About Me: Male, 71, Cleveland, GA, member since Feb 2009
I am a 60 year old male and had a auto accident in 1998. About a month later I had started having heart attacks. I finally ended up having a triple by-pass in 2000 and now completely disabled.
[More] I started on Percocet after the auto accident, then Norco, then I went to a Neurologist who started me on a small amount of Oxycontin until he kept upping the dose to 100 mgs per day.
I started coming off the Oxycontin a little at a time. For over a month, I had withdrawals and it was the hardest thing I have done. This was for nerve damage caused by the wreck.
They just put me on Tramadol a week ago and I have been taking two 50 mgs per day for a few days now.
I read yours and others problems with this med and will not take anymore. I don't feel that I have it in my system enough to have caused damage yet.
I want to thank you and others on your site for sharing what they went through getting on and off this med.
I was also told that it wasn't a narcodic and I wouldn't get hooked.
Thanks SO MUCH for keeping from this drug and the effects it causes.
