Hello

Welcome to the board.

Ultram has long been touted as a non-addictive drug. It is what the drug reps filled doctors' heads with. It is through stories from patients that doctors learned the addictive properties of the drug. There were lawsuits. Now the info that comes from the company suggests that people with addiction problems can have an addiction problem with Ultram.

If you have withdrawal symptoms stopping the Ultram after 4 days, I believe the symptoms will actually be from the Percocet and Vicodin. The Ultram is just hitting the same receptors as the opiods. No matter which route you take, you will eventually have to face withdrawals.

I can not give any length of time concerning Ultram addiction. However, I do believe that trading Percocet and Vicodin for Ultram is in reality just trading one addiction for another. At some point, you will either have to go cold turkey or taper off one or the other. Talk to your doctor again and express all the concerns.

Wishing you well

I was on Tramadol on and off for a long time. At first the docs said it wasn't a potent drug...as I researched it after being on it for several months, sans the mumbo-jumbo, it tricks your brain into thinking it is on a narcotic. The withdrawals can be horrible and I would be under supervision as you taper off. The few times I went cold turkey I had the worst nightmares of my life and felt as if I were crawling out of my skin. Hopefully tapering on a schedule will help you.

Best of luck to you. :)
