I am starting suboxone in the morning . If i take tramadol will it side effects? I can't take any opiates, between now and my first dose of suboxone or I"ll get deathly sick.I can find plenty of info. on web that says they are habit forming, but nothing saying they contain opiates. Please advise, thank
I found this recently updated information on tramadol.
"Therapeutic Class: Analgesic
Chemical Class: Opioid
Uses For tramadol
Tramadol is used to relieve moderate to moderately severe pain, including pain after surgery. The long-acting tablets are used for chronic ongoing pain.
Tramadol belongs to the group of medicines called opioid analgesics. It acts in the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain. When tramadol is used for a long time, it may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence). Physical dependence may lead to side effects when you stop taking the medicine.
tramadol is available only with your doctor's prescription"
The way I read this, it has been changed to an opioid medication. I would talk with your doctor before taking this medication.
mtvp? Am I reading this wrong? What is it about this medication that seems to be so contradictory?
Please, please read over some info on thre tramadol forum;Emily's post, etc. Tramadol is nasty and very addictive. it is made from a synthetic opiate but an opiate is an opiate no matter how it is synthesized. Also, tramadol's have an old school anti depressant in it, so with drawal from it can cause extreme depression. There is a TON of misinformation about this drug. I do think using it for short term pain management is good. It works well for many people, but because it has carried a label of being non opiate and therefore not terribly addictive I think people go into the drug with the wrong idea. Anyways, I wish you much luck in handling this. I am starting subox in a few days to get off methadone which I started taking to get off trammies. i.e. I don't know the answer to your exact question. peace to all!
