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 different(not sure what but something). I have lived 8yrs on this medicine and if i am to all of a sudden have to stop taking it i am pretty certain i am going to lose everything. My career will b gone cause i wont b able to function well for many weeks and my family will suffer due to my inabiltie to function effectively.....etc....... i am honestly scared to death and am hopeing to find a safe way to continue getting tramadol. As i stated earlier i have no insurance nor the funds to start seeing doctors not to mention the docs only seem to prescribe narcotic type painkillers and i am not willing to take them due to the side affects and the dangers they pose for me at my work.(operate heavy equipment, machinery etc....i install commercial gas,water and fiberoptic lines)tramadols effects dont cause me to be "high"so to speak.

There's actually another thread on here that someone else started regarding the same situation... but what I don't understand is how Tramadol's new classification might inhibit legitimate pain patients from obtaining or filling their scripts like any other drug?

Tramadol isn't as controlled as other potentially dangerous medications like Oxycodone/Fentanyl and should be fairly easy to obtain in comparison. From what I understand, Tramadol is non-narcotic, and is also said to trigger a response from the same part of the brain as antidepressents. This may be something to talk with your doctor about if for some odd reason you do need to find a replacement to ease withdrawal symptoms. But as I was saying, I don't see how a schedule 4 drug would be any more difficult to obtain legitimately than it already was. If someone can enlighten me on why that might not be the case, I'm open to listening.

What does your doctor have to say about it? I'm sure if you've been prescribed it for nearly 8 years by the same Dr. they wouldn't just cut you lose without any prior warning. If this truly is a major concern however, I'd really stay on top of contacting the Dr. about any possible upcoming changes to your current regimen. That way you can at least be somewhat prepared.

I can't believe this is now considered a narcotic. I take 180 a month and have 2 **refills left and pharmacists says they will not accept that as I need to get a new prescription after this one is out. Why would I chose tramadol as a narcotic pain med. If I want a narcotic I will get vicodin or percocet for God SAKES.! Tramadol has helped my pain for 9 years but I am not going to start this crap with doctors not wanting to prescribe and saying it's narcotic. Anyone who used narcotics before like myself clearly can tell it is a synthetic therefore doesn't make you high ...unless your crazy enough to take 10+ at a time .which I never would. Ughhh I am just severely aggravated about this cause I ALREADY know there's problems up ahead. For all of us who take tramadol the right way or wrong way ,whatever the case..there is problems up ahead !!!

CO Susie Says:

My husband takes Gabapentin 100mg. He has type 2 diabetes and he uses it to help with nerve ending damage due to diabetes. I believe it is also used for an anti depressant. Don't know that he's really seen any benefits nor negative with these.

CO Susie Says:

I have fibromyalgia along with other health problems. I'm always looking for new alternatives to help with my pain management program. Momof2glorious girls mentioned that tramadol helps with fibromyalgia and gives energy.
Fatigue is only second to the pain problems I have. Would love something that helps with fatigue.
Have you tried the gabapentin yet? My husband has never mentioned that the gabapentin helps him with fatigue or with his nerve endings. Very interested in what you find with this drug. How many milligrams a day are you prescribed? He takes 300mg daily.

Kathk Says:

Another reason any decent DR should help is the withdrawal you will suffer if you go off cold turkey. It is actually the same physical problems people taking antidepressants and then suddenly stop suffer with. The horrible "brain zapping" is the worst. It's not safe for you to take it that long and then go cold turkey. If you have any now, you do need to try to wean yourself down just in case. But I hope and pray you will be able to find a kind DR who will help.

I think he was talking about "ordering it online" - because he has no health ins and cannot afford to go to the doctor.

Some sites simply stopped filling orders if it was at all close to 8/18. I am still trying to cut down, but symptoms make it very difficult. Gabapentin is being offered and there is some belief it helps with withdrawal
