Shortage Of Tramadol

Roy Says:

It is a precarious time for anybody who has been obtaining Tramadol over the internet. I've already read some of the other threads on here where a number of patients are suffering because they are unable to obtain a refill on their prescriptions. If you are unable to get your prescription filled then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with your doctor to taper down since the last thing which you want is to go through any major withdrawals! At the same time I DO NOT RECOMMEND switching to a narcotic pain killer such as Oxycodone since you will find the physiological dependence can be WORSE than Tramadol.

Can anyone speculate the reasons with me? I suspect that many of the illegal suppliers are being stopped and as a knee jerk reaction I speculate that perhaps the DEA / FDA have started imposing production limits on the manufacturers until things get under control. One example is a major prescription drug bust which took place at the end of November 2012 in Lehigh Valley PA.

"Agents seized evidence during a raid of the Hellertown Pharmacy in Northampton County.

Investigators say two pharmacists made $13 million dollars in exchange for pain-killers sold over the internet to people without prescriptions.

The suspects are spread across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and three other states." [1]

Anyways I can't say that I support anyone who is looking to find other "sources" online since that will only perpetuate this problem. I am sorry to everyone who is suffering here but sooner or later it is best to take a safer route which will have more long term benefits. You are all in my thoughts!

It's not just the drug bust that has resulted in the shortage of Tramadol - also the DEA is set to rule on February 27th whether to classify Tramadol as a controlled substance. Subsequently this is why pharmacy wholesalers are experiencing a shortage in their Tramadol supplies and are not able to fill orders as before.

Roy, thanks for all the info. Do you have personal experience with this nasty AND helpful medication ? I'm torn between wanting off and accepting that it helps me more than neurontin and lyrica. I've been thinking about going to a pain specialist to see about suboxone ?, but that seems like it could be like a whole other set of problems. .. any insights? thanks

Hi Marie, sorry for taking awhile to get back to you. Someone close to me has kind of been in a panic because they developed a Tramadol dependence. Of course, only realizing that they had such dependence one the online sources started to dry up. So they showed me this site and what people were talking about and how they were exchanging tips on where to find it. I felt compelled to interject for a couple of posts because I guess you can say I have my own opinions about all this. Are you personally having problems refilling your script? If you are on a pain management program with your doctor and it is working well for you then I wouldn't consider that an issue. Isn't suboxone expensive anyways? But if you're dealing with the many issues which can come from the use of this stuff then have you thought of weaning down very gradually? Anyways, sorry i can't give you more concrete advice. I hope you aren't in the same boat as my the person I know who was getting the drug through let's say "illegitimate" means and now is not a happy camper. I wish you well. Let me know how it's going!

Steve actually just goes through the same old online pharmacies sources anyway, so he won't usually ship to no-ship states. He MIGHT get an order shipped out faster but not always. It's pretty much the same going through an online pharm in my experience because they come from the same place and he goes through the same process. Hes basically just a middleman. Now rich actually does ship to no ship states I believe.

I heard that a few of the contacts being discussed could be part of the same operation? Is that why sometimes all of the sources seem to be unavailable at once?

Ive been reading these posts for awhile.I was getting soma at one time ,thenit became classified as a controlled substance,so the menu shows soma or generic carisoprodol as out of stock. I use to get tramadol as well,but thank God I was able to get insurance soI'm no longer dependent on this source,however this was my only source for awhile I thing it was medph. I just got an emailfrom airmailpharmacy1. shipping is 14-21 days something likethat.I'mnottryingtobreak the law don't want to but also don't want any1 to get ripped off. Just a suggestion that benefits me in no financial waybut understanding was once in this position

I get Tramadol prescription filled from Mexico 100mg tablets. Been doing it for years. Even if you can get Tramadol in the US the prices are a ripoff.
