Tramadol withdrawal remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol withdrawal remedies


Avatar n tn Sometimes, a small dose of clonidine helps with withdrawal. Simple remedies like drinking lots of water, and taking hot baths can also help. Eating healthy, balanced meals, taking walks, daily aerobic exercise, meditation, and positive thinking are also quite useful, Avoid alcohol and caffeine if possible. Herbal teas containing camomile and valerian can calm your nervous system.
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 m tn My names is Brian and I need a forum for my tramadol addiction. I have taken tramadol for 4 years now and I have finally decided it's time to move on. I am slowly trying to kick it. I'm about four days in (since I made the decision) and I am down to taking 2 to 3 a day (up from about 8 to 10 a day). I'm starting to get jitters and I am having difficulty trying to focus. I also feel like my head is spinning. I'm really looking for a community of people that can help me get through this.
Avatar n tn I'm SOOOO glad to have found this community of folks who are experiencing the same types of withdrawal symptoms from Tramadol that I am experiencing. I was prescribed Tramadol (50 mg.... 1-2 pills every 4-6 hours for pain) a few months ago for a nerve problem in my leg which was causing considerable pain. My physician told me it is not addictive. I beg to differ...
Avatar n tn After only one month, it should be possible to taper down so that you have minimal withdrawals. We are not allowed to give specific taper schedules & you should consult a doctor who knows your personal medical history. However, in general, tapering involves a periodic reduction in dosage, (say 50 mg a week). Tapering enables your brain to adjust more gently to the change in serotonin & noradrenaline levels caused by the reduction in the antidepressant component of tramadol.
Avatar n tn It's action is such that discontinuation of Ultram will cause withdrawal symptoms. Ultram withdrawal is sometimes more prolonged than with narcotics. Your doctor may know nothing about this because many doctors think because it is not classified as a narcotic it is "safe" and has no addiction and withdrawal potential. My advice to you is to go back on the Ultram or a narcotic for a period of time and taper your dosage down by about 10% every few days.
Avatar f tn I was successfully addicted to tramadol for many years !!!! As IBK said tell us more tramadol can be just as addicting as other opiates. doctors are big on saying its not addictive but many of us found out the very hard way that was wrong ....
Avatar f tn Does anyone know any home remedies for Tramadol withdrawal? I've taken them for 2 months straight at least 6 a day and now feeling awful!!! Please help!
Avatar n tn As the morning goes on someone will be on to help you with that. Doing a fast taper..the withdrawal may not be to bad, not sure though as i said i went CT. Withdrawl feels like a bad flu. the worst being aroung day 5 but everyone is different. There are health pages here on the forum. Look up the Thomas recipe. It had help many here. Not sure about being done by Tuesday. Thats not even a week. We dont do this to our bodys overnight so it does take time for our bodys to heal.
Avatar f tn I was sick I felt horrible so I look online and realize tramadol withdrawal can be although at this point mentally I would say I was probably hooked. I was more scared to continue being sick! So I got more of course , and the rest is history for 4 long hell years. Tramadol was my drug of choice of course I would take vicodins , percocets, if that's what I could get because I knew they would hold back my withdrawal from tramadol.
Avatar f tn Hi I am 57 year-old female, in good health, but afraid of running out of Tramadol! I have used Tramadol since October1 to help me get off of Suboxone (a "detox drug," which I took as a "maintenance medication @2mgs/day for 3 years)which got me off a mild year-long Oxycodone habit). It's almost impossible to stop Suboxone, period. It's a Long-Acting Opiod Agonist, which is just med-speak for "some really sticky dope.
Avatar f tn ) By Saturday (just 2 days ago), I rested and still felt like I didn't have any energy (my doc said that Tramadol withdrawal is like having the WORST case of the flu times 10!!!...and she was right!) I went Trick-Or-Treating with my kids and slept 6 hours that night. Sunday was better than Saturday, and today is better than yesterday. I'm at work....just took my 1/2 tablet as prescribed and I feel SO MUCH BETTER. My appetite isn't back 100% (that whole ordeal caused me to lose 9 lbs!
Avatar f tn What a great and soothing feeling, that there is one doctor so concerning about this horrible and silent chaser of tramadol, I admire your concerning about this medication addiction.
Avatar f tn There are a few members who have experience with Tramadol withdrawal and they''ll post to you so keep checking back. In the meantime,any withdrawal is going to affect your life. You know that. But,certainly there are things you can do to help yourself along. First of all: Relax and don't worry! Next,you're wise to taper. Keep going down and go slowly. I think it may help you in the long run. You don't need to hurry it along. Just steadily decrease the dose. Keep your fluid intake high.
1316053 tn?1279513097 Quitting after several years of use was a nightmare, an experience also unfortunately shared with many others, irrespective of the reason they started taking tramadol. Emily Post who started the tramadol withdrawal journal here, has 70 pages, most with 200 entries from people who wish they had never brought tramadol into their lives. Tramadol turns on people because it was never designed or tested for long term chronic pain management.
Avatar f tn The physical pain I have is a welcome thing compared to the destruction of Tramadol and it's withdrawal. Anyway, just wanted to share yet another story of the Lie that is Tramadol and pray that someone does something to get this stuff off the market!!! Any attorneys or physicians out there? Why not break this thing wide open?

Avatar f tn Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I am addicted to tramadol and have been taking 30-40 pills a day for a year or more. I cannot stand it anymore and I surely cannot afford it anymore as tramadol has become much more expensive for smaller quantities lately. In any event, I was very ashamed of my huge habit and have had this secret for all this time. Nobody else knows at all....this is the first time I am able to be honest about it and I am grateful.
Avatar f tn Hi, I've been reading all ur posts for a month and hadn't had the courage to post myself but I need some help... I am tapering dow from Tramadol. I got tramadol from my Dr 8yrs ago and I enjoyed the energy it gave me so after my back pain was gone from my car accindent I just kept taking it for the energy. My Dr told me that it was not addicting and I could continue using it for minor pain... I was taking 12-50mg pills a day. I have been tapering down and I am at 2-50mg a day...
Avatar f tn Going down to 50mg tonight and in the morning.....I know its fast but I just cant stand this in my body. Ensure, Gatorade, a banana, chicken soup, a protein shake today along with vitamins and supplements tonight. Hope I sleep.

Avatar f tn The Catapress Patch is a good idea but only if it prescribed by your doctor and it's use is limited to a few days of withdrawal. I DO NOT recommend Tramadol or Lortab as options for detox. They are both highly addictive and the last thing you want to do is get addicted to something else. Again, speak with your doctor. I am sure they will agree. Let us know when you will be beginning and we can recommend some home remedies that will help ease the process.
Avatar f tn Hi Jen, it's good news that you are already down to 1 pill & are motivated to quit after only 7 months. Tramadol is indeed a crazy drug & your experience of withdrawals when dropping back from 2 pills to 1 is very common. For some tramadol users, the tolerance factor lead them to get up to 30 pills a day. I was on a low dose but for 5 years & both dose & length of time will effect the time it takes for your neurotransmitters to reset, so your prospects are good.
