I have been on tramadol for for years first giving to me for pain. It is an incredible pain medicine that gives me so much energy and makes my anxiety and occasional depression non existent, however, I have tried so many times to get off because I am now completely addicted. When I want to get off, even taper down enough to get off, I get the most horrible lightening zapping going thru my brain along with other withdrawals. It is an incredible drug for pain and depression BUT be careful if u stay on for a long period of time u will become a prisoner just like any other pain, depression medicine and the withdrawals are ugly.

After taking Co-codamol 30/500 for ages a friend gave me a blister pack of tramadol 50mg. Good pain relief but made me go a little strange and talk nonsense to folk.

I'm taking it for Pain From Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. Wonderful medication aside from a little minor increase in agitation/irritability

Tramadol would MILDLY work for my back and knee pain for about a week and then stop. Oxycodone works best for me and hydrocodone is second. If it works for your pain, great but my experience is that it does nothing more than ibuprofen or other OTC pain relievers in the long run. The physical withdrawal from tramadol in my opinion is worse than hydrocodone or oxycodone due to the dual action it has on the brain.

Over five years ago I was told no more NSAIDSs because of kidney disease. I had found naproxen sodium effective for arthritis pain and migraine headaches. Now because if the kidney disease I was prescribed tramadol, up to 100 mg four times a day. At first I thought it was a joke. It was not nearly as effective as over-the-counter naproxen. But I stuck with it because I had to. Gradually I became aware of its pain reducing qualities. Recently I had joint replacement therapy and had good pain relief but terrible side effects from oxycodone I went back to tramadol and it was enough to take the edge off. I have noticed the headache that many mention in their reviews, but it's mild and short lived. I even take tramadol for real headaches!

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.

As I'm allergic to Codeine and have had 4 major surgeryies for Cancer in the last 12 months,I thank God for Tramadol .Fast ,effective relief during a time of great anxiety and discomfort. We all react differently to medications but if recommended by your MD give it a try

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.
