Had to go to my doctor yesterday due to a recurring headache. First time I've had a chance to tell him I've been off of tramadol
for nearly 3 months (he wanted to put me on them again for my headaches)..I told him "no" and
he repeated the mantra that tramadol
is not addictive. "perhaps not when used as directed, but I can tell you case after case of people i know who have become addicted to it and
go through worse withdrawls than many other opiates.
