Ask a doctor or pharmacist. Do not double the dose to catch up. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. How to use the study: Keep all medications away from children and pets. This is what happens to your brain when you take Xanax
I want to know if it's safe to take tramadol and klonopin at the same time and what sort of interaction they will have Mar 1, 2. Swiyou should not take "cocktails" without having tolerance to both opiates and benzodiazepines or whatever You wants to mix. Even then it is still dangerous because of the central nervous system depression.
Mar 1, 3. Taking drugs is never completely safe. Mixing together drugs is even more unpredictable. If there is any indication that benzo 's should not be taking with these, my advice is stay away, but my pure intuition says there may be no problem. Jan 15, 4. I say has as long as swiys body can deal with the doses being taken then yes its fine in other words dont mix downers without a tolerance.. Feb 14, 5. I find the mix of a fairly large dose of tramadol mg and mg of klonopin a great mood brightener and anxiety reducer.
As an added bonus the klonopin does help keep seizures from high doses of tramadol at bay. Feb 14, 6. You should just stick with klonopins. Feb 14, 7. SWiM sees no problem combining the two but this is only based on personal experience. He used too and things were fine, no problems. Now he combines it with diazepam and on occassion alprazolam , no problems so far. Feb 14, 8.
This combination should be fairly safe, benzodiazepines might reduce the serotonin and norepinphrine effects of tramadol. Dec 17, 9. My advice would be to go easy on the tramadol. There is something unusual about this particular compound. Using it as a stopgap measure until you can restock your hydrocodone is probably okay for the short term, but there is too much conflicting information about tolerance levels and intensity of withdrawal symptoms after cessation of tramadol even in the short-term according to my guruand goto guy in such matters, Elijah.
For the life of me I can't see why the risk of seizure would be any more pronounced than with any other opioid , but risks associated with this particular medication are posted everywhere. I think it is mainly from kids doing a handful of these things and then pounding alcohol but who knows for sure As for the purported reduction in seizure risk from the use of clonazepam , it is an anticonvulsant, however Elijah states that the effects would seem to conflict with the desired effects of the tramadol.
I have found in my own research that clonazepam tends to cancel out many of the beneficial effects of opioids , so my thought is, why are we having this conversation? It was originally marketed as having less potential for abuse and addiction than other opioids such as hydrocodone and oxycodone. It was thought that tramadol was a safe alternative for pain management for opiate addicts and those in recovery from addiction, but experience has shown that tramadol is habit forming and can lead to abuse and addiction.
As a consequence, numerous reports of abuse and dependence have been received. Tramadol is most commonly abused by narcotic addicts, chronic pain patients and health professionals. Use of tramadol carries all the risks associated with use of other opioids and some additional risks as well. Like other opioids tramadol can produce physical dependence with severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms. Additionally withdrawal from tramadol can produce seizures which are not usually experienced as a consequence of opioid withdrawal.
The American Association of Poison Control Centers reports a total of 10, cases of tramadol exposure in with roughly half of those being single substance exposures that resulted in four overdose deaths. Although tramadol continues to enjoy unscheduled status under the Controlled Substances Act CSA , authorities are becoming aware of the true nature of this drug. Arkansas and Kentucky have both scheduled the drug as a Schedule IV controlled substance under state law, and Louisiana has passed legislation identifying tramadol as a drug with a potential for abuse.
In the U. Benzodiazepines such as alprazolam Xanax , clonazepam Klonopin , diazepam Valium and lorazepam Ativan are in the sedative-hypnotic class of drugs that includes alcohol and barbiturates. Sedatives are CNS depressants like opiates and opioids. Drug addiction experts claim that getting people off the benzodiazepines is more difficult than getting addicts off heroin. Coleman stresses that the modest benefits to be gained by benzodiazepine use simply do not outweigh the serious risks involved.
