... I take 400 mg a day and I find it helps me with my depression. I do see a therapist and I want to know can she prescribe me tramedol? or can she do it under Ultram? As I finally am happy for once in my life and I have tried alot of anti- depressents and none of them worked. So again is it possible to have her right me a scribe for tramedol/ultram
Tramadol - I have depression and I have been on tramedol for pain due to ankle fusion for 9 months.?
Added 11 Sep 2013:
sorry but I made a mistake on my daily dosage of tramedol. I take 200mg a day. Sorry!! Hope I can get an answer quickly as I have an apt. with my therapist tomorrow. Thanks all
In my experience, therapists don't usually prescribe pain meds, at least not on a routine basis. But, you should talk to her and tell her how much tramadol has helped your depression. Perhaps she can talk to your primary care doctor. All you can do is ask.
re: Ankle problem? Caringlady- what is going on with your ankle fusion? I have learned that my arthritis seems to (feel like) have dissolved my ankle into needing a brace for support, to keep it from recent pronating (turning over to the inside-makes my feet swell up-I think it is happening to both but so far the left ankle seems to be ahead of right). This another shocking surprise in trying to keep up with all these osteoarthritis symptoms when changes in S.Florida pain medication prescribing through a wrench in how well I can function and keep up with regular tasks, plus try to get out and to doctors when I am so overwhelmed with pain and cannot get around like I used to. Ankle problems pretty new to me, can you offer any insight?
Hi, Tramadol possess SSRI properties, which is why it helps your depression. I would advise against being prescribed this to deal with depression though as it can be habit forming, and also, an antidepressant medication will be more effective. Citalopram, for example is a good one. I have taken this for years. However, there are many for your doctor to chose from. As you are keeping your dose low, hopefully you won't have a problem using Tramadol for pain
