... suboxone at around 9:00 pm last night, so its been about 16 1/2 hours. My friend who did the same amount as me was stupid and at about 6 this morning took a vicodin, that I knew would make him sick, but what about tramadol?
Ultram/tramadol works on the same brain receptors as regular RX opiates. Tramadol addiction is treated with subs just like from percs or vics or other RX opiates.
Arrrggghh! I get so upset when people are misinformed about this drug. (not mad at you!!! Just mad at the great amount of confusion this drug causes) Just because tramadol has a synthetic opiate doesn't mean it isn't an opiate. Like synthetic motor oil: it's still motor oil. It works on the same opiate receptors and can lead to one hell of an addiction and withdrawals. I was stuck on this for seven years and my dr just kept writing Rx's every month. Another problem with this drug is that it has anti-depressant chemicals in it so when you come off of it, not only will you have withdrawals, you will also suffer the worst depression you can think of. It's enough to make even the strongest person crazy and suicidal. If you are interested, take some time to read over some posts in the tramadol section/forum. We all want to start some sort of class action law suit against the makers because they like to claim it is virtually harmless (when it comes to addiction, etc) And they don't disclaim the anti depressant part either.Anyways, sorry for the vent and I'm sure I didn't even answer your question. It's just a sensitive subject and I want everyone to know that tramadol IS an opiate. Not as strong as others, but an opiate is an opiate all the same. I hope you are feeling better. Keep us posted.
