Tramadol is weak and not addictive it is pretty much a placebo. I had no change in my pain. Goodies helped much better except the Caffeine in Goodies are more addictive.
September 12, 2015
Scott I dont know where you are getting your information from, but please be aware making such wrexkless claims. Tramadol is a highly addictive drug with extreme withdrawal symptoms that can last for over 3 weeks. It is an extremely strong synthetic opiate that is commonly and easily abused due to its relaxing and euphoric symptons. It has recently been changed to a controlled drug in the UK due to the problems it is causing people throughout the UK, Drs have been instructed to try and move their patients towards coming off Tramadol and on to alternative pain relief. I have worked in substance misuse for many years and I am qualified to speak on this matter both in a professional and personal experience capacity. If you want to check the validity of my statements simply type "tramadol addiction' in to Google and you will be presented with literally thousands of threads containing posts from people suffering serious problems battling with Tramadol addiction. The reason I feel compelled to reply to your comment is because it is both misleading, inaccurate and dangerous advice. I don't dispute that this may have been your experience, but your experience must be 1 in a million. Tramadol is highly addictive and dangerois drug and it is definitely not a placebo.
