tramadol hcl 50 mg/for coughing spasms?
Why would my ENT give this to me for coughing spasms? ## Hello, Janet! How are you? Tramadol can be used to suppress coughing spasms, it tends to suppress the cough reflex. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## no thank you very much. ## Give me a break tramadol is not an narcotic. I've been taking it for 6 years and it does help with pain. ## Thanks for the info. I'm not the least bit concerned that it could be addictive. ## Let me be clear, i have chronic pain and yes they can be habit forming and if you stop immediately you will feel discomfort for a few days but nothing compared to narcotics.

round white pill pc on one side scored opposite
I believe it may be from another country. Possibly thailand or afghanistan ## Hi, Penny! Where did you find it? I'm sorry, but so far, I haven't been able to find anything. The main problem is that the databases are for U.S. approved medications, because most other countries don't regulate their pharmaceutical items as strictly as the FDA does here and they don't usually require unique imprints like the U.S. does. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? I'll keep looking and post back when I find something. ## Actually a friend gave it to me and said it was Tramadol. Im not sure if he got it in Afghanistan or Thailand. He says it"s 200 mg. But I don't want to to try something that I'm sure what it is. I do take tramadol. Not sure what to do. ## Hello penn...

Tramadol 'Rare' Side Effects
My opinion is stay the hell away from this drug. I took it for less than a week for severe back pain. I experienced the following, all of which indicate a deadly allergic reaction and are supposed to be rare: -extreme swelling of the tongue to the point where my teeth were cutting into it; -trouble sleeping/night terrors; -constant itching at night that was affecting my sleep; -frequent feeling of having to urinate. The drug did barely anything for my pain and I had to up my dose within two days. That was when the side effects started. Again, not worth it. Please stay away. Pharmacists and doctors will insist that the drug is safe but it isn't. I've also personally talked to three people who have had seizures as a result of this drug. Ibuprofen will do as much for pain as Tramad...

Has anyone been on tramadol and then started on cymbalta too? I take 150 mg tramadol for a frozen shoulder am have been off Vicodin for a year due to its addictive properties. My Dr. added cymbalta due to increasing joint pain and ongoing depression with horrible morning depression. Just stopped taking 20 mg Lexapro. What have people noticed about combing these 2 meds? I want to function better but not develop serotonin syndrome. ## Hello, Mayvar! How are you? What dosage did he prescribe of the Cymbalta? That's the important factor regarding serotonin syndrome. Your dose needs to be carefully adjusted and your doctor should be monitoring you regularly so any symptoms can be caught early. ## It was the lowest dose of cymbalta, and I take 150 mg go tramadol.
