What is the cause of your back pain?
I have degenerated discs mostly. And severe arthritis. Mine feels better when I have SOMA (Carisoprodol ) and naproxsyn. My back has inflammation all the time and these take out the inflammation and relaxes the muscles.
Tramadol NEVER did help me as a pain killer for the escalated pain I have in my back.
I find that doctors start out on the low dose and work up. Trying different strengths and different medicines to ones medical condition plays an important part in your treatment. Also trying a new medicine, and seeing how it will effect your pain level. Hopefully you have been in contact with the doctor to let him know that it doesn't seem to be helping, and he can continue to work on getting it down.
Best of luck!
