Try to get off of them before you get as bad as me. I've been taking 40-50 tramadol 50mg per day for ten years. I has completely destroyed my life and getting off of them is next to impossible, and I have no idea what to do. Trust me, if you're an addict, get off of them. They are highly addictive and the amount you take every day will get larger and larger. The withdrawal is severe. It's been compared to the withdrawal you get from heroin. Stop, or taper off ASAP.

For Opiate Withdrawal: loperamide -or- Klonopin/other benzos.
Should have shortened my first comment. Anyways, I started out with 74mg the first day (40, 20, 14) and tapered down to 8 today. I also used cimetidine (Tagamet).

Loperamide has taken away most if not all of my withdrawal symptoms. A week ago I was on about 140 mg of vicodin a day.Today should be the last day I'm on loperamide. This is the second time I've used this med and I have to say it's been a "miracle drug" for me. The worst thing for me during withdrawals are restless legs. It almost gets to the point where I would consider cutting off my lower legs just to get rid of the rls. However, with loper there was absolutely no restless legs. There a

Taking Tramadol & Phentermine Together

The MD knew withdrawals are going to be expected. I was given chlonodine and phentermine to help. It worked will and now I am off meds. All this tx was supported by studies. A general MD will not have the knowledge to feel comfortable.
Rudy  |  May 31, 2014
Try to find a MD who is a pain management specialist along with being an addiction specialist or addictionologist. These doctors are much more knowledgeable on pain management along with other treatment that will help support your pain management. For example, my pain management MD had me on a pain med from a chronic injury. He also discovered I needed testosterone. After a year of treatment my chronic pain was feeling so much better that we decided to try to stop the pain meds. The MD kne

taking keppra and tramadol at the same time..
Keppra is a seizure med. It made my wife go through what you described. Her doc changed her to lamotragene (spelling is off on that). My concern is that tramadol is not supposed to be taken by people with epilepsy. Or anyone with a higher chance of seizures. It lowers the threshold for seizures. So if you have seizures and are still taking tramadol, please talk to your doctor asap..m its not safe.

Mobic vs Tramadol
Mobic is in the same class as ibuprophen, Aleve, etc. They are all NSAID (non steroid anti inflammatory drugs) and Tramadol is not a narcotic pain med but it does mimic some opiate pain meds and gives you pain relief similar to taking an opiate
