Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board


Thanks everyone for responding. You all just validated my feelings towards tramadol. I've read that Tramadol is harder to come off of then vicodin??? Is this true, or only for some? Addiction runs strong in my family and this is why i am asking this.
Hi 10sox,
Difficulty in Withdrawing from opoids is in proportion to their potency (Normally). Vicodin (Hydrocodone & acetaminophen) is more potent as an
opoid anlgesic than Tramadol (Ultram), thus it is more physically addicting.
Psychological addiction can be subjective (individual), or variable. It can
be unpredictable.
So physical addiction to Vic. is more severe than Ultram addiction. But
psych. addiction can vary considerably.

Take care

PS: it also depends on the length of addiction and amount taken, as well as
many other factors.
I have been on tramadol for a few years now along with vicodin and percs all at different times. The tramadol doesnt even help my pain but I take anywhere fom 15 to 30 a day. I just stopped the percs a few days ago and I am still taking ultram. Will suboxone help with this addiction to? I am scared I will never come off of them.
