Ultram/Tramadol as an AD?

Posted by med_empowered on November 5, 2006, at 3:38:11

Does anyone know about this? Apparently, tramadol is chemically related to Effexor, so there's various sorts of re-uptake inhibition going on, along with the whole opiate thing. There are reports of "tramadol addiction" and abuse, but they seem infrequent, so the stuff is still unscheduled. My own guess is that if the reuptake inhibition is anything like Effexor's, alot of the "addiction" could just be explained as a withdrawal syndrome.

ANyway..has anyone tried this? In theory...could it work? It seems like it would help with anxiety, and also that it could boost dopamine a bit, unlike most ADs. Do any shrinks bother with it, or is the interest in opiates limited to Temgesic?
