I personally felt the addiction was worse than vicodin
...at least for me. They gave me tramadol
because they wanted me off the vicodin
, and I had no problem with that in terms of addiction. I was able to control the dose combard to the the Ultram. Ultram is the same as Tramadol except that you only take one pill with Ultram...and you have to wait for results. While you are severe pain, that is a long time to wait especially since vicodin and tramadol works faster.
