Today I was prescribed tramadol by my dentist and was wondering if anyone knows what kind of drug this is. I am known to abuse Vicodin and Morphine so is this something I should stay away from or OK to take?
Tramadol hydrochloride is a prescription medication approved to treat moderate to moderately severe pain in adults. Currently, tramadol is not considered a controlled substance or a narcotic by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). However, this medication has significant potential for abuse and is classified as a controlled substance in certain states.
So do take care as Tramadol is also considered to be an addictive med.
Take care, best wishes!
Thank you so much for the info. :) I forgot to add that I also take 1mg of clonazepam 2x a day for anxiety and when I read the info that came with my script it says that you should not take tramadol with meds like these. Im scared to take it now but I know that I am on a low dose of the clonazepam and am in a lot of pain. Any thoughts or answers if it is ok to use both of these meds?? Any and all comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks...
I was prescribed tramadol after having surgery a while back and i am taking xanax,similar to what you are on and i had no side effects.
Better check with your phamacey just as a second opinion,but as far as the tramadol,just be careful when taking these and only take what you are prescribed,if you have an addictive personality and had problems in the past then you are aware of all the negatives and what can happen when one abuses,but i understand you are in pain and need pain relief so just be careful and dont take for long periods of time!!
Hope this helps
Take care and hope you're feeling better soon
