“I just started Ultram ODT so far not impressed the government need to understand there are people out here that needs these meds. Good honest hardworking Americans who deserve a few hours a day without pain. Now I am in pain all the time I don’t have insurance, so I pay for all my meds with cash. There no way I’m going to even consider selling my much needed meds and I know there billons out there who are just like me I have had to go dark to take care of myself it was that or a bullet in the head nobody wants to be like this nobody!!!!!! But our government doesn’t care.”
“Tramadol wasn't even considered a narcotic until maybe 5 years ago. For me it dosen't do anything for pain you be better off taking aspirin. To actually think people take this and get relief is mind boggling. ”
“I have prostatitis and this is very good for the pain. I take 50mg every other day, I would like more but my doc is very reluctant. I would like it every day so may need a new doctor.”
“I have to say this med has helped me a lot it has taken my pain from 8 to 3 I drive a semi so I'm very limited on what I can take. Also sitting in that seat for hours on end would make me want to hang it up. The pain was so bad then I was put on tramadol now I can play with my kids right after driving for hours and just be a little stiff n sore instead of going straight to bed cause of the pain. Plus cigarettes tasted so nasty I had no problem quitting when I started”
“I have been taking Ultram/tramadol for fifteen years four/day. It is usually but not always effective. I often have to add the NSAID Naprosyn. I have neuropathy and other side effects from chemo and osteoarthritis also from chemo. Many joints have no cartilage. I am concerned about chemical dependency and consciously avoided codeine or morphine. The Tramadol gets me through the average pain but not the severe pain. I really wish someone would come up with an analgesic that was both effective and nonaddictive and did not diminish alertness and effectiveness.”
“I have lupus, fibromyalgia and graves disease along with severe chronic depression and OCD. Tramadol does NOTHING to improve my quality of life. I'm 58, in pain always and cannot get a real pain killer!!! My life sucks. Can't enjoy anything from my grandchildren, to being on our boat in the summer. I even hurt when I'm cold! I want percocet or oxycodone....”
“I use ultram/Tramadol 50 mg for breakthrough pain usually. Normally in that capacity they work okay. Prefer them to having to use a second opioid that makes me drowsy or more constipated. Right now it has become my only pain med, and taking max dose of 150/8 hrs is a joke. If you have real pain long term I find a common opinion among chronic pain sufferers that this is true.”
