Is ultracet like percocet

Common Questions and Answers about Is ultracet like percocet


Avatar f tn Ultracet is fundamentally Tramadol or Ultram. The short answer is yes, it's addictive, no you won't get the same "buzz" you did from vicodin. It also happens to make me personally nauseous (I'm a norco addict). From a scientific standpoint, the reason it's less buzzy is that it's far more selective about the neuroreceptors it hits. Its active ingredient is a stripped-down synthetic piperidine-analog of codeine.
398893 tn?1201319307 Hey, Sorry you're in pain and having this problem. I've had problems like this many times. For the first time in years I am getting pain relief. I thnk a good time released med for long term pain is morphine. As far as I"m concerned morphine is the only way to go. There is a lot of Controlled or Timed release types of morphine. I take MS Contin and MSIR. MS contin is a 12 hour release type of morphine.
Avatar n tn Now I have to cope with being normal and ordinary and I liked being a little bit high so much better. I felt like I was a better listener and better minister when I was on the ultracet. My question is: WHen will I start to like myself again? The psychological stuff is the hardest. The physical pain is horrible too but not unbearable like the psychological/emotional pain. Thank you all so much for helping me see I am not alone. God bless all of you.
Avatar n tn They usually give you Demerol because the pain is so bad.....and then Percocet after that...Mistake is right......Don't take that.....I'd be on the phone with my Dr. right now telling him I want something stronger (Just remember to do what I can't....take as directed and discontinue when you feel better!
Avatar n tn Sounds like classic withdrawl my dear. Like Smiles says, it's a lot like a really bad flu. 2 months is certainly long enough to become chemically dependent, aka "addicted". Hang in there--you'll get through this, but it may take a little longer. Can you take some time off work? Perhaps the doctor who prescribed the pills can give you something else to ease the w/d. Give him/her a call.
374225 tn?1269902862 I want to go drug-free for 2 to 4 weeks and see if I start to feel like super man again. I'll probably be in the mother-of-mothers of pain but Percocet scares the hell out of me and all the more so having done a brief bit of reading here. Sounds like a scary little thing to become the servant of. Not me. I don't drink, don't smoke, I have zero addictions except those involving the opposite sex... my wife. :) So my questions are: 1.
Avatar n tn I am a music minister in an Evangelical Bible Church and have just had my second back surgery. My back feels great! I had unbearable pain for only a year (not much compared to some of the posters on here (7+ years of back pain, how do you do it?)). Throughout my year of pain, my doctor prescribed me hydrocodone (from 5's to eventually 10's) and tramadol 50mg (which I took with tylenol 50/500 - making it basically generic ultracet).
Avatar n tn that's when i became scared so i quit taking them yeaterday despite i am in so much pain, i have some ultracet are thay also addictive? and will i go through withdrawls from percocet? they were 5mg 1 -2 tablets ecry 4-6 hrs for pain i usually took 2.
Avatar n tn The effect is just like codine on me. After taking hydro, the ultracet does not do much, just like codine is not very strong compared to hydro. Why so much addiction to tramadol, is it the mild high? I admit to liking the hydro effect I would get with over 10mg. Will tramadol also give a mild high once I get used to being off hydro? As near as I can tell, tramadol is a plain and simple opiate, just a synthetic form of codine. How did it ever escape being a controlled substance?
199177 tn?1490502134 Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
Avatar n tn If you crush oxycontin and you get it all at once is it exactly like taking regular percocet? Because regular percocet is immediate release and so would the oxycontin be if you crushed it right? I am not looking to take more just to coninue taking what I am currently taking until I see my Dr. Or I could even go down to crushing just one 20 to taper from there. I will not take it whole I have come off of it before and it is hell. I also have no interest in snorting it etc.
Avatar n tn I've been clean for a year and very grateful. The problem is now when I find something I like its like I'm addicted to that. Like a certain food,downloading songs on the internet, or when I have any extra money I spend it on something "I have to have" but of course really don't. I used to be able to balance and control these things. Once you cross that imaginary line into addiction,does it apply to everything? Is is mental or physiological?
Avatar m tn I feel so weak, helpless and stupid. My hope is that I can kick this habit live like a normal middle class American. My hope is to enjoy life again without pills.
Avatar f tn i tried to send you a p/m but there is something wrong with the site...i will try again later there is something i would like to ask you.
Avatar n tn hey there hell bent , your post regarding maraposa is incorrect. i have been here the last 10 months and i know the preson you refer to . i am not going to explain the situation , but i will just say you are incorrect.. when we presume to much , we wind up with our foot in our mouth. peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!please don't take my post wrong. i am just trying to clear up a misunderstanding. before it grows legs.
252556 tn?1189759431 Pretty much all of the advice you have receieved here is very useful and helpful. You seem like a good person that got caught up just like the rest of us did. My name is Lisa, I was a three year Oxy Contin Abuser. My total intake on a daily basis was anywhere from 1000mgs a day t0 1200mgs a day. If I had enough money, then it was almost 1600mgs a day. This demon took everything from me including my own husband. I quit about three-4 months ago, and just recently replased.
Avatar f tn I know that I just said get rid of them but I should of read your post more carefully. First tell me what Ultracet is I would hate to advise you to chuck them all if you can't handle the detox. I was taking 5-8 percocet a day for 2-3 years and stopped in Nov for one month and then caved ( big mistake ).so I'm trying again. If I was taking 20 percocets for 6 years I don't think i could quit c/t unless I was at home.
Avatar n tn Ultracet, tramadol, and ultram all have the same drug in them. Therre are some doctors and readings that say they are not addictive. I however know better. I have seen others while I was in treatment who were there for addiction to that drug. It may not be his drug of choice may not be ultracet BUT is does "tickle" the same receptors in the brain as that of his drug of choice. We are all different but I would personally stay away from them.
Avatar f tn my question is, is it ok to take the darvocet? can I taper it slowly, like a few days at a time? How much opiate is in the darvocet compared to the vicodin? I want to be done with it all, but need sleep and this is hard to take. No other major symptoms happening, just the restlessness, insomnia, jittery thing...thanks for your advice...
Avatar m tn "cet" means ga guy said...not all drugs with tylenol say "cet" tho...lortab does not...percocet and lorcet do...but they all contain tylenol///ultracet is tam with tylenol....Ultram is just tramadol///tramadol is the generic name and Ultam is a brand name Trams do have both an AD quality causing increased seratonin/which is the same action as many popular ADs...zoloft, lexapro, prozac paxil, celexa...
557230 tn?1269433429 I used the medication that was prescribed for me and only for the reason it is supposed to be used. That is not addiction, right? I have been taking ultracet (tramadol and acetominophen) for the pain since early April, but again, I only take it for pain that motrin doesn't take care of and only in the prescribed dose. Thanks to this site, I know the dangers of this drug and have my defenses up and ready. Bandnmom was right.
222369 tn?1274478235 The guilt alone is driving me nuts. By the way...the ultracet did nothing for my ears or the headache. No need in taking the other 2 I guess. Any remarks are appreciated...
Avatar n tn they were 4 dollars each on the street. it is an insane way of life, i hated it , and myself for doing it. being clean is like cool breezz on a summer morning with a hit of morning glories in the air. true freedom/ from the nightmare of addiction which sucked the life right out of me. peace!!!!!!!!!!
1474625 tn?1371100679 I thought Tramadol was safe because I was told, as many others, that it is non-narcotic and non-addictive. However, many doctors now know, like all Tramadol users have known for years, that this drug is not safe and is one of the more addictive opiate agonists with a more complicated bonding structure and longer half-life along with SNRI properties, and this makes withdrawal from Tramadol longer than traditional opiates.
Avatar f tn I have been self medicating myself for god knows how many years. I just recently was taking ultracet, percocet and vicodin for over a year. At very low doses but doing it everyday. Today is my second day off. It ***** of course I feel very down and that my only window to being happy is gone. Now I have been diagnosed with depression and it never really felt like that's what it was to me. In talking to my doc (who doesn't know about my addiction) She diagnosed me with ADD.
Avatar f tn Your body is starting to withdraw from the medication.. Flu like symptoms while your legs feel kinda antsy... You can go to your Dr. with this information as he can help to ease the symptoms with medication.. If you just want to stop you will feel that way for about 5 day's 3 and 4 being the worst... Sleep is a big issue during this time... There are Natural products and warm baths that help a little to ease symptoms.. If you would like to know more let us know..

Avatar f tn ultam is tramodol same thing now there is ultracet which is tramodol ultram with tylonol
Avatar f tn Ultram is a lightweight when it comes to being able to control pain, but if your pain is not severe you might do OK with them. The problem with Ultram is that it attaches itself to the MU receptor in the brain, just like narcotics do, so even though Ultram is billed as "non-narcotic" it is still addictive.
Avatar n tn Ultram is like tramodol both can be very addictive. I know it has small amounts of opium and is basicly tramodol/ultracet. Its a narcotic and Being in my current state after taking tramodol for 4 years I would'nt suggest it.
