What is Tramadol?
Tramadol is an opioid analgesic which treats moderate to moderately severe pain, and it works in the central nervous system (CNS). Also, long-term use may cause mental or physical dependence. Drug dependence can occur even when a person takes a drug exactly as prescribed, although it often sets in more rapidly when abused. The DEA reports that 3.2 million people in the US had used Tramadol for non-medical purposes.
Common brands: Ultram, Ultram ER, ConZip, Ryzolt, and others.
Street names: ultras, trams, trammies, chill pills, and beans.
Tramadol is an opiate with severe side effects, including risks for seizures, serotonin syndrome, and addiction.
The pain-relieving effects of this painkiller usually start within an hour of consumption of oral medication. Tramadol is often as effective as morphine for mild to moderate pain, but not for severe pain. It is also commonly used as a psychoactive substance because it works differently from other opioid drugs. This drug inhibits the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine; its effects can result in complex mood alterations. Additionally, because Tramadol binds to the brain’s opioid receptors and depresses the central nervous system, it presents many of the same risks as other opioids, including respiratory depression, overdose, and even death.
While most painkillers are schedule II substances under the Controlled Substances Act, Tramadol is a schedule IV opioid substance. Schedule IV means the DEA considers this medication to have an accepted medical use and lower potential of abuse than other more common opioids such as hydrocodone and oxycodone.
Tramadol Withdrawal Symptoms
First, Tramadol works by activating the opioid receptors and blocking neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine from being reabsorbed. Then, Tramadol’s regular intake interferes with the brain’s chemical messengers, causing physical changes in pathways and functionality. Once the regular opioid intake is interrupted and the drug leaves the bloodstream, a withdrawal syndrome occurs.
Opioid withdrawal intensity and length varies according to many individual factors, and for example, some of the most common withdrawal signs are:
- A runny nose
- Body aches
- Chills and goosebumps
- Stomach pain
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Pupil dilation
- Drug cravings
- Rapid heart rate and

Tramadol withdrawals tend to start within 12 hours of the last dose. Withdrawals usually peak within a couple of days. The level of dependency, personal physiology, medical and mental conditions can influence discomfort throughout a Tramadol detox. For that reason, it’s better to manage withdrawal symptoms within an inpatient medical facility using a Rapid Tramadol Detox procedure.
Tramadol Dependence, Abuse, and Dependence
Medically assisted detox offers a higher level of care than regular rehabilitation centers can provide. Furthermore, medical professionals monitor and control vital signs and drug cravings for a safer, more comfortable, and successful detoxification.
Although the FDA approves methadone and buprenorphine for opioid addiction treatment, these drugs are even more potent and often have lengthier and more severe withdrawal symptoms. Methadone and Suboxone are still opioids with the potential for abuse, dependency, and addiction. Therefore, patients should research these alternative medications with caution.
Tramadol Tolerance and Addiction
A study in the Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence shows tramadol negative effects on the GABA system. Gaba is the neurochemical pathway in our brains that, when stimulated, decreases neuron activity by decreasing the production of dopamine and other neurotransmitters. This important part of brain activity is often impaired by substance abuse.
Tramadol is a very addictive drug because it provides people with feelings of calm and pleasure. It also disrupts our natural production of endorphins, which helps us control pain, anxiety, fear, excitement, pleasure, and many more basic responses to daily events. Addiction is usually the result of an untreated tolerance. Tolerance occurs when there is frequent and long-term use of Tramadol, and the body needs more and more of the drug to reach the original effect. This escalation in dosage often leads to dependency following addiction.
Rapid Detox and Medically Assisted Tramadol Treatment
Medical professionals in reputable substance abuse programs can provide more effective and precautionary support through a Tramadol detoxification. Medical professionals clearly understand the challenges of an opioid detox. Therefore, they can provide the adequate support required to minimize health risks and discomfort through a withdrawal treatment.
This higher-level support can include medically assisted treatments that provide patients with medications to reduce discomfort while regulating vitals and rapid detox. The advantage of these programs is the ability to begin detoxification in a hospital. Once the symptoms are manageable, other therapies can help the individual manage cravings and emotions to recover from addiction to tramadol fully.
