Tramadol Overview

Tramadol (marketed as the hydrochloride salt by Janssen Pharmaceutica as Ultram in the United States, Ralivia by Biovail in Canada and many other companies throughout the world) is a centrally-acting atypical opioid analgesic with additional serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake-inhibiting effects used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.[4] It was launched and marketed as Tramal by the German pharmaceutical company Grünenthal GmbH in 1977 in West Germany, even though it would take a...

Qutting Tramadol with Suboxon
This is the first message I have ever left in a Tramadol forum so I apologize if it isn't in the right location. I just wanted to tell a little about my story. I have been addicted to Tramadol for the last 4 years. My doctors assured me that it was not addictive and was a great option for my pain. I have had multiple surgeries on my knee and have chronic pain and for a while the Tramadol did help. But it didn't take long before I realized that I also like the way that I felt when I took it. As time went on the dose didn't do it for me so I kept taking more and more. For the last few months I was up to 40 -45 of them a day. It was a constant struggle to keep myself supplied and was costing me a small fortune. Other than my addiction my life is great. I own a successful busine...

tramadol after August 18??
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...

dorvasal
I am looking for some information about this drug. ## have been given dorvasal but know nothing of contents. does anyone know what is in here. ## I am sorry, I can't find anything listed. Did you spell it correctly? ## My mom has been taking Dorvasal for past 4 years. It was prescribed by a doctor in Mexico. As per him it is not a steroid and it contains DMSO (DiMethyl Sulphoxide) It really helped my mom with her Rheumatoid Arthritis for about 3 years or so; but unfortunately now her pain is back (even worse) and she is showing a lot of other side-effects like dizziness, spinning motion in her head, nausea, mouth ulcers, skin rashes, insomnia etc. We are not sure if they are caused by Dorvasal as she is taking few other medications like Tramadol Hydrochloride (analgesic painkiller) ...

red round pill no markings scored
I received this pill from out of the country. Its a fairly big round red pill. Scored on 1 side with two lines. Its suppose to b Tramadol 200 mg ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? What country is it from? When it comes to foreign pills with no markings, it's likely going to be difficult to determine a positive ID. However, if you can post back with more details, such as what country it's from, I may be able to find something. Thanks! ## i have a red round large pill with 2 scores and no imprint it's supposed to be a oxycodone 30 & its From overseas. is that what it is? ## this is tramadol 225mg slow release. ive seen it as round red/dark pink with either a strawberry, capital R,or 225 marking and scored on the other side. even though its slow release, be very careful of such...

Tramadol withdrawal terrible stomach pain
Hello. I have searched the web and can't seem to find a problem like mine while coming off tramadol. I have horrible stomach burning and pain that extends down both sides of my rib cage. It happened once before when I was coming off tramadol and you think I would have learned to stay away from this poison. Has anyone else had pain and terrible burning down both sides of their rib cage when coming off tramadol? This is day 2 for me. I am hoping it goes away soon ## I think it's safe to say that Tramadol withdrawal symptoms can be quite similar to the side effects of those who are still taking the drug. According to the mayo clinic, severe abdominal or stomach pain is reported to be a normal, but serious side effect of Tramadol (that should be reported to your doctor). I don't...

small oval white pill one side 377
attempting to identify ## tramadol Tramadol is a narcotic-like pain reliever. Tramadol is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Tramadol extended-release is used to treat moderate to severe chronic pain when treatment is needed around the clock. Tramadol may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. ## This is a 50mgs Tramadol tablet, a generic for Ultram. It is considered an opiate. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, dry mouth, constipation and drowsiness. If anyone has more information, please post! ## I am NOT a fan of Tramadol! It landed me in the hospital, I had a grand mal seizure from it. All I wanted was to take something other than percocet or vicodin for my herniated discs. The dr told me I'm better of taking 1 of them instead...

Tramadol HCL Safety And Potency Past Expiration Date
I pulled a muscle in my lower back and am in a lot of pain but am unemployed at the moment and can't afford to see a doctor and fill a new prescription. I found an old bottle of Tramadol HCL 50 MG with an expiration date of 3/22/2007. It has been stored in a cool, dark, dry cabinet all of this time. Does Tramadol HCL become unsafe or lose its potency after its expiration date, especially this long after? ## Unsafe no, loss of potency yes! In the original factory sealed bottles that your pharmacy receives, most medications are only good for 3 years, once those are opened and they are placed in a bottle that exposed them to heat and light, they degrade faster and will lose potency. Learn more Tramadol details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Thanks for the reply Ver...

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...

drug name dorvasal
small & round, orange ## My mother has been suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis for last 10 years. We found out about Dorvasal from an RA forum. An RA doctor in Mexico prescribed Dorvasal for my mother. She took it thrice a day with analgesics for 4 years and we saw good results with her mobility and pain control. However lately she is complaining of dizziness, spinning motion in head, mouth ulcers, itchy skin and skin rashes, insomnia. We abruptly stopped Dorvasal because of these side effects and now her condition has really deteriorated. She is bed ridden now. Does this drug contain any steroids? Also we are not sure if the side effects were because of Dorvasal or the analgesic pain killer (Tramadol Hydrochloride) she has been taking. (She also has hypertension and high blood pre...

Tramadol from Mexico - green/yellow Capsule
A friend brought home a factory sealed bottle labeled Tramadol (Tramed) 100 mg from Mexico. They are green and light yellow capsules with no imprint. Any idea whether this is really 100 mg Tramadol? ## Hello, Gabes! How are you? No, I'm sorry, but the relevant word here is Mexico, they don't regulate their medications much, if at all, so it's hard to be certain. However, I'll do some searching and see what I can find out for you. This is 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.
