big day today....stop the tramadol and start tapentadol :-/

Postby emmafifema » Sat Jun 14, 2014 12:45 am

I am absolutely dreading the next 24 hours, I have been taken off of Tramacet (took my last tonight) and at 7am I start Tapentadol slow release.

I basically take a hell of a lot of meds every 6 hours and oramorph inbetween 4 times a day. Now the Tapentadol is every 12 hours! And they have started me on the lowest 50mg dose.

I am so scared of the pain being horrendously bad! I really am dreading this :'(

My husband has had severe back/leg pain and was on Tramadol for 3 years, had operations on both legs and spine, took Morphine as well & even had spinal injections but nothing worked! We were referred back to Pain management and he got prescribed Tapentadol 50mg twice a day, this was increased 4 weeks later to 100mg twice a day and he says he has never had so much pain relief as he gets from these :-D So I would give them a go because I call them my husband's "miracle tablets" :-) I should mention he doesn't have fibro but my son does and I have had him referred to Pain management in the hope he will get these to help him as well.

Good luck, I hope they help you. Please let me know how you get on with them.

:goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: Emma. Hopefully things won't be quite as horrendous as you're thinking :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

I'll be interested in reading any updates you post, be they good, bad or ugly, as I'm almost at a point where there isn't much else I can add to the mix to try and get some relief, and am wondering if this might be something to ask my GP about.

From reading a little about it, I thought it would be a consultant that needed to prescribe it. My GP is pretty knowledgeable about FM, so is a decent point of reference for finding out about different things.

I am on tapentadol and I call it a miracle drug too. Been so much better since being on it. Get no real side effects from it, the worst bit was withdraweral from the ones I came off. These were fine getting onto. My dose has been built up to max now. So I take 100 mg morning and night slow release. Then I have 50mg norm release ones too which I take morning and night and usually in the afternoon too then a spare dose for in the night if I need it. But ATM I not needing my mid day one so only take both morning and night. I did find that I needed normal release too after I'd been on them a few months but now the 2 types combined work really well for me.

I was prescribed by a consultant.
