Reviews for Tramadol to treat Pain

Sort by:

"I was prescribed tramadol for my migraine headaches because the normal migraine meds haven't worked for me. Tramadol works well for the pain and doesn't give me the narcotic "haze" so I can still function."

"I was prescribed this drug after tearing some ligaments in my shoulder. I experienced little to no relief of the pain while on this drug. The side effects are real though and just made me feel worse. I have intense back pain and sinus infection like symptoms that only surfaced after my second day on the drug. my lower back aches and my eyes hurt while I experience nausea as well. In my opinion this drug does more harm than relief."

"I was on Oxycontin-240mg a day endone 50-70mg a day and tramadol 400mg a day. It was very hard to get off the Oxys, the endone wasnt that hard and tramadol was easy. But I got put on Zaldiar and taken off tramadol and the endones with little annoyance. Now I take just the zaldiar and I find it helps ( I see alot of people stating it made them tired and sick but not for me) I dont find any withdrawal if I dont have it for a day or two or 3 even. The only thing I notice is a little restlessness which is more like boredom then uncomfortable. I had a bigger addiction with other medicine I had to take from an injury and some days/nights I would curl up in a ball and white knuckle it. Not with this nor do i get tired it really helps me"

"One pill makes me sick more than 24 hours regardless of diet and is generally ineffective for pain. Nausea and lack of pain relief was so bad, had to get something that does not cause debilitating nausea, pain relief was not noticeable at all."

"I used tramadol to ease the pain from my bladder infection. I took it with ibuprofen and it helped significantly. The main side effect of this medication was how tired it made me. I could not keep my eyes open for more than an hour for the two days I took this. One time, I took a 7 hour nap from this pill. I do not recommend using this if you have to drive. It's very dangerous."

"I was prescribed tramadol for the arthritis pain in my hands. I had no relief from pain so I used aleve or ibuprofen which worked slightly better. I've read how some people have a significant reduction in pain when using this drug but I actually asked my doctor if it was a joke. I don't think it takes the pain away so much as it effects your thinking...."

"I was found to be type 2 diabetic after I went to the doctor complaining about pain in my feet and hands. My blood sugar was found to be at that time 500. They told me the pain was Diabetic Neuropathy. They tried several drugs that did not do very well and caused me to still be in pain and also dizzy. I had fallen and hurt my back. The back doctor gave me Tramadol. An unexpected outcome of that was that my foot pain went away ! I told my primary Doctor about it and she changed my medication to Tramadol. Tramadol is a Godsend to me ! It stops the pain and I don't feel dizzy or woozy."

"after reading everyones experience with tramadol I feel better knowing it wasn't just me having withdrawals. H-codone couple days little stomach tightness no problem. Tramadol real sick feeling, now been 4 days without. starting to get better no bad stomach feeling did think I was getting the flu but sounds like everyone else trying to quit had the same symptoms. I have a script waiting for me at the pharmacy and that's where its staying. wasn't much help anyway."

"I've been on tramadol 50 my 3x day for 7 years now for arthritis. It's a very good pain relief it also helps sleep good an helps with my anxiety issues. But my tolerance level started to get high after a year of taking it. It stop working good so I had to start taking four a day, then ended up finding out I'm having withdrawal symptoms which is VERY TERRIBLE thing to go through. I suggest if anyone taking this... *WARNING* if u feel like it not working anymore and you've been taking it for a long period of time stop taking them that means your getting addicted. Or just take a break from taking them for a bit. Went through hell with the withdrawal from those."

Ultram (tramadol): "I was on this medication briefly for my arthritis pain. I would describe it as "many side effects, no good effects." It had the side effects generally associated with narcotics (sleepiness, dizziness, nausea), but it didn't help my pain at all."

"I was put on tramadol for pid (pelvic inflammatory disease) for nearly two years. I was never told it was addictive. I stopped using after I was refused any more. The withdrawal symtoms felt like I was dieing please DO NOT USE"

"Before my recent l4-l5-s1 fusion I was on Tramadol for almost 2 years. 3, 50mg tabs a day was adequate, just enough to dull the pain without dopiness. After my surgery I was changed to Hydrocodone 5/325, 4x daily. After a month of that I was feeling miserable with mediocre pain relief. On a really bad day I decided to switch back to Tramadol. Wow! Almost instant pain relief and a huge boost in my mood. Tramadol is a strong anti-depressant versus the downer effect I got from Hydrocodone. Couldn't be happier! Only "bad" side effect for me is a little impatience sometimes that is easy to control. For what its worth the Doc says I'm the exception to the rule. It's hard to predict how this drug will affect a particular person so go slow at first."

"I work 7 days a week, 10-14 hours a day doing hard labor. my friend gave me a 100mg pill from citra (I think) one day and within 15 minutes all the pain was gone and I felt like my mood was increased x10. I worked harder than I usually do without one and had a very fast pace. I take one in the morning when I know it's gonna be a rough day and it helps me out through the whole day, if I notice I really need another one (which is rarely) I'll take half and feel better. I stop for a week or two to not build a big tolerance and haven't felt any negative side affects or having the need to want to just go pop some. The only noticeable side affect which didn't mind much was that my breathing was slightly off, not too much; most pills cause it."

"When I went into labor I had to have a episiotomy got about 50 stitches and had a rough labor. I was in a lot of pain after but I also planned on breast feeding. My doc prescribed tramadol 50mg. He reassured me it was fine with breastfeeding. The medicine definetly worked with the pain for me 100% that's why I gave it a good score BUT PLEASE mamas who are breastfeeding pay attention, soon after getting my baby home I noticed she was sleeping so much all day all night I would have to wake her to get her to eat and this was the only thing I could relate it too was the tramadol it was the only thing I was taking I IMMEDIATELY stopped the medicine and she was fine after that so please even tho the doc says it's ok I would def not recommend it"

"I'm allergic to codeine and NSAIDs rip my stomach apart and cause GI bleeding so this is what I take for pain. tramadol 50 mg two or three/day. I broke my foot recently and was literally screaming in pain. Took Diclofenac, tylenol, no relief. Took 100 mg tramadol and feel much better now. I had to get off Prozac to take this but I'm glad I did. Prozac made me eat all the time, I put on 20 lbs. tramadol actually suppresses my appetite which is a plus. If you take this longer then a few months make sure to taper off."

"I think this stuff works great as long as ur not a habitual user of the stronger pain killers. I'm allergic to NSAIDs and aspirin so I can pretty much only take Tylenol and the occasional cox 2 inhibitor (Celebrex, vioxx, bextra). I took Tylenol and Celebrex yesterday for leg pains and got no relief. Used Tylenol today. No relief. I took a 50mg tramadol and pain gone!!! I have a high tolerance for certain meds but for pain, I'm an over the counter kinda gal. This is great for single doses! Maybe not for daily regime :-/."

"Good experience. Got the med a long time ago. Some people react different to tramadol. It is heavy. But in my case far more effective than other medicines."

"Worst prescription medication I have ever taken. First, it barely works. You would be better off taking over the counter medicine. But, the worst part of this drug is the day after. It literally feels like a hangover every time! I get migraines, nausea, hot flashes, and sometimes I throw up. The whole day after is like this. It's not worth it."

"I am a runner and had strained my back during training. I was taking 4 advils at a time for weeks and even though I was popping them like M&M's, o as still suffering. My doctor prescribed Tramadol 50mg 1-2 pills every 6 hours and took the pain away immediately!!! The side effect I had were slight headache and it made me little loopy but it outweighed the back pain I was experiencing so I was happy with it. Don't plan on taking this long term but it was the only thing that worked for me."

"I took this for menstural cramps and noticed absolutely no difference at all in pain or mood. Its like taking motrin! The only thing I get is a little dizzy. I am very disappointed with this medication. The warning label scared me... when I finally took it I could not believe it did absolutely nothing for the pain."

"I was prescribe 50mg 4x a day and then moved to 300mg extended release. While on the 50mg 4x a day, I noticed it took about 15 minutes to feel some relief from my joint & nerve pain. The only problem was each dose only really lasted for about 20 minutes. The first does ever was a oh yer finally some relief, that lasted 20 minutes. That was the reason we switched to 300mg extended release. Again, it took about 15 minutes to feel a decrease in pain. With the extended release, it still only helped for a short period of time, maybe an hour or two. I stuck with it for about 4-6 weeks hoping it would build up & eventually relieve pain for a good portion of my day. Honestly, it only cut pain by about 50% & never lasted longer than 2 hours."
