It was very effective at easing my back pain, lasting much longer than 6 hours on a low dose (50mg) Although I rarely have headache, I have had more recently although I don't know if that is connected with the drug. I do feel more positive and a little more energetic. I have taken it once a day, occasionally twice, and sometimes not at all for a day or two. No withdrawal symptoms, stomach issu ...

I have elbow pain from falling on the ice over a month ago. Tramadol has not been helping much. Dr. changed medication to Lortab which works much better.

Stop gradually to avoid these unwanted side effects.

Comment:
I was taking tramadol for an ankle injury then stopped. I suffer from chronic migraines and one day I took it in desperation and it helped significantly. Don't get me wrong if I have a full blown migraine I need to take my prescribed meds, but a milder to moderate one responds well to tramadol.
