I have been taking 6 vicodin a day for chronic pain due to pulmonary hypertension and I am on medication that makes my whole body hurt. So , they prescribed me norco. I know that I am addicted now because I have been on it for about 4 years. My question is, I wanted to know how much ultram of the 100mg er I would need to take to keep up with the norco I was taking. Or if it even is comparible to the norco......
vintage , tramadol is just as addicting for some people more so.If you have an addiction to hydro then ultram is NOT a good choice as a replacement .There are many on here with ultram addictions. I am one of them .I would hate to see you go threw what I have .I would talk to your doctor about alternatives
I used ultram as an alternative when I could not get vicodins. I thought they were harmless, was told they were not addictive, but have since found out they can be much harder to get off of than vic's/hydros. I have read that the withdrawals are a nightmare. Do not go there.......
I have to agree -- WD's from opiate's suck -- but you haven't seen anything until you've gone through WDs of Tramadol (Ultram). Granted, I got lucky and didn't have the seizure's that some people do, but the DEPRESSION was 20x worse than any experience I ever had coming off Norco/Oxy's.
Also, their ability to kill pain is much less than what you are currently taking.
