Did nothing for my pain from fibromyalgia & I have chronic pain. Gave me the most intense headaches lasting all day & night! And a rash on my arms where you bend your arms. Other areas too.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

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 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.

Does not work for me at all. If I increase dosage it just makes me feel weird and lightheaded and a little bit dizzy.

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!

My doctor placed me on this medication due to severe chest pain, from the moment I took this medication I've had all the Severe side effects you could have with tramadol. All and all this medication didn't work wonders for me.

Ultram (tramadol): I received this medication through my PCP for horrendous arthritis pain. This medicine is a joke! Like taking baby aspirin!

I was prescribed tramadol for a torn rotator cuff and bursal tear in my right shoulder and another tear in my left. I can say it helps a little with nerve pain and it did help my mood if I was doing absolutely nothing at all. In short this medication was not worth the trip to the doctor for my circumstance. Happy that it does work for many people. I was also given Ultram extended release at another time which made me sick and gave me insomnia. I was crying in pain at the doctor's office door before they opened with no sleep and ready to puke. This was my worst experience with any medication in my life.

Just recently prescribed Tramadol 50 mg and it has been the miracle medicine for my osteoarthritis pain. The very first dose & I was able to move without any issues. I am only 42 yrs old and fear being crippled due to this nasty disease. I am hoping this medicine will continue to work for me. Hydrocodone 5-325 just wasn't cutting it for me anymore, needed something stronger as the pain was getting truly unbearable. I would recommend others to try it. I've read a lot of reviews and have seen mixed reviews but for the most part others are happy with the results like myself.

My shrink put me on this in 2010. I was overdue for a hip replacement, and it showed when I hobbled into his office! Combined with ketoprofen 75 mg (best NSAID out there for pain) 100 mgs twice daily got me through for 5 months till surgery. Excellent synergistic effect. Still take it with the NSAID since my spine is arthritic, and my knee is ready for replacement now. Problem is my family doc no longer prescribes NSAIDs because of heart and kidney concerns! He thinks 3 tramadol daily is sufficient!

Ive taken tramadol for 7yrs 50mg once to three times a day. Sometimes go days without it. I find within 20 mins of taking it my pain is gone. It does not give me a headache, does not make me loopy or sleepy or even depressed. Not sure why its classified as a strong pain pill, it just makes joint paint go away and you can function normal.

I took tramadol after carpal tunnel surgery. I usually get sick from other medications. I tried this & got severe headache. Took it only at night the next day & woke up with the pounding in my head. Didn't take it at all the next day & felt fine. Wish it had worked for me.
