Reviews for Ultram ODT
Review by weworkforamerica (taken for 10 years or more):
For Chronic Pain: I have been taking Ultram/tramadol for fifteen years four/day. It is usually but not always effective. I often have to add the NSAID Naprosyn. I have neuropathy and other side effects from chemo and osteoarthritis also from chemo. Many joints have no cartilage. I am concerned about chemical dependency and consciously avoided codeine or morphine. The Tramadol gets me through the average pain but not the severe pain. I really wish someone would come up with an analgesic that was both effective and nonaddictive and did not diminish alertness and effectiveness.

For Chronic Pain: I have the same problem (among others) and I was at a level 9, and 3 x 50mg tablets daily has taken me to a level 2. I have no side effects to speak of. Works great for me!

Review by Irishties:
My experience with Ultram is fantastic. I severely injured myself in a cycling in France while training for the Ironman Competition. I broke both wrist, elbows, back and crushed 3 vert in my neck. I have taken all the hardcore medicines which only took a pain level of 10 down to a 7, but the side effects were terrible. If I ran out early. I would get dope sick, but there was nothing to alleviate the pain level. My PCP advised me to try Ultram, and have been using it since January, it works great.

Review by Anonymous:
For Pain: I have been using tramadol for eight years for joint and muscle pain, the result of Lyme Disease which was undetected for more than a year. I have NO adverse effects. The one major problem I have had is since the medicine has now been classified a narcotic, my doctor now hesitates to prescribe it even though I have taken the same dosage for eight years with no reduction of effectiveness or need to increase dosage.
