Yes, but its not like other pain meds. If you wait until you have pain to take it it wont work. I've found that if i take it on a regular basis it helps. You also need more then 50 mg for serious pain. I take 100 mg every 6 hrs. I used to take the extended release which worked better but my insurance won't pay for it and its expensive.
Hi, i also have found that taking Tramadol on a regular basis greatly increases it's analgesic properties. I used it for a back injury. The foundation of the problem led to pain in my legs at times & Tramadol were very helpful in dealing with this pain. However i can't give you this advice without warning you that Tramadol can be habit forming. Some people can take it as prescribed without any problems, however, i know a lot of people that have found themselves increasing the prescribed dose because of the benefits they received. Please take care : )
Yes, I haver peripheral neuropathy (some of the same symptoms) from Lyme Disease and the Tramadol is my go-to. I have oxycodone for breakthru and am now trying the Butrans patch to use instead of the oxy, but love Tramadol and will cont using it bc it works for most pain and I don't feel the least bit altered. Never take more than prescribed (100mg max per administration) bc it can have bad consequences which I have encountered in the medical setting. Beyond that, two thumbs up!!
