Clonidine is used in treatment of tramadol addiction as they both have the same receptor.
You must be very careful when mixing the two I almost died from mixing the wrong drugs cause clonidine is normally used as a very strong high blood pressure medicene and lowers ur blood pressure a lot and I heard they recently just started using it for opiate withdraws so I would be carefully especially if u have a bad opiate problem because if u mix then both it can be life threatening. I had mixed the wrong things and I ended up in the ICU with a heart rate of 32 and came close to death I could remember fading in and out so please be careful not fun definattly life changing the reason I lived was cause I had a great doctor and the stuff they injected in me called narcimen and if u know what opiate withdrawls feel like multiple that Times 50 all in the course of a few hours not a good feeling so be careful
y would u take them together,clonidine is for opiate withdrawl and tram is a weak opiate.
there is no Interaction that I found. I am not and expert only a lay-man and could be wrong.
Subzero is right. However, I found this info under Ultracet:
"Ultracet is used to treat moderate to severe pain for a period of five days or less. It contains two pain-relieving agents. Tramadol, known technically as an opioid analgesic, is a narcotic pain reliever. Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in the over-the-counter pain remedy Tylenol."

tramadol is not only addicting, it could bring on seizures if you suddenly stop taking it. Please be careful with these meds. By the way, since you have better access to a pharmacist then most people, why not ask him/her?
My Best Wishes,
hi alyssa, the tramadol is made like an opioid or a man made form of what our brains produce.i know that every pharmacist is told that tramadol,ultram and ultraset are not made from opiam.chemists have engineered what is known as an opened end ladder or just close enough to mimic the same chemicals with just enough to be classified as non narcotic.but if you ask anyone on them if there is withdraw when stopping,they will say yes. but back to your question,clonidine lowers the blood pressure to intensify the tramadols "non-narcotic" effect.
