Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: "Was given this after a tooth extraction. Yeah it works for mild pains (level 4 pain and lower ). It makes me extremely groggy, but I can't seem to really sleep very long while on it. It also dehydrates me really quickly."

For Pain: "Having shoulder pain for many months went to the doctor the insurance company deny the test that he ordered and they put me on the Tramadol 35.7mg acetaminophen 325mg and it's barely touching it. I'm not sleeping so we're waiting to see what can be done"

For Pain: "I have taken it for 2 issues over last 2 years. First was a lower disc, second was a pinched nerve in neck so upper disc. Without it I could not function. First time was 6 pills a day for 2 months. Second was 3 pills a day for 4 weeks as the pinched nerve needed less. Nothing else allowed me to move, work, sleep. Without it with the disc issue I could not stand. I must say coming off was hard. I went slowly down to 1 and stopped but could not sleep for 4 to 6 weeks. Feels like you drank 10 coffees before bed. Pulse in the 90s, I am norm of 65 pulse. It is worth it for allowing me to function but I wish there was some way to avoid the withdrawral as In fear I will need again someday. Sleeping pills and other things did not help."

For Pain: "I have been taking Tramadol for a period of ten years. A starting dosage of 300 mg daily. (100 mg 3 times daily) I have chronic pain in my shoulders, Doctors, Specialist and therapist have both told me, I have severe nerve damage in both shoulders that is not repairable, even though I am having corrective surgery to repair all the tendons, muscles, ligaments and rotator cuff that are torn and partially disconnected. I've never had an upset stomach, or an adverse reaction to the drug, fact is it immediately relieved the pain I was having and allowed me to resume a normal day's work. Addiction/Dependence? Yes I would say I was addicted to this medication. My reason as to Why? Cause it relieves the constant pain I experience 24 hrs a day. Yes I worry about all the side effects, but I AM a responsible adult and follow my doctor's direction."

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: "I've been taking Ultracet 37.5mg/325mg for 12 years. I am 74 years old. I have arthritis in my joints and degenerative disc disorder in my lower back. I usually take one pill early am to take the edge off my pain for most of my daily activities. If I have "over done it" throughout the day, I sometime have to take a second pill at bedtime to get pain relief and sleep."

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: "I have several back and joint issues that have stemmed from degenerative joint and disc. I take 3-4 pills daily to continue reasonable function. I have 4 boys at home and pets. Recently, our health insurance cut me down in coverage to 1 pill a day. I'm in agony, level 4-5 pain now after 3 weeks of 1-1.5 pills. Sad situation. What do we do now? Medical procedure so expensive"

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: "I have arthritis and I am waiting for a hip replacement. The cartilage has gone in my hip. I am walking on bone on bone with terrible pain. I take 4 - 8 tablets a day depending on the severity of the pain. Ultracet controls the pain perfectly and I can walk almost normally. I have been on the medication for about 4 months now with no side effects. It's brilliant and I would recommend Ultracet for pain relief. It is the only painkiller that works for me."

Diddie November 12, 2017

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I was originally prescribed this medication (it's called zaldiar where I live but is the same as Ultracet) when I got shingles and it helped a lot. I've since continued to take it since I was also diagnosed with RA as it works incredibly well for me. It means the difference between controlling my pain sufficiently I can keep working, and being almost unable to function. It helps with both the pain and fatigue I feel -- when I first started to take it the effect was so profound I felt as though I was back to "normal me". I'm now taking 2 tablets twice a day and that's sufficient to keep everything under control most days. If I need to I can take them 3-4 times a day but that's rare for me unless I'm having a major RA flare."

For Pain: "I've been using the red capsules for several years with good results. Recently I was given the beige capsules by amneal and they make me sick and do not reduce my pain. There were a few white ones mixed in with the others which also worked. I now have a bottle of beige ones which are worthless unless you want to feel worse. And, I am unable to get any others because they're controlled and the pharmacy says beige is all they can get from their supplier.."

For Pain: "This medication did not help me with my pain, peroid. I took up to 400mg at once and still no relief but it did make me feel nauseated and gave me a headache. It's synthetic and really more like a weak antidepressant. I was prescribed it to alternate with my Hydrocodone 10mg tabs. I stopped my Norco for a 2 week period to give Tramadol a chance but it never worked. This stuff is rubish! No it's not equal to Codeine. I have taken Codeine and Tramadol is entirely different in effect. Sorry I'll stick to true Morphine based pain meds like Codeine, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, etc. Even synthetic Darvocet worked better than this stuff!"

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: "Take this when taking a triptan for headache pain, this is to bring baseline pain level down a few notches if I was late taking my regular abortive it usually won't work unless I can get a control on the pain, Ultracet is mildly okay at this, just a trial for headache pain as I've tried many others, but not too bad to have sometimes, can be somewhat effective."

Working through the pain January 29, 2017

For Pain: "I've been taking tramadol acetaminophen for over 5 years. Most people will need to start slowly on this drug, like a quarter dose, then slowly build up to as much as needed, but obviously not exceed their prescription dosage. I have bilateral joint disorder, inflammatory disorder, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. This drug has been a life saver. I can actually function almost normal. It has not caused me to become addicted or require more than what I need to take. I do have an occasional dizzy spell if I bend over and rise up again too quickly, but then I am 64 so it may not have anything to do with the drug. I have never taken prescription drugs before because of the horrible side effects, but this is one I can highly recommend."

For Pain: "I have suffered from moderate to severe back pain for 15 years. I have a disk herniation and pinched nerve. Lots of pain all day. Nothing relieves it. I have been on tramadol 50mg. After 4 years on the Tram became addicted. I loved it bcause i could work like hell on it. Pain gone. Took anywhere from 100-400mg a day. I had doc take me off. Took some of my wife's here and there. I call my doc and told her She HAD to give me something i was missing work a lot and i just can't go without something for the bad days. She give me ultracet. Literally does almost nothing for me but makes me Nauseated. Maybe it dont work because I been taking tram up until she gave it to me? Built a High tolerance?"

For Pain: "I had been on hydrocodone for QUITE a few years for a repaired again (3rd time) left knee, and un repairable right shoulder (rotator cuff) work related. I along with my new doctor (recently moved), decided that with the tightening of regulations and seems more and more of a stigma associated with hydrocodone, decided to try the ultracet. First, I had NO withdrawals from the switch off of hydrocodone( which was a BIG concern of mine because of how long my previous doctor had prescribed hydrocodone). Second, the pain is controlled just as well with ultracet. I thought it would not do as good of a job. Third, whether it is believed or not, my head is much clearer. I do not feel like I am impaired (at all).Great Medication!"

For Pain: "Took for bad tooth pain. Dentist prescribed it yesterday till he can get my swelling down and pull it next week.. Knocked me on my butt. Could barely talk, I slurred when I spoke.. Walking, I staggered everywhere.. made me so tired. Knocked the tooth pain out though. Fine for at night since I'll be sleeping anyhow. Not during the day. I actually took it before I picked up kids from school. Wow.. terrible driving home when tramadol kicked in. Make sure u try this medication when ur going to be staying home for about 6 hours.. just to be safe. So it definitely worked for the pain. Helpful for at night as it knocked me out and I didn't even know I had tooth pain. I slept hard all night."

For Pain: "This medication works better on certain medical conditions, particularly spine pain of any kind, and moderate acute joint pain, and acute muscle pains. It is an opioid, though working differently from the other opiates, and will act as one - in that you may get withdrawal symptoms if using it for a long time. Likewise if you start using it at higher doses (like 2 tabs) you will experience the nausea that comes with opiate use. Better to start it at a low dose of half to 1 whole pill, and work up if needed. Only take this pill at the minimum dose you require for the least amount of time necessary, unless your doctor tells you otherwise."

For Pain: "Taken after laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal with torsion. I usually can only tolerate toradol for pain due to severe vomiting that occurs with strong pain meds. I took 4 mg of Zofran 15 mins prior on a full stomach and the incision pain lessened about 20 mins later, plus no intestinal side effects. Highly recommend taking with anti nausea if your stomach can't tolerate it alone."
