The Dr. can't help you unless you give him all the info. (Just like you did on this forum) Good luck.
Thanks for the comment. I know you are right. I guess I`m just worried that it wasn`t the cause and that it was the cause !! and also I suppose its something I find hard to tell people I`ve done. Its a bit easier on here?
I agree you should come clean with your doctor but you might find that your primary care physician is kinda clueless about drug abuse. There are specialists in the addiction field, usually but not always psychiatrists, who might be a better source of information for you. Your PCP can probably refer to one. No need to be embarrassed. You did it. It's over. Lots of people have done the same thing or else there wouldn't be all these treatment centers, would there?
admitting your problem is the first step.... and i am so happy that you have. my opinion is, is that you be totally honest with your doctor.. yeah... it aint easy, but if your sincere in your efforts then it is really important. i not only told my doctors and asked that they never prescribe me any opiates, i called my pharmacies and told them NEVER to release any to me. i know if i wanted them bad enough again i could get it, but i know i would never change my primary doctor... i feel being open to others as you have done here is very cleansing.
i wish you so much strenght... you are among wonderful people here!
peace and blessings.... stars
Sorry to hitch a ride on someone elses post but everytime I try to post my own question it says the thing is full. I feel like this Ultram has a bit of speed in it and I hate that feeling if I didnt I would be a coke addict not a downer fiend. Does this feeling go away its too much like ritalin which I stopped taking cause I absolutly hate this feeling, I miss my percs and vics already. Badd
the consensus on this forum is that ultram is a more severe addiction than vicodin, norco. The withdrawal is more prolonged and more severe......be careful.......hjp
