Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol vs naproxen


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.

544292 tn?1268886268 com/Q/How_bad_is_Tramadol_withdrawal Question - How bad is Tramadol WIthdrawal? Answer - Ultram (Tramadol) Withdrawal Tramadol is highly addictive. Normally your doctor would reduce intake slowly. Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here.
544292 tn?1268886268 Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc). Rare in opiate withdrawal.
10805050 tn?1420939120 That's interesting, I've seen the conflicting info before on Tylenol vs Ibuprofen. I don't know why different advice is given: maybe it depends on varying factors for different patients? In my case, my platelets are in the 60's so maybe that's why I was told Tylenol vs an Nsaid which could thin the blood?
Avatar n tn Hey-- I'd say to you to take Ultram (Being the most effective non-opiate pain reliever) --However, we all know what tramadol turns into in the hands of the likes of us. Even though it's not suggested, I've had to take mega-doses of ibuprofen before, and it seems to work in those high doses. I'm talking about 1000-1600 milligrams.
356518 tn?1322267242 - Meloxicam is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in adults. Maloxicam contains Naproxen sodium 220 mg (naproxen 200 mg) which is also a NSAID. It's probably better known as Aleve. Given the fact that you have an inflammatory/degenerative disease processes going you probably require a NSAID - however it's obvious given your daily pain that you may benefit from an added opiate. There are more opiates than you listed.
363110 tn?1340924019 I found out they included that in my letter as a mistake but I told them I was interested in that as the pain relief lasts a lot longer than the epidural injection (6-9 mos vs 6 weeks and in Sherry's case 20 months!!! That's fantastic Sherry!). They said that at my 6 week follow-up appointment at the end of April we would discuss it more as a possibility.
Avatar n tn here's what I know to be true, a pharmacist has 6 years of training in drug reactions and interactions, a physician has 1 year only. One vs. 6...hmmm... who should we listen vote is a pharmacist!!! Also the verdicts are clear one that one has to look at the whole patient profile. Toxicity is common with tylenol, even in children, certainly in sick livers, and unless one was early stage and no conflicks with ones P450 profile....
1331115 tn?1401672466 Hi there, I've been following your story and am very happy for you. It took a pretty "big set" to throw those pills overboard. As for addiction Vs. dependance, only YOU can make that call. If you Google "NA, Am I an addict?". You will find a pamphlet that may help you answer this question. If you never abused them, you may very well only be dependant which will make your situation much easier. You DO NOT need aftercare if you are merely dependant. As for the pot....

Avatar n tn They wouldn't help me, wrote me a prescription for naproxen and flexeril...neither of which works. I take handfulls of ibuprofen and naproxen daily, my stomach is a mess and I'm miserable. I sincerely hope you're among those who find answers....good luck to you.
356518 tn?1322267242 I take anti-depressant for PTSD and for the fibromyalgia, I take lyrica, tramadol, supeudol, which is oxycodone. I've been reading for a few days and you guys have giving me hope.
Avatar m tn but i just keep taking tramadol everyday for the past 9 months. non-narcotic works well but you have to eat with it. sometimes i need to back it up with ibuprofin. was told by someone ligitimate that it could take up to 18 months to heal from a stent removal. told this to my doc and he said "ive never heard of that" but why would they. stents stay in such a short period of time and there is no alertnative. the terms of 4 days vs 18 months. people would freak right?
Avatar n tn It felt like I had a ball of muscle cramped up under my shoulder blade and while it wasn't exactly agony, it was annoying! Flexorils and Naproxen helped a little and I would grind my shoulder blade into a door frame to "massage" the area... and it completely vanished after a week or so... and two days later my right shoulder started to ache - which got worse and worse.
Avatar n tn Anyway, long story short, I went, he sent me for an MRI and physical therapy and prescribed a muscle relaxer in addition to Naproxen. The MRI showed I have cervical spondylosis, which is like arthritis of the spine, and there is a herniated disk pressing on a nerve root that goes to the places I'm having pain. I'm still in the process of seeing if physical therapy will help - they give you exercises to strengthen the muscles around the joints so there will be less stress on the joints.
Avatar n tn I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp? No heavy weight lifting for me. I guess that would be anything that causes me to strain.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Topamax for about eight months as an appetite suppressant.I was also taking Naproxen for joint pain which I discontinued in August. Hair loss can also be a side effect of this drug! My dermatologist confirmed my fears two days ago that my hair is "shedding". I am very depressed. I was not sure what was causing it. I have been very careful to get enough protein and vitamins in my diet. And actually the way I have lost the 50 lbs.
Avatar n tn and 1 for ultram (tramadol). Ive taken countless ibuprophen and diuretics for pain and swelling which you need to know, the swelling has been HORRIBLE! To the point where i have been in tears on countless occasions because of the level of discomfort and weight gain. And on the topic of weight gain, i dont care what any doctor or ANYONE says, the Paragard DOES cause weight gain. I am a fit and active person and have maintained my weight for years. I HAVE GAINED ALMOST 15 POUNDS!
