... switched (I told him I was comfortable with 2 Tramadol per day. Now I am taking 3 Ultracet per day and everywhere I read they say the treatment should be no longer than 5 days. I am afraid I will have to be on some type of pain killers for the rest of my life and will have to be very wise about it. I don't have an addictive personality and I don't mind the pain to offset taking meds. Besides the fact that they are addictive is there any other major reasons that I should not take them for long period? I appreciate any comments that could help me with this. Best regards
