Did You Know?

Ultram is also known as tramadol.

Why Is Ultram Used?

“Ultram detox centers can help you or your loved one stop taking the drug.”
Ultram is given in oral doses and is used for people who are in pain following a surgery or injury. It is used for the management of moderate and moderately-severe pain in adults, according to Daily Med.

Ultram should not be given in excess of 400 mg per day. Patients who notice that they require more than 400 mg per day to deal with pain or those who feel a need for the drug should seek help from a healthcare provider immediately. The drug does cause a dependency in some individuals, so a healthcare provider can help by switching the medication to one that works better or by helping the patient stop taking the drug.

Withdrawal From Ultram

prokectknow-shutter217858825-hallucination-bwUltram can cause withdrawal symptoms and physical dependency. It is an opioid drug, so those who have had trouble with opioid dependency in the past should not be given the drug. It has a high potential for abuse, and it can be sought by those who wish to use it illegally and those who are addicted to it.

Withdrawal symptoms of Ultram include:

  • Anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Rigors
  • Pain
  • Nausea
  • Upper respiratory symptoms
  • Piloerection
  • Hallucinations
  • Paresthesia

Withdrawal symptoms vary from patient to patient, but if you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms, call a healthcare provider. Ultram should not be stopped abruptly, and a doctor will be able to help prevent withdrawal symptoms with a tapering system that lowers the dosage taken over time until it is no longer needed by the body. If you would like more information about tapering medications, contact us at .

Tapering a medication can help to prevent major withdrawal symptoms.

Types of Treatment

outpatient treatment centerUltram detox centers may be inpatient or outpatient facilities. These facilities focus on helping patients stop taking Ultram and help patients prevent symptoms of withdrawal with treatment medications and by tapering use of Ultram. Sometimes only one method is needed, such as tapering, while other times a combination of tapering and additional medications will be used to alleviate withdrawal symptoms. The type of system a detox center uses with a patient is dependent on how addicted or dependent the patient is. If a patient is only mildly dependent, a tapering method may be the best choice. If a patient is severely addicted, additional medications to counteract the withdrawal process may be needed.

Did You Know?

Detox centers can help manage withdrawal symptoms.

Ultram detox centers that are inpatient facilities are often paired with rehabilitation services. These services help patients by providing psychological therapies to counter the effects of psychological addiction to Ultram. Physical addiction can be treated by detoxification; however, the emotional addiction of a drug must be treated through therapies and 12-step programs. These programs allow a patient to interact with others with similar dependencies and may help a patient understand why he or she has become addicted to Ultram.

Outpatient detox centers work well for those who only have dependencies without full-blown addictions. These centers will help the patients stop taking the drug and manage any withdrawal symptoms that occur. Patients can come and go to outpatient clinics and do not have to stay at the facility at all times like they would at an inpatient clinic.
