Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Controversial: There are studies on both sides of this issue, with some researchers finding that tramadol did reduce withdrawal, while others finding that it either did very little, or in some cases actually made it worse. A problem is that doses of ultram in the therapeutic range (300-400 mg/day) can cause seizures. My patients have told me mostly that ultram did very little for them, but a few got + results. ...Read more

How to deal with benzo withdrawal (xanax, klonopin, (clonazepam) ativan, valium, etc..)?

Not fun: Usually the strategy is to slowly taper off the benzo and use a long-acting one, and sometimes it's really, really slow. Here's a trick i sometimes suggest to my patients: when your dose is pretty low, gently drag you pill across an emery board before you take it. One time the first day, two times the next, etc. That way you're very gradually cutting the dose down. Good luck and stick with it. ...Read more

Why is klonopin (clonazepam) addicting?

Klonopin (clonazepam) addiction: Good question. For vulnerable people, the pleasurable sensations that make addictive drugs disastrously attractive occur when Dopamine levels in the brain’s reward area surge abruptly. Usually there are neurons in the brain that inhibit this result, by downregulating dopamine-producing neurons. Benzos like Klonopin (clonazepam) inhibit these "inhibitory" neurons -- taking the brakes off the Dopamine surge. ...Read more
