Tramadol side effects in the elderly

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol side effects in the elderly


Avatar n tn Ultram should not be taken for nerves, hot flashes or depression. It is very addictive and at the dosage you are taking you can expect some withdrawal after a month or two. I would taper it off slowly and hope for the best. Ultram withdrawal can be bad and can last for quite some time.
Avatar m tn Tramadol could raise your heart rate, and Synthroid does elevate the metabolism, However Thyroid Disease is a Cause of elevated BP and Cholesterol levels, Si I doubt that the medications are responsible for your increased BP, I would advise sharing your concerns with your MD though.
Avatar m tn He would also get confused, like when my other dog would nudge him, he'd bark at her, and continue barking at her even after she'd left the room. He also had extreme hind end weakness and started urinating in the house. These side effects abated so slowly it was agonizing, even after we cut back on his dosage. Every day, however, he has been slightly better. Finally, at three weeks, we're putting away the plastic sheeting, and watching him play again with our other dog.
Avatar f tn My docs won't even consider tramadol or certain tricyclics for me since I have a history of seizures. However, in your case the benefit of pain relief might outweigh risk of seizure. Tramadol is quite helpful for many people (and even my elderly cat benefited from it late in his life), and has fewer side-effects and risks (other than seizures) than many other pain meds (e.g.: no decline in bone mineral density, as is often seen with many anti-seizure meds).
Avatar n tn yes they ALL have side effects on us and cats as well....the safest with the least side effects for pain are the following(for cats). please never use NSAID's. -bupronorphine(buprenex) -butorphanel(torbutrol) -and lastly tramadol(ultram) good luck to you and kitty, I hope you can find him some this late stage of his life and with so many health problems you need to give him the best quality for his time remaining...
Avatar n tn I was suffering through the night but I can deal with the discomfort. The problem was that my elderly dog was having a bad night and waking me up a lot. He is old, deaf and about blind and only weighs 4-5 pounds. He is so precious to me but I was horrid to him last night for waking me so much. I could have hurt him and I could not control my anger. At one point I was screaming at him and shaking him then tossed him in my yard.
Avatar f tn Good news I started running again playing football and packed up drinking because off the side effects off the pill but never came off the tablets I found them the only way to start and end the day. Recently it got to the point where I would rather stay in and pop more and more pills instead of socialising. Then last week my mate pointed out I looked like **** and was I ok. I looked in the mirror and noticed just no colour in my face and a withdrawn look.
Avatar f tn My mom can't speak or communicate and I am absolutely horrified at what she may experience. But the Tramadol side effects she is experiencing are life threatening. Her hospice nurse and ARNP have the attitude that I'm overly worried and that this won't be a "big deal" and their mindset is making me doubly anxious as they don't seem knowledgeable at all about this. My mom doesn't have another doctor. Any advice anyone could give me would be hugely appreciated.
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 Hi Tramadol Warriors, I know you can do this. People are here to help you. It's going to be ok.
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 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! Fred wrtes, "I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
