Tramadol
RAPID DETOX UNDER SEDATION

Rapid Tramadol detox under sedation is a medical detoxification treatment offered by All Opiates Detox for patients dependent on Tramadol. It consists of sedating the patient and removing Tramadol from the brain receptor while the patient is sleeping. Acute withdrawals are precipitated with an opiate blocker. These withdrawals will pass during the sedation period. Once the withdrawals are over, and the brain receptors are free of the opiate Tramadol, a blocker is placed to prevent any drugs from getting back into the brain receptor.

The blocker of choice used at All Opiates Detox is an implant. Dr. George prefers the Naltrexone implant blocker for several reasons. First, the Naltrexone implant lasts approximately two months, as opposed to Vivitrol (lasts around 28 days) or tablets (have to be taken daily). Another reason our physicians prefer the implant over the injection is for patients that may not be able to tolerate Naltrexone due to side effects, sensitivity or allergies. The implant can be removed from under the skin, whereas the injection stays in the body for about 28 days and therefore cannot be removed once it is administered. It is recommended to remain on Naltrexone maintenance therapy for at least one year to allow the brain to heal from the damage caused by the drug use and abuse.

Our success rate is near 100% for helping patients detox off opiates without the excruciating pain and discomfort of the withdrawals. Aftercare consisting of the Naltrexone opiate blocker, psychotherapy, and 12 step programs are recommended to ensure long-term abstinence and success.

Tramadol DETAILS

Tramadol is an opiate used for moderate to moderately severe pain. It is taken orally and is available as Ultram (trade name), Ultram ER (extended release for around-the-clock dosing) and Ultracet (combination of Tramadol and Tylenol). The analgesic action of Tramadol is about one hour after administration, the peak is within  2-3 hours, and it lasts about 24 hours.

In 2014, the DEA changed Tramadol to a controlled substance, classifying it as a Schedule lV, due to the opioid-like side effects, withdrawals, dependence, abuse, addiction, and overdoses.

Tramadol SIDE EFFECTS

The most common side effects are constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, fatigue, headache, nausea, and vomiting.

Tramadol WITHDRAWALS

Symptoms of withdrawals when Tramadol is discontinued include anxiety, diarrhea, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and tremors.

Tramadol OVERDOSE

Overdose symptoms of Tramadol include cold, clammy skin, CNS (central nervous system) depression, constricted pupils, respiratory depression, cardiac arrest, and death. The risk of seizures and convulsions is greater when Tramadol is taken in large doses by users seeking euphoria or a “high”.

Tramadol ABUSE

Tramadol is more addictive than initially thought. Improper use and abuse of Tramadol can lead to dependence, tolerance, and addiction. Tramadol was not considered a controlled substance and was easily accessible through a prescription from a doctor and even for purchase online.

Improper use and abuse of Tramadol can lead to dependence, tolerance, and addiction.

Opiates can be habit forming, causing not only physical, but also psychological dependence. Withdrawals may occur if the dose of the opiates is reduced or discontinued after long term use.

Using opiates for an extended period of time can lead to tolerance, where the user needs to increase the dosage of their opiates to achieve the desired effect, whether the desired effect is pain control or euphoria.

Once the patient develops a tolerance, it becomes even more difficult to stop using due to the withdrawals. Symptoms of withdrawals are an indication of physical dependence and addiction to the opiate Tramadol. Most patients describe withdrawals as the worst, most frightening experience one will ever encounter. One can only imagine the excruciating pain when the opiate user says that they’d rather die than go through the withdrawals. Tramadol physical dependence symptoms, such as withdrawals, lead to psychological dependence. That is when addiction takes over the mind and life of the Tramadol opiate user.
