Reviews for Ultram to treat Chronic Pain

Sort by:

"I took this drug for approximately 2 months and while it helped a bit during the day, the multitude of side effects were much worse! My skin itched so bad I felt like I had bugs, and my joint pain was horrible. I have two herniated discs and I'm in constant pain, but this was definitely not the pain medication for me."

"This medication is about as strong as aspirin or ibuprofen. If you take them longer than a few weeks you will also end up with withdrawal worse than any other narcotic pain reliever. It can make you sick to your stomach and if your prescribed too much it can cause severe seizures. If you've never been on any other opiate pain relievers it may work for a bit but I'd use extreme caution in doing so."

"Very little effect on pain. Have not experienced any negative side effects. This medicine may work for others, but not me."

"I have chronic back pain. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis. The pain is unbearable at times. My doctor prescribed tramadol for me. It has been a life saver for me. This drug has given my life back. It takes my pain away for a few hours so I can do some house cleaning. It is amazing. Please always follow your doctor's directions when taking this drug."

"It's a great alternative for people with stomach issues as it causes no GI upset. You do have to eat, it can make you nauseous if you don't, but I can't tolerate anti depressant or strong opiates, so this does the trick for moderate chronic pain. Not a good choice for severe pain or post surgery."

"This did not do anything helpful for me. I tried it for 2 weeks as an opiate substitute after intermedulliary nailing. (This surgery always has a Very painful and long recovery) I was given this by my surgeon because it was supposed to be less addictive. After two weeks I decided to taper off it. This produced HORRID withdrawals. They were far different and more severe than stopping the opioids which I was over in one day. Don't take this med! If a dr tells you it won't cause withdrawals don't believe it. Opioid worked during my surgical recovery and were no prob to taper off then quit."

"I suffer from chronic back pain due to lumbar spinal decay and facet joint arthrosis. I have been taking tramadol (50mg) for quite some time. I know what the pain feels like when I don't take it (excruciating!) and taking it regularly - 3 to 4 times a day - along with others allows, me to function reasonably normally. I get a dry mouth at times and this is expected. I couldn't live without it."

"I started ultram a little over a month ago and am impressed with the lack of side effects. I also noticed it helps with my moods..maybe having less pain just makes me happier. Ive had spinal injections and am using ultram to hold me over until I get my next set. I do take it every 4-6 hours"

"It works a little when it wants too. I am not impressed with it and would not recommend this medication for moderate to severe pain."

"Tramadol works as expected. It does just enough so I can remain functional without stepping up to stronger painkillers. Tramadol only works for me if I take the doses consistently. When I first started taking Tramadol it took about a week for the medicine to be fully effective."

"Takes care of my chronic knee pain. Due to cancer, I am not a candidate for a replacement at this time, though I am need of them. Tramadol keeps me from suffering. I usually take 2 daily, prescription is for 4 daily. I up it to three if I have a day where I am very active. Everything has side effects and I can live with Tramadol. I like that I can drive and go to work while taking it."

"I have been taking Tramadol for a while for endometriosis. It works okay. It makes me extremely restless though and after about 8 hrs I get really nauseated and end up vomiting. It does help with the pain though. Not completely."

"I've been taking tramadol for back and knee pain from a motorcycle accident for over a year, it is a great pain reliever that eliminates 90% of my pain issues without making me feel drowsy like hydrocodone or oxycodone. It controls my pain and I still live my normal life."

"Tramadol is a good medication that can take care of a wide range of pain. This medication is a great sub to addictive meds. A medication that only manages the pain and does not manage your mental state."
