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 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 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!

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.
