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.

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.
