"Was prescribed for pain related to colon cancer. Not taking any other meds yet. It arrived at 3pm today, took two 50mg tablets. Within 20 minutes the pain was gone, within an hour I was high as a kite. Couldn't focus, but felt good. Went to bed at about 6:30pm (I work grave yard shift), woke up at 10:30 with the worst headache ever, and very dizzy. At about 11:00 on my 5 minute drive to work I had to pull over due to dizziness and nausea. Ended up dry heaving on the side of the road for a few minutes. Started sweating profusely. Finally got to work, still dizzy. Can't focus on my work, and having trouble getting my eyes to focus..... 12:08, had to stop typing halfway through last sentence to run to the bathroom to vomit... Will not take more."

Tramedo (tramadol): "I have been taking Tramadol capsules for 6 months, deal with severe pain from torn tendons, both ankle and shoulder. Main purpose to help me get a reasonable night's sleep. Two capsules of 50mg taken 7pm have been very successful. There have been no side effects, I have been very satisfied with results. 14 days ago my chemist gave me Tramedo, 50mg capsules, as he did not have Tramadol in stock.... said they were the same. For the first time ever, I accepted replacement product. After 10 days, have been sleeping well past normal wake time, been very tired during rest of day, gasto problems, have had bruising (?) in the circles under my eyes that looked like blood blisters, and poorer vision. The supplying company have not returned my call"

"Tramadol used on top of my Fioricet, or Midrin. For head ache was somewhat effective. Used when the pain of the head ache has reached a point where I'm on the verge of nausea, and vomiting, once the other baseline abortives have failed. When used with the Fioricet/Codeine it works quite well, at knocking it out, otherwise just Tramadol even at doses of 200mg is only a dent in the pain."

"I was prescribed Tramadol because I couldn't tolerate other pain meds with codeine or Tylenol. Tramadol is great until you run out. I have taken this drug for approximately 7 years now. I wish I'd never started it. It's just been a roller coaster for me it helps me feel better, but does zero for the pain & then you build a tolerance up & it just gets worse from there. I've had withdrawals from this a few times. I've never had such horrible withdrawals as with this med, sneezing, coughing, hot, cold, chills, sweats, restless, depressed & irritable to name a few with lethargy. I am due for a refill tomorrow I'm not picking it up. It's really hard right now, but going through this agony isn't an option again."

Ultram (tramadol): "Took severe pain away. Hand and neck arthritis. Take with 2 Tylenol or ibuprofen every other dose for best relief. Brand name ultram 50 mg every 5-6 hrs if needed. For me, took most pain away! Better than vicodin and not sure why but so happy I have it. Cons: occasional nausea and big time constipation-take with laxative or colace. I started pill slowly- two 25mg per day over period of a week and worked up to 50 3 x per day over 3 weeks."

"I have chronic Lumbar pain...residual after a surgical procedure. Without worthwhile pain management, acute...like a 7 out of 10, worse on some days. I have above average tolerance for pain. My doctor believes that what I call a 5 or 6 would probably incapacitate the average person. I have been prescribed the whole gamut, from the steroid series every 9 months to Oxycontin. The injections were a waste. The various opioids just made me stoned. I could still feel the pain, I simply didn't give a damn. When I first used Tramadol (Ultram), 50mg, about 40 minutes later I notices two significant facts; I was NOT stoned. And I was NOT in pain. I have been using 50mg, 4 X daily since 2012 - no side effects, no pain. BONUS!"

"Been on Tramadol off and on for minor headaches and issues with Iliotibial band syndrome and arthritis. Basically since it is controlled it is a lot harder to obtain from a doctor and is also considered the new "painkiller" in ER's or doctor's office unless you have a broken bone. In all honesty it helps my leg and lets me focus at work. I've tried the norco and vicodin es,also lyrica and gabapentin but I'm not a fan. I dislike the nausea feeling and the grogginess. But at the same time everyone is different some people can stand this medication and some people cannot. I would recommend to those who have less major pain and do'nt need it all the time."

"I used tramadol after rotator cuff surgery. I found it to be a very effective pain medication. It did not have the side effects I've experienced with Vicodin and Percoset. No sleepiness or feeling of being high. No dependence. For me it was the perfect medication. Maybe my review helps somebody!"

"I have chronic IC (Cystitis) and a calculi in my appendix, however appendicitis isn't significant on a CT Pelvis, and Abdomen, without contrast. Tramadol helps some with the pain, but it doesn't cut it out unfortunately."

"Full knee replacement used hydrocodon/acetaminophen for initial 15- days then Dr prescribed Tramadol for pain during physical therapy. First one I took I couldn't sleep and wide awake to 4:30am!! Ok, maybe something else causing it? I read side-affects not many comments. I got by on Ibrophen during next few days didn't take Tramadol for 2-days. 3-RD day by 6:00pm after working 8 hrs at desk job then on to 1-hr PT got home and decided to try Tramadol again. I took one 50-mg at 5:30pm and didn't sleep until 3:30am!!! I also experienced itchy hand palms I noticed and lasted about an hour. My pain isn't getting relieved either!! Can't continue, need rest, stopped taking and just using Ibrophen until I see Dr tomorrow!!"

Ultram (tramadol): "This med works better than other pain meds. Knee pain was so bad from implants I was considering getting back on my crutches. No crutches needed and gained back a little energy."

Ultram (tramadol): "I have taken Tramadol for year and have found it very helpful with my body pain especially my back pain. I usually have to take ONE 50 mg of the pill and that really helps. There are many days that I may NOT have to take it. I don't find it addicting at all. I take it only if I really need it. My prescription says to take it 4 times a day. I would never do that. It helps with only one. It can be constipating and that is why I only take one to give me a lot of relief. I take it now with a stool softener. I am sorry if people find it addictive but I don't feel that at all. Perhaps they are taking 4 a day. I do not plan on dropping this pill for my pain any time soon."

"I've been on tramadol for over a year now,I lost my left leg Iraq in 2005. The V.A. is no longer writing prescription for narcotics pain killers as per the U.S. government. So here I sit day after day in pain. Thanks V.A. I put my life on the line and this is the way you repay me, not only me but 1000's of disabled veterans."

"After total knee replacement and now the other knee is painful, nothing worked like tramadol. I had oxycodone, hydrocodone, did not work at all. One tramadol 50mg in the early morning and one at bedtime works wonders for me, makes pain more tolerable and helps me sleep at night. I don't know ehst I'd do without it."

Ultram (tramadol): "Dose not work only made me anxious and angry I wasted my money and my chance to not be in pain after surgery. Stop peddling this rubbish. All the Dr round here are prescribing it thanks to some pharmaceutical rep but you're ruining people's rights to quality of life. You know it does not work."

Ultram ODT (tramadol): "You can use ultram to detox yourself from harder stuff like OXY or H. I used it before for withdrawal symptoms and it worked great. In case ur ever withdrawing bad and have some it will help."

"In all honesty the first time I had tramadol for pain it did nothing for me. It was after my hip surgery. It didnt work for my surgical pain 4 years ago. But the last surgery I had *gallbladder* removal it worked amazingly well. I'm not sure why it just did. I requested to be put on it bc the hydro codeine stopped working. I didn't want something stronger I wanted something different. And this last time I fell down my stairs. My hips get stiff sometimes and stop working properly. When this happens I fall down alot. I manged to bruise my lower back to my hip. Doctor gave me tramadol for the acute pain from the bruises on the hip. And it's been wonderful I can move no pain from stiffness I can move in ways I haven't been able to in years"
