Common Questions and Answers about Ultracet vs hydrocodone

ultracet

They don't give me the same high as HC or Vicodin, but I have heard they are still addictive. Any advice?
I have a degree in psychology and know alot about drugs from the classes I took in school and my street abuse for over 17 years. Tramadol, better known as Ultram or Ultracet (Ultracet has acetominophen in it whereas Ultram does not) is a relatively new pain killer. The funny thing is techincally it is not classified as an opiate drug, but it works on your opiate brain receptors.
gave perscribed me Hydrocodone as well as the Hydrocodone that i was already getting from my Neurologist. I started using them more often (vs. taking them "as needed") and I realized that I couldnt function on a daily basis if I didnt have them. This past Christmas (December '06) I somehow managed to go through 8 bottles of Hydrocodone (qty. 20 - 10/325) in less than 3 weeks.

Hi. Of course I am here because I was researching how to quit taking hydrocodone. It all started innocently...doesn't it always? I need support. I think I can do the taper. It is the MENTAL that is the problem. I THINK I need more. I think it calms my nerves. I think it makes my life better. It doesn't. I don't know about the physical withdraws. I have read about them and yes that scares me since I can not take off work or quit life to lay in bed and suffer.
I have never heard of darkening around the eyes being caused by hydrocodone and Tylenol (Vicodin) but I know that taking a narcotic can disturb your normal sleep stages which may make you look tired and have the dark circles and red eyes. To be on the safe side, have another person look at your eyes closely and also check under your tongue.
I have been addicted to hydrocodone on and off for the past three years. (100 mg) per day. I have recently went through detox, and am wondering how long it will take before the strong cravings stop. I know I need a plan of recovery, and am working on that right now. Can anyone suggest things to do to help me get through this?
my experence with ultram and ultracet is that it was a good drug to take when i ran out of vikes or percs, ulrram took away the with drawls from the percs and vikes. i was told they were non narcotic. the one thing good about them for me was i never got any kind of buzz or high from them like i did from vike's. so they were easier to get off of for me.
i have used ultram and ultracet, the only thing i found it good for was withdrawls from vikes and perc's. i really don't like the way ultram makes me feel. so i never got hooked on it. thanks for your input.
More recently, I decided to try poppy tea. Not bad, when you can't acquire hydrocodone and want to avoid the withdrawals. That is, until your dear wife says, honey, you look a a bit grayish, do you feel ok? Well, no... I better get away from this stuff... but I would like to avoid withdrawals. In steps Mr. TRAMADOL.. I'm a safe and easy way to come clean with no ill effects. Why heck, I'm not even a controlled substance. You can have me in only two days if you order online.
