Hello Carmen Chavez, & welcome to the site. You don't state what your health condition is that is causing your pain , how long, you have had it, or what your outcome is expected to be. It is acute pain meaning something new that isn't expected to last, or is it chronic where you have it all the time like a bad back? It makes a big difference in how it is treated for one thing. Tramadol is a synthetic opiad with antidepressants qualities that can be addictive. It helps some people with pain, but not all. Without a better history of your pain & health it would not be wise to reccomend a pain reliever to you if that is your question...
Mary is correct, we do need to know more. I've been on it a long time for fibro pain, and I've learned it won't make it go away totally. It makes it more bearable. I've also found out that you can't take it after the pain gets bad and expect any effect from it. If you take it on a regular basis for example every 6 hrs, you stand a better chance. There is an extended release tramadol which I was on and it made a huge difference, but my insurance won't pay for it and its very expensive.
Hi, I also agree with the others... I took it for prolapsed discs in my back & had to take it regularly from waking & every 4 hours (immediate release capsules) religiously. If I took it ad-lib it wouldn't be so effective. Please heed Mary's warning about it being addictive though
