Ultram

Almost all fibro meds are addictive. I was on Cymbalta but it stopped working so I wanted to stop taking them. I weaned per my doctors and pharmacists recommendations....I went thru HELL getting off of them. It took me 6 months to get off them completely 😢

@A MyFibroTeam Member I agree. I was on Cymbalta for maybe two weeks at the lowest dose and of course had intolerable side effects so I thought since I hadn't been on it long I would just stop, wow that was horrible! I had withdrawals for several days that is right up there with Tramadol. Nasty stuff that your body immediately becomes dependent on. Or at least that was my experience.

I believe it is a Morphine antagonist.

It is an opiate just under the Percocet I am on them but I only use them when I really have to.

I was on tramadol which is made by the same company. I stopped taking it after years of being prescribed it. I was in withdrawal for several weeks, thought I was going to die. For me personally I wouldn't take either one. Effexor although not a pain pill has the same effect when you stop taking it. Be careful.
