Reviews for Tramadol to treat Pain

Sort by:

"I tried tramadol at the suggestion of my Dr as I don't like how Lortab etc makes me feel. It didn't seem to help though. Then I read somewhere to take it with an extra strength Tylenol. It's like a miracle. The two together worked so well for me. It was suggested that the combination of the two enhanced the effectiveness. It did for me."

"I have been given this medicine on and off for the past several years. I have Crohns and Colitis and it is given for the pain and spasms that happen at any given time. It has done nothing but upset my stomach and cause stomach ulcers. Doctors are unwilling to prescribe anything else as none of them are good for working to maintain a healthy gut. However, it does it make it hard for me to be able to live and work with the pain so I end up in the hospital more than I would like."

"Everyone is different and not everyone will like tramadol but I suffer from chronic TMJ dysfunction where my jaw locks up, clicks and pops and is so very painful all the time. I was prescribed 50 mg to take 1-2 tabs every 6 hours. It worked AMAZING. I love tramadol for any type of pain including back pain that I have on occasion. Only down side is it can make you constipated, can make you go through opioid withdrawal if not tapered off of it gradually when stopping and also long term use can make the dose less effective and you will have to either take a break from it or be prescribed a stronger narcotic because more than 2 tablets of tramadol can damage your stomach kidneys etc."

GenRx Tramadol (tramadol): "Tramadol is worse then useless. It has done nothing for the pain of a broken rib. The pain is the same weather I take the drug or not."

"I had two teeth pulled and was given Tramadol 50 mg. I used it maybe three times, but it did nothing. I still had pain and had a terrible time trying to sleep. I found that 3 ibuprofen worked better and I didn't need a prescription for that. So the Tramadol went in the medicine cabinet never to be used again."

"Prescribed for pain on a as needed basis. Make me feel euphoric but does little for the pain. Makes me itch and I don't sleep well when taking. Always wake up with a hangover type headache. Now, If I mix it with a Goodys power or another NSAIDs it works ok. Side effects are still problematic."

"Hi , I take Tramadol every 8 hours 50 Mg. I have Factor 5 mutation a blood clotting disorder. Both my legs are filled with chronic blood clots threw my groin and I also suffered PE. in December. I was going to my Pain Dr for 2 years telling him it's not working for me. All he seemed to do was tell me he was not going to put me on anything else... So I gave up and feel left out like the trash my my Medical Dr. I did every nerve test and they came out fine, I went to at least 10 different Drs not just for my pain but my " Green Fitler " as well and Blood Drs and so forth .. to be told that the nerve test they gave me wont show this type of nerve pain I am in agonoy 24]7 I cry my self to sleep most nights and suffer greatly ."

"Is it the most random drug in the universe or what? Until I was given a prescription that didn't play well with tramadol, I had a fairly high dose RX for a pain disorder, and my spouse had also been on it for an injury. We joked that tramadol seems to roll a six sided die when you take it. 1-no effect at all. 2-no effect on pain, but nausea and feeling icky. 3-no effect on pain, but you're too stoned out to care. 4-too stoned out to do anything, but pain is gone. 5-no pain, but you feel awful. 6. no pain, and also not stoned. We both tried a pain tracker app to see if there was any rhyme or reason to the randomness. Nope. The food you eat, time you take it, etc., seems to have no effect...how it will effect you is random."

"After a 3-month heavy regimen of surgeon-prescribed oxycodone due to a head-on collision, the oxy was replaced with generic tramadol 50 mg, 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours. At first I hated it, the numerous side effects caused more suffering than my injuries. I later saw a pain-management specialist who lowered the dosage considerably for my 90-lb frame to 25 mg every 8 hrs and I've had much improvement. My pain is more tolerable, I have no more side effects, nor do I need to sign a waiver to obtain it. Most importantly, I can now function more normally and even drive short distances again. In my case, the correct dosage is the key to success."

"I was prescribed tramadol for pain relief after having all four of my wisdom teeth removed. After reading some of the reviews I felt like I had to post my experience, because everybody is different when it comes to pain tolerance and medication. I'm taking 2, 50mg, roughly every 8 hours (or whenever I'm noticeably uncomfortable) it worked, and still is, working wonders for me. Quick acting, no pain, and a euphoric feeling for many hours, but not debilitating - I still function fine, if not better. Sucks that it doesn't work for some people which in turn might turn others off from giving it a shot when it may work wonderfully for them! I can see how it could become addictive for people with addictive personalities, so be careful."

"I was prescribed Tramadol by an emergency room doctor until I can get in to get my wisdom teeth removed. I'm supposed to take one pill every six hours, but only take one pill whenever I have absolutely unbearable pain, that doesn't go away within one hour. The pain relief is quick, within 20 minutes, takes from a 10 on the pain scale to about 5. Terrible nausea, shakes, lightheadedness, and sweats if I don't eat plenty before or right after taking this medication. Constipation also caused, clears up two or three days after ceasing."

"Doctors prescribe Tramadol for pain they don't consider severe enough for say percocet or vicodin, but severe enough that it still needs an opiate to manage the pain. Tramadol is the little brother of the opiate/opioid family. People don't talk about "Tramadol abuse" but it is very addictive and for tons of people it simply does not cut it for chronic pain. My personal experience..it helps my back pain for a couple hours, but I just have to keep downing 100MG every 2 hours and I'm not doing that. You get high off of it with little pain relief. My side effects: severe headaches, nausea, dizziness. **IF YOU ARE TAKING ANTI DEPRESSANTS research SEROTONIN SYNDROME** Can also increase depression. Stay safe & check this site for drug interactions"

"Tramadol is a drug that does not work for everyone. I found that different generic brand of tramadol work better than others. I have had the best luck with teva and mylan. The others give me a horrible headache, and dont do anything for my back pain. Also the less you take the better off you are. I take 6 pills a day that are 50mg. I take them 2 at a time every 8 hours. Some people have a hard time finding mylan , teva , and northstar generics. You just have to do the leg work. I get the mylan at walmart. Most places have amneal, and caraco because its cheaper. I can say the brand name ultram is the best by far, and cvs will order it for me, but 180 pills is way to much for me. If you can afford the brand name ultram go for it."

"gave me a buzz, did not kill any pain at all (ear infection/throat infection, swelling, pressure). Increased dosages just got me more buzzed with the same excruciating pain."

"I was in a car wreck with whiplash. eye sensitivity, pain from mid back of head down spine to below shoulder blades, and out to both shoulders, and involving full lumbar area. Doctors put me on this stuff for the intense pain. I took it for two days, hoping it would help. OMG it double-downed my pain. I wanted to kill anyone and everyone, walls, sheets, everything that got in my way or accidently pissed me off. Called the doctor and literally growled at her about how much I hurt. I expected double pain to some extent after that kind of a shake up but this was beyond acceptable and as soon as it was out of my system I still hurt but was back under 10 on that 1 to 10 scale."

"I will be reporting back often. I am on my third day of Tramadol and it seems to be a miricle. I have been pain free. I am taking one 50 mg tab every 12 hours. I also take methocarbamol 750 mg every four hours and Xanax 0.5 mg every 8 hours. I have not been pain free in 10 years. I am reading such bad things about tramadol on this website that I'm getting afraid to take it. I thought I had found my miracle but if the side effects are true I don't want to have anything to do with this medication. Feedback please."

"I was precribed tramadol acetominophen for post operative pain and found it very effective, muting it to the point where i could forget about it. I noticed immediately that it also put me in a super good mood, just pleased about everything... Very nice, but I can see how easy it would be to become addicted to it and am backing off after only a few days."

"I hand thumb surgery and take 2 at each time. Once during half of the day and 2 more at night. This medication definitely helps with my anxiety and pain. Its remarkable. Gives me this weird buzz but feels great"

"I feel a need to give a personal warning against Tramadol. They are not kidding when they say it’s a STRONG drug. I had, to some degree still have, problems with bad general anxiety, and accompanying bad pains which were oddly un-located, sort of All Around. (I’ve only recently learned that this is not unusual and doctors can’t help apparently.) So I tried all kinds of different drugs from the Net. One which I felt made a difference was Tramadol. So I used it for several years, getting up to insane doses like six hundred mg daily, partly because it didn’t *really* help overall but only suppressed the pain for some hours and then it came back worse."

"I've been taking Tramadol-acetaminophen 37.5-325 for about 4 months now. I have back issues. Right now I have pain running down my legs and am waiting for it to kick in. I have never noticed any kind of side effects whatsoever. Tried taking one in the beginning & felt nothing. I take 2 at bedtime. It takes the edge off & makes me comfortable. Last night I was so miserable and what a relief I felt after taking it. I have to figure out how I can get more. I'm not sure how it works. Regular doctor told me he can't prescribe it to me and it has to be through pain management. But I'm not currently going to a pain management doctor at the moment because nothing I've tried has helped. This is the only thing that's given me some relief."

"I was prescribed tramadol for my migraine headaches because the normal migraine meds haven't worked for me. Tramadol works well for the pain and doesn't give me the narcotic "haze" so I can still function."

"I was prescribed this drug after tearing some ligaments in my shoulder. I experienced little to no relief of the pain while on this drug. The side effects are real though and just made me feel worse. I have intense back pain and sinus infection like symptoms that only surfaced after my second day on the drug. my lower back aches and my eyes hurt while I experience nausea as well. In my opinion this drug does more harm than relief."
