Hi! Everyone's body responds differently, but I have preferred Ultram for my back pain over darvocet or vicoden. Darvocet made me feel more out of it, and it slowed my breathing. Vicoden made my stomach sick. Ultram cuts my pain and I do not feel loopy. But, do check with your doctor. Take care, Kera4
Yep.. Darvocet makes me feel out of it too. I was taking the Ultram but it was not doing any good for the pain so i called the doctor and he called in Darvocet.
I might just cut the Darvocet in half and try it that way. I wish he would have called in some Percacets.
I have a system for the medications. I have had back problems for at least 10 years so I have learned to manage the pain like this. Ultracet/Ultram I use for pain levels 1-4. When the pain is worse 5-7 2 Darvocet(side affects are bad, but the pain is worse) 7+ Percocet. It seems to work for me. I have tried all the other pain meds, but my body didn't agree with them. You do have to work it out by trial and error. Hate to say it but you need a stool softener with percocet or darvocet
