Tramadol with aleve

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol with aleve


Avatar m tn Anyone have experience with Tramadol? I'm going through WD's and come across some. I'd like to take for my pain, but not if it's going to reset WD's -- anyone familiar with this situation? Sorry for having 2 topics. I'll be waking up from day 5... if I hurt as bad as i do today, I'm not sure I can stay away from the percs... I'd rather do Tramadol if it wont help. Worse case scenerio - I'm 2 days away from the Vics, *MY* big vice. I want to go a month, not sure that I can...
Avatar m tn With the film, it's tough to give exact dosage but I would guess about .25 - .30 per day. Today is day 5 with no suboxone, and day 1 with no Tramadol. Course... the tramadol was only a 4 day ordeal and I learned more about it so stopped taking immediately. Any idea as to how long this lethargy will drag on? I'm self employed and I need to work.
Avatar m tn I think it's fantastic that you are getting off the Tramadol. My brother committed suicide, and yes, it was due to Tramadol. PLEASE just hang in there, and don't go can do it!!!! Be strong, and be safe! This drug is not worth taking, and will ruin your life if you continue to take it. The dosage you were initially taking was wayyyy to high! My brother was at about 30 pills a dangerous! Good can do it!
176495 tn?1301284012 First time I've had a chance to tell him I've been off of Tramadol for nearly 3 months (he wanted to put me on them again for my headaches)..I told him "no" and why and he repeated the mantra that tramadol is not addictive. "perhaps not when used as directed, but I can tell you case after case of people i know who have become addicted to it and go through worse withdrawls than many other opiates. He was quite surprised.
1824921 tn?1317532274 yes you brain needed it and when it got fed. it felt better. take motrin or aleve. hot bath with epsom salt. in the morning get hylands restful leg supplements, at walgreens,walmart,rite aid. magnesium and potassium supplements help and so do foods high in potassium, bananas is one.
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 m tn Hi judy, I think what you're experiencing is rebound pain - I had that too for a while after I quit. The pain did get better with time and I'm able to manage it now with OTC pain meds (aleve and excedrin). So I think you can be hopeful that it will be the same for you too. Especially since you say you weren't taking as much as some of us, that will only work in your favor as you continue to move forward. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn I was prescribed tramadol 50 mg. 4xday three years ago for back pain. The doctor whom I like very much and is the head of a large pain clinic assured me that it was not addictive as long as I did not abuse it and I have never one time taken more than prescribed. Sometime back I decided to go off it as my appetite was affected and my skin, (especially my legs), itches. The only good thing is that I lost 40 pounds and am now back to a size 12.
1740218 tn?1312019461 Well, Aleve is obviously a great help, to the malevolence that act-up, inside of my limbs and body. I just hope that the third day will be better than the last two days about to pass. And to think; the third day will be my birthday. How ironic, I suppose. Arms are becoming even more troublesome to weigh on: they are hurting worst than my legs and back. Should I start taking vitamins? Anything to make my body healthy and have strength again?
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 f tn I have a 14 month old son and I was still taking the tramadol and smoking while I was pregnant with him. ( I know it's horrible so please spare me the lectures). Thankfully my son was born healthy with no issues so far. I am currently 8 months pregnant with my baby girl now. I stopped smoking when I found out I was pregnant and knew I wanted to stop the tramadol also. This sounds weird, but when you are a smoker and taking tramadol, you get a certain high feeling whenever you smoke.
639872 tn?1223338275 However i also figured out that the demon isnt the same for everyone. I am now on 24 hours with no tramadol. I have no idea if this is good or just the start of the torture. i have read so much but it isnt sinking in. Could someone anyone give me something to go on. I just dont know whats going to happen and I am scared. I know i should have tappered but i want it out now. How long will this last? When will it be completely be out of my system.
Avatar n tn I don't know if I am right, but reading here the past three months of other people's experience with tramadol, I believe it might be even harder to come off than Vicodin, it sure seems to take longer, but you just have to be patient, you will get better!!! I bought some Kratom as well, but never had the guts to use it, because I had leaves and no scale to measure it with, so I was afraid of getting too much, but if it helps you, then great. Hope you will soon feel better.
Avatar m tn I am currently in a tremendous amount of pain in my fingers, elbows, shoulders, left knee and left hip. Volteran gel has not helped at all and neither has Aleve. Can I take tramadol with these two drugs? I have recently switched my insurance and am waiting to get into a new rheumatologist.
Avatar f tn Benadryl syrup rec dose (u need someone there for baby with this) OTC: Aleve rec dose Scrip: Clonidine pills not patch, half dose to cover baby Scrip: Benzo's (u need someone there to watch baby) Don't mix two things that make you sleepy. Safest would be Immmodium and Aleve. Clonodine is best of all, but would be issue with baby. Much better detail on these in other forums. I've helped raise two kids and don't know how single moms do it. You are a true hero, keep fightin!
5262038 tn?1415316185 I'm coming off tramadol that I've been on for 3 weeks with my lock jaw. Feeling really alone, sluggish and just down. Looking for encouragement.
Avatar f tn I have a full week of almost intolerable pain every monthl. Tramadol is one of the few drugs I can tolerate with regards to nausea (Vicodin et al seem to just make me puke immediately), and it does actually manage to relieve my pain fully or at least 80-90% (when I mix it with Aleve). The problem is this. I have to admit that I enjoy the Tramadol. It makes me feel good. Of course it does -- it makes everyone feel good.
Avatar f tn The next few weeks your pain is going to seem a lot worse your body wants its fix .For me now I can handle my pain with aleve and zanazflex about 95% of the time .Since I have stopped tram my pain level has gone down.Give your body some time .Things will get better hang in there.
Avatar m tn Some people with nerve pain say that Tramadol works well for them better than other opiates. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn i just ask cuz i think thats y i never had issues with t3's they just dont do n e thing for my after my history with oxy's, seems theres just so many ppl on here with issues with tram, i have asked my doctor if he would take a look at this website and see for him self the patients how suffer with tramadol then maybe he would understand my concerns you know?
199177 tn?1490502134 What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking tramadol? You should not take tramadol if you have ever been addicted to drugs or alcohol, if you are currently intoxicated (drunk), or if you have recently used any of the following drugs: alcohol; narcotic pain medicine; sedatives or tranquilizers (such as Valium); medicine for depression or anxiety; medicine for mental illness (such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia); or street drugs.
Avatar f tn Taking tramadol to lose weight is the worst possible way to do that. Good luck with your pain and be REALLY careful with the tramadol. I was addicted to it for over 6 years and it got out of hand really quickly. Good luck to you.
Avatar m tn Well, Tramadol withdrawals are not fun. Psychological addiction has little to nothing to do with your problem. Two years of dosing on Tramadol is your main problem. (pure physical addiction) I just read the post of a guy who quit Tramadol and is on day 45 and is only about 65% back to normal. Tramadol withdrawals can be drawn out for up to weeks to months and can be very acute, pain wise.
Avatar f tn The worst part is not having an ounce of energy I came off Effexor last summer, because the Tramadol helped with the depression. We've had a long cold winter, and the Tramadol stopped working for my chronic back pain and the depression. My Dr. told me to get back on the Effexor because my mood was really flat and I had started crying and becoming overly emotional. That's when I knew I needed to make some changes with my meds.
Avatar f tn Stay strong! Tramadol is a very hard drug to detox from. It has an anti depressant in it. Please keep your head up and know it gets better. Try this today even if ur feeling like crap. Smile at yourself in the mirror. Hope is the reflection in your mirror. Keep posting. The people here are amazing and TRULY care. Have you got aftercare lined up for yourself?
Avatar n tn But I think by tapering, supplementing with some long acting OTC pain meds (Tylenol, Aleve - have about same duration of action as Tramadol), and supplementing with some natural anti-depressant remedies 5-HTP (St. Johns Wort, etc.) it should make getting off it less difficult. Not EASY, but put some thought into it, aka "A Plan" and you should be fine. This is just my opinion based on my own experience.
Avatar n tn And Last month, I took to many, 4 at one time. Yes I been addicted to hydro codone for 3yrs now. And tramadol seemed to help me with the aches and pains. Plus use lyrica. I cant use narcotics, i will relaspe bad on them. well anyways, that day i took 4 tramadol at once , bout a hr later i was driving home, i blacked out in the car. had a major accident. thank goodness i didnt hit anyone else or kill anyone else. Its so easy to become addicted to a drug, and nothing to be ashamed of.
511488 tn?1214624096 TO ALL OF YOU TRAMADOL USERS AND ABUSERS: I have been reading on here how many people are users and abusers of tramadol. I have a very important message for you that you may not be aware of. DO NOT take tramadol if you are already taking any anti-depressant called an SSRI (serum-serotonin re-uptake inhibitor). If you are unsure if your med is an SSRI, ask your pharmacist (many anti-depressants are). They is a contraindication with these two meds.
