Even when Tramadol is used correctly and under the supervision of a doctor, you can experience adverse reactions such as nausea and dizziness. And if you have been taking Tramadol in combination with other drugs or taking too much, your risk of severe and sometimes fatal side effects increases.
Tramadol side effects may include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Appetite loss
- Muscle aches
Severe symptoms of misuse can include seizures and central nervous system (CNS) depression where your heart rate and breathing decrease, leading to loss of consciousness, coma, seizures, and an accidental overdose.
Some people use Tramadol alongside other drugs to self-medicate or increase their high; this is often called “polysubstance use.” The risk of Tramadol addiction is higher when it is taken with other substances such as:
- Other kinds of painkillers
- Sedative hypnotics (like Benzodiazepines and sleeping pills)
- Cold medicine
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the number of emergency department visits involving Tramadol abuse or misuse increased approximately 250% from 2005 to 2011.
Among people aged 12 or older in 2020, 3.3% (or about 9.3 million people) reported misusing prescription pain relievers in the past 12 months.
It’s essential to recognize the signs of Tramadol abuse as early as possible to prevent an addiction from developing.
Check yourself for signs such as:
- Pinpoint (tiny) pupils
- Changes in appetite
- Nausea or vomiting
- Slurred speech
- Impaired coordination
Tramadol misuse or abuse can also lead to severe adverse reactions, such as seizures. Seizures are most likely if you take large dosages of Tramadol (usually 400mg or more daily) for extended periods or if you take it with antidepressants.
In addition, you may experience serotonin syndrome if you take Tramadol with antidepressants. Symptoms of serotonin syndrome include:
- Jerky muscles
- Rigid muscles
- Lack of coordination
Tramadol stimulates opioid receptors in the brain and inhibits the reuptake of two neurotransmitters: serotonin and norepinephrine. Because of this, two forms of withdrawal, with two unique sets of symptoms – traditional and atypical opioid withdrawal syndromes – may be experienced.
Classic symptoms include:
- Gastrointestinal pain
- Muscle aches
- Body pains
Atypical syndrome symptoms include:
- Intense paranoia
- High anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Numbness and prickling
Generally, Tramadol withdrawal symptoms will last for only 5-7 days if a proper tapering method is used. Any symptoms that last longer than a week are considered post-acute withdrawal symptoms. Although these symptoms are not life-threatening on their own, they put you at a high risk of making wrong decisions and getting into dangerous situations. A medically monitored facility like Restored Path Detox is a safer option to get you on the road to healing.
Medically monitored detox offers a high level of care with around-the-clock monitoring.
We use FDA-approved medications for opioid withdrawal to ease withdrawal symptoms, manage drug cravings, and help you refrain from returning to drug use. Each medication is beneficial during detox and treatment in different ways.
- Buprenorphine fills opioid receptors for a more extended amount of time than Tramadol. While it can help minimize opioid withdrawal symptoms, it shouldn’t cause you to feel “high” or produce the same mind-altering effects.
- Naltrexone is used after early withdrawal when Tramadol is entirely removed from the body to maintain opioid abstinence. It works by blocking opioid receptors from being activated by opioid drugs.
