Why do I prefer Ultram to a narcodic?

Why do I prefer Ultram to a narcodic?
For migraines, nothing beats fioricet, but for lower back I find 400 mg of Ultram to be much better than a few hydrocodones. How come hydrocodones don’t put me in la la land like everyone else? They are just ok.

There are losts of good answers, but the best answer:

Answer by vanhammer
Different people have different chemistry’s and therefore different medications act or work better for some than others. Hydrocodone will only put you in “la-la land”) if you don’t really need it for pain. If taking for recreation or to get a buzz but have no real pain, then they will give you that “high” people speak of. I live with severe chronic pain and none of my medications make me high or give me that “la-la land” feeling. Sometimes I wish they would to help me escape where I am!! If Ultram works for you, then stick with it. That’s what I started on over 10 years ago. I wish it still worked for me. Take care & feel better.

    Ultram’s act as an opioid. They hit the receptor in the brain faster in some people than others. All to do with your metabolism. Be careful though, they are addictive, as well as any drug. They are bad for your stomach also.

    Ultram works by decreasing the brain’s perception and response to pain. It also reduces the size or magnitude of the pain signal passed from one nerve to another. This medication is sometimes prescribed for investigational uses; diabetic neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia, fibromyalgia, restless legs syndrome, opiate withdrawal, migraine headache, obsessive-compulsive disorder, premature ejaculation.

    I agree with Dyno, because I know people who swear by Ultram, ,some people take it for anxiety and others take it for pain, some people take it for both
    However it does nothing for me, but I think as far as it being narcotic, I know its the only inflammatory that attaches to the brain like a narcotic that is why you have withdrawal symptoms when you quit taking it
    If it works for you then keep doing what your doing
