I do not take any medications my BP is usually within normal range of 115 over 78. After taking aloe vera tablets. One today and one yesterday...I am experiencing increased BP and heart rate. It did however, take my heartburn away. I will not take anymore aloe vera orally. Will only use it on my skin from here on out. Not liking the feeling that it gives me.

I am 29 year old female..I took one capsule at midnight two days ago. I have been experiencing extreme stomach cramps and diarrhea. I can not keep any food in my system. I have been miserable for two days now. I will never take these pills again. I've tried to counter act the side affect with pepto but as of right now that's not working. I am trying to stay hydrated because it's pure liquid coming out. This is the worst feeling every...

This isn't about interaction between paxil (which I quit taking 10 years ago). This is about Ultram/tramadol. Either someone is afraid to admit it or they're just lying to themselves. The report I just viewed said only about 1% get addicted. Well.... I guess I'm special. Put me in the + 10 years of dependency "group." Cannot function without it everyday, and I mean a lot of it. I feel it is burning up my internal organs because I'm hot when it's freezing outside. Try to quit? Nothing I've seen on TV about withdrawal from any drug... heroin, coke, whatever (none of which I've every had any experience with) can stand up to what happens to me when I quit taking it. The illness, which is Flu X 100 times, plus pain beyond my ability to withstand, plus diahria, excess saliva and nose running... is something I cannot take. I've gone 3 weeks several times and still it does not subside. This stuff was given to me in place of hydrocodone after a severe injury to all 8 of my fingers. I was given lots of samples and told to go home after a year of 5 surgeries and therapy that made me faint, from the pain, constantly. Those samples were the worst thing that ever happened to me. My personality is different and I can NOT stop. TRAMADOL IS THE BAIN OF MY EXISTENCE and has cost me everything.
