"Works very well when I use it to prevent sensation of stiffness/pain in the back when playing tennis. Effect may not last for the full 8 hours (more like 5 to 6 hours). Generally use it in conjunction with Naproxen and Acetaminophen. Do not use it other times even though I experience effects of degenerative disc disease in the lumbar region chronically."

"I have been taking tramadol for 20 years 4mg pills a day. Recently I have been trying to take myself off of this drug. I'm experiencing cold like symptom's, sweating, can't sleep at night, restless leg. My attitude is in the dump. This is only my 3rd day. I'm trying to take one pill a day and that is at night because I cannot deal with laying in the bed not sleeping and the restless leg pain. I'm hoping and praying that God will give me the strength to get through this bad experience."

"1. Effectiveness time shortened after each pill. 2. Withdrawal effects after effectiveness caused desire to immediately take another. 3. Addiction seems highly likely after use for more than a few days."

Ultram (tramadol): "I told my physician that I would no longer take Percocet for my chronic back pain. He suggested I try tramadol and assured me it is not a narcotic. I have been talking the tramadol now for a year and although it is no miracle drug it has managed my pain immensely. I can finally sleep at night and function normally. One down side to the drug for me is if I run out and the withdraw starts it is nasty. Be careful you stop the drug abruptly. Good health to all. Rob"

"It literally does nothing. I've even take 200mg at a time. Nothing. You're better off taking Advil. I have no idea why this is even prescribed to people. Maybe its a placebo drug? It doesn't help at all."

"I had rods put in my back about 7 years ago due to DDD. My doctor put me on several different narcotics but none seemed to work. Went to my regular doctor and she prescribed me tramadol HCL (Ultram) 50 mg just one day on it the pain really just went away and my mood changed for the better. Great pain reliever and improves your mood.I take 50 mg every 6 hours."

"My doctor switched me to Tramadol after Tylenol 3 started losing effectiveness. I was on Ty 3 for years, after four lumbar surgeries, two fusions, continued pain... taking 3-4, 50 mg. Tramadol/day, trying to keep it at three. Not pain free, but at least bearable. Unless/until it wears off. I have joint pain, my elbows hurt. OW. Pretty sure it's caused by the drug, but right now, dealing with it."

"If your back pain is more nerve based this can really help. Even more than very strong pain killers. It works better as it has properties that work on the nerves. Also, I have not had to up the dose in 4 years."

"I was prescribed this medication (50 mg x 2 before bedtime) after I was in a bad car accident. The car accident cause two herniated discs that were pressing on a nerve root. I took this medication and absolutely could not sleep. My heart was racing as were my thoughts. Also it caused me to sweat a lot. It was absolutely terrible. I was only able to get 2-4 hoursof sleep a night. I will never take this prescription again."

"This was the best drug I had found for my lower back, stress related pain. But my doctor sent me to an orthopedic doctor, which I thought was for my lower leg numbness. Now she wants me to take Mobic 15mg 2 times a day instead. I had tried Mobic before with no improvement in pain. I am VERY frustrated with my doctor and may find another one."

"Barely takes the edge off pain. Usually have to take 2 and a Soma to help. I also have Crohns and COPD. I've tried many meds but due to all medical problems, nothing I'm allowed to take works. Used to have an extremely high tolerance for pain but with chronic pain from so many medical issues its worn me down. Just want to be pain free one day. Seriously, just one day."

"Tramadol works great for my back pain doing the day when I'm working. It has worked great for me for over 10yrs and it keeps my stress levels down. Things that I normally would let bother me don't bother me."

"I have been take tramadol, for back pain and it also works for anxiety, but doctors seem to believe it's not for anxiety or depression. Because of the opiate that's in it, but it works 10 times better than any anti anxiety pill I have taken."
