For Anxiety: I've tried over 13 medications for anxiety and none have worked not even the popular benzodiazepines. I tried 100mg of Tramadol and I felt the weight lifted from me. I felt like I could breath easier and relaxed. It's the only thing that has worked. I'm looking for a doctor now who has experience with long term use or perhaps a doctor that can recommend a medication knowing that Tramadol works for me.

Ultram ER (tramadol) for Chronic Pain: Could not stay on Norco long term. Tried the IR, Tramadol but it did nothing. The Tramadol ER was very very different and works wonderfully. I rarely experience head pain over a 3-4 pain scale. I take this daily, every morning 100mg.

For Pain: Very mild pain relief. Can't believe it's a Class 3 medicine. The relief is not the same as other pain relievers. Sometimes it does nothing to relieve pain. However, each person reacts differently to pain relievers. It seems I have a high tolerance level.

For Restless Legs Syndrome: I have had restless leg for quite a few years and was on on Oxycodone for pain and noticed it helped the restless leg at night, but a friend had me try tramadol and worked well, told my doctor and now I take it at night 100 to 150 mg.

For Pain: I have been prescribed this medication a couple of different times. Each time I experienced headache, severe nausea and lightheadedness each time I took a dose. Totally not worth it to me

For Pain: The first time I took it, 50mg, it made me light headed, so I no longer used it until I had shoulder surgery. I would take one before bed time and did real well on it. No side affects, helped me sleep better, too!

For Depression: I have been on EVERY antidepressant over 20 years. I was prescribed Tramadol for a toothache. Not much help on the pain, but within a hour, I felt hope, energy, and have been on the same 200mg for 4 years without any problems!!!

For Pain: Was given tramadol for extreme pain from kidney stone that would pass. Couldn't get into specialist for a week. Very thankful it really helped with the pain Side effects for me sleeplessness, mild itching on face. Only made me tired and dizzy for the first hour or so.

For Pain: I was diagnosed with tendonitis and arthritis in the neck and was prescribed tramadol. It has really worked for me. I mostly take it at night, 1 tablet, to get some relief and some sleep for a few hours without pain. I used to take Percocet when I had a herniated disc in my back and although I got some relief, I was severely constipated, which I never am because I have colitis. After 2 bottles of stool softeners, a bottle of Metamucil, I was finally able to go. I got an intestinal infection because I couldn't go and I swore I'd never take Percocet again. Tramadol is strong and can have side effects such as stomach cramps and nausea but only if taken on an empty stomach. It has to be taken with food to avoid the side effects.

For Fibromyalgia: I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia six years ago - have tried everything (and I mean EVERYTHING, from Amitriptyline to Zoloft & all combinations!) Nothing works as well as Ultram, and nothing else comes close (for me) with as little side effects. Not sure why docs don't want to prescribe this sometimes? I've read posts about the "addictive" factor. Well, I took Vicodin daily for years and that isn't any better! I took Vicodin with various antidepressants (not much help there) Tramadol is safer than Vicodin - easier on your organs. QUALITY OF LIFE matters, and this medicine takes the edge off of pains, aches, depression AND anxiety (including social anxiety). I take 50mg twice a day & feel almost normal - happy, I laugh more, do more. Grateful for this med!

For Back Pain: 2002 fell injured my lower back. Tried a bunch of different meds, and just made me gaga and same pain. Then after a plea to my dr. He wanted to do something different. We tried 2, tramadol & Robaxin. To my surprise no back pain and no more gaga.

For Restless Legs Syndrome: I've suffered restless legs syndrome since 2nd grade. It is a miserable affliction. I am now 51 and I experience it in my legs, arms and back as restlessness and pain starting after 7pm. Initially was on ropinirole, pramipexole for a few years. Those pills made me feel sleepy until 3 am at which time I'd wake up. A sleep specialist now has me on 1200mg of gabapentin and 50mg tramadol. For me, this combination works great. It relieves 100% of the restlessness and 90% of the pain and other uncomfortable sensations. I've been able to fall asleep with this medicine combination. Glad it's available!

For Back Pain: I have fibromyalgia and severe arthritis in my back. Woke up in so much pain today and I don't have time for that because I have to attend a Christmas Party. I took 600 mg of Motrin and an Ultram. Had no idea Ultram could help with back! I had a 12 on a scale of 1-10 for pain. Thank you makers of Ultram - I can go to my husband's Christmas Party now!

For Depression: I have run through the entire wringer on SSRI's, an MAOI, and an SNRI. Lexapro in combination with low dose tramadol has been the most effective duo for me. Low dose 100mg once daily tramadol, with intermittent 'breaks' (from acclimation to the medicine) has worked well for me over the past 5-6 years in mood stability, energy, motivation, and concentration with no euphoric effects. All of these are very important in my line of work. I do think that an XR formulation might be more useful in stabilizing plasma concentrations and perhaps mitigate some issues with medicine resistance and tendencies to take higher doses (not a good idea). At any rate, use should be monitored.

For Back Pain: I've been taking this for over six months, and I notice nothing. No results when I don't take it, no results when I do. It's like a placebo... only worse, because a placebo at least gives you the emotional result of taking something.

For Depression: After hurting my back, hips and developing sciatica from lifting people in hospitals/nursing homes/rehab/homecare, I was given Ultram for the excruciating pain. It worked wonderfully without the dopiness associated with narcotics. I had also suffered from depression since I was a child and had been through numerous meds that didn't work, or made my life even worse. Tramadol is the only med that I have taken that has successfully treated both my chronic pain as well as my depression, allowing the sun to shine in my life.

For Restless Legs Syndrome: I tried everything to stop this rls and nothing worked. I would be up all night moving my legs up and down and then it started moving to my torso and I could not take it no more being up. I was finally given tramadol for my back issues but found it worked to quiet my rls. I only get 50 mg and I live normally now with it. I can't tell you of the sleepless nights I have had without it. I only take one in the morning and one in the evening. It lasts for me but sometimes it doesn't for real long periods of time. I would rather take tramadol then gabenton that is horrible! I also have nerve damage from my diabetes and it also relieves that pain needles too. Thank god for this to regain my life back.

For Restless Legs Syndrome: I have had restless legs syndrome for over a decade varying from mild, moderate to quite severe at times. After being prescribed Prozac I found that it helped the depression but made the restless legs syndrome worse. After falling and cracking my ribs I was prescribed 100mg Tramadol twice daily. It was excellent for pain relief, RLS completely disappeared and I got a good night's sleep. I stopped the Tramadol after 2 weeks and experienced flu like withdrawal symptoms and RLS returned with a vengeance. Internet info is that Prozac can affect restless legs syndrome and taken with Tramadol can cause serotonin syndrome. I contacted doctor and requested lower dose Tramadol to wean myself off. I am still taking one 50mg at 4pm, any later and the RLS kicks in and is harder to control.
