When it comes to Ultram for depression; evidence points to Ultram as being a drug that may cause depression due to withdrawals. It should not be used to treat depression.
Very few people have luck with Ultram treating depression. Most of the time, if you hear of someone saying this, it's on a non-medical forum and the individual was experiencing severe pain before and isn't now. Ultram does help pain; usually very effectively. If pain is making you upset then theoretically you might say that Ultram stops your depression. That's not a clinical assessment, however. Ultram solves a different issue from depression - pain.
Ultram does help my depression emensly! I have noticed it for years. I have suffered with Chronic pain and depression for 20 plus years and been on many antidepressants and pain meds and this medication was given to me for pain and the more I took it as needed for pain I noticed I felt normal those days and not depressed. I wish I could get it in place of an antidepressant being that I have no side effects from it and feel better with it.
