    I had a severe case of Guilliam-Barre Syndrome 27 years ago. I was in the hospital 2 1/2 months and on life support for 19 days.

I was on tramadol about two weeks before this medication. The tramadol was mild compared this drug, but effective for my pain. I ended up at the ER with a heart rate of 160, and the doctor accused me of having opiate wi ... Show Full Comment
