For Back Pain: I had a horrible experience with this medicine, took only 100 mg once in the morning for a severe low back pain and could hardly function. I became so nauseous, vomiting, disoriented, dizzy, my head was clouded, all I could do was try to find a place to lie down. I guess this is what they call high intolerance/allergy to certain medicines. If you know you have a sensitivity, be very careful. It helped my pain some but made my day absolutely miserable.

For Chronic Pain: I have a 35 year old whiplash, so the pain is fairly chronic, and settles in my neck but moves into shoulders and mid back. My pain seems to be skeletal and muscular. Tramadol is excellent at handling the pain. I want it to always work, so I never take it until after the pain has started. Sometimes I can go 2 days without taking a pill; other days, I have to take 2 pills in one day.

For Back Pain: I have both severe back pain and stomach pain, following 7 surgeries. Lortab was helpful, Codeine useless. Tramadol worked 1st pill, 1st time. It is excellent.

For Pain: I have severe kidney stones and back and joint pain. I took lortab for years. I wanted to get off the heavy duty pain meds. My Dr. suggested tramadol 50mg. I really had little hope it would help. I was shocked when it worked. I take 3 50mg tabs a day. It gave me my life back. My Dr. told me to try it and if it didn't work I could go back to the lortab. There's no need for that now. I only wish I discovered it sooner!

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!
