My advice would be to go easy on the tramadol
. There is something unusual about this particular compound. Using it as a stopgap measure until you can restock your hydrocodone
is probably okay for the short term, but there is too much conflicting information about tolerance levels and intensity of withdrawal
symptoms after cessation of tramadol even in the short-term according to my guruand goto guy in such matters, Elijah. For the life of me I can't see why the risk of seizure would be any more pronounced than with any other opioid
, but risks associated with this particular medication are posted everywhere. I think it is mainly from kids doing a handful of these things and then pounding alcohol
but who knows for sure... As for the purported reduction in seizure risk from the use of clonazepam
, it is an anticonvulsant, however Elijah states that the effects would seem to conflict with the desired effects of the tramadol. I have found in my own research that clonazepam tends to cancel out many of the beneficial effects of opioids
, so my thought is, why are we having this conversation?
