What Is a Tramadol Addiction?
Preventing users from feeling pain, many come to rely on Tramadol as they believe that without the drug, pain will be excruciating, even upon making a full recovery from the condition that initially required treatment.
What Are The Effects Of Tramadol Addiction?
Tramadol is classed as an opiate drug. As a result, many of the short and long term effects of Tramadol addictions are similar to those experienced when Methadone addictions arise.
The short term side effects of Tramadol addiction often surface four to six hours after consumption. Including sensations such as nausea, insomnia, drowsiness and anxiety, the short term effects of Tramadol usually alleviate naturally.
However, many individuals find it extremely difficult to cope with the short term effects of Tramadol addiction. As a result, they consume Tramadol continuously. Sadly, doing so gives way to many long term side effects.
The long term side effects of Tramadol addiction include impaired cognitive function, seizures, respiratory problems, hallucinations, depression, irregular heartbeat, liver damage and kidney damage.
What Are The Treatment Options For Tramadol Addiction?
Treatment options for Tramadol addiction include, but are not limited to, the following;
- Psychological Therapy
- Well-being therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Dialectical behavioural therapy
- Dual diagnosis treatment

What Causes Tramadol Addiction?
Like many other addictions, Tramadol addictions often arise when a mental health disorder, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder or stress obstructs an individual’s everyday life. Tramadol is also thought to be somewhat addictive. As confirmed by the NHS, due to the addictiveness of Tramadol, if the drug is required for more than a few weeks, medical professionals often provide a treatment plan that outlines how to stop consuming Tramadol. Sadly, this advice and guidance is often overlooked, and addictions regrettably arise.
What Are The Most Common Signs and Symptoms Of Tramadol Addiction?
The most common symptoms of Tramadol addiction include shallow breathing, dizziness, slow heartbeat, feeling cold, nausea, fatigue and weakness. If a Tramadol addiction is impairing your life, in addition to experiencing the symptoms noted above, you will consume large quantities of Tramadol on a frequent basis. You will come to rely on Tramadol, and you will find it extremely difficult to navigate your day to day responsibilities without Tramadol.
What Happens If A Tramadol Addiction Is Left Untreated?
Left untreated, Tramadol addictions can be fatal. Not only will physical and psychological side effects arise, but long term illnesses are often experienced. While treatment is available for the side effects and illnesses that come hand-in-hand with Tramadol addictions, in many instances, treatment can only reduce these. Unfortunately, due to the effects that Tramadol has on an individual’s psychological health, when left untreated, Tramadol addictions can also cause relationships to break down.
