I suffer from scoliosis and the doc said I looked like a junkie because I came in with old jeans and a hoodie. He checked my x-rays and agreed but wanted to try thr tramadol first. This shit not only is bunk but has withdrawelsSIC. I'm angry, hurting and I cant find any site that agrees on its opiod/opiate mechanicism. I dont know i'm in severe pain and this fucking doc is talking about the way I dress...how kmany junkies have health insurence fuck it if any one has a first han knowledge get back

Hhmmm, it's just an anti-inflammatory. I don't see how it should have narcotic style withdrawal symptoms.

I've had the same experience with doctors making assumptions on account of appearance/dress...perhaps a couple tattoos?

If this doctor is one who treats you regularly for your scoliosis, you should feel comfortable demanding a different perscription.

Tramadol doen't do anything for me, either. It's been prescribed to me a couple/three times. It probably has all kinds of negative side effects too. Can people get their money back in these situations?
