For Pain "I have had constant back pain and hip pain from an accident two years ago. The pain was treated with a variety of narcotic pain medication ranging from Vicodin to Roxycontin. Eventually developing a dependency I managed to overcome. But not being able to take narcotics anymore, I turned to Ryzolt and the results have been nothing short of miraculous. The pain is alomost completely gone. I highly recommend it for people who have had problems with narcotic pain medication."

For Pain "It's okay. I take it (not every day) for back pain and migraines. First time I took it I threw up, probably because I've never taken any narcotic pain killers before. It still frequently makes me nauseous when I take it and takes a good four hours to really kick in and work. Personally, these days, I find much more luck with medical marijuana. Not habit-forming, and much safer."

"While I took much stronger narcotics immediately after knee replacement surgery, I weaned down to taking Ryzolt during physical therapy (PT). It provided more pain relief than Tylenol but definitely not as much as other narcotics."

For Pain "I am having great results with the Ryzolt. I have used and abused pain medicines in the past, making the issue of addiction a problem I had to devour. My pain persisted even after. I am carefully using the Ryzolt at one a day and am happy with my results!"

For Pain "I had a long fusion of my spine, from T-3 to the pelvis. This was a huge operation and it took over a year to heal, but chronic pain is the price I pay. I used to take oxycontin and oxycodone but my physician switched me to Ryzolt, 200 mg. It works better than the Oxycontin that I was trying to wean off. But I expected to be able to wean off of the Ryzolt as well and am now trying to take the 100 mg., but it is difficult. I'm hoping that the pain will subside with time, and am trying to go slowly by first alternating days that I take the 100 and 200 mg pills. My goal is to be medication free, but I'm not sure it's possible."

"While I took much stronger narcotics immediately after knee replacement surgery, I weaned down to taking Ryzolt during physical therapy (PT). It provides more pain relief than Tylenol but definitely not as much as other narcotics. I needed a manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) three months after my knee replacement due to adhesions that were preventing my knee from bending 90 degrees. My surgeon allowed me to take Ryzolt + Oxycodone during PT (only) after my MUA so I could endure the severe pain of therapy to maximize my knee bend, as Oxycodone alone provided insufficient pain relief for therapy. This drug combo was critical to my successful PT treatment, but required closed medical supervision (my PT knew of my meds) and of course I could not drive to or from PT. I have significant experience using narcotics after numerous surgeries and have never experienced addiction. All narcotics make me extremely itchy, so I hate them but I put up with them when needed."

For Back Pain "I love this medicine. The chronic back pain disappears and tramadol doesn't provide any drowsiness."

For Back Pain "Reasonably effective against pain but capable of interfering with breathing. Makes it scary to go to sleep. I'd be very careful with this medicine at any but the absolute lowest doses."

For Back Pain "Seems to do very little for back pain. 1/2 a Vicoden gave best results but impossible to get now. Actually had better luck with sinus pain."
