If Ultracet is such a miracle drug why do some individuals have to go into Rehab for detox ?
This from the FDA Ultracet monograph:
"Indications and Usage for Ultracet
Ultracet® is indicated for the short-term (five days or less) management of acute pain.
Ultracet® should not be administered to patients who have previously demonstrated hypersensitivity to tramadol, acetaminophen, any other component of this product or opioids. Ultracet® is contraindicated in any situation where opioids are contraindicated, including acute intoxication with any of the following: alcohol, hypnotics, narcotics, centrally acting analgesics, opioids or psychotropic drugs. Ultracet® may worsen central nervous system and respiratory depression in these patients."
One can only assume it has been prescribed or taken inappropriately.
