Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol vs morphine


1529480 tn?1291880734 My doctor prescribed me 90 15mg morphine sulf ER for a month then I went up to 90 30mg morphine sulf ER. I also was getting 60 5/325 percocets for breakthru pain. I left that doctor to completely get off of the pain killers. I recently went back because I need them due to more pain. He gave me 120 5/325 percs for the first month, then he told me he wanted me directly back on the morphine. I almost cried because I do not want on the morphine.
Avatar n tn See, that is what confuses me. I was told by a Dr. that he would give me tramadol vs the hydro b/c it was non-narcotic. It is then indeed a narcotic I take it. See, this Dr was not my family fam. doc sent me there. It was a pain management clinic. Although the new Dr. still had me on my hydro, he did want me to taper from them. So when he suggested giving me the tramadol I bailed on him faster than lighning. I told my Dr. I will no longer see this man.
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 I am quitting Tramadol for the fourth time. I've been taking it off and on for 4 years. I know about the severity of getting off the drug as I have done it several times. Each time I get off it I find a way to get more (internet) and start again like a fool. This time I tried to taper off to 150 mg/day and thought quitting would be easier... it's not. Usually for me the first day is not so bad, (still in my system), but the second day is not good.
403399 tn?1201836695 They don't give me the same high as HC or Vicodin, but I have heard they are still addictive. Any advice?
541953 tn?1262589826 I can't tell you how it holds up to Morphine, because I'm allergic to Morphine, but I do get fairly good pain control. I've heard that It's stronger than Morphine but I have also heard some people argue that it is not. The only thing that I would wonder is if you have anything for breakthrough pain. I find that I do need breakthrough pain meds. Oh and the drug is oxymorphone hcl. Hope that helps and good luck to you.
Avatar f tn however, they can easiliy wean him/her using morphine over a week or two, and safely monitor vs now, when you are carrying the baby and they can't monitor how the baby feels. which, if you feel withdrawal so does baby! with that said...i feel like, if you can taper, and NOT feel withdrawals, I would think that would be safe. another thing to think about, is since you are getting these drugs on teh street i assume?
Avatar f tn He thinks its better to be on Tramadol vs. vicodent. The orthropeadic surgeon says I am NOT to get any steriod or any other injections into the shoulder, as pain is originating from my neck. Its really impossible to sleep on my back or left side, which leaves the right side and I continually wake up and feel like a knife is stuck between my chest and shoulder blades. I really don't know where to go from here. I do see the pain magagement doc next week, but that really doesn't give me answers.
Avatar n tn opioid effects. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being pure morphine and 1 being Darvocet, Tramadol isn't even a 0, it's a -1. If you were responsible for three years, and your doctor wants to move you down the scale of effective pain relief, as I said, find a new doctor.
413886 tn?1203610951 I would plan a time when you have 3-4 days free and just make the jump. I was taking morphine an vic by day 5 I was feeling good enough to go to the gym and swim. Good luck on whatever decision you make.
432223 tn?1206552625 30 pm. I also take blood pressure meds and meds for high chelestol. I have an appointment tomorrow with my Rheumy to see if my meds need to be upped some. I do understand how having chronic pain and chronic fatigue can make you have feelings of checking out, been there more than once, but then I think of how badly my family would be hurt and how much I want to be here with them. If you need to talk, I'm here.
Avatar f tn Time to decide your life or purgatory via Tramadol... Carelessly going on walks and enjoying your personal freedom vs stressing over pills, everything pills, how many pills, do I have enough pills, stressing over tapering and not having any pills, stressing over telling your doc but then you may not have any more pills. Its a vicious cycle that never stops! Time to make a decision and become healthy and save your life!
