    Default tramadol addiction

    I have just joined the forum and am hoping to have some questions answered about my struggle with tramadol for pain. My whole family is physicians and after a bad head-on car accident where I broke my spine in several places, I was always supplied with the pain meds I needed. I found myself not wanting to take vicodin anymore and was able to quit all together for several years. However, as life went on and I was working full time as a teacher, I began having chronic pain. My father gave me Ultram saying it was non-addictive and would help with my pain without giving me that "High" feeling. I do get that high feeling but in a dif. way. I was productive, happy and energetic. I was so stoked on them that I continued to take them off and on for years. Then when I got pregnant I was told that I can not take them. I went off and had quite a bit of trouble with depression and fatigue. After I had my daughter and breast fed for several years., I went right back on them. I had never had issues with deppression or mood swings and now I feel like it is part of my personality. How do I get passed this? I don't want to rely on a drug for my happiness.

    How much tramadol do you take each day? When taking large quantities there are real dangers of seizure. God bless.
    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.

    hey auralie, i'm new to this forum and had a very hard time with vicodin and the happy socializing feeling it gave me, i'm now 18 days free and i truly understand how ya feel. i am now taking tramadol hcl if i need it but after 4 years on vicodin and tryin to quite cold turkey, well it was like hell in my own body and i didn't feel i could socialize or be happy and up to par per-say if i wasn't on it.the tramadol i'm using is part of the tapering off the vicodin. i also went to a new dr that started me on 2 valium 2x a day for 3 days, then 1 valium 2xa day for 3 days and then 1 valium 1x a day for 4 days. 2 seroqel sleeping tablets every night for the lenghth of my script and so far so good. off the vicodin, down to 1 tramadol and i'm going to natural melatonin or valaria root for sleep. NO MORE ADDICTIVE STUFF if i don't absolutely have to have it. try your hardest to beat this, it's just not worth the vicious circle you stay in. anytime ya want to talk i go by the name..wasashamed on here.good luck and stay very strong and possitive and i'll keep you in my prayers
