Tramadol Overview

Tramadol, sold under the brandname Tramal among others,[2] is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.[1] When taken as an immediate-release oral formulation, the onset of pain relief usually occurs within about an hour.[6] It has two different mechanisms. First, it binds to the μ-opioid receptor. Second, it inhibits the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine.[7][8] Serious side effects may include seizures, increased risk of serotonin syndrome, decre...

tramadol amneal vs mylan
53 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...

Taking Tramadol If You Cannot Metabolize Opiates
1 Reply RSS
My husband was prescribed oxycodone and morphine sulfate for daily use after an accident that resulted in incomplete quadriplegia. Over the course of four months, the EMT's were here six times to address opiate overdose. After more strenuous physical therapy sessions, he would become completely gray in pallor and we could not wake him up. Twice he stopped breathing prior to help arriving. I administered CPR until their arrival, at which time they would inj. narcan, and boom! He's back. The first episode resulted in my totally monitoring his medication, documenting dose/times in a prescription diary and posting current status of his medications on a white board. He was not even taking two-thirds of what he was prescribed, because it was too strong, and we had yet to adjust his do...

cas n i take tramadol

2 Tylex and 1 50mg tramadol for severe rib pain. Is it ok? ## They shouldn't be taken together, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so, because contain opiates, so doubling up might result in overdose, which can be fatal. The FDA classifies these medications as narcotic analgesics, so they have 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 hcl 50 mg/for coughing spasms?
9 Replies RSS
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. ## I've...

tramadol 319 manufacturer country

Tramadol 319 50 mg manufactured in what country? ## Hello, John! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and, while they don't list what country it is manufactured in, I can, however, assure you that in order to be available here in the U.S. it must meet the same safety and efficacy standards required by the FDA, as all other prescription medications. Contrary to popular belief, being manufactured in another country does not lower or change the standards they must meet to be FDA approved and made available in U.S. pharmacies. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

tramadol green and yellow capsule no markings
1 Reply RSS
Found green and yellow capsules with no markings on them in my teenagers room. Been surfing online and this page showed up with the same description. What is it? How can I be certian? , and most importantly how should I discard it. ## @UnknownGhost, In my opinion the best way to know for certain what's inside it is to have its contents analyzed by a lab and/or drug panel. The fact that it has no markings is what concerns me, because it could literally be anything. Were you given any clues as to why it might be tramadol? I didn't happen to see the other page here on this topic that you may have been referring to... And I know teens can be difficult to work with (we've all been that way at one point), but hopefully a heartfelt and non-judgemental parent/son talk will help get ...

tramadol for methadone withdrawal
3 Replies RSS
Ive been battling the monster methadone for about 3 years now and I'm sick of it. I tapered down to 20mg a day and ran out. After trying elimodrol and withdrawal ease supplements and feeling OK for the first 2 days, I thought cool I will be OK. Hell no, day three my body told me that stuff ain't doing anything. I had a bottle of tramadol so I took about 250 mg and after 30 min I noticed I was sitting still and not wanting to jump out of my skin. WOW. So now I've been doing the same for 4 days and still alright. Is it too good to be true? Am I just trading one for the other or can it really help? I am sole provider of my wife and two young kids, so missing alot of work to go detox is out of the question. And cold turkey I can't handle right now. Anyone been here before?, ...

11 Replies RSS
I am a recovering Tramadol addict of 8 yrs. Last 3 I was taking 20-25 a day. Off internet or by phone. Had a source prob in India. Would use pre-loadable credit card called PayPower. Mailed in 2-3 days via USPS. Well in May 2014 I got sick with Adnovirus fr son an somehow that messed with Tramadol. Started having palpitations an skipped heart beat. Very scary. Went to ER. Very humiliating to say you are an addict but my own fault. See Tramadol is VERY addictive. For SOME!! It has antidepressant/anti-anxiety properties in it also. Thats why I liked it so. I was first prescribed it by orthopedic dr for tibial stress fracture. Also fibromyalgia an herniated disc in lumbar. Also had lost a child an it seemed to make me happier. Going back to ER. Dr did tons of bloodwork even on heart. Could...

Tramadol HCL Safety And Potency Past Expiration Date
43 Replies RSS
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...
