Plus, current or former injection drug users who inject drugs are at risk of developing Hepatitis C HCV. If you are worried about liver or kidney damage as the result of taking too much tramadol, you can request an HCV screen, as well as liver and kidney screens from your doctor. You'll have to report the high dosage, however. Taking one 50mg of Tramadol generic a day at bed time is it adctive Ive been taking it for almost a yr.
It's possible that you may have developed a physical dependence on tramadol, but this is different than addiction. Addiction is characterised by drug cravings after you stop taking tramadol. If you have no psychological symptoms of addiction, your body may have adapted to tramadol and you will go through withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking tramadol or significantly reduce dosage What does your prescribing doctor say about daily use?
I took two 50mg earlier like around 1pm and then one after 4 hours and then i took another one. I wasn't sure if I did took the last one but I ended taking another one. I wanted to know if I'll be okay So, in other words, you took a potential double-dose of tramadol at the end of the day? Did you experience any symptoms of overdose? Any slowed breathing or heart rate? Did you try to call a 24 hour pharmacist or your prescribing doctor?
Before heading to the ER, check in with a medical professional by phone and see if you need urgent care, or not. I ran out of vicodin. I do have some tramadol. I took the vicodin in the morning. Is it safe to take tramodol in the afternoon? I am clean now, but for about one whole year or perhaps a year and a half I was taking 50mg tramadol instant release tablets and other than a wicked withdrawal period upon cessation. Thanks for sharing more about your experiences with tramadol.
Withdrawal must have been difficult! If you suspect that you may have damaged your kidneys or liver, by all means, request some blood tests. Diagnostics can really provide you with peace of mind And they say I am fit for work, I feel crap on these meds after a serious head injury a few years ago. It may be a combination of the head trauma and the medications which make you feel groggy and unfit for work. But work may be possible.
Is there any vocation which appeals to you in which decision-making is not a major consideration? Any tasks that are attractive to you? Hi, My boyfriend was prescribed the 50mg Ultram. He recently was put on opana instead because he was taking up to 8 Ultram a day. He didn't feel as if the opana was working so he ended up taking some Ultram he had left because he was in so much pain. He took 18 ultrams within 2 days. The next day he didn't take anything, but now today he has a throbbing headache and has been puking all day and had to call off work.
He thinks it was just a migrane, but I'm wondering if it could have something to do with all the ultram he took within the 2 day period? Maybe he's in withdrawal? For how long was he taking tramadol consecutively? Physical dependence can develop within a few weeks of regular dosing.. Hope he's feeling better soon! I received a kidney transplant in May of This nurse wasn't sure if I could swallow the meds so she took the Acetaminophen tablets mg and crushed it, mixed it with water and put it in a 10 ml syringe, then took liquid maalox and also put that in a 10 ml syringe.
For some reason she injected the 2 syringes into a central line I had in my next. You'll have to consult with a physician to learn more about the procedural protocols for injecting drugs, and whether or not this mixture is recommended. In general, IV administration of drugs is called for when a patient may throw up and nurse give you the medicine or other fluid as either: A fast bolus, which means you will get it quickly all at once.
A slow infusion, which means the medicine is given very slowly over a long period of time. Check with the supervising doctor and request medical records to show evidence of this procedure to learn more. Hi I take tramadol once a month for fun. But each time I have a low breathing problem and things like waves coming to my head it is just 2 hours after taking and each 20 minutes for seconds occured and also when i take it I'll be under stress!!!!!
Is this normal symptom of tramadol or not? Because i scare from the seizure!!!! I'd suggest that you report these symptoms to your prescribing doctor and pharmacist. Tramadol works differently than other opioids, and has some qualities of benzodiazepines. Perhaps a straight opioid like hydrocodone or oxycodone may work better for you. What worries me are the hallucinations, a possible side effect of tramadol. Ask your doctors and pharmacists for their opinion. You might be able to transfer from tramadol to another opioid medication.
Hi, I have severe pain in my arm and take paracetamol and diclofenac today or yesterday I can take mg? Which would be the safest pain relief-Tramadol or Ultracets? Hi i have been taking tramadol hcl 50mg. I currently take 1 x a day and now since its been a couple of years it doesn't seem to be working as much now. My question is could I take 2 of the 50mg at once, but not have that happen again or should i switch to a mg. You'll need to consult with your prescribing physician before increasing doses of tramadol.
It's possible that your tolerance for tramadol has increased. But never take more tramadol before seeking medical advice. Ultracet contains tramadol and acetaminophen. The safest option for you would depend on whether you'd like to take the additional acetaminpohen for added analgesic effect, or do well with just generic tramadol.
Consult your pharmacist for more information. I've been taking 2 50mg tablets of tramadol per day for about 4 months. I take 2 tablets mid day, once per day. I'm finding that about the time I'm to take them I am beginning to feel very tired. Then after I take them, after 30 minutes or so I guess, I start to feel fine again. I'm wondering if I am becoming physically dependent upon them. I read some comments on line about withdrawl effects that sound really awful, expecially the severe anxiety that these people talk about.
I talked to my Dr and she says tramadol is not addicting expect in rare occasions. How do I stop without having withdrawl sysmptom? Once your body is dependent on tramadol, you necessarily pass through the period of withdrawal when you stop taking it. However, you can minimize the severity of symptoms by slowly tapering down doses of tramadol over time before finally eliminating it from the body. Hi, i have been prescibed tramadol for major back pain, i have been taking this for around a month and have found it to be great help, but now this all of a sudden it has completely stopped working, do i have to stop taking this for a certain time before these will work again?
It sounds like you are describing the effects of tolerance - the need for higher doses of a pain med in order to experience initial therapeutic effects. While it may work in the short term to reduce dosage in order to experience effect, you can trigger withdrawal symptoms. I'd suggest that you take the issue to your prescribing doctor and seek medical counsel.
I've been taking 50mg at night for 3 weeks due to a right knee reduction Internal fixation. For how long can I keep taking it? Hello, thanks for the great info but I need to make an important correction to one thing the moderator said. While it is true that tramadol works differently than other opioids, its other qualities are in fact similar to an SSRI medication, not a benzodiazipine. Benzos treat anxiety and convulsions and raise the seizure threshold protecting you against them, while tramadol in fact does the opposite, it lowers the seizure threshold and can cause convulsions and seizures.
Hi Is rapid heart rate after taking tramadol sign of an allergy? It takes about 1 hour and then i will be ok. I use tramadol for my migraine sometimes and it is very good for the headache. But i scare from the increasing heart rate after taking until the pill is going to work. Talk with your prescribing doctor about these symptoms. It's possible that tramadol is not a good match for you to treat headaches. I have FM and i am in so much pain the figtues bad I cant sleep and the flare up are crazy my doctor perscibe this i been on them 8 months i strat out one three a day this dont work so now i take two three a day and even tho it doesnt help they lately perscribe voltern to take also i am scared i weigh lbs but my body are in so much pain and even worst whe my menstrual cycle what is too much am i seizure?
What about Tramadol for bipolar. I bought this OTC in Bangkok for neck pain following a midface and necklift that left me with awful pulling strangling feeling that I still have 3 years later. While it did very little to aleviate my pain I did notice that it helped significantly with my mood. Suffering for years with severe depression that did not respond to anti depressants for my bipolar.
I cannot get a Dr. Yet I can get all the Ativan I want which seems ridiculous. What do you know about Tramadol for bipolar and it use? I take mg. Need to miss a day here and there. It is cheap cheap cheap. I've found no reference of tramadol used medically to treat bipolar disorder. I have been taking Tramadol ER mg prn chronic pain and Fibromyalgia for some time. The strength seems to have lost it's effectiveness I still hurt alot.
Should I call my Pain Management doctor and let him know? Also, how long after you take the ER does it really start working? Yes, call your prescribing doctor and describe the effects. It's actually an expected side effect called tolerance. You can learn more about onset of tramadol and its effects here: I can't beleived they prescribed this for her shoulder when she is already on an antidepressant and muscle relaxer I'm told it is fatal when your taking this much doses altogether,isn't it illegal to prescribe tremadol to someone on an antidepressant.?
I want to thank you so much for your time and efforts in answering my questions about Tramadol mg ER. Other opioids include hydrocodone or oxycodone Check into all possible side effects before moving to a stronger pain killer. I have CKD which seems to be improving. I had to give up allopurinol, hctz motrin, and lisinopril. Is it alright to take 1 or 2 tramadol a day? I have very severe arthiritis. Do you have a prescription for tramadol?
Which is stronger tramadol 50mg or Ultracet ? I take Tramadol 25mg one tab three to four times a week for about 4 years now. I take it for neck and back pain when motrin does not relieve it. I just find that is works quickly and effectively when motrin does not. My question is, have I been using it for too long? And if I stop should I taper? Sometimes I have not had to take it for a week at a time here and there and I have been fine.
Am I at risk for withdrawal symptoms if I never take it again? I have been taking I have been taking 25 a day for several years. I have a question. I just started tramadol a few days ago and 2 50mg made me so sick and I felt awful. I cut the dose in half and take 25mg and I really get no relief for my rupture disk. Can someone help me? I had taken Ultracets and they worked great but, the tylenol level made some changes in my liver levels and I do not drink.
Yesterday I got mg tramadol tablets. Once I got home. After the anxiety attack, ten hours, and 5mg Diazapam, I'm back in pain but dare not take another, would it be safe to take mg paracetamol or ibruprofen with codine in it? I just dont want to make myself feel even worse. Oh I dont know if this makes a difference but they were also slow release, and I made a typo, they are mg tablets, not mg. Codeine and tramadol are structurally and chemically different types of opioids.
I'd suggest that you consult with a pharmacist for advice and suggestions on dosing, especially given the extreme anxiety tramadol seems to have provoked. I'm 16 and took 6 tramadol 50mg at 7pm last night am I ok? I'm taking Tramadol mg SR twice a day,I took mg last night at 9pm,then another mg this morning at 7: Then realized I had taken the dose an hour and half early.. Hi Raynor - You should be be OK with an earlier than normal dose, but monitor yourself for symptoms of slower breathing, or heart rate and call the Poison Control Center should you become nervous or want clarification.
I have been taking tramadol for a few years now. In a 24 hour period I might take mg 3 times a day. Is that too much?? We are not qualified to provide medical advice but, instead, refer you to the appropriate medical professional. If you suffer from a nervous or anxiety issue, tell your Dr. I take 2xmg in the morning and 2xmg at night ,I have been taking the tablets for yrs are they safe?
I've been taking Tramadol for a couple of weeks but I can't swallow tablets and they taste very bitter. To get round this I've been snorting mg instant release tablets and also inserting mg up my anus 3 times a day. Although it's really helped with my depression I've found I've been extremely constipated. Do you think this has anything to do with anally inserting the tablets?
Would you care to eloborate as to why you would take this drug in this way? I've been addicted to painkillers since I was at school I started off with a couple of Solpadol. Then I began taking a couple more,and more and after about a year or so I would take a strip of 10 at a time. But after around a couple of years I found I was still getting a buzz but I was having to take about 15 solpadol's at a time and even then it would only last for a couple of hours.
So I started taking Tramadol the first time I took 4 30mg capsules and I got a subtle buzz that lasted for a few hours,After a couple of months though I was having to take more to get the same feeling until just like with the Solpadol's I was taking a strip of 10 30mg capsules at a time. That was about 4 years ago though and up until 5 days ago I was getting through around 60 30mg capsules of Tramadol a day.
I've stopped completely now though but I can't stop sweating,I feel utterly awful and the last 3 nights I've practically cried myself to sleep,So I was actually coming online to order some more but I saw this site and I know it'll be terrible but I'll try to hold out for a bit longer. I don't expect or want any sympathy I'm a 25 year old guy who hasn't worked a day in his life were well off so I've never needed the money everything should be good but since I've stopped taking the painkillers I'm thinking what have I been doing?
I've been left behind all my friends have moved on and I'm still at home and not really caring because I was so heavily medicated but with no painkillers I'm having to face reality and it's extremely depressing. Sorry this is too long it was longer but I deleted some stuff I had written about my little sisters being spoiled brats and quite a lot of other stuff Including a couple of funny dreams to make it shorter sorry anyway I talk way too much.
It sounds like you're going through cold turkey withdrawal. It takes longer to get off, but tapering does make symptoms less severe. Do you have support where you are for psychological cravings or physical dependence symptoms? I forgot that I had take my tramadol at I only take 50 mgs every four hours, been taken it for over a year and I have never messed up like this before. You've probably developed opioid tolerance after regular dosing for a year, or more and the extra dose may not affect you greatly.
However, if you notice symptoms such as slowed breathing or heart rate, call the Poison Control Center or the emergency services ASAP. I have taken tramadol 50mgs tablets for over eight years , the dosage is 1 tablet every 6 hours as needed, Nothing has ever changed in that eight years even though I ask, still I am guilty of self medicating to 4, 50mg tablets, mg the only way I have ever felt a physical change in pain.
I guess my question is, after reading all of this, has my medication treat for pain might have been mismanaged. I guess I feel like, too little for too long. My mum has been put on tramadol she is 79 and weighs six stone and is seeing things also unsteady on her legs is this to much, and is in hospital for consterpation? I have permanently torn rotator cuff tendons in both arms, plus tendon tears in my biceps and elbows, again in both arms. As a result I have chronic pain and have been taking Tramadol for 10 years now and have asked my surgeon and Dr.
Presently I take mg twice a day along with Temazepam to help me sleep some nights. Can you advise what the long-term effects of Tramadol use are, apart from the usually ones? I have rls which makes it very difficult for me to fall asleep at night. I have been taking 10 drops of tramadex the last few night which helps me very much. Is it ok to take tramadex.
I don't need it during the day. I have been taking Tramadol for about nine months for chronic back pain. On bad days I am to take one to two tablets 50 mg every 4 to 6 hours. However I have found that If I skip a day or two I tend to get diarrhea,and feel a bit edgy. I am concerned that these may be withdrawel symptoms. My maim question; is 75 mg daly,over a long period of time,a risky dose,and if so should I wean myself from them or simply stop?
Just caring bout my friend really shes in her early 30s with 2 kids, got family their just incase tonight. She pulled her back out by bending down and this sciatica kicked in? She said she can have 1 life tramadol in the 24 hour period what does this mean to me? She had 6 or 7 since 9 am this morning and is on about taking 1 more whats the risk? And if she took it what could happen as she hasn't been knock out by the drug yet tonight?
She has taken 8 before and been absolutely fine? She wont take 10 in a day as shes got 2 kids to think bout. Please help as this is all new to me thanks. I am prescribed tramadol MR for relief from chronic pain. I started off with 50mg immediate release qid about 10 years ago, but switched to the MR formulation a few years ago. My current dose is mg tramadol MR bid. This morning, I forgot to take my dose.
By about 6PM I was feeling so rubbish I looked at my pill minder to take my second dose and discovered that I had not taken my first, hence the level of pain I was in. So, I took my first dose about 6: My question is, how long to I have to wait before I can take another dose? Can I take the other mg MR before bed about 5- 6 hours between doses or do I have to wait until the morning?
Hope someone can answer me soon. Is mg of Tramadol a safe dose for an 84 year old that weighs pounds and the person does not take any pain meds. After this dosage she had nausea and vomiting. Could that be a result of the Tramadol? I've been on tramadol for about years. At first it wasn't much at all but now I take mg to mg a day. I know I'm addicted to them, I've tried to stop but I can't.
I get really anxious and cold sweats etc. What should I do? How far apart should a person who has MS, that takes vyvanse for fatigue, wait before taking their tramadol? But I don't thnk that's enough cause I still b n pain what should I Do. What is a safe amount of time between a does of tramadol and Vicodin? I am currently taking 1- 50mg of tramadol a day for very bad back pain.
Can this become addictive. Is 3 tramadol at a time every 6 hours safe? Any less than 3 doesnt help me. Hi, what will happen if someone took over 10 pills of tramadol 50mg at once? Your body might be developing tolerance to Tramadol if lower doses that helped you achieve the wanted effect previously, are no longer effective. You can talk to your prescribing doctor or a pharmacist for advise and dosage assessment. Can I take another mg time released tablet after 4 hours for severe pain on a one time basis?
Yes, Tramadol can cause liver damage if used for an extended length of time. It can actually become very addicting as well. Plus, if you drink alcohol, you may damage your liver even more. I am dental surgeon and a long term sufferer of maigrain. I have been taking tramadol IV mg at once, then it increased to mg four times a day for four years, I had at least five seizures but it did not stop me.
I just wanted to know what can be the damage of my kidney and other organs. I just got out of a rehab centre and I have quit taking it, but I just wanted to know what kind of permanent damage I have caused to my body. I took 12 at once of 50mg and feel sick and dizzy will be okay. I met with an accident 8 months ago,due to this my left leg was fractured at tibial head regio along with compartment syndrome and operated as per the procedure.
After this i was advised to take Tremadol mg capsules for 10 days two times a day. My question is if i will take continuously for another months is it safe or not. Iam not noticing any side effects so far only i will get drowsiness after taking capsule. I try to be sensible when taking Tramadol and have been using this medication on and off for about 2 years now at 50mg 3 times a day for back pain, but I make sure I have long breaks so as not to become addicted.
If its for a special occasion when I need to really dull the pain is it safe to take mg twice a day? Hi i was just wondering if anyone knows if i could be hurting my kidneys or liver? I think tramadol 50mg is the weakest pain medication the doctor has prescribed me. Im not an addict and im not intentionally overdosing. Is taking mg at one time fatal.
Would it be ok, for my Dr. I currently am prescribed 6 x 50mg per day. I am listed as in "remission" from opiate addiction, from 5 yrs of over mg of oxycodone. I have chronic back pain, and can not get the relief I need from my current prescription, but prefer to never return to the oxycodone world! Anyway, back to my question. Do you think this is something she will go for? I really think it will help to cover my pain, and keep me from returning to OxyWorld.
Thank you so much for your service! I have been prescribed Tramadol for back pain for the past 4 years and was taking mg 5 times a day with little effect. Dr has now prescribed Gabapentin mg daily with view to increasing for pain relief and has advised to continue with Tramadol but changed it to mg slow release twice a day.
I have been showing signs of withdrawal by sweating loads and anxiety, Dr did say I could 'top up' if necessary with tablets I have left of the 50mg immediate release but am unsure how many and is this safe? I had bunion and toe sergery,I. Asked my sergeant to prescribe me tridural for my pain my nephew went to Jamaica was hurt badly they prescribed him these pills he made me try them that's why I asked my sergent about them.
I went to the pharmacy he didn't have the milagrams phoned the doctor the secretary in a hurry to get off the phone said milagrams and the pharmacist mistakenly wrote every 4 hours in. I just want to start taking tramadol now I bought a satchet of mg tabs over the counter. Is it save to take a whole tablet at once? I take up to mg daily and recently tried mg injectable because pharmacy was out of everything but that so I tried it and it worked better with the than if I took the first half hour and pain free chronic pain now I was wondering if a capsule 50mg can be opened and mixed with water to inject and if so will the effect be the same as using the mg?
Reason being is the pharmacy I go to rarely is able to prescribe the tramadol for lack of stock and wondering if I can extend the supply for those times they are unable to fill the prescription. I had no idea and thankfully we did not give her any of the 2 pills they gave her in the er. I even questioned her about them being pills saying she can't take pills and I was told to crush them up and put them in Apple sauce.
Anyways my question is what would that dose have done to my daughter? We have made a complaint and they said the doctor would be reviewed, however I am furious and feel If she could have been severely hurt she should be let go. This is my daughters life.. I would appreciate your response, thank you. The maximum single dose a child can take is mg, which is what they sugested you sould give your daughter. I take one tablet of Tridural mg once daily.
However today I made an error and took two. Should I do anything? Is this safe, all professionals have told me it is safe, but am very very cautious. This would really make my life so much fuller, if could take 2 days a wk, but can manage if 1 day is better. Thank you soo much. How long have you been taking the medication? If it's been a while, your system has probably built tolerance to it, so you should be fine. The maximum dose allowed within 24 hours is mg.
Just to be safe, you can call your doctor. I take instant Tramedo Capsules mg, for severe head pain, as I suffer from disintegration at top of spine, which causes severe head pain. I also wear a stiff foam collar while sleeping to keep my head from moving side to side. Without the collar the pain is horrendous when I wake. Overall the pain is constant, it never leaves me it just intensifies at different times of the day.
Sometimes I wish I had something stronger, but still be able to carry on my normal activities like driving, gardening etc. Have you talked with a doctor about his issue? I'm sure they can do something. I had my wisdom tooth extracted and im taking tramadol mg 4 times a day but i does not really help with the pain.
If i take acetaminophen will it increase the effect? I have severe fibromyalgia my mother in law gave me some 50mg tramadols as my pain has been awful, yesterday I took 3 as an attempt to get rid of the pain so I could get on with things, I ended up being sick all day falling asleep constantly shaking uncontrollably with cold sweats and weak all over, eventually I slept it off feeling very fragile today but okay, I have eaten and generally back to my normal self, but am just wondering if this was an overdose and if there's anything I should do?
I had accidentally taken a double dose of mg tramodol a few months ago. I ended up having a seizer, am I allergic? I wasn't sure if my body would reject it now completely and cause another. Pharmacologic use of tramadol has not been associated with cases of clinically apparent drug-induced liver disease. But since you are using above reasonable doses, it may cause liver damage. People have reported having kidney pains when using tramadol, but unless you had damaged kidneys before you started taking it, it shouldn't cause severe harm.
Hi i took two mg tramadol tablets at 4am this morning and since feel dizzy and have been sick. Have i took too much? My 12 year daughter accidentally took 3 of my 50 mg Tramadol tablets. Do we need to do any thing? Lisa, Call the Poison Control Center on to have your daughter's risk of overdose professionally assessed by a poison exert.
Or drive her to the ER. Since the I have had a paralyzed diaphragm. Is a normal side effect? I'd suggest informing your doctor about this one and any other possible side effects you may be experiencing. Can taking mg cause kidney damage even if it was for 4 to 5 days and then mg for the next 4 or 5 days then back to for 4 to 5 days?
I was doing this due to pain levels. I have stopped taken so much once I learned it can damage kidneys. I think it has been 2 years like this. No one will stop people from seeking suicide, they will always find a solution If I take only one 50mg tablet of tramadol per week for years,is this considered ok,or an addiction? When i wake up i take 5 and so on till i go to sleep and take another 5.
I am taking this dose for almost 3years can someone tell me what the consequences are? I was prescribed 50mg. Tramadol 1 tablet every 6hours. I took two is that to much? You shouldn't have waited all night to get help. If you reacted fast enough, your stomach could have been pumped, but now the drug has been absorbed completely into your system. I'd advise you to seek doctor's help. I have been taking 25mg of Tramadol, once a day at bedtime, for approximately two years.
It isn't for pain but to relieve neuropathy symptoms so I can sleep. I skip one to two nights a week. I called in my refill and just heard from my doctor's office. He is NOT going to refill it. The nurse referenced the fact that it's a narcotic. Are they implying I'm addicted to it? I absolutely do not think I am! I just want to sleep. Lying awake all night with neuropathy symptoms is pure hell and I've been grateful to have something that helped. Dear doc, I have been taking tramadol off and on for a few years now, I get it prescribed for a back injury, although I can't really say that is the reason I take it.
It has more become a sort of bed time ablution, and it really does help me sleep, or if not, at least calm me down, and having been a restless insomniac my whole life, it really helps with pain that way. I never take it during the day, as I don't like being groggy when I'm on my feet, but also - and I see how this sort of contradicts my first reason - I'm a drinker, and have been for almost ten years. I suppose I'm what some would call 'a functional alcoholic', that is if they knew how much I drink, and most don't.
I don't bingedrink, I don't start fights, and I'm sort of the voice of reason to my friends who do. Not many of them know about the seizures, the dt's, the psychosis and the sectioning a couple of years ago. The fear of seizures, since one was very near fatal, is sometimes what makes me have a drink when I really don't want one. Someone suggested to me that tramadol has an effect that pacifies the withdrawal of alcohol.
I can't seem to find whether or not there's any truth to that, since, of course, no one would dare not having told me that anything but supervised detox would be too dangerous - if not for me then for their rep. I am well aware of this, but since I won't be handing myself in anywhere, and I'm really just trying to avoid the seizures, not the inevitable discomfort, that I can handle, I would very much appreciate any old household remedies.
I think this is the sort of place where even the placebo effect would work wonders. I took a mg tram and frgt I took it and took another one stupid I know I'm pretty sure I had a seizure three hours ago am I going to be OK I'm scared. If you have someone at home, tell them to drive you to the hospital. I took one ultram mg extended release this AM and another about 5 hrs later bc I hadn't felt any results from the first yet. Now about 10 hrs after the first pill , I am feeling side effects.
I have some opiate tolerance have been taking percocets for back pain; usually per day , but the Ultram is new. The script said to just take one pill per day I have just had a dental procedure and was give 50 mg tramadol hcl tabs. Will this increase side effects. I have been taking a mg early am but it has little or no effect on my pain. Can I take a 50mg fast release at the same time,. What happens if someone snaps a mg slow release pill in half and takes it?
I've heard that taking the slow release tramadol in crushed form can cause an over dose? But technically you're just getting the mg in one go and the pills come in mg for the instant release so what is the difference? Is taking half of a mg slow release pill actually dangerous? Can tramadol mg given to children below 16 years 6 hourly with morphine sulphate 10 mg as post operative therapy? I have tried cutting it back to 50mg a day because I have to have a tooth extraction.
My dr also had me on Any info would be much appreciated. Hi I have been taking tramadol for close to six months previously I took mg at once and felt like collapsing but drank allot of water I have been taking apo-tramadol mg. I was told that I could take 1 or 2 tablets every 6 hrs by both my doctor and pharmacist and find that it takes away some of the pain but not all of it. How many of these tablets can I take within 24 hrs? I try not to take more than 4 or 6 but, do not know if that is too much??
I am in constant pain with arthritis in my legs but, also have a condition called chondrocalcinosis. Also, I am going for physiotherapy and exercise only when I am not in pain. First time I took it I took mg. Went a week without them then took mg 2 days in a row. The fourth day I took mg but about 16 hours before I took But I hate the side effects. Addiction, tiredness, and sexual side effects. Not sure if it's worth the pain killer or not.
I've been taking tramadol for 1 year I had back surgery to reconstruction of l4 l5 disks I take 2 a day is it gona be hard tt get of them. I have prescribed tramadol mg a day-I took one more each day than I should and ran out. Two days later I have bad cough and sneezing and pain in certain areas is worse-back and legs.

I am 27 and too young for neck surgery Thanks for this info on Tramadol. It has answered a lot of my questions and I am satisfied with the explanations. Please I want to know if tramadol can cause either kidney or liver diseases? While pharmacologic use of tramadol has not been associated with cases of drug-induced liver disease, acute liver failure can come as a result of intentional or accidental tramadol overdose.
Also, if someone has predispositions for liver and kidney disease tramadol may not be recommended for use, and you should inform your doctor before treatment is initiated. I am taking 50 mg. I am aged Should I discontinue it. If I dont take it I feel sluggish. I have been taking 2 50mg tramarol it and one mg tramadol re a day. This is causing severe sleep problems.
What can I do? I'm worried about going to bed as it's still 45BPMs 3hrs after taking it and after 1am i. I am taking 50mg of Tramadol every 6 hours for my pain and it is not helping. Is there a different medicine that I can take? I had intensive pressure in my head. For 12 hours this would come and go. When it can back it was immediate and intensive. I still have mild sensation and it is 48 hours. I feel weak and have sweats off and on. What is happening and how long will this last??
I am having horrible pain from a torn meniscus and lower back pain. I have been having horrible foot and leg cramps and pain at night. I wore up at least 10 times last and did not sleep much. My normal pharmacist is not on duty tonight so the one on duty would not answer my question. Can I take more than 3 pills tonight to keep the pain away? I take mg every 12 hours. I have arthritis on my Coccyx and spondylitis - I've been using straight Tramadol for about 2 years but my arthritis has gotten worse recently..
I'm finally going to cave and see if Gabapentin will help, narcotics just mask the pain, I've tried two and both useful for only hours at a time. Narcotics aren't the end all be all.. I'm just bummed this has stopped working as well Recently I have undergone sleep clinic tests and have been diagnosed with 'complex sleep apnea', not obstructive.
I now sleep with an ASV unit, and feel greatly improved. Can you take 2 paracetamol mg with 1 tramadol 50mg 3 times a day. I had a drink last night and was stressed and ended up taking 10 50mg on the head. Let me say for sure i will not be doing that again all ive done is be sick cant even keep water down not good. I took 6 50mg tramadol tablets, and I have been super nauseous all day. I eventually threw up, but even after that I still felt nauseous. Im also very tired, and dizzy, I even fainted.
Earlier my heart beat felt really slow but it was probably my imagination. Its been about hours since I took them and I still feel bad. I weigh pounds 17 year old girl, and I have taken tramadol before but four pills was the most I got up to, and I havnt taken any in about 3 months What should I do? I suggest you Call the Posion Control Center on the number to speak with a poison expert who will assess the risk of overdose and provide you with guidance about what you should do next.
I have took mg of tramadol in 1 go is it safe or not?? To day 1 October I start taking Tramadol, how safe are they for my organs 21 I am addictted to tramadol ,i realy want to stop it. I have a bad ear infection. Today my Dr gave me tramadol 50 mg to be taken every 4 hours as needed. Face is swollen and can't eat or sleep. So I took one pill at 3 pm. Took another at 5 pm took another at 7 then just took another at 9: Still isn't helping with pain.
My concern is could I od? I took mg of Zoloft last night along with a 50mg tramadol. I am having heart palpitations, but am tired all the time, cold, and depressed. I have lost weight and am down to pounds. Has anyone else had their labs jump all over the place in a year after many years of remaining stable? I am curious to see what my next lab draw shows…. I had my thyroid removed because of a goiter six years ago. This past summer the endocrinologist raised my dosage to This was about time that I was experiencing medical issues, including continued perimenopase, so I attributed the anxiety and shortness of breath to worry.
I ended up having emergency gallbladder surgery which increased my anxiety exponentially. My primary care physician tried many anti anxiety drugs to no avail. The made the insomnia worse. At one point, the ER department said my levels were fine after a gallbladder attack. I had my levels done for the endocrinologist and she called and said my levels were much too high, I had to stop taking for three days and begin at a much lower dose if In three months, I will be tested again, knowing that I will probably have to increase to My symptoms were off the chart.
I have never had symptoms of hyperthyroidism before so I was unprepared for all these crazy and frightening side effects. Hopefully I will start feeling better sooner than later. Exact same scenario here! Also was reduced after 10 yrs from mcg to , but after 12 weeks I have GAINED weight back that took me a long time and effort to lose! I am shocked at the similarities everyone has posted on this site. My Thyroid level was very low and she strongly suggested I see an Endocrinologist.
The interesting part is I am wondering if the medication I was taking was the problem. I always, and everyone else should always, get Brand Synthroid. The color of my last refill in September was different yet from the same pharmacy Walgreens and pharmaceutical company Abbvie. I feel awful and need to know how long it takes to calm down. I have A-fib that was corrected with an Ablation last Dec. I needed another Cardioversion in Jan.
I went to my family doctor for something else in May and she wanted to check my Thyroid level, so I had a blood draw. They called and told me she increased my Levo to 75mcg. I went back Nov. I am on mcg of synthroid. My dr recently prescribed a mild diuretic for me to take at night. I unknowingly took a synthroid tablet rather than the similar looking diuretic. My heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest, I could not breathe well, and my legs and face went numb.
I went to the emergency room. After some time all of my symptoms eased. I was not informed that this would affect my thyroid so I continued to take mcg on a daily basis for 9 weeks, this caused me to have a thyroid storm. My heart rate went to bpm, I experienced extreme tremors, sleeplessness loss of appetite eight loss and tachycardia. However after 2 days all my symptoms returned and I had to stop meds again. My doctor wants to wait 2 weeks before running more blood tests. I am at a loss and I am desperate to find answers.
Has anyone experienced this? Sharon, 2 years ago I was extremely tired and was vomiting a lot. I went to the doctor and found out I had h-pylori as well has hypothyroid. They put me on 75mcg a day and I literally went insane. I went back to the doctor and my test showed I was now hyper so they continued to lower my dosage. I now take only 15 mg of armour thyroid.
I felt normal until now. Lately I have been getting lots of panic with extreme weight loss I think like 15 pounds and am having same symptoms I was having before. My wife has been a mess since seeing her doctor last week. Pretty much every symptom of too much medication. When she went in her TSH was low at 0. Those numbers would indicate decreasing dosage or at a minimum of leaving it the same. She weighs lbs. Her resting heart rate sitting at dinner was BPM. I had a thyroidectomy 2 years ago and have been on micrograms of levothyroxine.
Everything was fine until about 30 days ago. Had severe palpitations and visited the ER. My endo lowered my dose to Felt awful for about a week but then began to improve. The palpations subsided and it looked like that would work fine. Then I got hit with heavy anxiety out of the blue. He lowered it again to last week. Had to get a prescription for Xanax in the meantime to control the adrenaline surges. I am really worried about my daughter. She has been on Levothroxine 50ml for years.
About three weeks ago annual blood tests indicated that she needed an increased dose 75ml Within a weeks she was displaying many of the symptoms above. She has Down Syndrome, and is unable to vocalize her distress. Her behavior and anxiety is resulting in her becoming aggressive. Whilst we are awaiting her to consent to blood tests she remains on 75ml. No one seems able to take my concerns seriously, putting it down to her having Down Syndrome.
I am at my wits end trying to get answers. I felt some jet lag after a 12 hour flight and decided to take an additional 88 mcg to see if it would make me feel better. That night I got zero sleep. The next night 1 hour. Most people who quit need more thyroid meds but I went hyper. Hyper symptoms is not good anytime but especially when you just quit smoking. What a nightmare but I survived and now I am a non-smoker and need less levoxyl.
I have been on synthroid for 30 years and suddenly after intentional weight loss I began to be overdosed on my thyroid medication. I was reduced from. My doctor has reduced it to. I hope this works. We think I was over medicated for quite a while. I had headaches, jittery feelings, and palpitations, luckily no hyper tension, my blood pressure is very,low on the best day. I hope this will settle.
Is it likely I might come off the medication or can it go lower? About 7 years ago I had thyroid cancer and had my thyroid completely removed. Afterward I stayed cold all the time, so cold I had a blanket year around. I was taking over mg a day at first because of my weight. I was at pounds. Anyway about 2 or 3 years ago I had gastric sleeve surgery and lost about 50 pounds.
The doctor decreased my synthroid to mg a day except on Sunday and then I take 2 of my pills making it mg. I have started having nearly all the symptoms above just this year. Hot flashes are horrible, nearly every morning I wake up sweating even with the air on a low temp. I am prescribed mcg per day. I am always depressed, in spite of taking Prozac and Trazodone along with. I live in the deep south and no AC in the world can keep up with our heat, therefore if I am sweating I hardly notice it.
Should I go to ER? Only option here in my town. I have been on 0. But I started exercising a lot more,ingesting coconut oil and taking vitamins. I then began having these horrible, horrible bouts of panic, flushing, shaking, shortness of breath and nausea. One time I even threw up. When I realized it could be the synthroid, I quit taking it for a whole week to let me body calm down. Now I only take half — 0.
I would not wish these symptoms on anyone! I probably should have gone to the hospital because it was that bad. I purposely took mcg instead of 50mcg because I felt I needed that extra jump to get me thru some days… side effects of that are throbbing headaches, excessive body heat, and insomnia so far…. I too jumped my medication. I am going to my Doctor tomorrow because the side effects are getting bad.
I was over medicated by my Dr. I brought to her attention we did labs and I was always told too high she said or low at times. But never did my dosage change just a day cut out or half of my pill on a Sunday instead of whole. I experienced of the symptoms and even worry that this long on a high dosage could have hurt my heart. I recently was told I was given too much meds after a new endocrinologist told me I was on a high dosage for my weight.
Now I am at lbs from loss of weight that happened within 3 weeks. I hope these symptoms go away, and I get back on my old self. I was prescribed mcg. That night I had horrible leg cramps that hurt for two weeks and I never did that again. I had been taking 75mcg one day mcg the next. My GP said I needed to increase my dosage to a day.
This happened months back. I have reduced it back to 75 now as I was living in a permanent state of being awake. If I slept it would be for about an hour to 90 mins and was ratty and irritable. I was also worrying about my work for no apparent reason. After routine tests my GP said to reduce my meds and only have the higher dose on two days a week. I have been over medicated on thyroid hormone. It is definitely not comfortable. I feel sick, dizzy, sharp headache, anxious, impaired cognition, and all the symptoms mentioned in above article.
Symptoms will subside at lowering the dose. It takes about a week to feel a difference, not completely better. That takes a good 8 weeks. But if still feeling hyper at 10 weeks, another decrease may be in order. I just recently got a super potent dose of Synthroid mcg. Not a happy camper. Hope this helps someone. I too was over medicated, just recently went down to mg from mg. I had been dealing with high anxiety, sleepless nights, night sweats and rapid heartbeat… I have to go back in 3 months to see where I stand.
I have congenital hypothyroidism born without thyroid gland. I have been overmedicated accidentally for a while. I have had a hard time getting my dosage right. Do the symptoms of heart disease go away once you have gotten the right dosage? I have been on high dosage for awhile. Does anyone know if there is permanent damage? Just read your comment and this is definitely what I am experiencing.
I am actually taking Tirosint and my endo wanted to up my dosage to every other day alternating 25 mg and 50 mg. I also take Talked with my doctor today and am not going to take the 50 mg anymore. Was experiencing heart palpitations, dizziness to where I thought I might pass out, sweating, anxiety, headache, nausea.
It sucks it is so hard to get your thyroid dosage in a good range. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. You can also subscribe without commenting. How It May Occur.
