Is tramadol and vicodin or percocet in the same family? I had a seizure from cymbalta (duloxetine) and tramadol and one of my drs says they're in the same family.

Is tramadol and vicodin or percocet in the same family? I had a seizure from cymbalta (duloxetine) and tramadol and one of my drs says they're in the same family.

All analgesics, but: Percocet =oxycodone+tylenol; vicodin=hydrocodone+tylenol. Oxycodone/hyrdocodone are opioid agonists and thus belong to same class as opioids. Tramadol is a non-opioid derived synthetic opioid and acts only as a partial opioid. Tramadol + Cymbalta (duloxetine) combo decreases seizure threshold and thus can induce seizure in susceptable folks. So, combo use is cautioned. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

What are the most common causes of sleep onset seizures in the mid 30's?

Several: Based upon the age of insert, they would almost certainly be partial insert seizures (aka "localization related"). At least half the time, no clear reason is uncovered for them starting. Other causes include prior trauma, abnormal tangles of blood vessels stuck in the brain, "birthmarks" on the brain in a localized area, among others. Brain tumor is possible, but less common. ...Read more

MDMA : Mdma is a very potent stimulant, and affects the central nervous system by causing massive amounts of serotonin to be released. The (mostly) permanent side effects on the brain, affect those areas where serotonin is important in the brain, including the anterior lobes, and hypothalamus, areas closely connected to personality, and the experience of anxiety. Xanax belomgs to the class of benzodiazepines, which are commonly used to relieve anxiety, but are well known to have long term mood altering side effects (major depression). Vicodin is an analgesic, and has effects on dopamin release in the brain and peripheral nervous system. Brain physiology and chemistry is very sensitive, and largely unknown. In my opinion the use of mdmd is hazardous at best, and the long term side effects on the brain are not beneficial. Combining mdma with any other mood altering drugs is even more hazardous, and may result in fatal consequences. ...Read more

It has the potential for physical dependence, cause respiratory depression when taken in excess & death. ...Read more

I am trying to get a script for my Vicodin. ?

In person evaluation: If you need a prescription for an opioid like Vicodin, you need to seek an inperson evaluation for appropriateness. An online physician source isn't a feasible, or appropriate, mechanism for something like this. I do wish you the best of luck though and hope your issue can be addressed sooner rather than later. ...Read more
