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 serotonin syndrome, decrease...

Is this pill anything like lowertabs ## Hello, Peanut! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Northstar RX and they list it as containing 50mgs of Tramadol. The FDA classifies this medication as an opioid, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. However, it is weak in relation to the Hydrocodone in Lortab. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hair Loss from taking Tramadol hair coming out in chunks
Post a Reply
Hi I have been taking Tramadol for about 2 years now 100mg twice a day and I've just figured it out today that this is the cause of my hair loss I've always had thick hair and it has been coming out after washing my hair after brushing my hair or even running my fingers through my hair, mostly not much of my hair is left at the front wear I have a fringe and on the top of my head also the rest is so thin it's not funny. I'm freckling out big time. I told my doctor the other day I was worried cause I'm loosing too much hair, he said cause I'm on hormone replacement I won't lose it all. But he forgot to mention that it has been known to loose hair from taking Tramadol. Well I truely know what won't be doing anymore and that is taking Tramadol. I'm not sure

have tramadol ingredients changed?
1 Reply RSS
Did they charge the ingredients in tramadol or just the way it's scheduled and perscribed? ## Tramadol is the active ingredient, so that hasn't changed, just the scheduling and prescribing. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, 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?

can my 14 year old take tramadol
1 Reply RSS
She just got her tooth pulled and ut hurts really bad ## Hello, Arlene! How is your daughter doing? She can take, if it's been prescribed for her, but shouldn't be given to her otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as an opioid, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. If it wasn't prescribed for her, you should consult her dentist or doctor regarding what she can take. Ibuprofen or Tylenol may help. Holding ice against that area can also ease the soreness. Is there anything else I can help with?

Red flagged Question?
2 Replies RSS
Hi, so here is what is going on. I was diagnosed with Myofascial pain disorder when I was 23, brought on by trauma from martial arts (they suspect) I have been taking 100 mg of tramadol per day for 8 years, so 2 tablets a day. The pain causes chronic insomnia and depression, so Recently I saw a psychiatrist who prescribed me zolpidem for sleep. My primary prescribes tramadol. I have never had any issues until this week. I submitted my tramadol to be called to doctor for approval. In 8 years, it's always approved within a day. It's been a week, and the pharmacy claims they haven't heard from the doctor. I am worried I've been red flagged since I didn't tell my primary I am taking zolpidem. Not to be shady, just didn't think to. I'm afraid to call the doctor. H...

Refuse to prescribe
25 Replies RSS
I live in a very small town and the number of doctors here is limited. The number of good doctors is almost nonexistent. I'm finding that calling for an appointment as a new patient the office staff says right away, "We don't prescribe pain meds"! Also have heard "We don't take fibromyalgia patients"! This is said before I ever state what I need to be seen for. Assuming I did have pain, do I no longer have the right to have my pain relieved? I'm so offended by this. If you have chronic pain you are treated like a leper. Apparently it is automatically assumed you have a drug problem. Going to other towns is the same. No wonder people self medicate. Is this happening all over the country? ## Unfortunately yes, it is. Many people, all over the country, are h...
