Tramadol Overview

Tramadol (marketed as the hydrochloride salt by Janssen Pharmaceutica as Ultram, and as generics) is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. It has two different mechanisms. First, it binds to the mu opioid receptor. Second, it inhibits the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine.[4] Tramadol is a centrally acting atypical opioid analgesic with additional serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake-inhibiting effects.[5] It is marketed as a racemic mixture of both R and S stereoisomers.[1] T...

Tramadol schedule 4?
I just found out from my Dr that tramadol is schedule 2 only in Louisiana? I was cut back to 2 a day! Is this really true? ## Hello, Sam! How are you? Yes, that is true, it was changed to a schedule 2, but not just in Louisiana, it's changed overall for the entire U.S. 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?

zendol sr tramadol tablets
Has anyone taken Tramadol ZENDOL - SR? I am curious what the affects are suppose to be and the difference between Tramadol HCL 50 mg? Is one more effective than the other? I have taken traditional Tramadol HCL 50 mg once every four hours and it doesn't help much. I was reading up on the Tramadol ZENDOL - SR 100mg and was wondering if I should ask my Dr. for something that may be more effective? ## No, it is the same medication, Zendol is just a foreign brand name for it and the SR shows that it is time released. 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. So yes, you may not get much more relief from it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi,i also tak...

anywhere to get tramadol after august 18?
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. Ive no health insurance either. Truth b told,i cannot function very well at all without taking the tramadol. So i am checking to see of anyone has any insight or suggestions as to where i may b able to purchase tramadol after the 18th of august which is when tramadol becomes a controlled substance. Im aware that ordering overseas is risky but going without the meds is not an option. I am very worried about the change in classification. I never expected anything like this to happen, had i known and not been ignorant to the possibility of not being able to order tramadol online i would have done something diffe...

need another drug for tramadol that can perscribed
I have been taking tramadol for going on 8 years and now walmart states they cannot fill this without a dea number and the clinic I go to, I see a nurse practioner and she has no dea number is there something she can prescribe me that will help and without having to have a dea number ## Your nurse practitioner is operating underneath a physician. They should be able to take care of this for you. They will have to use the physician's dea number. ## can you give me an idea of another drug the she can prescribe. ## Hello, Lewis! How are you? There are no other comparable mediations that will not require a DEA number. The options that don't are all mild analgesics, such as NSAIDs. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, s...

Tramadol Controlled Substance?
Is Tramadol considered to be a controlled medication. A narc med? ## I truly believe Tramadol is an addictive medication. I have been on this drug for 4 years. When i try to get off for a break it takes me about 10 days to feel norman again. i have chills, am ill tempered, I ache all over, i loose my appectite and I don't have the energy to move. My doctors have told me it was not addictive - but I beg to differ. ## I do agree with you i have been on it for 5-6 years and everytime i run out my body goes through some things feels like my body has spasma and cold and hot sweat what can i do? ## Same here, I go thru sweats & chills,ache all over&stressed & ill tempered,also.Dr.got me on celebrex now.But I heard on TV that it's caused Heart attacks & Strokes.Before t...

tramadol and acetaminophen
My husband has artheritis and is taking tramadol twice a day (50mg.) his dr. said he would take one every 4 hrs but he doesn't, so maybe that's why it does not help the pain very much... can he also take orycodine/500ms. acetaminphen with the tramadol ## Hello, Lillie! How is your husband doing? Before trying to add other medications, on your own, he needs to try taking it as prescribed, for awhile to see if that helps his pain. 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? ## Thanks!!!!!!But if it doesn't help, could he possibly taker the two together....

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...
