I didn't feel like this quite fit under the "vitamins & supplements" thread, but admin feel free to move it if I'm wrong

 

Does anyone else take shitty opioids to avoid eating throughout the day? I started Tramadol (synthetic opioid) because they felt good and now I'm just miserable. As soon as I realized it made me not hungry it was all down hill. 

there are so many negative side effects (constipation, lethargy, lack of interest in pretty much everything, price) but I keep doing it.

 

Someone tell me I'm not alone here. I have lost the most weight that I ever have. It's so nice to be able to watch someone eating a slice of pizza or browse the grocery store and not even be remotely interested in anything. so I don't want to stop but I do. Has anyone been here and successfully gotten out of it?

 

I might mention that I also abuse Valium and sometimes alcohol so i just have a really addictive personality.

I hear you. I take ephedrine to suppress my appetite and I cannot quit. I take weekends off so that my body doesnt get used to it. If I take it everyday it is not effective anymore. I take lorazepam in the evening to help me sleep and ease the anxiety cause by the ephedrine. Between the 2 I my appetite is very suppressed. I've been doing it for about 5 years now and I hate the damage it is doing to my body and I hate that I cant quit. When I "break" on weekends, by Sunday I am starving. It's such a brutal cycle.

I used to abuse tramadol in conjunction with some other prescription and otc meds in my teens. Like you, I also didn't start taking them for weight loss but still very much enjoyed that side effect. Plus the pills were making me throw up damn near every day so my "recovered" bulimia loved that.

But I would frequently have what I later learned were absence seizures, and eventually ended up having an abnormally long grand mal seizure so I 10000% recommend quitting them asap! Please stay safe

I abused them for a long time. I always overdosed on them. Until I took my entire stash. I was in hospital and had a seizure and all.

I used to be very addicted to them. At one point i was taking like 9 a day. I would abuse them along with vicodin, and adderall. And all while i was in my teens :/
I was fucking stupid. And desperate to do anything that might possibly curb my appetite. Thats also why i started smoking cigarettes.
Im glad i dont do any of those things anymore

I've been on Tramadol for about 4 years now, for a spinal injury. After my surgeries, I was given Norco, but eventually stopped getting those after I began to heal, and was given Tramadol. Apart from helping with the withdrawals from the Norco, it didn't really do much of anything for me. I had no idea it suppressed appetite! It didn't have that affect on me, but DID make me lose a lot of my hair, and made my skin atrocious. It occasionally helped with my anxiety, though. I'm currently weaning myself off of it, and it's hell. Please be careful if you take a lot...you risk having a seizure if you stop taking them abruptly. Good luck to you!

I’ve only used tramadol a few times. But I use codeine like all the time, it’s the only thing that gives me escape. The saddest thing is no one has ever noticed, I feel so invisible .

I just take anything i can find basically, percs or opiates. It slightly suppresses my appetite but at this point i need to take more and more to feel something, therefore my appetite is barely even affected now.
Working out, running, walking, swimming, that shit is kinda fun when you're on the shniz, not gonna lie

I was prescribed it after I had surgery on my leg. I lost my appetite at first, but then it came back (not insane appetite, just normal). Plus it made me really constipated. I still have some left and I've had them sitting with my other pills, untouched, for the last 6 months.

I also only have two left. :( I take it on weekends to feel okay and fast while cleaning.

You can use Benadryl to potentiate opiates. I also take them with gabapentin sometimes to potentiate.

I'm only down to two Vicodin as well.

thanks guys.

 

update is that I ended up going to the hospital for this shit. Garbage doctor took the valium thing seriously but not the trama. He pretty much said I could stop anytime I want without going through withdrawal because it's essentially strong ibuprophen... so not true (according to personal experience and extensive research) and I was taking a lot...like 20-40 50 mg pills in a day at its worst which is probably why I never regained an appetite (I don't want to think about how much or how bad it was for me)! but at least I'm off the shit now. I also lost my access to buying more (by choice--I moved) and gained like 10-15 lbs (scared of the scale, sigh) in the process hence being back here  :rolleyes: is it bad that I read my original post and though "damn I miss that"

 

i guess i'm really lucky that I can cold turkey that shit and benzos at the same time tho and not have a seizure

I've been there, but please be safe. Go to the pharmacy and buy narcan (its otc) accidentally overdosing on synthetic opioids is very easy

Personally, I take Primatene with ephedrine as my appetite suppressant. The prices for pain killers aren't very cost efficient plus I've heard of getting hooked on opiods, so I don't take them much.

I got badly addicted to tramadol for awhile. I was stealing them from a family member. At first I just like the europhic feeling, but once I realized how much it suppressed my appetite, it all took a downward spiral. I'd run and burn 600 Cal's, pop a tram with some coffee and I was good til the next day. What I wouldn't give to have some now 🤔

Omg this sounds like me! I take ephedrine weekdays and take weekends off, too but I have to take it as Primatene. I take Sertraline (Zoloft) to help me sleep and for anxiety, I've been taking that for a few years, prior to taking ephedrine again. I also take Bupropion in the morning (Wellbutrin) for anxiety.

Same here, used to take them for my back and found it was more of a force of habit instead of a reason for taking them, and my skin was acting itchy and stuff too so i stopped- never affected my appetite. Yes, please do not stop abruptly!

haven't taken opiates in months but i found a bottle of tramadol in my bf's house and took like 12 50mg pills over like 24 hours the other week and felt realllllly nic\e, but the morning when i ran out i got the worst fucking hangover/wd and it was super miserable. i hate opiates because i have to take pretty high doses to get a nice buzz and i'm terrified of nodding off, that's why i rarely take them. like i could feel the cravings starting after one day of being high on them and that really freaked me out.
