I've been taking Suboxone for 2 months and was prescribed tramadol ER for pain. Will the Suboxone cause problems for me or cut down the effectiveness of the medication if I take the tramadol ER?
The tramadol will be completely blocked by the suboxone. You will have to stop your subs for a few days, you can take the tramadol during that period, but it will be several days for the subs to clear and the tramadol to work, taking more tramadol will not make it work quicker. you will then have to go back into wd in order to restart your subs when you are ready too.
Caffiene123, be careful with the Ultram my friend!! It has some very nasty withdrawals if taken too long or too much!! Sometimes worse than classified opiates. I'm just saying!! Doctors are too quick to prescribe this medication and usually don't inform the patient of the side effects that you could have, like seizures. Hope all goes well for you. NIK
last summer I went through this I took trams for several days and nothing then one day I took 4 like I had been and ended up at er and they prescribed me klonopin 1mg for wd they were so bad I had to call 911 I thought I was dying and they put u in like seizures and slure ur speech u go through sweats hot cold its awful
Hi, i've only just come across this question, combining the 2 medications can be very dangerous, please don't ever do this... read the interactions report below:
I didn’t have a problem with it the one time it was prescribed however through my own journey to recover from opiate addiction I have witnessed the damage it can do. Twice I saw former heroin addicts prescribed tramadol for dental work under the pretense that it wasn’t addictive. But both of these women (this was in 1998 and again in 2005), who were doing excellent in their recovery prior to the tramadol began having withdrawals logically accompanied by intense cravings. It was tragic because no one seemed to grasp the impact of the tramadol and when each relapsed the attitude was more along the lines that they weren’t working an honest program. Both of these stories saddened me and I can only hope that today medical professionals have more awareness that tramadol is NOT the “safer” pain killer for a former opiate addict.
