Reviews for Acetaminophen/tramadol to treat Pain
Review by Anonymous:
acetaminophen/tramadol: I have fibromyalgia. I keep reading everyone's rave reviews on this medication but it really isn't helping me. The feeling of wellbeing people are talking about is not there. I am still in a great deal of pain everyday. I am 25 years old and I have severe fibromyalgia. I tried this medication because I work full time and go to school so I cannot be taking narcotics all day, its too hard on my body! Well hopefully everyone keeps their good reviews and I am just an exception to all the reviews!

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I have taken Ultracet for 10 years for pain. I have had surgery on both knees and I was in a bad car wreck that damaged the nerves in my neck. Ultracet takes the edge off the pain and makes it easier to cope with. Thanks to Ultracet I have led a relatively normal life. Without it I hurt so much that I don't want to do anything. I take four a day now and ten years ago I started with one. I take up to four a day based upon my activity level for the day.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): Was prescribed acetaminophen/tramadol for migraine pain after traditional migraine medicines actually worsened my pain...it really helped..a strange sort of relief though...can still feel the actual pounding but it just doesn't hurt after I take the tramadol! I am used to it now. Usually take 1 or 1/2 a pill 2 or 3 times a week...although was prescribed to take every 4 hours as needed. Oh also, I was having a problem with frequent diarrhea and that is gone now too! I get itchy skin when I go several days without them but not so much that it really bothers me.

acetaminophen/tramadol: I Have ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis. I work on my feet for 8-10 hours a day and without the tramadol I cannot work. I can't stand straight or walk let alone work. This medication takes away the pain and literally allows me to live. I don't know where I would be without it. But I have to say for some it might be addictive because of the feel good effects.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I've only been taking this medication for 2 days (back pain), it takes the edge off which allows me to function better. However, I'm nauseous, dizzy and lightheaded and I can't keep my eyes open and I'm not even tired. I'm thinking about not taking it because I can't drive like this with 2 young children in my car.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I've been taking Ultracet for about 4 months, usually 2-4 tablets daily. Not sure why my doctor prescribed it for long term use when product info says it is for short term usage. The pills generally help with pain, but they also give me a feeling of "well being", like a narcotic pain killer. Recently, I had a delay in getting my prescription filled and had to stop the pills abruptly. On the second day, I experienced withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, flu-like chills, clammy hands, restless leg syndrome and sleeplessness.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): Is very good for pain. I have ankle strains, elbow bursitis, shoulder bursitis, arthritis and joint pain and strained tendons in both knees. Constipation is the only side effect.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I have a badly herniated L5-S1 disc. While Vicodin is a very effective and safe medicine, there is just too much stigma and psychological dependence. I've been looking for a medication that's as good and found it. I really think Ultracet/Tramadol delivers as good of analgesia as Vicodin but without the stigma and abuse potential. I started on Ultram ER 200 and had some side effects, namely bad headaches, drowsiness, and "crashing" in the evening. My doctor switched me to the Ultracet 37.5/325 and it's great. The acetaminophen eliminates the headaches and the drowsiness and crashing are eliminated because I can take my 3rd or 4th dose around 6pm and it carries me to bedtime. I also take Gabapentin 300mg at bedtime.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I have been taking Ultracet four times a day for five years due to a herniated disc in my neck and it soothes away my pain for hours which allows me to continue working.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): Just want to say I've been taking Ultracet for about 8 years now. I have 3 herniated discs in my back. If it wasn't for Ultracet, I don't know what I would have done. It helps me to get up and do my daily routine. It helps me when I want to workout. It helps me cope with the everyday pain. I recommend Ultracet to anyone with pain. Remember though - it's not meant for everyone. Different people react differently to medications. So, ask your doctor if you can try it and see if it works for you. Good luck.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I've been taking ultracet for over a year now. My elbow was shattered and the radial head was destroyed. Because of the injury not healing properly my arm can't straighten out all the way. I also have terrible arthritis and tendonitis in that elbow which causes severe pain throughout the day. My doctors wanted to give me a healthy dose of percocet and oxycontin but I didn't want it. I was given ultracet and it has worked great ever since. I take anywhere from 4-8 in a day and can still function and do my job without being on a cloud.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I use ultracet (half a pill) for headaches and it works wonders. It's the only medicine that gets rid of my intense tension headaches. I would highly recommend this medication.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I was prescribed Ultracet after a car accident. I found the side effect of constipation a blessing in disguise. I rarely took the maximum dosage and realized it greatly helped my irritable bowel syndrome. I take one tablet per day and have little to no issues with loose bowels.

acetaminophen/tramadol: I have had severe knee pain since I broke my femur about 2 1/2 year ago. My doctor prescribed tramadol/acetaminophen and it worked really well. Since then I have been prescribed Tramadol 100mg, time release 3 times per day. On it's own tramadol does not work as well for me. Clearly the Tramacet 3.27 is better for my joint pain.
Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): I suffer from chronic ankle sprains, which I will be undergoing surgery to correct and after my most recent sprain that left me with 5 torn ligaments. My doctor put me on ultracet and it has worked wonders. I am able to function during the day and it controls the pain well enough for me to get a good nights sleep.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): Both of my feet need to be fused because of a disabilty that I have. I have extreme pain and can not walk. The days that I could not walk ultracet helped me walk. No medicine works for me, but ultracet! It is the best!! Would recommend it to everyone with extreme pain.

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol): worked extremely well for back pain and arthritis. at least it took most of the pain away and let me sleep at night. not recommended while driving a car or operate a machine.
