Ok from one medical pro and former user of tramadol for pain, and over 60. Tramadol is not for severe pain, it is for moderate pain. I was on 100 mg qid and it didn't help when the pain got bad. Tramadol extended release works somewhat better, but its very expensive. I found if I took the regular one on a routine basis and not wait until needed, that it worked better, but not for severe pain.
Hi, my mum (60 yrs +) was prescribed Tramadol at a maximum dose of 400mg per day. This seems to be a pretty standard dose. I myself, was prescribed Tramadol at the same dose (i am in my 30's). Certainly do not exceed 400mg per day, and it works more efficiently if taken at regular intervals... 100mg every 4 hours
