Discussions that mention morphine

Addiction & Recovery board


Yesterday I went to the doctor for a nasty ear infection. This was very painful. The doctor gave me antibiotic eardrops and some stuff called ultracet. I was assured by my doctor and the pharmacist (two of them mind you) that this is a non-narcotic, non addictive. I started to become suspicious yesterday after I took two of them and yes the pain went away but guess what? I started to feel that I had taken vicodin. I called the pharmacist again and he assured me that this medication is non opiate and non narcotic and non addictive.

Well this morning I woke up and felt that "good ole fashion opiate hangover" I searched the internet and found a site that says that ultracet is a "synthetic codeine with a morphine like derivative. "

I would have had 10 days today off of vikes now I feel like I am starting all over again. I have to go to work and I have an opiate hangover and probably will go through some more wd's again. I have thrown out the other two ultracets that I had left. This sucks and I am really depressed right now. I worked hard to stay off of vikes and now I feel like crap.
