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...

Columbia sc pain med doctor needed!
1 Reply RSS
I have sciatic nerve issues that literally shoot from my hip/back down to my foot. My Dr will only give me an anti-inflammatory with tramadol which does nothing. I need to find a doctor that will give me some relief with pain meds. ## I'm very sorry that you're in pain. What type of doctor have you been seeing? Due to the new directives set forth by the DEA last year, most general practitioners are very reluctant to prescribe controlled substances, anymore. Thus, you'll likely need to see a pain management specialist. Tramadol, however, is classified by the FDA as an opioid now, so it does carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there a chance your current doctor could refer you to ...

Things I did to help

I was addicted to tramadol for three years. I was in bad car accident, and prescribed 4 50 MG tablets per day. At first they were great. Managed my pain, gave me energy, made me last longer in bed to name a few. Six months into my treatment I noticed I was always running out before my next refill. I went on line a Dr called me and I had 180 next day. This Dr per scribed me 8 50mg. I took this dose for two and a half years. I also started taking mmj which intensified the effects. My actual Dr said I didn't need any more. I disagreed because they help me. August 15,15 tramadol becomes a controlled subtance. Three weeks prior to this date I decided I was going to stop. I read on the internet that the best way to stop was to slowly take less over a few weeks. I had a hard time doing thi...

taking 50mg tramadol with 40mg oxycodone
2 Replies RSS
can I safely take 50mg tramadol with 40mg oxycontin? ## There is no way anyone here would be able to provide a reasonable answer to that questions. You should consult with your doctor to see if it is OK because everyone is different. That said: so long as you stick to the prescribed dosage of each, you *should* be OK. Are there any other medications you are currently taking, including over the counter medications or herbal medicine? Also, alcohol should be avoided while taking those medications. ## Don't mix anything with Tramadol. Especially narcotics. Never !! I dont care what anyone says dont do it. There are certainly other drugs that can be taken with Tramadol but Narcotics like Oky as you mention. No way ! It's just not worth the risk. Pick one or the other but not both.

where to get tramadol after Aug 14th?

Since tramadol is becoming controlled in August, what are my options? I've always gotten it from web-based pharmacies due to not having insurance. please help!!! ## Tramadol is no longer able to be obtained online without a Rx in the USA. Other countries may offer their version of it but I'd be careful with that. Tramadol itself is a very inexpensive medication... if your Dr. writes you a Rx for it you'll find that is very inexpensive. ## Let me know if you find out anywhere else to order this. I dread running out of my tramadol...ohhhh mmyyyy ## If you really need it as bad as you say you do, I honestly think your best bet would be to go the legitimate route and see a good doctor who can prescribe this for you on a monthly basis. You can always save money on your script by ...

Ive been taking tramadol for aprox 8yrs nonstop other than a 7week break. Ive back problems and my knees are broken down do to years of rough wear and tear on top of many injuries.

can tramadol help with my severe itching caused by my nerves ## Hello, Lois! How are you? No, Tramadol is classified by the FDA as an opioid analgesic, so it won't do anything to treat itching. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Have you consulted your doctor about the itching? Do you take anything for your nerve issues?

tramadol hab pharma

Ordered ol-tram 100mg for chronic pain issues. From HAB pharmaceuticals. Taken one capsule ( I open the capsule and tip it in my mouth, because I can't swallow tablets as I am a little baby, lol) Female, between 25 - 30 years old. Healthy weight. Will let you know how it goes. ## Has been 2 hours, feel fine, has taken the edge of pain, will take one more 100mg, should remove pain. So far no problems at all with HAB pharmaceuticals ol-tram. ## Has been 5 hours since first capsule, 3 hours since second capsule. Pain has subsided, feel fine, exactly same result as from any other tramadol. There is nothing wrong with ol-tram 100mg from HAB pharmaceuticals. I would question the motive from the previous person on this thread who says these are not effective. . . ## So how did you get your...

Overdose on 50mg Tramadol pills
1 Reply RSS
So I had taken tramadol a couple times in the past. I started out taking 6 pills at 50 mg each. The second time I did it I took 6 as well and my tolerance had already built up on them and they did next to nothing. A few days later I decided to up my dosage to 8 pills or 400mg along with about 1 1/2 beers. I got home that night and went to bed around midnight feeling pretty medicated. I woke up at 2:30am covered in vomit surrounded by paramedics wondering what the f*** just happened. Turns out I had a seizure and was throwing up the nastiest brown colored vomit I've ever seen. So they took me to the hospital and they did several tests, I never told them I OD'ed. While there I had serious back pain and after I got released I had some X-rays done, and from the seizure I had a compr...

I have taken vitamins, tramadol, oxycodone, hydrocodone and several others and they do not work. I regular physician is unable to prescribe stronger pains medication. I have gone to specialists and they do not know what is causing the severe bone pain. And the Doctors do not know who I should go to and what to do for me. I have insurance through the state which is a HMO, so I have to call ahead for approval. I would like to know what kind of Doctor to go to for stronger pain medication and can help find out the cause. ## Cheryl when was your last ct scan? sounds like they need to check your bone marrow.and maybe go to a mineral metabolism doc. the chemo an...
