I was on Ultram daily for about 5 years and went to tramadol due to the itching. I was taking it after my back surgery and I know I was not addicted, I was dependent on it. I had been taking it for pain for so long, I was afraid that if I did not take it, I wouldn't know how I would feel. I always tried to take it with food but did feel very edgy when it first would kick in. As one of the other ladies said, it dulls the pain but does not make it disappear. Three days before my hysterectomy I stopped taking them with no side effects and have not started them since, I take Ibroprophin if I need something only right before or after supper. I can only suggest from long term usage of anti- inflammatory drugs and pain meds, stay off them as much as possible. They may mask other problems or issues that may need attention. Short term taken as directed, you should be fine.

I just read my post and then yours, and I REALLY hope that I didn't offend you with my joking reference to a 12-step program. It was not my intention to hurt anyone, and I have close family members and friends in a variety of very good 12-step programs. I have the utmost respect for anyone with the strength to face and deal with something as difficult as alcohol or drugs.

Kudos to you for doing that! I have read your other post regarding 12-step programs, and I hope that you will be willing to take enough medication to keep you comfortable during your recovery. I think the best way to do this is to have someone you're accountable to about your pain meds. I don't know anything about it, but accountability to someone who cares about you and wants to see you neither in pain or relapsed into an addiction would be the way to go, I think. Just being mindful of what's going on seems like 75% of the journey.

Again, I sincerely hope that I didn't offend you!
