Reviews for Ultram

For Chronic Pain "This did not do anything helpful for me. I tried it for 2 weeks as an opiate substitute after intermedulliary nailing. (This surgery always has a Very painful and long recovery) I was given this by my surgeon because it was supposed to be less addictive. After two weeks I decided to taper off it. This produced HORRID withdrawals. They were far different and more severe than stopping the opioids which I was over in one day. Don't take this med! If a dr tells you it won't cause withdrawals don't believe it. Opioid worked during my surgical recovery and were no prob to taper off then quit."

For Chronic Pain "I suffer from chronic back pain due to lumbar spinal decay and facet joint arthrosis. I have been taking tramadol (50mg) for quite some time. I know what the pain feels like when I don't take it (excruciating!) and taking it regularly - 3 to 4 times a day - along with others allows, me to function reasonably normally. I get a dry mouth at times and this is expected. I couldn't live without it."

For Chronic Pain "I started ultram a little over a month ago and am impressed with the lack of side effects. I also noticed it helps with my moods..maybe having less pain just makes me happier. Ive had spinal injections and am using ultram to hold me over until I get my next set. I do take it every 4-6 hours"

For Pain "I just started this med yesterday for osteoarthritis & fibromyalgia. After reading the other comments my experience is pretty normal. I'm itching like crazy, had a bad night-no rest, nausea & mild headache. With all those side effects, it appears to have knocked off the edge of the pain. I will continue using if for a few days if I can handle the itching. I want to give it some time because I cannot use narcotics. I end up in the hospital with dehydration from vomiting when I use any narcotics."

For Pain "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."

For Back Pain "Around the same time this year I have had a baby and shoulder surgery for osteoarthritis. Hence, I suffered from both shoulder pain AND post-partum depression. Percocet didn't stop the pain and Zoloft made me feel worse. My doctor prescribed Ultram and it is now my miracle pill! It helps with both issues. It allows me to be a normal functioning mom. I love how it helps my mood and physical pain!"

For Back Pain "I have had a degenerative disk for almost 10 years, and have taken Ultram for the past year and a half. For almost 8 years, due to no insurance, I took nothing and lived with the pain. No narcotic such as hydrocodone has ever touched the pain, but Ultram completely eradicates the pain! It helps my mood and I'm able to work long hours with no pain. As of July 1, 2014 it is a schedule 4 narcotic and now I'm unsure whether I'll be able to get the dosage I need."

For Chronic Pain "Tramadol works as expected. It does just enough so I can remain functional without stepping up to stronger painkillers. Tramadol only works for me if I take the doses consistently. When I first started taking Tramadol it took about a week for the medicine to be fully effective."
