Reviews for Ultram

Sort by:

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 Chronic Pain "It works a little when it wants too. I am not impressed with it and would not recommend this medication for moderate to severe pain."

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 Back Pain "Started taking for back pain took two doses and ended up in hospital with halucinations, dizziness, and feeling faint. Shortly after that my body started shaking uncontrollably from the inside making my legs feel like I had ran for days. "

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."

For Chronic Pain "Takes care of my chronic knee pain. Due to cancer, I am not a candidate for a replacement at this time, though I am need of them. Tramadol keeps me from suffering. I usually take 2 daily, prescription is for 4 daily. I up it to three if I have a day where I am very active. Everything has side effects and I can live with Tramadol. I like that I can drive and go to work while taking it."

For Back Pain "I took two tramadol and had the best night's sleep for longer than I can remember. I have chronic back pain I got from from when I was younger where I was in a tournament fight. I am 40 now with a kid and working 50 plus hours per week (mostly sitting down). I have taken everything and been in physical therapy and nothing seems to work. I hate being in a fog of the other narcotics. I want to enjoy my life and my family not be oblivious to it. This is amazing. I don't want side effects so I'll keep it to a minimum."

For Chronic Pain "I have been taking Tramadol for a while for endometriosis. It works okay. It makes me extremely restless though and after about 8 hrs I get really nauseated and end up vomiting. It does help with the pain though. Not completely."

For Back Pain "I have found that this medication not only relieves my chronic pain but I am able to take it and still work- I could not do that with the standard narcotic pain relievers which are typically prescribed. Thanks to my doctor's recommendation of this medicine I am able to live a much less painful and much more fulfilling life."

For 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."
