Trying to stay away from the hard stuff

Hi folks. I'm currently on Ultram ER, Soma, and Valium for my back pain ( i also suffer from bad insomnia). This combo works very well for me. My concern is that I will become addicted to these meds. I was on Hydro and methadone before and dont want to go back to those meds. Is Ultram really that addicting?

Re: Trying to stay away from the hard stuff

For me ultram was hell on earth to get off of. It worked pretty well for the pain but it also has a mood altering effect that I had no energy at all until I took my daily dose. I tapered very slow and still went through hell. Thats just my experience but I know a lot of people have had the same problem.

Re: Trying to stay away from the hard stuff

I took Ultram for 3 years. It gave me so much energy. When I stopped, I went through horrible depression. I did some research and found that it contains some sort of anti-depressant. Even though it's not classified as a narcotic, it affects the same receptors in the brain as narcotics. You can do a search on Ultram on this board and see all the many stories of other's addictions to it.
