I just wrote you a long reply and for some reason it didn't recognize my name and password.
I just wanted to say that just in case you didn't know it, yes, ultram and tramadol are the same and they are addictive.
The are listed as non narcotic but in some states they are switching it.
It is vey much addictive. I was on it for a few years. I tolerated it very well, though it wasn't very strong, I didn't crash on it like percocet. Also, when you look up drug interactions. It says a big no with anti depressants. The funny thing, just the other day (and I heard it before) that it was very rare to have a problem with combining the 2. I heard it from my pharmacist.
There is another site that someone wrote a journal of the evils of the drug. Where she got the info, I don't know. My husband got off of it easily, I had a little trouble but she basically said, it was impossible and banned me. ( I have to laugh at that one)
I don't know what else to say. I just got finished telling someone that I needed to give back more b/c this board is filled with the most compassionate people and great moderators.
If I can be of any help let me know by email.
Blessings to you.
