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
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.
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.

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.
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 .
