    I got a prescription for Tramadol from the emergency room. I took one dose and from there the entire night was AWFUL. It started off with mild irritability and anxiety which turned into a strange sense of impending doom and I could not get myself calm. I tried to lay down but didn't sleep, rather I blacked out and when I came to consciousness I couldn't talk or move my body at all for seve ... Show Full Comment

    A few years ago a doctor at an urgent care clinic prescribed this for a bad tooth infection that flared up over a weekend. I had to sign some sort of paper before leaving the office and then hand-deliver the prescription to my pharmacy. How disappointing it was to find that Tramadol didn't even touch the pain. It seemed to have NO effect whatsoever. The medications prescribed by my dentist - V ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking Tramadol for five years for my rheumatoid arthritis pain. I wouldn't be able to do much of anything without it! I take just half a pill and it takes the edge off so I can function. I suddenly feel more energy so it does wake me up instead of sleep, so I cannot take it after 4pm. I love my tramadol!!

    Took severe pain away. Hand and neck arthritis. Take with 2 Tylenol or ibuprofen every other dose for best relief. Brand name ultram 50 mg every 5-6 hrs if needed. For me, took most pain away! Better than vicodin and not sure why but so happy I have it. Cons: occasional nausea and big time constipation-take with laxative or colace. I started pill slowly- two 25mg per day over period of a week and ... Show Full Comment

    Does not have any effect whatsoever on my pain. I'm better off taking an aspirin.
