For those that have found themselves in the grips of a Tramadol addiction, it is often the case that it started out as a short-term and well-intended method to conquer pain. However, due to its addictive nature, this synthetic opioid pain medication can cause dependence that becomes difficult to overcome without the right support and a proper detox programme.

Have you found that you are increasing your daily dose of Tramadol following its initial prescription? Are you experiencing issues relating to family, work or your personal commitments?

At The Dawn Thailand drug rehab, we not only provide psychotherapy to explore the root cause of your addiction but also therapeutic treatments, which form part of a programme that ensures successful sobriety.

Comfortable and private room in a beautiful riverside facility with full-service amenities at your fingertips.

We incorporate a wide range of holistic approaches to help our clients develop mental strength and improve overall health.

We employ a team of licensed professionals who have extensive experience in the fields of mental health and addiction.

Signs and Symptoms of Tramadol Abuse

Taking Tramadol beyond the point of its prescribed use and increasing dosage to extend its sometimes euphoric effects is a true sign of a dependence upon the drug.

There are several signs that indicate your intake of Tramadol is becoming more than what it was originally intended for; now a habit that results in some of the following symptoms:

  • Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Impaired coordination
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Slurred speech

In addition to serious physical health issues, do you also find that since becoming addicted to Tramadol you are neglecting your responsibilities and letting others down? Do you feel a deep sense of depression that you just cannot shake? The mental and physical effects of Tramadol are not to be taken lightly and can cause serious problems not only to you but also to your loved ones.


Effects and Consequences of Tramadol Addiction

Long-term abuse of Tramadol can result in serious health issues. Liver and kidney damage, as well as complete liver failure are just a few of the severe effects the drug can have on your physical health. In addition, risk of seizures and convulsions are also possible, which can become life threatening consequences.

Tramadol Withdrawal Symptoms

Tramadol not only activates opioid receptors in the brain but also blocks neurotransmitters from reabsorption. This results in one of two withdrawal phases:

Early withdrawal

  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • High emotion
  • Hypertension
  • Racing heart
  • Restlessness

Late withdrawal

  • Depression
  • Drug cravings
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Stomach pain
  • Vomiting and diarrhea

So what exactly does a detox require in order to be fully effective? Medication is often prescribed to ease what are inevitable withdrawal symptoms that can range from depression to insomnia, whilst medical monitoring provides necessary information on both your physical and mental state to treat your individual needs specifically.
