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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: Your question is somewhat vague. All medications when appropriately prescribed for its indication and taken as directed by a physician should not be a problem. Vicodin is hydrocodone and Acetaminophen and is indicated for moderate to severe pain. The issue is the misuse/abuse of the medication. It has the potential for physical dependence, cause respiratory depression when taken in excess & death. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The most common causes include stroke, brain tumors, head injuries, genetic conditions, infections, abnormal sodium or blood sugar levels, etc. Certain factors known to provoke seizures include missing medication doses, alcohol/drugs, sleep deprivation and stress. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Potentially: Epileptic seizures can only be cured if a neurosurgeon could remove the area causing the seizures. Otherwise, seizures can be managed with medication, vagus nerve stimulator, or avoidance to stimulants that trigger seizures such as flickering lights or other causes of sensory stimulated seizures ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Only part of brain: At least at onset these seizures affect only part of the brain. Typically one remains awake - unless generalized to the other hemisphere or occasionally with complex partial seizures. Often confused with panic disorder, migraine headaches, dissociation, amnesia, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, and medication/elicit drug reactions. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
