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.

GenRx Tramadol (tramadol): Had an extremely painful foot condition, which turned out to be gout. The tramadol helped relieve the extreme pain.

Tramadol is such a good medicine for all kind of pains even I can't explain in my words. I was suffering Backache problem last three years but there is no effect by any medicine. Even I consult 5-6 doctors then one my father's friend told me start to take tramadol. Believe me within one year now I am absolutely fine.

Used in conjunction with naproxen for arthritis pain, 300 mg per day in 3 increments, usually skip mid day dose if pain is mild.

I am prescribed this for chronic neck/shoulder pain. My doctor gave me this instead of a straight narcotic, Tramadol 50mg tabs 2 or as needed 3 x a day. I also take Lexapro 25mg 1xday. Just using Lexapro erased my depression symptoms, after starting tramadol. I find I am hugely motivated at work, I have a fairly physical job and it can be draining but with this not only is the pain controlled my mood is "Mr. work". It really makes me more productive and happy able to get up in the morning without the hangover of Percocet. Much more alert and able to tackle heavy work that guys 15 years younger whine about. Highly recommended.

Review by Smilezjp (taken for 1 to 6 months):

I have been taking tramadol for about 4 months. A few months ago I was diagnosed with Connective Tissue Disorder. I was given 800mg of Ibuprofen and 50mg of Tramadol. I was to take 1 pill every 6 hours. Most of the time I would take it once a day. I have been off tramadol for about 3 days, and the worst part is restless legs syndrome. Right now I am taking NyQuil so I can get some sleep. If it wasn't for the restless legs syndrome, the withdrawal process wouldn't be a problem. I have a doctors appointment in a few days, so I should be okay once I am back on my medicines.

I've been taking tramadol for 6 years to help with my neuropathy. It does work great for me, but the trick is you have to take it before the pain gets really bad. I found in MY experience that it does not work well for tooth aches, migraines or any other acute pain.

I suffer from atypical trigeminal neuralgia after a wisdom tooth removal. I have been on the same dose of tramadol and tapentadol for 2 years with no development of tolerance and limited gastrointestinal side effects. Excellent regimen from an excellent doctor.

More powerful than I thought... dr prescribed this to treat scoliosis pain in a 'non narcotic way'. It helped my back pain greatly. I was also in a great mood in the beginning. I thought it was wonderful (despite a constant minor headache)! As the months went on, I no longer had that wonderful feeling and needed the tramadol to function. NEVER went over prescribed dose (50 mg 3 times per day). When I had to take it at 7:30 am so I could get out of bed at 8:00, I knew it was a problem. Seems you can become dependent without really knowing it. BAD withdrawals that lasted over a month (I was on it 11 months).

Tramadol is amazing when it comes to what its prescribed to do which is relieve pain. I have an ulcer on the back of my tongue and tonsillitis. The ulcer is rubbing against both my throat and my tonsils causing inflammation and severe pain when I try to talk, eat or drink. Which is where the positive 7 out of 10 comes from. However I took three off of the total possible 10 because of side effects. I'm drowsy and doze off in the middle of conversations and/or working. I'm currently fighting to keep my eyes open at the computer and its almost ten in the morning. I am taking an average 50mg Dosage. I will probably cut in half just to save my drowsiness from happening or take it only before bed.

I have to take more than the normal dosage for any pain to be relieved. I do not take it every day though. However, you notice when the tramadol is leaving your system when you take an extra pill or two because the pain will come back threefold. Also, I have no clue why, but I have trouble peeing after taking tramadol no matter what the dose, it's weird.

Ultram (tramadol): I was prescribed tramadol for chronic lower back pain, it makes me drowsy but the pain is still there. I can't really describe it, it's like a sensation of knowing the pain is there but not letting it affect you.

Works well for my bad hip, using with Celebrex. Also cured my depression that I used to take an antidepressant for but stopped because of the side effects.

Tramadol has been a great help with my wrist pain. I have found it is important to take the dose before the pain starts. I use this product mostly at bed time and sometimes if the pain gets to much for me during the day. It's nice to have a medicine I can use at work if needed without the issues of Narcotics to make the pain stop, giving me focus on tasks at hand. Great product.

My primary gave me a prescription for tramadol after an ER visit from a sports injury. ER gave me a narcotic which caused stomach pain and very depressed feeling the next day. I am very active physically everyday 5k, 18 holes of golf, swimming on a consistent basis, not all in one day .I must say tramadol is great because it does not slow me down. I take it in afternoon and it keeps me pain free all night. If I stop it, very mild side effects a little like flu symptoms that do not last more than a day. Warning do not take an SSRI with other depression meds or benzodiazepines because it can cause heart problems and cause an acute crisis of heart failure.

I have been suffering from pain from Tennis Elbow. Now, no pain; but be careful with dosage. I was groggy for 51hrs fooling with one 100mg dose when I was supposed to be taking it 3 times a day.

Ultram (tramadol): I had arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery Feb 25th 2013 and my surgeon prescribe me 10mg Vicodin 6 times per day. After 4 weeks and "wanting to get me off of narcotics" he changed my prescription to 50mg Tramadol 4 times day. Honestly I believe that I am now receiving 1/10 the relief from pain that the Vicodin were providing.
