For Rheumatoid Arthritis: “I have RA, nerve damage and widespread pain. Helps better than just tramadol by itself, don't know why cause its a lower dose.”

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.”

just a guy in pain · Taken for less than 1 month November 13, 2015

For Pain: “Just took one of the 37.5/325's due to severe and I mean SEVERE mouth pain from strep throat that not only made it unbearable to swallow but it went into my gums around my wisdom teeth so bad my gums swelled over my teeth like flaps. I am very weary of pain meds, always expecting the worse from them so I don't take anything. But I can tell you this, I'm glad I did! Within a few minutes it all went away. Its been over an hour now and I'm still good but I have noticed I'm sweating a little bit but according to the side affects it might happen. My chest feels really relaxed and that is a peaceful feeling. My only regret is I should have taken this sooner. Good luck hope this helps.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I suffer from acute muscular pains in my legs at night (one leg at time). May be due to medication which I have to take to control my cholesterol levels . I had to undergo Bye pass ten years back. The side effects of pain in my legs means I have extremely disturbed sleep. I discovered that taking one Ultracet tablet at night enables me to have a undisturbed sleep due to absence of pain. In my case one tablet works effectively for two nights. In order to avoid getting addicted I normally take this drug only once a week - that's not too regularly. But whenever I have taken it has helped immensely without any side effect what so ever.”

For Pain: “I am 60 with degenerative joint disease, scoliosis, stenosis of the spine. My L joints have had countless injections and 3 rounds of RF Ablation. My S-I joints are constantly in pain but the L-joints get some relief from the RF Ablation. I currently take a combination of Gabapentin and Tramadol-Acetominophen. I have tried many other drugs. This combination is the most effective with the least side effects. The pain is lessened by up to 50%. I do get a positive well being feeling. (Other drugs left me with a negative, not-wellbeing feeling.) On occasion I have experienced increased libido. I only take when the pain gets really bad.”

For Pain: “I have had back pain for 10 years. Tried many medications with no help with the pain unless it knocked me out for days or hours then feeling impaired not able to function properly or think right! Just when I was about to go on disability my Doctor said lets try one last thing and that is Tramadol/acetaminophen. Wow it really works for my pain. I can function think work and be pain free. It's been 3 months now and I have not missed one day of work and I even managed to loose some weight for I have energy and able to do SO much more!”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “66 yo with badly damaged ankles--both need replacement, which I won't do until absolutely necessary. Bad back; recent wrist surgery. Hamstring injury taking months for recovery. And some shoulder pain. All from a lifetime of sports competition, injuries, and overuse. I take Tramadol 37.5 with acetaminophen and it really helps. Take around 3 to 5 a week. Have tried the time release 200 mg and it really worked, but knocked me silly for the first couple hours. Ultracet really helps and I'm wary of additive potential since I feel hopeful/moderate well-being on it, but at my age--what the hack.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: “I had a rheumatoid arthritis flare-up and hadn't experienced relief in weeks. I took Aleve which normally works, Mobic which worked a bit, Naproxen which didn't work at all, and then Ultracet which worked wonders. I finally experienced incredible joint relief and slept through the night.”

For Pain: “I have fibromyalgia. I keep reading everyone's rave reviews on this medication but it really isn't helping me. The feeling of wellbeing people are talking about is not there. I am still in a great deal of pain everyday. I am 25 years old and I have severe fibromyalgia. I tried this medication because I work full time and go to school so I cannot be taking narcotics all day, its too hard on my body! Well hopefully everyone keeps their good reviews and I am just an exception to all the reviews!”

“I started taking Tramacet (Ultracet) a year and a half ago for severe back pain from a screwed up spinal tap. It takes the edge off enough that I can make it through a day which is saying a lot since some days the pain is so bad I'm curled in a ball sobbing. I try to limit myself to 4 or 6 pills a day but will go with the maximum if desperate. I did experience the acid reflux side effect to the point my doctor prescribed me ranitidine to help it. I also have discovered that when I am on the Tramacet I experience pounding in my ears, a constant whooshing (as though I am holding a seashell to my ear) that does throw me off balance when moving from a sitting or laying position. Other side effects I have suffered don't bother me enough to be noted.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I have taken Ultracet for 10 years for pain. I have had surgery on both knees and I was in a bad car wreck that damaged the nerves in my neck. Ultracet takes the edge off the pain and makes it easier to cope with. Thanks to Ultracet I have led a relatively normal life. Without it I hurt so much that I don't want to do anything. I take four a day now and ten years ago I started with one. I take up to four a day based upon my activity level for the day.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “Was prescribed acetaminophen/tramadol for migraine pain after traditional migraine medicines actually worsened my really helped..a strange sort of relief though...can still feel the actual pounding but it just doesn't hurt after I take the tramadol! I am used to it now. Usually take 1 or 1/2 a pill 2 or 3 times a week...although was prescribed to take every 4 hours as needed. Oh also, I was having a problem with frequent diarrhea and that is gone now too! I get itchy skin when I go several days without them but not so much that it really bothers me.”

For Pain: “I Have ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis. I work on my feet for 8-10 hours a day and without the tramadol I cannot work. I can't stand straight or walk let alone work. This medication takes away the pain and literally allows me to live. I don't know where I would be without it. But I have to say for some it might be addictive because of the feel good effects.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I've only been taking this medication for 2 days (back pain), it takes the edge off which allows me to function better. However, I'm nauseous, dizzy and lightheaded and I can't keep my eyes open and I'm not even tired. I'm thinking about not taking it because I can't drive like this with 2 young children in my car.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I've been taking Ultracet for about 4 months, usually 2-4 tablets daily. Not sure why my doctor prescribed it for long term use when product info says it is for short term usage. The pills generally help with pain, but they also give me a feeling of "well being", like a narcotic pain killer. Recently, I had a delay in getting my prescription filled and had to stop the pills abruptly. On the second day, I experienced withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, flu-like chills, clammy hands, restless leg syndrome and sleeplessness. ”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “Is very good for pain. I have ankle strains, elbow bursitis, shoulder bursitis, arthritis and joint pain and strained tendons in both knees. Constipation is the only side effect.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I have a badly herniated L5-S1 disc. While Vicodin is a very effective and safe medicine, there is just too much stigma and psychological dependence. I've been looking for a medication that's as good and found it. I really think Ultracet/Tramadol delivers as good of analgesia as Vicodin but without the stigma and abuse potential. I started on Ultram ER 200 and had some side effects, namely bad headaches, drowsiness, and "crashing" in the evening. My doctor switched me to the Ultracet 37.5/325 and it's great. The acetaminophen eliminates the headaches and the drowsiness and crashing are eliminated because I can take my 3rd or 4th dose around 6pm and it carries me to bedtime. I also take Gabapentin 300mg at bedtime.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “Just want to say I've been taking Ultracet for about 8 years now. I have 3 herniated discs in my back. If it wasn't for Ultracet, I don't know what I would have done. It helps me to get up and do my daily routine. It helps me when I want to workout. It helps me cope with the everyday pain. I recommend Ultracet to anyone with pain. Remember though - it's not meant for everyone. Different people react differently to medications. So, ask your doctor if you can try it and see if it works for you. Good luck.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I've been taking ultracet for over a year now. My elbow was shattered and the radial head was destroyed. Because of the injury not healing properly my arm can't straighten out all the way. I also have terrible arthritis and tendonitis in that elbow which causes severe pain throughout the day. My doctors wanted to give me a healthy dose of percocet and oxycontin but I didn't want it. I was given ultracet and it has worked great ever since. I take anywhere from 4-8 in a day and can still function and do my job without being on a cloud.”

Ultracet (acetaminophen / tramadol) for Pain: “I was prescribed Ultracet after a car accident. I found the side effect of constipation a blessing in disguise. I rarely took the maximum dosage and realized it greatly helped my irritable bowel syndrome. I take one tablet per day and have little to no issues with loose bowels.”
