My ortho and my rheumy both tell me that Tramadol is not addictive, but I have read some accounts on the web that say it "can be" addictive. It isn't an opoid, correct? But it works like an opoid...??? Any info would be appreciated. I just started taking it, but I've only taken one 50 mg pill yesterday and the day before. I have to say that it helped me a lot. It didn't take away all the pain, but it made it SO much better. Guess I didn't realize how much pain I have been in. I am trying to weigh the pros and cons of this medication. It would be wonderful to take the edge off my pain everyday.... Thanks for your help! V
P.S. Both my ortho and my rheumy want me to take a 50 mg tablet three times a day.
