Tramadol Overview

Tramadol (marketed as Ultram, and as generics) is 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, decreased alertness, and drug add...

hydro and tramadol

Does 50mg of tramadol potentiate 20mg hydro (2 10's) ## Hello Badkitty! How are you? No, they are not known to potentiate each other. According to the FDA, substances that may potentiate a narcotic include medications, such as Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen and Aspirin. 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?

Tramadol, codene,amitriptyline
Post a Reply
Ok hello guys, Basically I have a severe ankle injury sustained in the forces. And have recently been taking Codene twice with two amitriptyline at night and it was putting me to sleep and alleviating the pain. Then around saturday last week I couldn't sleep all night so I went back to the hostpital when having my ankle checked up back on and told the doctor I was having problems sleeping because of the pain. He prescribed me with 50mg to take 4 times a day for two weeks. I was only taking it for a few days and was still not sleeping not even a hour in the night. And I have stomach pains ( nausea) currently today last night I have not been on Tramadol for two nights now and still have Nausea and sleeping problems.

3 Replies RSS
What is the difference in the drug called Apo/Tramadol/Acet 325/37.5 mg to the drug Tramadol 300 mg. I have run out of my Trmadol and have the Apo/Tramodol on hand but am not sure of the dosage if it is the same? ## I take 100 mgs of Tramadol 2 times a day now 3 times a day I got hit by an 18 wheeler while in my wheel chair. I have not heard of the others,please let me know when you find out am interested. ## The other medication that has been mentioned is actually a combination medication that contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 37.5mgs of Tramadol, one of the name brands for it is Ultracet. Learn more Ultracet details here. The other ones that have been mentioned, such as the 100mg Tramadol and 300mg Tramadol is just that, a higher dose of Tramadol by itself, with nothing else added....

MY HUSBAND TAKES TRAMADOL FOR PAIN. IT HAS CAUSED HIM TO BE DEPRESSED. HE IS ADDICTED TO THE DRUG CAN'T FUNCTION WITHOUT IT AND HE IS ALWAYS ANGRE OR AGGITATED AT EVERYTHING AROUND HIM, HE CAN'T KEEP FOOD DOWN CAN'T SLEEP, NOW HE HAS TRIED TO STOP TAKING IT BUT IS ON A DOWN HILL DREPRESSED STATE... ## Well unfortunately our bodies can become dependent upon anything that we take regularly for a long period of time, anything from your morning orange juice to a cup of milk with dinner. There is a big difference between addiction and dependence though. To be addicted he would have to be abusing the drug, taking it more than prescribed and going to extreme measures to get more. Now the problem with dependence is that while the withdrawals are not as severe as addiction, you do su...

tramadol amneal vs mylan
12 Replies RSS
all our pharms here have switched to amneal.doesnt do a thing except give a headache. brand does make a differance.the mylan works great. ## Yes, there can be differences in generic medications. Once a medication is available to be made a generic, it is allowed to differ, in the active ingredient, from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20%. The FDA considers this an acceptable therapeutic window. The problem that you can run into, of course, is that generics do not have to measure against each other, just against the name brand. This means that while one generic may be high quality and contain 100mgs of a given medication, another generic may only contain 80mgs and another could contain 120mgs. Not everyone is sensitive to such changes and most people don't even notice, how...

white round pill with an 627
40 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 ...

i HAVE 4 BAD DISCS IN MY LOWER BACK ACCORDING TO THE MRI. I AM CURRENTLY TAKING 1- 50 MG TABLET OF TRAMADOL AT BEDTIME AND 1/2 IN THE MORNING. i TAKE THE OTHER 1/2 AROUND 3 IN THE AFTERNOON. CAN I GET ADDICTED TO THIS AMOUNT? ## Hello, Kay! How are you? They can be habit forming, but I think you're confusing dependence with addiction. It's dependence that occurs, when you take something regularly for a long period of time, because your body gets used to it. If you took them for a long time, then suddenly stopped, you'd experience some minor withdrawal effects. Addiction, however, occurs when someone abuses something, because they like the way it makes them feel. But since the way they feel is just due to the side effects, which wear off after awhile, they have to keep taking...

I HAVE BEEN TAKING TRAMADOL-SINCE MONDAY .HAVE TOOK 5 50MG PILLS SINCE TUESDAY .HAD A ALLERGIC REACTION TO THEM -ALL SYMPTOMS.HOW LONG WILL I SUFFER FROM THE REACTION? ## Hello, Linda! How are you doing? I'm sorry about what happened. What symptoms did you experience? It might take a week or so, before things start to ease up and you feel better. You should speak to your prescriber about it, to make sure it's listed in your medical records and not prescribed for you, again. 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. ## Hello! my boyfriend has took a half of subsolv 5.7 for about a week or so now.
