Low back injury July 2009. I have taken Lorcet, Lortab, Percocet & Ultracet in the past. I now take Ryzolt 300 mg QD and it is a miracle drug for me. I have no side effects from it. It is very expensive at $400 for 30 day supply, thankfully I have 2 different insurance policies that cover it so my copay is $0.

I have been using Ryzolt for around 6 months now for chronic pelvic pain. I found it much more effective than the comparable Ultram ER. Downsides are nausea and lightheadedness. Also must be taken on a regular scheduled time every day because withdrawl symptoms happen relatively fast and are miserable. I have found when taken on a full stomach the nausea is greatly reduced.

I was prescribed this medication for chronic back pain and arthritis of the knees, in hopes that we would not have to increase my daily Lorcet dose from 2 to 3 pills. Unfortunately, this has done no good whatsoever; it has been like taking a sugar pill but without the placebo effect. I read about relatively low doses of this medicine controlling people's pain effectively, and I've even read about people getting addicted to it. I honestly can't say I understand how something that has such little-to-no effect on me can have such a strong impact on others. The only effect I ever noticed when I took tramadol (regular release form) was that it seemed to make my anti-anxiety medicine work a little better for a while.

About 5 years ago I herniated my L5-S1 disk and after two and a half of years recovered from it after surgery, therapy, etc. I went about 6 months pain free and then lifted something wrong and hurt my back again. I went about 7 months dealing with chronic low back pain eventually giving up on vicodin after it lost its effectiveness. I didn't want to ask for anything stronger and my doctors seemed to start wondering if I was just looking for the drugs, since an MRI didn't show anything abnormal. I think it was a strained ligament. Anyway I figured I just had to live with varying levels of pain the rest of my life and sometimes was miserable. A few months later I had an especially bad flare up so decided to see my doc and he prescribed ryzolt since he was concerned about me taking narcotics again. A couple of hours after taking it my pain was mostly gone. The next day I was pain free. I was amazed. It was the first time in over a year I had been pain free and I was simply ecstatic! I started at 200 mg and went up to 300 mg after a couple of months. The nice thing is I started exercising again and after about 5 months the pain stopped so I weaned myself off of them (you do become dependent on them). I then went about 5 months with little to no pain and then a couple of months ago after installing new baseboards in a bedroom, I had another really bad flare up (probably a ligament again). The urgent care clinic gave me vicodin but it didn't help that much so the next day I went to my family doc and asked for ryzolt and again it helped the pain so much better. I'm now taking one 200 mg tablet twice a day. I know that is a lot but it works and with almost no side effects. The nice thing about ryzolt is it isn't a controlled substance like other narcotics and so doctors are more willing to prescribe it. I know it doesn't work for everyone but for me, they are a God send.

I have been on Ryzolt E R for the last 5 months and it has helped my back, but the side effects makes it almost worth giving up on it.Now it is becoming lest effective.

I suffer from chronic pain. This has taken the highs and lows of pain meds away. I still need extra help after about 18 hours. I have been having allergic reactions to things I have had no problem before using such as some foods. The reaction has been facial swelling and breathing problems. I can't confirm it is because of the drug but have stopped using it for a bit to see if I still have these problems with certain foods. Other than that, it has worked well and would recommend to others for pain. Also have noticed some problems with ED but that could also be associated with other meds.
