tramadol experience
Try to get off of them before you get as bad as me. I've been taking 40-50 tramadol 50mg per day for ten years. I has completely destroyed my life and getting off of them is next to impossible, and I have no idea what to do. Trust me, if you're an addict, get off of them. They are highly addictive and the amount you take every day will get larger and larger. The withdrawal is severe. It's been compared to the withdrawal you get from heroin. Stop, or taper off ASAP.

Mobic vs Tramadol
Mobic is in the same class as ibuprophen, Aleve, etc. They are all NSAID (non steroid anti inflammatory drugs) and Tramadol is not a narcotic pain med but it does mimic some opiate pain meds and gives you pain relief similar to taking an opiate

I understand what you are saying and how you feel. I think my son cares as well as a few other people but they are just tired of hearing it. I know I am and I'll bet you are too. I don't have any magic words. I wish I did.
