Please can someone tell me how to deal with tolerance



  • When i last had my meds...me and my PCP had begun to cycle my meds.

    Under his supervision we agreed to take smaller dosage of opiods to

    1. Assess where my tolerance for pain under reduced meds was.

    2. Assess what my true tolorance physically was to meds

    3. Assesing where and if i had a opiod dependancy and bringing my body into a lesser need state.

    This was to see where i could function and slowly rid ...reset...my body to work as if i was starting out anew.

    This was the plan forward..to periodically reset my body so the meds would be effective

  • There are over the counter sleep aids that might be helpful sleeping, and white noise machines.

    If it is pain waking you at night, that's a different situation.

    Well I take 2/50 tramadol which does help me sleep.

    Wonder I'd anybody has experience in taking one type of medicine and when tolernce is reached then swap over to a 2nd opiate then swap back to the original. Does that work?

  • Jon, as Sandi has pointed out, take the least amount possible of ANY medication. Secondly, tramadol should not be used for sleep! There are natural ways for sleep, and in worst case scenarios,there are medications available to assist in sleeping, tramadol is not one of them. Tramadol is for pain.
