Beware.

There are two kinds of people: people who hate tramadol and people who LOVE tramadol. Both of these groups should probably stay away from this drug. I've been taking tramadol for close to 15 years and it does absolutely nothing to help with pain. I get a stronger effect from advil, seriously. But tramadol does have an anti-depressant effect that I can't seem to fully give up. I basically take it simply to avoid withdrawal symptoms. I wouldn't really call that an effective medicine. It does work at first though, I will give it that. And by "at first" I mean for the first few years. But you won't find many long time users who are excited about taking this crap anymore. We just have to or feel the wrath of depression. We don't even have the benefit of getting high off of this drug, it may be even dumber than smoking cigarettes. Ok, maybe its not as bad as that. At least it's a less expensive habit than pretty much anything else.

Ischias-pain on the right side/postop tumor on the

My experiense is that I have much less pain with this medication!
I`m much more variable. This means I can take walks with my dog.
I want to get asleep at night, without "running up and down" in pain.
Hope you can help me as soon as possible
Dearest regards Marie Persson

Tramadol for pain, works for me

I have fallen arches, ligament and nerve damage in my feet. I can't even go grocery shopping with out regretting it the next day. I've tried anti-inflammatories, hydrocodone, $400 insoles, and tramadol.
I took hydrocodone (5-15 mg a day) for years before I found tramadol. It worked for a long time but then became not as effective (only helped for 2hrs max). Also I was self medicating as this was before any diagnosis so it became quite pricy and hard to find.
So after finally being diagnosed I discovered tramadol. It kills the pain for much longer (5-8 hours). Also I don't feel as messed up. There is a buzz, especially when you first start taking it, but it doesn't make you as fuzzy. I currently take 150-200 mg a day.
It is the only thing that works for me.
Unfortunately it is incredibly habit forming and the withdrawals are horrible. I took loritabs for years (1 or 2 10mg tabs every day) and never experienced withdrawal symptoms like this. So it's a slippery slope my friends but when you have pain and your livelihood depends on your ability to work, you make tough decisions.
In short: works great for pain, may make you a little drowsy at first but this passes, can cause constipation like opioids, addictive so use caution and stick to your prescribed dosage. Maybe not a good idea for people with substance abuse problems.

Two very different tramal expiriences

first time i came into contact when i w/d from the great white.
(color white because this was the color i got it.this is why i did not understand for a long time what
brown sugar ought to be)
the first 4-5 days i took 200-300 mg every 4-5 hours,it kept the bone pain away. it really brightened my mood and helped with the wd
ALOT. as time went by i tapered down to 100 mg / 3 times a day.
this went on for a year or so,but by then i had problems falling asleep.
ok, so i took xanax to fall asleep.but i could sleep only 4 hours at night and would feel groggy all day.
because could'nt sleep more than 4 hours a time ,i felt very bad after getting up ,bones aching,depressed.
to get it out of my system, i went to sauna every other day.by then i went to another place and could not get it anymore and had cold turkey w/d.
AUTSCH !
a few years later a dr prescribed lquid tramal.i did not take any opiates for quite some time then .what a difference exp from the first time!
Initially, tramal induced a very strong euphoria not unlike the euphoria of a true opiate(close to my beloved white), but distinctly different.
It caused complete euphoria and calm at the same time.it allowing me to nod on it if I wanted, or be out and about on it if I wanted. It was always stimulating, in that it was less "apathetic" for lack of a better term than the white opioid, but quite sedating, too.
so the second time around i was pleased with the generally subtle, mood-lifting and comforting effects.also no prob sleeping the night through.
secound time round i just took 200-300 mg a time a day..and then 2-3 day off.
a real kicker was when mixed it with low dose lorazepam (and some cannabis)
another change in location and i was off it after 4 months .

It worked great for me

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Nov 2012, had surgery, went through chemo treatments and took this drug for pain. It worked great for me, relieved the pain associated with surgery and helped with anxiety also.

It is a zero

Given to me after experiencing a fall(from blacking out) resulting in a broken neck, badly sprained ankle and broken arm. Rest X 10 weeks. Pain is increasing since incident. This drug does nothing to alleviate the pain. I think I sometimes feel worse than if I took nothing. I am shocked that people find it at all effective. I told my doc to find something else for me. It is a zero in my book for relieving my pain.

For moderate pain this drug works fine

For moderate pain this drug works fine. The worst side effect is the drowsiness. This medication makes me more SLEEPY then any pain med I have EVER tried!It makes it so difficult to use during the day when you need to work and or get things done. I really wish there was a pain medication out there that is effective for pain -yet- does not make you so drowsy that you can't take it during the day.
