Ultram side effects

I had a TVH on 5/31, and was precribed Ultram for pain at home. Starting on the 8th night after I started taking it, I had what I will call "nervous episodes". I had 8 of these during the month of June, and luckily, DH suggested I keep a calender of these episodes to discuss with DD at my 1st post-op visit. I posted on June 26th asking the sisters if anyone had these experiences (at the time. I was not connecting them to Ultram because I was not taking it regularly) I got 2 responses suggesting maybe what I was experiencing was medicine related. In my mind I was only taking Colace and Gas-X. (But I was still using an occasional Ultram). These were the symptoms: I would wake up during the night and feel such extreme nervousness that it felt like an electrical current was running through my arms, I actually felt like shaking my arms to somehow expel some of this nervousness. This feeling also happened when I woke from a nap, or when I woke in the morning. I thought I was losing my mind. So I addresses the sisters to see if anyone had the same experience. I thought maybe the problem was hormone related. Well, something clicked after I read the 2nd response and I got out my TIME?LIFE drug advisor, and there on the list of side effects were all my symptoms. Thank God!! When I explained these symtoms to Dr., the next day she asked me I had rapid heart beat during these episodes (that would point to panic attacks) I said No, give up? When I told her what I read about Ultram side effects, she was surprised and said she never heard of that happening. I'm sure I was the 1 in 100,00 people that experienced these symptoms, but I wanted to say thanks to my sisters for making me even suspect the problem was caused by meds, and to let you ladies know that if you are gong through something wierd like that, look to your meds, whatever they are, they all have side effects. Love you all. SOOO glad the castle is behind me. Patti W.

Meds and side effects

I had a similar experience yesterday that sent me to the ER. I had started hurting on Monday and that night I decided to take my Tylox for pain. About one hour later I was hot, dizzy, and very nauseated. I thought I need to go to bed. I went to sleep and woke up worse than before. I immediatly called DR and was told that I probably needed to go the the ER because Dr thought I had developed a hematoma in my incison. That really scared me.
DH took me in and they examined me and told me that it was a reaction to Tylox even though that is what I had been taking in the castle after the IV came out. DR at ER explained that you can get a reaction anytime after taking something on a regular basis.
So no more Tylox for me. I think I will stick with Tylenol approved by DR. So be careful when taking prescribed meds. If you feel anything different that normal after takine something call your DR, and let them know. Glad I did.

Ultram side effects

Listen gals, a word of warning regarding allergic reactions to ANYTHING.............In order to experience an allergic reaction to ANYTHING, you must first be exposed to it. Therefore, you will not experience an allergic reaction to anything the first time you use it. I like to use the scenerio of poison ivy in this aspect. If you were to take a newborn baby and rub poison ivy all over it's body, it will not experience an allergic reaction the FIRST TIME it is exposed to the offending allergen. However, the 2nd, 3rd or 100th time you have been exposed to something may very well be the time that you experience an allergic reaction. Do not discount anything when you are experiencing an allergic reaction of any kind. Just because you have taken a certain medication in the past with no adverse affects does not mean that your body cannot build up a sensitivity to such a property. This hold true for medicines, shampoos, hairdyes, foods and virtually anything else you can think of. For the record, when filling out medical forms and they ask you to list your allergies...COVER YOUR BUTTS and write UNKNOWN instead of NONE!!!

Just a little info I thought would be helpful to my sisters.......

Ultram side effects

Patti,
I'm glad you stopped the Ultram before it caused any further problems. My youngest daughters boyfriend had a grand mal seizure at work about an hour after taking that stuff prescribed for a migraine. I couldn't believe his doctors saw no connection. I did my own search on the internet and *immediately* found a warning on that particular drug that says it can cause seizures!! When it was mentioned to his doctor, the doctor still denied that there was any connection!! After several other exams and tests, the doctor has finally (9 months later) agreed that it was "probably the Ultram". Oh by the way, since my daughters boyfriend has a job where he stands in front of heavy machinery all day, he ended up with a broken nose and quite a few stitches across the bridge of his nose and under his chin from hitting his face on the machinery on the way down. Happy to say, since he stopped the Ultram, he's feeling fine! Kind of makes you wonder doesn't it? In the future I would definitely list that as one of those drugs as an allergy even though it's just considered an "adverse reaction". Hope you're feeling better now too!
