I was prescribed Ultram (brand name) for years to treat stomach pain and it was a miracle drug for me (helping with mood, energy and lifted anxious feelings as well). I normally take 50 mg a day (25 mg twice daily). Now, sadly, Ultram is no longer available and I have been searching to find a manufacturer with hopes I’ll find one that works as well as Ultram did. Manufacturers I’ve tried are: Amneal, Virtus, and Sun Pharmaceutical (Caraco) and they all give me some form of anxiety; don’t lift my mood and don’t help relieve pain like Ultram did. I understand everyone reacts differently to medication, but if there is a specific manufacturer that has worked well for you and your willing to share please do. Thank you so much!!
Which tramadol manufacturers work best?

I know this is an older post, but I am going through a similar situation. Did you ever find any manufacturer that makes Tramadol like the formulation that worked in the past?
I was never prescribed Ultram, but just generic versions of Tramadol through the years. Mostly because of insurance reasons I suppose. I just recently checked on Ultram. Pharmacist said it’s been on back order since 2020!
So yes, Tramadol used to work for pain very well! I also took it for stomach - an undiagnosed incisional hernia for many years. It was a terrific anti-depressant as well. Altogether it was a wonderful medication!
The new Tramadol(s) are just YUCK! They don’t work at all for pain and they have no mood lifting effects... just make me nauseous (usually sick all day) and makes my mood worse!
I’m trying different suppliers now as well. Amneal... worthless. Sun Pharmaceuticals... worthless. Btw, a few years ago, I took Tramadol from Sun and all was great, so... I’m starting to think they have changed the formulation of Tramadol altogether!
I’m going to give the supplier TEVA a try next, and I will report back on how that goes.
If Mylan available try it.
