I was just prescribed ultram for pain. I don't need it everday. I have a few questions:

1. Can I take it as needed or does it have to be daily?

2. It says NO ALCOHOL on the warning but I really enjoy a glass of wine or two on the weekend. I am not a heavy drinker. Very moderate. Is this still ok?

3. If mixing moderate drinking is a problem, can i take the weekends off of ultram if want to enjoy some wine with dinner or out with friends?
