If you are using the prescription painkiller Ultram, it’s important to read the medication’s label thoroughly to ensure safe use. Ultram is the brand name for tramadol, a narcotic-like analgesic that’s used to manage moderate to severe pain. It’s also available in an extended-release version. Most people can take Ultram without serious complications but it’s important to be aware of issues that could develop. Ultram can cause tolerance in individuals who take it for a prolonged period. This means the drug’s effects become diminished and patients need to take more and more to relieve pain. Patients should always talk to their doctors before doing this because the escalation of use can lead to dependence and addiction. Misuse, overuse, and abuse of any kind are very dangerous. Addiction, a potentially painful withdrawal, and overdose are all possibilities when using potent opiate (narcotic) medications.
Ultram Misuse, Abuse or Overuse Can Lead to Serious Problems
Taking Ultram in combination with medications and substances that depress the central nervous system can be deadly. These include alcohol, other narcotic pain relievers, illegal drugs, sedatives, hypnotics, tranquilizers and medicine for depression, mental disorders or anxiety. People who have suffered prior addictions should not take Ultram because they are more likely to develop a problem with it. People who have had a history of seizures, metabolic disorders or head injuries may also be susceptible to having seizures while taking Ultram. Taking too much Ultram or mixing it with other substances can cause an overdose. Signs of opiate overdose include labored breathing, slowed heart rate, drowsiness, cold or clammy skin, lightheadedness, serious weakness, fainting or coma.
A physical Ultram addiction is marked by a period of withdrawal, which can be quite intense and kicks in once use is suddenly stopped. Waismann Method offers a renowned opiate detox that can eliminate symptoms such as drug cravings, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, sweating, diarrhea, tremors, hallucinations, and insomnia.
Safe Ultram Detox Accomplished Compassionately and Quickly
Withdrawal management during opiate detox is so important in order to make sure patients are safe and comfortable. This also helps patients to guard against Ultram relapse. Waismann Method’s Ultram detox is safe, effective, humane and discreet. We begin our procedure with a comprehensive physical evaluation to check for any undiagnosed medical issues. Then the detox procedure starts with intravenous medication to cleanse the drug from patients’ opiate receptors. This happens in less than two hours. Our Ultram detox accelerates withdrawal symptoms, which develop and pass while patients sleep under sedation. They awaken without the awareness they’ve already passed through withdrawal. Patients typically stay in the hospital a total of 2 to 4 days before transferring to the recovery center. Our Domus Retreat aftercare facility offers private, luxurious accommodations and therapeutic treatments to assist patients as they transition to an opioid-free life.
