OK so I read someone on this site got tramadol for lower back pain too. I didn't or hasn't helped with pain really, but it did make me sleep for almost 16hrs :-( .
Also I noticed for me its more like taking a happy pill and so I shared this odd experience with some ppl, and they said they are on it for depression. I also learned that the reason I had a monster headache and upset tummy and felt like an eliphant was sitting on my chest is part of the side effects. And it can also cause seizures in some. I am a happy positive person in my daily life..so I don't need antidepressants at all. But the scariest thing about taking this, is that it made me sleep almost 16 hrs
