Tramadol: Frequently Asked Questions

Christina Lasich, MD Health Pro April 11, 2011
  • For some reason, Tramadol is an overlooked, misunderstood drug. Even some doctors are confused about some facts that seem to be little known.  Most know that tramadol is used to treat pain and comes in both short acting and time released formulas. Various brand name drugs contain tramadol includ...

    I have had no negative side effects from Tamadol and even though I have had reasonably good results with it, I can't use it within 48 hours of going on watch. I work two weeks on and two weeks off. I can't take NSAIDS because I had cervical fusion recently. Tylenol does NOTHING for my nerve / shoulder pain.

Methocarbamol works too but I am not allowed to take that at work either.  What other pain relievers might  be allowed for someone in the transportation industry and subject to drug testing?

      I have taken tramadol off and on for 10 yrs. It lasted longer & really worked fairly well for 24/7 pain I had with Bladder like cancer disease.

      I have taken tramadol off and on for 10 yrs. It lasted longer & really worked fairly well for 24/7 pain I had with Bladder like cancer disease. Vicodin just didn't last long enough and next dose too far away. Trouble is like you will read if you just go on internet and type tramadol withdrawal. It's HELL. 5 days of it. No matter how you try to wean off it. You feel like you were plugged into a light socket, especially at night. None of my doctors knew why I would have horrific side affects after 3 days on any anti=depressant, and low and behold, in 2008 or so they finally came out with DO NOT take any antidepressants. Effexor was one of the anti depressants I ended up trying to take after I weaned myself and it gave me brain shivers for 7 months, even on the lowest dose cut in 1/3 each day. And tramadol chemistry is exactly like effexor. Problem is especially now, if you have severe pain, what do you take, the gov't has decided too many people addicted to vicodin, so everyone cracking down on it, and heroin is good alternative, but who wants to be shooting up. Where do people go who cannot have a life without pain? Doctors don't get it, most of them aren't old enough or been in situations where they understand pain, they think we can get over it. Pain management specialist are the best to help, but they are not available in all areas either & the one here doesn't believe in pharmacy solutions, only $15,000. nerve blocks that "may work until the nerve grows back" and then they aren't even sure they are getting the right spot... hit and miss. When is health care going to be about the patients and not the doctors and pharmaceutical companies.

    Do you think that tramdol is good for RSD ? also is it better then Exlago? Also I take both , do you think I can manage with taking Tradmol 3 times a day and still get enough relief without the Exlago

    Thanks

    I've been addicted to tramadol and am finally free of this evil drug. The withdrawals are far worse than normal opiates and I've had 2 grand mal seizures, that I know of. I know of the 2 because I was driving and woke up in an ambulance. Wikipedia has really good research info on tramadol. It's pretty scary that it's not known exactly how it works on the brain, except that it's morphine-like, and it's an uncontrolled substance that I could get overnighted to my front door, 180 50mg every 2 weeks. It does act as the antidepressant, Effexor, and unfortunately for me, I'm also taking Effexor, which increases the chances of grand mal seizures. Was not ever told that by my doctor and it's bewildering how many MDs don't know that or much about this drug. Also, according to Wikipedia, the longer you take tramadol, the greater the chance of seizures, across the board. The only bonus was I never got sick until I went to rehab to kick. Turns out tramadol boosts the immune system! Go figure. My choices are, never get sick? Or kill myself. I got bronchitis back to back in my first month of rehab and that sucked but I no longer want to kill myself.

I'll itch on my face, scratch it, then it will itch on my legs, scratch it, then it moves to my arms scratch there and its like soon as i get relief in the spot im scratching it moves. Is it possible that I didn't have a reaction to the med til the third dose? Should I stop taking it til I call my doctor monday?

I had a very mild itchy nose the first time I took tramadol, another reason I agree with this site's evalauation that it is indeed an opiod.

      Be careful with it. I took Vicodin for 6 months for neck pain and, to be honest, got hooked.  The withdrawals weren't pleasant but only lasted 2-3 days - like having a mild flu.  I substitued Tramadol when the pain returned the next year (old injuries from two bicycle crashes along with a broken scapula) I never exceeded 150 mg a day, but based on my previous Vicodin experience, decided to lay off after two months.  The withdrawal symptoms were strange - leg twitching at night, pain in my feet I'd never had before, along with, again, mild flu-like symptoms.  It lasted much longer than the V withdrawal, however, an effect I attribute to the seritonin reuptake inhibitor effects of this drug.  I've read similar stories happening to people taking Effexor, an anti-depressive.

    Hi Dr. Lasich,

     

    I am currently being treated for major depression, anxiety, hypothyroidism, high cholesterol, TMJ, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heriniated discs at L5/L3/L4 with sciatica and foot numbness. Specifically, I am taking the following medications from my psychiatrist for depression/anxiety/insomnia - Viibryd (been on for approx. 5 months, Trazodone (been on for approx. 3 months), Klonopin (as needed) and Buspar (in week 3). I have been suffering from back pain and leg weakness since the original occurence approx. 4 years ago and have tried every medical approach available - right now I see a chiropractor but still have "bad days". Likewise, this past week, I spoke to my General Internal Medicine Doctor, and he prescribed Tramadol at 1-2, 50 mg. tablets 4x a day - as needed.

     

    I am curipous as to your input and professional opinion as to this combination of medication, and the hopes of feeling/thinking better and clearer. Also, is this combination safe? Would you recommend this combination for both pain and mood? When the pain comes back, I truly become very weepy. I am very saddened as to the impact my herniated disc issue has had on my life and the overall effect it has had on my mood and view of life. Would you recommend that I take the Tramadol regularly, despite having pain or not, to aid in the management of my pain/mood and obsessive worry about things in my life - in other words, to aid in my life perspective also?

     

    Thank you for your consideration and helpfulness.

     

    P.S. I have been on other narcotics (Oxycondone) for 3 years which slowly became ineffective and my doctor only increased the dosage. I was later told by my surgeon, to get off of all the narcotics and was then hospitalized for withdrawal. My personal preference is not to be on "any" meds but I am having a very difficult time in my mood and sadness. I feel like I have lost my mental abilities given my overall circumstances - health and general life.

     

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated !

    I suffer from moderate to severe cervical spine nerve pain from a car accident in '07, I am a dancer and extremely active despite of this but the pain is considerable whether I am active or not. For 2 years I was on hydrocodone 500mg, this worked well for my pain and I took it sparingly always mindful of the addictive qualities. I came off the Hydrocodone for a year trying to get pregnant and suffered greatly with the pain. 4 months ago I moved and got a new doctor who would not prescribe the Hydrocodone without really knowing me, and so prescribed Tramadol. For the first 2-3 months I thought I had found a wonder drug, pain was gone when I took it, I was told it was non opiate. Recently I have been having insomnia, restlessness in my legs at night (a tingling, nerve twitching feeling running up and down my legs) accompanied by an extreme feeling of unease and nervousness, not in my head but in my body. These feelings are horrible. I've noticed them when I do not take the pills for a day or two, so are these withdrawal symptoms? I never had any trouble with the Hydrocodone whether I took it everyday or inconsistently. Anyone have any advice or similar experiences? The Tramadol pain relief is amazing but these other symptoms are so bad I am reluctant to take it.

      I've been taking Tramadols for 4 years. I know what you're saying about hyperactivity; I sometimes call Tramadol my "work drug". I am twice as productive with my job, more interested, efficient, etc. I suffer from depression, and I know it helps me there. I take no anti-depressants, none have ever made me feel as pleasant as tramadols. I am scared to death to tell my doctor half the reason I take this is for depression, I am scared he will take it away. My legit reason is for my neck pain which has been there since my roll over accident in 2005. I have a pinched nerve which runs down my left arm.

      .

      I take days off from the trams. I'm usually 2 or 3 on and 1 off. I find the effects are diminished on the third day in a row. If I feel the need to do a third day in a row, I increase my dose. My normal dose is 200 mg when I wake up. Then I am done for the day. 2 days off and I begin to feel the withdrawal symptoms...restless legs, aggitation, anxiety...I DON'T take trams in the P.M. because it gives me insomnia, accompanied by BAD night sewats. This is where the THC comes into my day.

       

      So Tramadol....It helps, my pain is handled, I'm happier, My work is good....In Reality I'm completely addicted...I'm under the recomended daily dose, so I don't think I'm killing myself. But it is a part of my desired reality, I have no intentions of stopping anytime soon. I hate the withdrawals anyway.

      At least you are being honest with yourself and realize that you are flirting with addiction. Addicts often like the energy boost from their drug of choice. Sometimes that boost is related to the fact that fatigue is very common as the drug wears off. Sometimes that boost is related to the powerful reward center in your brain that likes the new infusion of a drug/reward be it sugar, exercise or "trams".

       

      Eventually it is hard to stay ahead of the withdrawals and tolerance. That's when people fall off the hamster wheel and start to see a decline in productivity and function.

    I know for a fact that the deliberate (or sometimes accidental) misuse of Tramadol can cause seizures. All doctors know this and should tell patients this when prescribing this medication.

      Thank you for reminding us that taking too much Tramadol can lead to serious reactions like seizures, serotonin syndrome, and respiratory depression. The maximum daily dose of Tramadol should not exceed 300mg/day and even less if taking other medications like the anti-depressants already mentioned. More is not better.

Two weeks ago I really hurt the bottom of my foot and began taking it twice a day but wake during the night in pain and take 1 g. of Tylenol, without much effect. Today I am thinking about three times a day until I no longer have to wear this "boot" given by a doctor a couple of days ago and the pain is healed either by itself or a cortisone shot he mentioned for three weeks from now.

      I have to say that when I read the sheet that came with the Rx regarding, among other things, drug interactions, I was pretty terrified. I had the medication for two years before I got the courage, or the pain became just so intolerable, to take it. It helped so much that when I saw my regular doctor six weeks ago I got a new Rx.

      Your information has been really helpful and I'm now registering to this site.

      Me too - Lyrica makes me absolutely drunk in a bad sort of way, totally unpleasant, dizzy to the point of fallen, and relieved no symptoms whatsoever. I also had scary memory lapses while taking Lyrica.

       

      Tramadol works fine for my restless legs with no side effects like that. MUCH  better!

I have so much pain I can hardly function without being in tears. When I take the Tramadol it takes a bit to kick in for me, but once it does I can move around and it's gentle on my stomach. It doesn't take the pain away a 100%, but enough to where I can live life and move. (Then once I get moving the better I feel). Fibromyalgia is crippling, painful and just a bad disease to have. Anything to help make things better is a blessing. I'm glad this doesn't make me "loopy" I can function normally.

      Some people cannot tolerate Tramadol due to side effects, although I have not heard of anyone becoming hyperactive on account of taking this medication. This hyperactive may have been an early sign of Serotonin Syndrome which can be caused by tramadol especially when taken with another serotonin re-uptake inhibitor like Celexa, Zoloft, and Cymbalta.

So tramadol seems to be the perfect drug for me -- it takes away my pain, helps with my depression, and quiets my mind at the same time as it gives me more energy and motivation to finish tasks rather than abandoning them.

      He Spirilled strieght down into the deepest depths of DEPRESSION (Hell). Reclused to his bed, stopped speaking or having any social interaction. Then he took an overdose of the 90 tabs of Tramadol and 60 tabs of Zyprexia.

      We are lucky to have him alive today! 6 days in ICU on a Ventilator and in a Coma, 106 temp, CPK's read 73,000 (normal range is 2400) He had Kidney Failure from the sever muscle damage.

      Good advice from a mom who has gone through hell. Doctors, pharmacists and patients need to be very vigilent about medication interactions. The more doctors and medications involved the higher the risk for trouble. The next medication mistake might not be so lucky. Don't let it happen to you. Stay informed and stay alive.

      Yes, many OTC drug have very dangerous side effects when taken in excess. Tramadol is an excellent choice because it does not contain Tylenol and does not cause stomach ulcers. Tramado is also an excellent choice for anyone like you who has FM. Thanks for sharing your experience with Tramadol.
