Tramadol ibuprofen

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol ibuprofen


Avatar f tn He told him that he had taken ibuprofen for the pain. The ortho said ibuprofen was contraindicated as it interferes with bone healing. This was news to me, as well as to my NS's nurse. my NS has been out of town, but she said that she would ask him when he returns. Has anyone been told this? This seems significant for those of us healing from PFD surgery. I eat ibuprofen like tictacs.
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.
996658 tn?1249678769 I also have a history of addiction and abuse and get perscribed tramadol for lower back pain. Tramadol is as far as im aware addictive, it gets you high if you abuse it. If you feel you are likely to abuse it then i would advise you be straight with your doc. Taken properly there is no problem but over long term or in the event of bingeing, be very wary. Good luck.

Avatar m tn 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 About a week ago, I found an old prescription of Tramadol, written by my chiropractor so not even a controlled substance. I thought tramadol was like ibuprofen or aspirin, no big deal. On Sunday, July 20th, 2014, I took two tramadol tablets in a.m. 50 Mill each. Was 1st day not feeling suboxone WD's, and 1st day with-out any subox at all. Monday.... same thing. Two tablets of tramadol in a.m., no suboxone. Yesterday I took 1&1/2 tablets of tramadol and did same thing today. So...
Avatar f tn I am normally mobile and energetic on Tramadol and can leave the house, but on Bentyl I am sick in bed. Some relief from Bentyl, but not like Tramadol. When I don't take Tramadol, my only withdrawal is that I get extremely fatigue but that can also be from my IBS and pain. I have read before that if you stop taking Tramadol for a few days, then you will lose your tolerance for the drug and can start up again with good results. Does anyboy know anything about this?
Avatar n tn I'm confused about everything I've been hearing about tramadol (Ultram). I understand that it should be used with caution (or not used at all) amongst abuse-prone individuals, but the other info I've seen seems contradictive. I've seen some treatment centers advertise that they use tramadol to help with opiate withdrawal, yet I've also read that taking tramadol during opiate withdrawal can INCREASE withdrawal symptoms. Can someone set me straight on this? Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn Hi I've been suffering from severe eye pain and my pain control is not working well enough. I'm currently on Dihydrocodeine 30 mg 6 times daily. And I'm wondering if tramadol is stronger, the information I've found on this drug conflicts and I'm just wondering if you could tell me if tramadol would be stronger than the drug i'm currently using and wether it is adictive. And what type of drug is it, the only type of drug which helps my pain are narcotics nothing else does anything.
142841 tn?1201978652 All my previous hepatologists have steered me towards ibuprofen, because of the liver toxicity risk associated with acetaminophen. However, my doc has told me to definitely switch now to acetaminophen. My recent biopsy shows advancing liver disease due to hep c, I'm now stage3/grade3. My doc says that as liver disease advances, the risk to the kidneys from ibuprofen exceeds that to the liver from acetaminophen.
Avatar f tn Gday is there anyone in Australia on these forums having trouble with tramadol...I am in Queensland..
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any recommended medications that will help me get through tramadol withdrawal? I am struggling with withdrawal symptoms as I ween off of this medication. My doctor has not been helpful in assisting me with my withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar m tn I thought I was being good by taking Tramadol because it is non-narcotic. I was up to about 200 mg three times a day for back pain from an old car wreck. Three days ago I had a seizure and stopped breathing. My poor husband had to give me cpr, and my sweet 10 year old boy saw it all. I am so ashamed. I was taken by ambulance to ER. Got the CAT scan and EEG. have an appt. with a Neurologist in TWO WEEKS (you know how long it takes.) Meanwhile, I am in lotsa pain.
Avatar f tn But after taking so many pain meds, and needing to try a new one, he agreed to let me try Tramadol slowly. The Tramadol has worked well for me, and luckily I didn't have any problems with the combination of drugs. Actually the Tramadol has really helped my mood ( I think because of the snri). So I have started to taper off the Effexor. I was on 150, now taking 75 mg and will be starting 37.5 very other day for the next month. I hope this info helps you make a decision.
Avatar n tn I can also say that tramadol is addicting. I have been addicted to opiates for years, and went about 6 mos just taking tramadol to keep from getting "pill sick" Even when I went off the tramadol I was sick. So because it is opiate based, it is very addicting.
Avatar m tn With that said, I'm in day 5 off of the Tramadol and thinking I might as well tough it out. Threw the rest of my Tramadol out. How much longer can I expect to not sleep?
Avatar n tn Is there a specific way to taper off Tramadol after taking high doses for a long time? If so, please tell me what it is!
Avatar f tn I'm addicted to tramadol. I started taking it in January 1998 and have steadily increased the dose ever since. My doctor STILL says it's not addictive, and I can't tell him why I wanted to discuss it with him. He would go to my husband, and that would kill him. I know it's awful and sound impossible, but I'm taking 10 pills at a time just to maintain my "normal" state.
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 n tn I never understood ultram but as I have been off the Methadone now since April 13th of 2007 I had to take two to four ultrams a day here and there and now it is an everyday thing. The withdrawal from this Tramadol in my situation is the worse I had ever to deal witth in my life. I am familiar with Oxycontins, Lorcet 10/650's and a lot of stuff but these ultrams are overwhelming.
Avatar n tn I took Tramadol Hydrochloride for 6 months due to joint pain from my work. It worked wonders. I had energy, no pain, and happiness. But I began to notice that I had to take almost 8 pills a day to feel good. So I tried to stop. I cut dosage down little by little. I felt like ****. My body had this 'rushing' sensation of anxiety and aches. So now I have to take at least 1 pill a day just to feel normal.
Avatar n tn I am in the process of getting off of tramadol. It was prescribed for me for ocassional use for mild to moderate pain like headache, muscle soreness, etc. I used it only ocassionally for several months. About 4 months ago, I became involved in a fairly intense project and was experiencing more discomfort. Without really thinking much about it, I started using tramadol every day and then increased this to 2-3 times each day.
Avatar n tn i have blood work done every 3 mths and it has always been normal. i am worried that the tramadol and ibuprofen could damage my liver. i only take 7.5-750mg vicodin. wouldnt it be better to just take the vicodin again?
Avatar n tn Straight tramadol has no effect on inflammation unless it is combined with ibuprofen as in Ultracet, in which case it is the ibuprofen that is acting as an anti-inflammatory. Tramadol does seem to work for some chronic pain patients but due to the presence of the opiate commonly does have the same tolerance effects as other opiates. Dixie, as you have been on Darvocet for 10 years without developing any tolerance effects, you may find tramadol works for you.
439522 tn?1214954789 I tried cold turkey before (twice) and never made it this far. However, the Dr. prescribed me 50mg tramadol to use (like 10 refills of 60 pills). He said it is pretty strong, but less than codeine and not a narcotic. He would like me on this for my back injury. I took two 50mg today and couldn't tell a thing...but I have a feeling it is because I'm used to the hydro and oxy. Is it a lesser evil, or should I be worried? I am worried about the Tramadol...
Avatar n tn I am a 45 year old male who stopped taking Tramadol on July 1, 2008. I had been taking the drug for 27 months to relieve pain from two herniated discs in my back. When I stopped taking the drug, my dosage was down to only 2, 50mg pills per day. The withdrawal was abd still is a nightmare -- all the usual symptoms at first. I had no idea just how addicted I was to this drug until my Dr. refused to refill my prescription and told me to take Ibuprofen to deal with the withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar f tn (10-15 a day). I have a script for 15-50mg tramadol. Should I use the tramadol to help ease the lortab comedown? Will it even help? Or should I go cold turkey? I've read other posts about tramadol, and don't know which way to go. I do know I want my life back, and I can't afford the down time of the painful withdrawls I get. Experienced advice would be greatly helpful.
Avatar m tn Would I be setting the w/d back if I took one 50 mg tramadol? Not looking to get high just want the pain to go away. I don't want to do anything to set back the w/d but the last couple of days have been headache hell.
