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."

For Pain "I have been taking Ultram (200 mg a day) for several years now. I found that it does take the top of the pain down but doesn't give me great relief. I am finding it's effectiveness less and less and will be trying to wean off of it but withdrawal symptoms are pretty bad. Please be well aware of the dependency issue. "

For Fibromyalgia "Ultram has helped me greatly, it doesn't always take all of my pain away (of course!) but it truly takes the edge off and helps me to function. I have not noticed any side effects besides sleepiness especially when I take more than one tablet."

For Pain "I used this medicine to kick major withdrawals from heavy pain killers. It took the edge off with Xanax. It doesn't work for pain though I can't imagine it working for anyone unless your pain is minimal."

For Pain "I underwent a two-level lumbo-sacral spine fusion (2-level PLIF) in 2007 and have been on Tramadol for chronic pain since then. I find that Tramadol works as well as most opioids with less impairment at similar levels of pain relief. I HAVE experienced two seizures thought to be caused by Tramadol while I was titrating upward on the drug, but have had no problems since. I have tried titrating off of Tramadol twice and in both instances experienced moderate withdrawal symptoms of the opiate type almost immediately. Overall I consider it a very effective analgesic for chronic low back pain with few side effects, but would recommend a prolonged titration off of the drug if you decide to discontinue use. I give it a thumbs-up."

For Pain "I have been on this for quite some time for pain. After I had my gallbladder out, in 2007, I started having constant pain in my right side that feels like a side cramp that you get after running. Anyway...Ultram (Tramadol) has worked the best of everything the doctor has had me try. It gets rid of a lot of the pain and I've had no side effects."
