Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol vs percocet

ultracet

Avatar n tn As someone else on here said, I use Ultram (tramadol) when I don't have percocet to avoid the withdrawal. When I take the Ultram, I won't have any withdrawal at all but if I wouldn't have either one, I would go right into opiate withdrawal. The good part of the tramadol though is I don't crave them the way I want the Percocets. I'm going to try my best to keep cutting back the Ultram to wean myself off all of these meds... I have been on pain meds for 10 years from an auto accident.
Avatar n tn Hi I've been suffering from severe eye pain and my pain control is not working well enough. I'm currently on Dihydrocodeine 30 mg 6 times daily. And I'm wondering if tramadol is stronger, the information I've found on this drug conflicts and I'm just wondering if you could tell me if tramadol would be stronger than the drug i'm currently using and wether it is adictive. And what type of drug is it, the only type of drug which helps my pain are narcotics nothing else does anything.
1529480 tn?1291880734 Percocet only goes to 10 mg but oxycodone or oxycontin go up a good some higher and have an extended realise version I've also heard good things about tramadol and nucynta as well as dilauded but if percocet works for you maybe switch to oxycodone or oxycontin because your body works better with it the problem chronic pain ppl run into is doctors thinking they are drug seeking but in reality we only want pain relief with little or no side effects
403399 tn?1201836695 They don't give me the same high as HC or Vicodin, but I have heard they are still addictive. Any advice?
Avatar f tn He thinks its better to be on Tramadol vs. vicodent. The orthropeadic surgeon says I am NOT to get any steriod or any other injections into the shoulder, as pain is originating from my neck. Its really impossible to sleep on my back or left side, which leaves the right side and I continually wake up and feel like a knife is stuck between my chest and shoulder blades. I really don't know where to go from here. I do see the pain magagement doc next week, but that really doesn't give me answers.
5957912 tn?1379940572 But it may depend on the meeting type you are at (open vs closed, beginners vs Step Meeting etc.) If in doubt, go up to the chairperson and ask about the group's feelings about sharing if you are using. in the early stages, its best to listen, and to just put your hand up to say you are a newcomer, you are struggling, and that you are an addict, so you can hear yourself say that out loud. Good luck to you. Don't ever let one person's comment stop you from getting your recovery underway.
Avatar m tn I am addicted to tramadol and have tried to quit ct and taper. I have been addicted to percocet and vicodin and was able to CT with out problems. I can not CT the tramadol, I have tried but couldn't afford the extreme physcial illnes/symptoms longer than the 6 days. Like you, I have as child and it doesn't lend itself to laying in the bed for weeks. Your best bet is a taper. I went down to 2 a day and stayed there for a long time. I fell off when my weight went up.
Avatar f tn Hi Jujubean48, When you have been on the same Medication for such a long period of time, many times you build up a tolerance to your medications. That's what happened to me after I was on Norco (Hydrocodone) 7.5 for 7 years. After that length of time they just quit working on me! :( My PM Doctor switched me to Percocet 10/325's for my BT (Breakthrough) Meds along with giving me a Long-Acting Med and that took care of the problem. Hopefully, the Ultram will give you some relief.
Avatar f tn Dx'd eight years ago with ankylosing spondylitis (severe back pain) and Rx'd Indocin and Tramadol. Felt fine on Indocin alone, no side effects to this day...but took Tramadol for a headache seven years ago and got the Rx and have been on it ever since.] Hi. Last week I started my tapering off of Tramadol. I was taking 200mg/day for the past seven years. I stopped taking one full 50mg pill every late afternoon about six days ago, so I'm now just doing two pills in the a.m.
Avatar n tn I have been on Percocet for 4 months for a herniated disk. I was taking half a day, then one a day, then up to 6 a day. Then I started having awful side effects. My back pain got worse, my tongue was swelling some, and had stomach pain too. Then I had my lumbar injection and the pain got worse. I am scared this is an allergic reaction. I had my lumbar steroid injection, and the pain got worse, so my Dr prescribed Tylenol 4.
413886 tn?1203610951 After a car accident 4 years ago I went through percocet wd's could turkey. Worst 2 weeks of my life! Unfortunately I was put on hydro's about a year ago due to deteriorating discs and severe tendonitis/arthritis in the wrists from playing music. I am currently on a taper program where I was taking 10+ Norco's per day and now I am down to 5-7.5's per day. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
149087 tn?1258457420 Myself, I was injured while in basic training about 6 yrs ago. I currently take 10/325 mg percocet 4x daily and without it I have duffficulty walking. I went through spinal injections of steroids and cortizone which actualy caused more damage then anything. Yes, soma does sometimes make me a zombie. What I did that helps is cut the soma into 1/4 and use as needed depending on what kind of alertness is needed.
Avatar m tn It has to depend on the person and their reaction to it. Tramadol is actually much easier to come off of then Percocet or Oxycodone. You can't compare Tramadol to either of the medication that he's been taking. It's much weaker than both of them. Doctors surprisingly, here in Cali, wright up Tramadol prescriptions to help get off of narcotics, because Tramadol isn't a controlled substance.
Avatar n tn I have been on percocet 10/325 and norcos 10/325 over 5 years for a back injury. I have tried 3 times in 5 years to quit. I was so close two of the times but ended up rationalizing why I needed to take them again which took me back to the begining. I was taking/have been taking 14-16 percs a day and ran out two weeks before my refill date. Luckily I had about 50 norcos left and now Im ready to be done.

Avatar f tn In other words, let's say you were taking 10mg oxycodone in short acting form (percocet) three times a day, you would be taking a total of 30mg of oxycodone. However, if you are prescribed 10 mg oxycontin (long acting version of oxycodone minus the acetaminophen that is in percocet) every 12 hours, you would only be taking a total of 20mg of the narcotic a day.
