 8 weeks preg and the doc said it was OK for me to keep taking them. That since it's keeping my headaches "at bay" and Tram is a 'safe drug' that I shouldn't have any problems. Do we trust this? I'm reading on here everyone talking about the bad effects and hard times that they have had getting off of it.
Avatar n tn My dr prescribed tramadol for me because I have endometriosis (which is very painful for me sometimes) and took it as prescribed and found my body became dependent on it. I have started to taper down my meds and dosing. When I realized my body had become dependent on this med, it FREAKED ME OUT!
1178983 tn?1279667255 Now I just sort of want to flush them but also after being on them for six or seven months I somehow think that cold turkey would be extremely unwise considering the fact that I have three young children to care for. WD's are hard enough on the addict and my family does not deserve to deal with this again as well.
