Tramadol for weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol for weight loss


Avatar f tn Taking Tramadol for weight loss is very dangerous. First, it is not what it is intended for and second, it is addictive and you are subject to seizures when you stop taking it. You need to find a new way to deal with your weight issues. Again, this is very dangerous.
Avatar f tn If anyone can valid the side of effects of Tramadol (does it cause addiction, weight lose, is it good for chronic pain, cause dizziness or anything else. I would appreciate Any and ALL feedback. Thank you!
996658 tn?1249678769 The properties of tramadol sound ideal for pain,antidepressant effects,weight loss and pain relief and considered a non narcotic.Perfect drug....wrong..Even if the regulators do not consider it a narcotic.It binds to opiate receptors.That is an opiate drug in my books..It will probably be moved to the narcotic list soon(I hope).Don't be lulled into thinking this drug is not as addicting because it is at least as addicting as narcotics.
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 n tn Did anyone who went back on it continue to lose weight? I was told it didn't work the second time around for weight loss. Also, if I am refilling my prescription after being off it for 2 months, should I titrate up? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hi and sorry you are having this pain. I was on tramadol for about 2 months for back pain. It helped some but I got insomnia from it after a while. I was told to switch to just mornings instead of twice a day and I still had some insomnia. I took Phenergan to control nausea every day so I never got it. I also took Miralax so no constipation. You can't be on Miralax long term according to the bottle but you can try Metamucil if you need it. I didn't gain or lose weight or lose my appetite.
Avatar n tn Your playing with fire here......first for taking the tramadol and then buying them online. I remember awhile back when you were taking the vicoprofen. This just gets to be a vicious cycle and it isnt going anywhere pleasant for you. Really do your homework on the Rapid Detox. They can maybe get the drugs flushed out of your system but it doesnt change the way your brain works...
639872 tn?1223338275 HI, I have been on Tramadol for 5 years. I had severe pain before I got a hip operation and kept on tramadol after it. I tried to quit a few times and the pain came back and I started up again. Three days ago I decided to quit for good. I was getting bloated, could not loose weight. I was getting depressed, anxiety, tired etc. I kept working out and excercising. No results on the weight loss. This time I started getting severe pain in my hip, drop leg, tingling in the leg.
Avatar f tn One of the scariest and hardest things of my life, and I've been on a PDR's worth of meds over the years. Tramadol has an anti depressant effect....that accounts for the energy it gave you. There are symptoms you'll have and things you can do to treat them. I'm not normally a "vitamin girl" but I learned to be. I was desperate, so I took the advice I was given, and just held on as tight as I could to my friends here on Medhelp and at home. You have to have some kind of support.
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 it is twice a day, i take for depression and hope to help on stop smoking and lossing weight and the Tramadol(not prescribed for me) 50mg taking for pain and hope weight loss. I do not even know if it is safe. buuuuuuuut anywaay. funny you are sunny66, I am mary66.......
Avatar f tn I was not taking pain medication for weight loss. I was not expecting weight loss. I was eating regularly. I did not understand why I was loosing weight since I was eating and exercising as I always had. In fact, I was exercising less because the MEDS made me tired, lethargic, depressed and sedated. The pain doctor said none of this had anything to do with the MEDS but I thought it had to. When I stopped taking the medication, I stopped losing weight and had more energy.
Avatar m tn Yesterday I talked with my cousin and confided in her - she is the one always there for me and she is there for me now... I will never take Tramadol again - these fluxuations are so bad that sometimes it’s almost too much to bear... I have learned a lot about Venlafaxine after all this and once I'm back to stabile on my Efexor then that is it - I will never take another Tramadol... I have a few questions I hope anybody can help with: 1.
Avatar m tn brother he has recommended I set a target for my weight, he thinks because of my size,metabolism and active ness I really should be around the 12.5 - 13 stone area! I strongly disagreed with him as I am only 5ft 7in and if I was that weight I would be so wide I would be like a barn door!! I will be comfortable with 12stone and that's it,, Haven't told him this yet, he's just popped to the supermarket for supplies for my "regime" Omg!!
Avatar f tn I think there has been enough research on tramadol HCL (without APAP) to suggest that everyone reacts differently to the drug. Personally, tramadol 50mg tabs (not Ultracet which is a tramadol APAP) was my solution, or should I say, salvation to liver compromising APAP alternatives that were total agonists. Some people taking tramadol HCL claim to have horrible withdrawl symptoms worse than total agonists. I find that hard to believe, since partial agonists have less potential for addiction.
Avatar n tn I take Lexapro with it too just one a day but I wonder if the doctors know of a reaction to Tramadol like mine or is it possibly a combo of tramadol and Lexapro. My mom tried tramadol and it does nothing for her pain or for energy. But for me I am just a lightning bug all day and come bed time I am totally relaxed and comfy and fall right to sleep.
Avatar n tn Just dropped in after kicking about 5 or 6 months ago. I started on tramadol for osteoarthritis pain and was on trammies for approx. 18 months before I wanted my life back. I was at 14 -20 pills a day (700 -1000 mg.) just to be "normal" and was going to 3 different docs to obtain that amount.
5420258 tn?1406910257 She switched to something that wasn't controlled for a few years but piled up a HUGE amount of weight. Then Ambien came out and it was like a godsend to her. She took that with zero issues for many years through my teen years. It wasn't until my 20's that she shared her secrets with me: Lortab in the daytime, Ambien at night, that I adopted those pills and developed my own habit.
Avatar n tn Daugther/son in two years, I'm 78, was,very overweight/obese tramadol really helped with the depression, and weight loss still helping me.
303824 tn?1294875001 One of the reasons I liked vicodin so much is that is was a form of weight control for me. It gave me energy and decreased my appetite. During w/ds, my weight dropped down lower than ever but now, 2 mos later, I'm straining the seams of my fat pants!
Avatar f tn I was in a car accident 6 months ago and have been prescribed Tramadol for pain for the past 5 months. Started at 50mg 2x daily , now most times 100mg. 2x daily. I also take .5 mg. of Clonazepam 2x daily for extreme anxiety,stress ptsd related to the car accident. Anyway, it helps my pain (not with the nerve pain) but, I have loss my appetite completely. Lost 11 pounds in 5 months and I was a healthy, athletic weight prior. Not sure if it is the depression, meds, combo.
Avatar n tn My energy fades in the evening and my workouts are still not 100% but every single day gets me a little closer. Something I am so grateful for today is for New Year's Resolutions. For the last 4 years I never made them, I would come up with some cynical retort about how "lame" they were. The truth is that I knew that I only had one to make and that was giving up the tram, which was something I did not think I could do.

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?
Avatar f tn and last summer when I went back home for almost 2 weeks I was concerned about having enough meds.... I'd LOVE for this time to not have to worry about anything like that!
Avatar f tn The loss-gain equation is entirely mechanical and mathematical and I don't care WHAT Jenny Craig says. If the amount of energy going IN is MORE than the amount expended -you gain; if the amount going in is LESS than that expended, you lose. Period. Does Celexa cause your burn rate to slow down? Maybe.
Avatar n tn I'm taking Topamox, Alyesse, Inderal,Tramadol, and Phenagren (spelling). I went and did the whole acustaple for weight loss, it did cut my appepitie down, and i lost 5 pounds. Although I wanted to start exercising, but within the first 2 weeks, i fell down some stairs and broke my foot in 3 places. So i haven't been able to walk on it 3 months.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I have been taking 10-15 Tramadol 50MG for about 5 years now and I am trying to get off of them. I have tried tapering down and that is not working... I have gotten myself to the point that I am out of medication and I am now dealing with the withdrawal symptoms without any relief. I cannot handle the restless leg and the sweating and chills along with not sleeping. I have called my dr to see if he can call me in anything to help with the symptoms but I don’t think he will help me out.
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.
