Reviews for Ultram

Sort by:

For Pain "I was prescribed this medicine for moderate pain after surgery. My incisions bothered me, and I took 4 pills a day for the first 3 days, then usually 2 a day. However, the side effects: nausea, palpitations, dizziness, drowsiness AND sleeplessness, constipation and mental vagueness were really too unpleasant to be rid of minor pain, so after a week I stopped taking it. It is annoying that after stopping it, I suffered nausea, palpitations, and weakness/drowsiness after large meals--possibly due to withdrawal."

For Pain "I have arthritis in most joints and back and neck pain. I have used Tramadol for 2 years now. It was life changing in the way it relieved pain without nasty side effects of hydrocodone (I got very irritable when it wore off). Seems to be taking higher dosage for less relief but still would rather continue the tramadol and use something for breakthrough pain on physical work days. If you experience nausea try a lower dose and work up to more. Stick with it, the nausea went away for me. When I forget a day or so and go back to it I sometimes get nausea again."

"I have suffered with fatigue and joint and muscle pain and restless leg syndrome for ten years. Used Ibuprofen which only helped a small bit, I finally said enough is enough and went the doctor and told them to give me something for the pain. I felt like I was losing my mind and I just said I know I have fibromyalgia and I can't take it anymore. She gave me antidepressants and a muscle relaxer and Tramadol. I only felt doped up with the antidepressant and the muscle relaxer but the Tramadol was awesome. I am now able to work pain free and exercise, I have lost 40 lbs since I started taking it and I feel more normal. I don't think I can deal with the pain again. I take the 50mg tab 1 every 5 to 6 hours."

For Pain "Found Ultram to be the only medicine to help with my pain from Multiple Sclerosis. Let's me live a relatively normal, semi pain free life."

For Fibromyalgia "I started taking Ultram 2 weeks ago. The Doctor said I'd notice a difference right away. So far nothing. I'm in the middle of a flare-up that isn't being helped by Ultram."

For Restless Legs Syndrome "I have horrible Restless Legs Syndrome. Not just in my legs, and not just when I'm trying to sleep; I experience a horrible tension in my limbs all day. Tramadol (Ultram) completely cured it. Also, I experience chronic pain from an old injury, and Ultram is the only NON-OPIATE medication that actually helps my pain."

For Fibromyalgia "I was previously diagnosed with Lupus after a few miscarriages. Now for the past 16 years I am being treated for fibromyalgia. I've been on Ultram for 15 years. I take 1 to 1-1/2 tablets every 4-6 hours 3 x's day. It has enabled me to stay working full time outside the home with very few side effects. I can always tell if I forget to take them as I start feeling the joint pain real bad and no energy. It has been an absolute life saver for me."

For Fibromyalgia "Have had Fibromyalgia for 17 years, just diagnosed this year. Was prescribed Ultram for worst pain days. Almost completely takes the pain away with 100mg. Little to no side effects. First couple times I took it, I felt a little drowsy. I am very happy that my rheumatologist recommended this medication. To get some pain relief and still feel like myself is all I could hoped for! Would recommend."

For Fibromyalgia "A doctgor (I've been to many) tried me on Ultram. On about the 2nd or 3rd day, I was at work and began feeling very strange. I got shakier as the morning progressed. I got up and could not walk without holding on to the wall. Then I began having breathing problems. I asked my boss if somebody could take me to the ER. On the way there, I truly felt like I was going to die. My coworker got me into the ER and the triage team first checked my heart out with an ECG, etc. The conclusion the ER doctor came up with is that I was having something called Serotonin Syndrome which can be quite serious. They gave me some Ativan and sent me home. My mother-in-law was on Ultram for years and it worked very well for her."

For Fibromyalgia "My rheumatologist started me on Ultram a few weeks ago. I also take Zoloft. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia approximately 10 years ago and have tried several medicines. My rheumatologist was concerned about my long term use of Tylenol and Advil on my kidneys and liver and said this would be easier on my body. It has helped a lot. I have much more energy and much reduced pain, it helps me go to work regularly and have a life with my family, but if I miss a dose I am really moody and weepy, so everyone knows when I haven't had it. I like it so far."

For Pain "Well, very few side effects for me, but also very little pain relief. I've been prescribed this several times to treat my chronic pain symptoms as well as a couple of acute things (injuries). It was basically for the purpose of being able to function. "

"Did nothing for my severe pain now unfortunately back to the hydros. Don't like being slightly buzzed constantly but better than hurting. It works for mild pain only for me."

For Pain "Helps within 20-30 min when taken at onset of cluster headache. Works best/fastest when taken with a cold, caffeinated soda. My cluster headaches are followed by 2-4 hours of allodynia, and Ultram helps this, too."

For Pain "I found that when I take Advil or aspirin with Ultram they seem to make each other more potent. Never take all three together though."

For Pain "I have taken Ultram for long periods of time. My experience with it was pretty good. It did give me relief from moderate pain due to tendonitis at the same time. It gave me a little bit of an energy boost not sure why. But beware going off of this medicine can be just as bad as going of Vicodin."

For Fibromyalgia "Tramadol saved my life. Fibromyalgia had just about taken my life away. I was constantly in pain, tired, and often in a mental fog. It was causing major problems in my marriage, because the pain, fatigue, and fog made me a horrible husband and father. I wasn't doing my part around the house because of the pain, fatigue, and lack of cognitive clarity. My wife was resentful, and rightfully so. I finally ended up in a Doctor's office in tears - I told him I was "crazy". He said I was not crazy, I was ill. He prescribed tramadol and Cymbalta. My life has completely changed: no pain, no fatigue, and no fog. My life and marriage are restored, and we are happier than ever. Daily, I thank God for a good, knowledgeable doctor, Cymbalta and Tramadol."

For Pain "Have been taking this for only about 3 days. Seems to take away most of the pain. Works better than anything else has for me. I've tried Vicodin, Percocet, and naproxen tablets. This works better than any."

For Fibromyalgia "I started taking Tramadol for undiagnosed knee pain about ten years ago. It was a miracle. I was actually able to walk for most of the day without pain. I finally had knee surgery, so I only had to take it a couple times a week. Then, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 5 years ago and had brain surgery, which I have had many bad effects from. The tramadol and also Percocet get me through my days. I want to kiss whoever created the tramadol."
