I have pain issues since I had surgery where I ended up with chronic pain. My Dr. Says she thinks it comes from adhesions and scar tissue and does not me to have any more surgery it was reccomeded that I go to a pain clinic which I do. They have given me prescriptions of one oxycodone 5-325 every morning and 50 mg tramadol four times a day as needed. How addictive are these?also if a person does have withdrawal ,what actually happens that you have to deal with?I don't know much about the different pain meds. I was taking zolipin as a sleeping aid and I heard about melatonin instead so I tried that and it really does well. I no longer take the zolipin every night as most nights the melatonin does fine. Thanks

Hello, Becky! How are you?

Both Tramadol and Oxycodone are classified as opioids, so they can both be habit forming, the Oxycodone more than the Tramadol. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation.

However, as long as your taking them as prescribed and not abusing them, you'll likely not have any big issues. Tapering off of them slowly, under your doctor's supervision, if you ever have to stop taking them, will help prevent withdrawal symptoms.

If you do have withdrawal symptoms, if may include nausea, dizziness, rebound pain, fever and chills.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Can I take Tramadol when I run out of Oxycodone, in 5 days to be exact. Is it safe to do this? I'm leary about taking something that will damage my health..or worse. I'm a Cancer survivor and had surgery several times..the worse was when they pried my ribs apart and I've been in chronic pain daily. Help.

Oxycodone is VERY addictive! I don't know anything about Tramadol though. I have been on high does of oxycotin and oxycodone. My doctor weaned me down very slowly so I didn't have withdrawal but he weaned me down too far and I was in constant pain.( And by the way I did go through withdrawal twice) I am a Chronic Pain Patient. Because of this oxy epidemic, they want the doctors to get ALL patients off of any oxy's. Well with my situation, NO doctors will even see me when they find out that I'm still on a small amount of oxy's. My doctor is an hour and a half from and I was looking for a closer doctor. That's been four years now!

I just want you to know, that Subutex saved my life! I started out on Suboxone after I had been addicted to pain pills for 4 years! You have to find a doctor that specializes prescribing this medicine. Don't believe people when they say your trading one drug for another. This medicine makes you feel normal and makes it to where you don't have the temptations to go back to taking pain pills. It also helps with pain.

Please always check with your doctor or your pharmacist. They will give you great advice and these forums and chat rooms are also a wonderful place to get advice as well. These people know things that a lot of pharmacies and doctors will not tell you. I hope things are looking better for all of you!

Re: Elw (# 7)

Please, if you can stay away from Tramadol, do it. It’s a very deceptive drug. I was prescribed 2 50mgs four times a day. However when I wanted to stop taking it, I had severe withdrawals. If you don’t have to take it, don’t. It took me almost a year to get off it. It used to be prescribed as an alternative to other pain meds such as Oxy, Morphine, ext. What they didn’t know at that time was the extreme withdrawals it can have. There are far better meds out there that can help besides Tramadol.
