I received this medication through my PCP for horrendous arthritis pain. This medicine is a joke! Like taking baby aspirin!

I experience pain also. I rcashed riding my dirt bike last year but I survived. Tramadol saved me for those days of pain.

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.

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.

Ultram is the only medication I can take for pain that doesn't make me sick. Lortab, Norco, etc. all make me sick at my stomach. Darvocet used to be what I preferred as it didn't make me feel sick, hate that it was taken off the market. But after hand surgery and being prescribed Ultram, it's nice to know there is a pain medication out there that works and doesn't make me throw up. Highly recommend.

Personally the medicine worked well for chronic pleurisy pain (bad stabbing sensation in side with flu or pneumonia) but I had horrible side effects. Dazed constantly, hallucinations, cold sweats, nausea.

I fell at work on my knees and have had severe pain ever since. I have been using 50 mg Ultram (Tramadol) for about 3 months and I can honestly say that I am able to function at work and during my daily life. I have been on hydrocodone and Lortab and both of these medicines make me sleepy and just out of it all day. Ultram helps me quite well but after 5-6 hours I am ready to take another one. Dosage is 3 times per day/every 6-8 hours. My family is happy and so am I. I would recommend this medicine, it truly works.

I have degenerative disc disease from my neck down and chronic daily headaches. I have been put on this several times over the past 4 years but even taking 100mg 4 times a day it did not help.

With Tylenol and Neurontin every 8 hours plus daily Cymbalta it works for fibromyalgia. Remove the Ultram/Tramadol and it doesn't. Ultram alone didn't do the trick, but it is the needed pill for this to work. From number 5 pain to zero/1 on a 10 scale.

I have severe scar tissue and adhesions from mutiple surgeries and the pain was intense it is in my pelvic area. I fill like I'm having a bad cycle every day and walking intensifies the pain this is a every day feeling. My doctor tried me on Ultram and it has been a God send. I take it three times a day. Without it it would be hard to walk so I give it a 10 thank you.

I take Tramadol 50 mg and Lyrica for my Fibromyalgia. These have given me back my ability to function. I still get tired and have less strength in my body, but I wouldn't be without the Tramadol for even a day.

50 mg (2 every 6 hrs) has worked wonders on my pain. I have a small cerebral aneurysm (too small for surgery yet) that causes me to have a terrible ongoing headache (for almost 3 yrs now). If taken consistently, it keeps my pain very manageable. I weaned myself off of antidepressents when I was in my 20's (I'm now 37) but depression crept back up on me. When I started taking Ultram, the depression symptoms WENT AWAY. I do have TERRIBLE withdrawals though. Otherwise, its been a lifesaver for me! Thumbs up!

Please be very aware of the side effects. I was taking this with no problem for about 6 months, then starting having mini blackouts (10-20 secs). Blacked out at the wheel and at work. Apparently this is called mircosleeps and is a possible side effect (under Somnolence). I also experience the CNS Stimulation side effects- mostly anxiety and euphoria. I have been off it for 6 months and no issues, but my doctors had no clue it was the medication, until I stopped taking it and the problems went away.

I suffer from degenerative disk disease and I've had surgery for this twice in my lifetime. I am only 43 and already on Disability. I have tried taking Ultram/Tramadol for my back pain and I feel absolutely NO relief when I take it. I even got brave and took 2 at a time for a day (my normal dose being 50mg every 8 hours). Still nothing. I've had at least three different doctors recommend or prescribe this to me over the last 4 years and have never once had it lower the pain in my back. I am glad to hear that it works for a lot of people, I just wish it would work for me.

Yes, I have experienced a side effect of Ultram which is preventing me from sleeping. It has 50 mg 1 or 2 tablets every six hours as need. I have tried them from my doctor and I have been up all night, I had a total left knee replacement revision on the 8th of June, 2011. I was told also to take 1 Ambien (10 mg) and 1 extra strength Tylenol at the same time. I did and all I did was cat nap and was always awake when the daylight came up. I need REST!

Doctor says he found some THC in my system. He took me off MsContin 60mg 3 x daily and put me on Ultram 50mg 2 x daily. I am so much in pain right now. This medicine does not help with my pain at all.

It sometimes works when I take 50mg and sometimes I have to take 100mg. I am allergic to Tylenol and there are not many options. This medication makes me feel like I have a buzz and I can't drive when I take it. If I do drive I feel hot, heart starts racing and I almost black out. So I take it in the evening when I am home. I also itch all over. No rash or hives just itching. Sometimes it makes me sleepy and other times I can not sleep. To me as long as it helps I can deal with the itching and buzz feeling.

I took just one 50 mg tablet for shoulder and upper back pain in the evening. I woke up with a migraine type headache. I am not likely to take anymore. I had no problems with Darvocet, but they took this medication off the market.

Ultram-50 relieved my neck pain (arthritis) and made me much more alert by removing the fog of pain, instead of the "drowsy" side effect mentioned in the literature. However, when I was switched to generic Tramadol, I experienced severe itching all over.

No effect. I thought it must be a placebo.

I was prescribed tramadol for a severe sore throat. I couldn't eat anything or take my other medicines before taking it and was only able to drink enough to keep me hydrated. Although I have experienced headaches and nausea since taking it, I can at least eat soft foods and soup and take my other medications. The headaches and nausea aren't pleasant, but, after losing 6 lbs in 2 days because I couldn't eat, the benefits definitely outweighed the side effects.
