"After two bunion and hammertoe surgeries this worked like a charm! Much better than Percocet because I wasn't loopy and it does not cause stomach upset!"

"Cheap and didn't even touch the pain. Waste of hope for relief. OTC pain meds worked better than a months supply of this. You can have it!"

Ultram (tramadol): "I have been taking Ultram (brand) for 7 years for the management of chronic neuropathy pain in my arms, legs, hands, and feet, and I wouldn't change it for anything. Non-addictive, effective 90% of the time, it's a rare day when the pain exceeds the drug's ability to control it. Yes, there is some occasional residual background discomfort; with chronic pain that's to be expected. However, as long as I can function normally without a lot of adverse side effects and addiction, I'm a happy camper. Please note this is for the brand Ultram. I had serious issues with the generic (with the fillers, I think), and do not recommend generic at all."

"I have been given tramadol 50 mg for my severe ankle arthritis. It is amazing stuff..I take 2 usually at work ( I work overnight). It takes the edge off of my pain and I can actually function. The only side effect is a bit of a cotton mouth. Funny thing though is it does nothing for my headaches.."

"I experienced loss of appetite and had 3 falls due to this medication. I also experienced being unusually cold and my hand/fingers would shake, not the usual steady. It all stopped after stopping tramadol. I was prescribed the 50mg pill every 6 hours."

"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. "

"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."

"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!"

"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."
