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 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 Depression: SAVED MY LIFE!!! I was struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD from a particularly rough teenhood, and motivation for years. I could never get out of bed in the morning, or get anything started (especially completing something). I also used to get traumatic night terrors. Tramadol changed everything. Every day I leap out of bed at 6am, bounding with energy and motivation. I got my dream job, worked so well that I got promoted to a Senior position within 2 months of starting, and was able to earn enough to move into an even bigger house than what I used to live in. Also have had zero negative side effects! No messing with weight, libido, and no "crashing" or depressive lows when coming off it. 11/10 for treating depression!

Ultram (tramadol) for Back Pain: I've been on tramidol for 5 years and I have 3 crushed vertebra' s and it works great when I comes to relaxing me enough to get out and do things I normally can't do without them....

For Chronic Pain: I'm so thankful for tramadol. It takes away my chronic low back, jaw and stomach pain completely away and I'm able to finally live a normal and active pain free life again. It also helps with my depression and anxiety which is very much appreciated added bonus. I just take 50 mg twice a day and works great. I'm very happy with this medication.

For Anxiety: I'm 20 and have a combination of anxiety, mild depression, and TMJ pain. For anxiety I tried Zoloft, Xanax, Klonopin, etc. Zoloft did nothing, and while the others worked, I couldn't use them long term. Tramadol is the miracle, road-runner medication. It covers all of my conditions and covers them great. It eases my jaw pain for 4-5 hrs and my mood/anxiety is pretty much nonexistant. I also have 0 side effects and don't find it addictive. Tramadol gave me my life back and will continue to! 10 star medication!

For Pain: For relieving pain especially after a surgery like TKR, I found Tramadol very useful. However, as this medicine causes severe constipation, you should be careful in using it continuously. I am taking 50 mg only at nights, and trying to control pain with an NSAID during day time.

For Anxiety: All I have to say about Tramadol is WOW. I'm 19 and have had mild depression associated with anxiety, as well as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). I've tried Zoloft and Lexapro for my depression/anxiety, and also have used Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin) in the past. The antidepressants did nothing, and in fact made my symptoms worse. Although Xanax and Klonopin helped, they tended to make my moods shift up and down. Tramadol works AMAZINGLY for ALL of the above conditions! I take 50-100 mg and my mood is lifted, I feel steadily relaxed all day, focused, motivated. My underarm sweating is completely gone, and I feel like I'm getting my life back. it also works great for moderate pain. No side effects! It's a miracle medicine.

For Depression: Have taken tramadol in the past. It literally saved my life when I was going through severe depression while slowly recovering from a traumatic injury. My doctor at the time put me on a light dose of tramadol to help with my somber mood. I was alive again. Nowadays, its virtually impossible to get any doctor to prescribe this. I've tried multiple anti-depressants over the last several years and they do nothing for me. Tramadol's the best--for me at least.

For Restless Legs Syndrome: I've been suffering with restless leg syndrome for years and the older I get the worse the symptoms are. My doctor prescribed tramadol when I hurt my back and discovered that my legs stopped hurting completely for the first time in years! I have tried endless medications and the only thing I got were terrible side effects and no leg relief. I have absolutely no side effects with tramadol and I can sleep pain free all night!

For Chronic Pain: I have chronic pain due to trauma injuries to my shoulder and elbow (implant). I also have moderate - severe back pain due to spondylothesis. I have had these problems for 5 to 10 years. I was taking oxycodone 15 mg every 4 to 6 hours and that managed my pain pretty well, reducing it from an 8/10 down to 0/10 to 3/10 depending on whether I took the medication before the pain got too intense. I was then switched to Tramadol 50 for a holiday from the opioid. The Tramadol did not provide ANY pain relief. I did experience the brain zaps that can be common with SNRI medication and that was after only 11 days (they become more frequent and intense with increased dose and period). I discontinued Tramadol after 13 days.

For Anxiety: I recently was diagnosed with BPD. I have suffered from depression, fear of abandonment, and suicidal idiologies since I was a teenager. Last October I had a total left knee replacement. The surgeon put me on tramadol up to 8 a day. I never took that many but I did notice a change in my mood and depression. While not a panacea, tramadol (50mg) 2x a day has made a significant improvement in my symptoms especially since I am going through a breakup with my significant other.

Ultram (tramadol) for Back Pain: Around the same time this year I have had a baby and shoulder surgery for osteoarthritis. Hence, I suffered from both shoulder pain AND post-partum depression. Percocet didn't stop the pain and Zoloft made me feel worse. My doctor prescribed Ultram and it is now my miracle pill! It helps with both issues. It allows me to be a normal functioning mom. I love how it helps my mood and physical pain!

For Pain: I have been taking tramadol for four years, it works for me! Sometimes I want to get off tramadol, not because it doesn't work, but because I don't want to have a medicine at all. On the other hand I came to the conclusion I need to support my family; and tramadol does not upset my stomach, I was diagnosed with sciatica, a tear and tendonitis, very painful. Tramadol doesn't take away completely my pain, but I can work without side effects for me. I was on Mobic, it is good, but unfortunately it affects my stomach, it makes me constipated. So I am going to stay with one medication until there is a better one, so far tramadol is the winner for me!
