Tramadol Overview

Tramadol (marketed as Ultram, and as generics) is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.[4] When taken as an immediate-release oral formulation, the onset of pain relief usually occurs within about an hour.[5] It has two different mechanisms. First, it binds to the μ-opioid receptor. Second, it inhibits the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine.[6][7] Serious side effects may include: seizures, increased risk of suicide, serotonin syndrome, decreas...

tramadol after August 18??
91 Replies RSS
Hearing lots of places that the people who order tramadol via internet will no longer be able to. I live in a town with uptight doctors who charge outrageous prices plus insist on doing constant testing before writing a prescription. If true what are my option after Aug 18 ## i wish i had an answer for you, i have been using it for 3 years, more as a anti-depressant. I take 200 mg a day and feel good, certainly not intoxicated. This decision by FDA is ridiculous. Tramadol is not in the same class as Percs and Roxys etc. Unbelievable. I can go to Dr but i will be spending mad $ on their BS. Prices in the international market will now be inflated as well. The market is risky unless you know credible sources. ## Tramadol will become a Controlled Substancde Schedule IV in Aug. But, Schedule...

Tramadol and Oxycodone for pain
1 Reply RSS
I have pain issues since I had surgery where I ended up with chronic pain. My Dr. Says she thinks it comes from adhesions and scar tissue and does not me to have any more surgery it was reccomeded that I go to a pain clinic which I do. They have given me prescriptions of one oxycodone 5-325 every morning and 50 mg tramadol four times a day as needed. How addictive are these?also if a person does have withdrawal ,what actually happens that you have to deal with?I don't know much about the different pain meds. I was taking zolipin as a sleeping aid and I heard about melatonin instead so I tried that and it really does well. I no longer take the zolipin every night as most nights the melatonin does fine. Thanks ## Hello, Becky! How are you? Both Tramadol and Oxycodone are classified as...

Been called by "Officer John Montgomery"?
1 Reply RSS
Has anyone gotten a call from a guy (Officer John Montgomery), says he is with fda in DC regarding recent investigation on some pharmacy? I've gotten a call before by some guys who were scamming people and I am suspicious. ## Yes, I got the same call from a detective John Montgomery from the FDA threating to take action against me. When I called the number I could not get through to anyone so I looked up the number and all this is a scam. Tell JM to take a walk!

The package is from India by Zenlabs. The pills are round and light orange. They are in a blister pack containing 10 tablets and Labled as Tramadol Tablets with the name Zendol-SR. it claims to be 100 mg of sustained relief Tramadol ## From what I was able to gather, Zendol is a product of India.

I am having severe tooth pain on left upper molar. inside of mouth is swollen, gum swollen, left side of face swollen, tooth feels slightly loose. I have constant throbbing nerve pain. tonight is a weekend night. I need something to help with pain until I can get to the dentist tomorrow. Pain is unbearable without meds. is it okay to take cyclobenzaprine, tramadol, trazodone, ibuprofen, and tramadol together? that is how painful tooth pain is. ## I am very sorry about the dental problem that you're having. However, you shouldn't take any medication that hasn't been prescribed for you and neither the Trazodone, nor the Cyclobenzaprine will do anything to help with the pain or infection. Trazodone is antidepressant that also helps with some cases of severe insomnia and Cyclobe...

tramadol active ingredients 50mg
1 Reply RSS
Does tramadol 50mg contain codeine? The pharmacist that I spoke to while picking up the prescription assured me that it does not. I'm severely allergic to codeine and as I read the packet I got with the medication it says if you are severely allergic to codeine to not take this medication. Please help. ## Hello, Nicole! How are you? No, the pharmacist was correct. Tramadol is the active ingredient, it is a mild opioid analgesic. Thus, the FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. If you are allergic to one narcotic, there is always a risk that you may be allergic to others, but it isn't a very common occurrence. Tramadol itself, however, is not Codeine. Is there anything ...

white round pill with an 627
41 Replies RSS
I just rec'd 30 of these, but they have NO effect. Tooth/gum pain. Am used to oblong tramadol tablets - which, although weak, have an effect on my pain. Now we're getting these AN 627s. These are like placebos. ## these are the REAL thing, not a placebo. They are the SAME as the oblong tramadol. ## AN 627 does contain 50mgs of Tramadol, however, there can be some differences in generic drugs, so they may not work as well as the others you were getting. ## These don't seem to be as strong as some of the other tramadol I have taken, such as the Mylan. I don't know why. There should be no reason for this. If u buy a genertic it should act the same as a brand. This pill should be reported and looked into to find out what we are spending money on. It works, but not as strong ...

what is stronger than the ah 627 for severe pain
1 Reply RSS
with neuropathy of the legs & deterioration on the verterbae in the neck #5-#8, i need something mellow feeling & strong enough to combat the pain: what is the next level above ah647? ## Hello, Angela! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 50mgs of Tramadol, which is actually a very mild opioid analgesic. Thus, most others available are stronger, including Norco, Dilaudid, Roxicodone and many others. Have you discussed it with your doctor? They should be able to help you discover which one might be best for you. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness,...

Found these in unmarked Rx bottle at home. Wondering what they are & are used for. Am thinking they are a pain med left over from my knee replacement surgery. ## Hello, Dixie! How are you? You are correct! These tablets are manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 50mgs of Tramadol. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks for the info! Didn't want to get rid of them the wrong way. Definitely don't want to flush these!!! I really appreciate the prompt reply. I'll call the pharmacy to ask how to discard.
