... and have to sit for 1/2 hr to pee. Major pain in my lower back hardly able to walk ... what should i do ?
If you're having this much pain then this crap isn't going to help you. Ultram (tramadol) is only equivalent to Tylenol#3 and aren't much good for anything. They also can cause seizures when you get to high doses which you are getting close to. This is one reason why you're having trouble urinating. You're taking to much, this is quite common especially if you are a relatively new user of opiate like drugs. This meds is terribly addictive and cause terrible withdrawals. If you have significant back pain then this stuff is not going to help. Can you see your doctor and get on oxycontin or any other sustained release opiate... Good luck... Dave
My doctor said decreased urge to urinate can be a side effect of a regular dosage of tramadol. It doesn't necessarily mean someone is taking too much of it. I have trained my bladder to go when I feel I need to and it won't come out. My doctor taught me some things to do to get the flow going. Try talking to your dr if you are only taking your prescribed dosage. He should very well be able to coach you in some methods to help you urinate and completely empty your bladder, too. Good Luck to you !
