I take tramadol now mostly for pain and i really like the ultram extended release. 300 mg in 24hrs was perfect. But my plan only covers generics. Anyone who uses this drug, or anyone who wants to try it (it can also help with depression) DO NOT get Par's generic. It is completely useless. Patriot Pharma... is the only company with a branded generic. I always go for branded generics because they are exactly the same as name brands. like greenstone is for xanax. greenstone is a subsidiary of (I cant remember) the company that invented and had the patents on xanax..same company, same exact dose. Just thought I'd let ya'll know. Par is usually very good, but not with this one.
