I have 50mg tramadol, does ot come in lower or higher mg?
Actually, the dosages in the US are 50, 100, 200 and 300mg. But as others say... be very careful. Also, if you are taking any anti-depressants like Cymbalta, Effexor or Wellbutrin..beware. Tramadol acts on the Serotonin levels in your brain and if you take any other medications that act on Serotonin, you risk Serotonin Syndromes which causes the seizures and other problems.
Doctors like to prescribe it because it is a synthetic narcotic but it is just as dangerous because it packs the same withdrawal punch without the narcotic high you would get with hydrocodone and other narcotics.
I take 100 mg's 3 times a day and it doesn't do much for my severe Lower Back pain. Though I have lived with RLS for the majority of my life and this drug has completely relived me of any symptoms of Restless leg syndrome. I would recommend one 50mg one hour before bed to completely relive you of this very sleep depriving issue. The withdrawal is very severe with continuous mini seizures throughout the entire day and night. I have gone through withdrawal of other proscription drugs and this one is by far the worst! Take with extreme caution!
I've been taken tramadol for years for chronic back and neck I use to take 3 to 4 at a time every 6 hours with no problem but now I'm on Cymbalta and my health care provider told me about the problem so all I can take now is up to 6 pills without any problem I just had back surgery again so of course I'm on the good stuff now
I have been on Tramadol first 50 mg 3 times a day for last 7 years, and in the last 2 years 100 mg 3 times a day, not extended release as my system cannot absorb ER. Doctor ordered it wrong again for ER. I had to cancel and now waiting for new Rx to go through. It can be ordered through mail order as I have had, but then my dr. says no cannot mail order Tramadol, but guess what, it can. Had to reorder it from mail order. Some doctors, excuse me. Read my freaking file.
