"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."

For Pain "I took Ultram for over a year after herniating a lumbar disc. Apart from fatigue, a little dizziness and the usual constipation that seems to accompany most pain medicines, I had no major side effects. It did not eliminate the pain, but decreased it enough for me to function for the most part (sit, drive, sleep). However, over time my system became accustomed to the drug and it did not work for me anymore. Thankfully, I had minimal withdrawal symptoms. I have since tried Neurontin (Gabapentin), Nortriptyline and Topamax for chronic pain, with mixed results, and significantly worse side effects. Still no long term solution for the pain."

For Pain "Aside from occasional nausea if I don't take it with food, I find it takes the egde off my lower back and arthritis pain. Causes some drowsiness so I don't take it when I need to drive. Works better for pain than pretty much anything else I have tried."

For Pain "I have had 2 back surgeries 3 months apart from each other. My Neurosurgeon told me my spinal canal is to narrow for a fusion and there is nothing more to be done. In years gone by before some Doctor's really believed I had a pain problem. I tried Ultram, it did NOTHING, but my body was used to 200mg of Morphine and 120mg of Oxycodone. I since have found a wonderful caring pain DR. I take 4 x 30mg of Oxycodone and 19mg of Methadone 2 times daily and I can walk, very sluggish and am tired but I can walk."

For Pain "I have been taking Ultram for three months now for a compressed lumbar disc. I have had no problems with it like I did with narcotic pain relievers (serious withdrawals when I did not need the medicine for pain). It does cause some drowsiness and once made me feel nauseated, but all-in-all I like this medication much more than any codeine-based pain-killer."

For Pain "I have severe lower back pain. My Doctor had prescribed Lortab 10/500 which was effective for a period of one year. I noticed that all though this medication never really killed the pain, it made it tolerable and allowed me to live a normal life. After sometime I had noticed Lortab lost some of its effectiveness, and did not want to increase the dosage. Doctor prescribed Tramadol to replace lortab. I feel it works great and have zero side effects. I use it 3 times a day(50mg) tabs.I was worried about a symptoms of withdrawal from Lortab, but none materialized."

For Pain "I just started taking this medication. It works wonders. I have been in chronic pain for over 3 years and needless to say, constant pain puts me in a terrible mood. This medication not only relieves the pain in my joints, but also helps me psychologically. I'm not sure if it is the medicine or the fact that I am pain free for the first time in years."
