Will this ever end? My husband has been taking Tramadol for the last 2 years for his back. Only now has his addiction been obvious. I had no idea until I started researching about the affects of this medication. When he first started taking it, it was great. He chose this medication because it was a non narcotic and I was so happy that he was concerned about that fact. He was no longer in pain and seemed to be happier. It is now to the point where he lies about everything. How many pills he takes, why he withdraws so much money from our account. He is even getting prescriptions from two different hospitals that I know of. I've seen him go through withdrawals and it is horrible. He hallucinates and is in so much pain and he cannot sleep. When we get into an argument about his pills, he blames everything on me. He gets so angry and he is such a different person. I feel so helpless. We have three young children, 2, 6, and 10. I don't want to leave him but it seems like he just doesn't care anymore. Has anyone gone through this that can tell me how to help him in any way?
