I have taken this drug for 10 years for a serious back injury with some parcel peraliss in lower back and left leg. Have had no problems what so ever with Ultram 50mg

Woderful. I have used this medicine for ten years now taking the max dosage of 400mg daily. It manages my pain well and gives me the energy that I need for a full day. But, be very aware that this can be a very addictive and habit forming drug that can have very dangerous side effects if stopped abruptly, such as seizures , restlessness headache, chronic fatigue, and extreme stomach discomfort. If taken properly, though, this is the most efffective pain reliever for my injuries that I have ever taken.

I was "talked into" trying this medication for the pain associated with Osteoarthritis. I have had it for several years, and did not want to become dependent on something or other for the pain. Mostly I could put up with it, but when I overdid an activity, such as carpentry, or car repair, or such, then I would surely pay for it the next day. At times I found it difficult to even clean a dozen fish, and so I began limiting many of my favorite activites... Last year, during my annual physical, my doctor made the suggestion that I might want to consider using Ultram ER on a trial basis. I, as per usual, declined with the same old excuse that I didn't want to get addicted to something, just so I could do things I used to do. Well, my wife chimed in, stating that I was to the point of doing little or nothing anymore because so many things tended to make me hurt. So, why not give a try for just one month, and see how it went. I finally agreed. I filled the scrip for a months supply, and after about a week my sister happened to ask how I was feeling, not knowing I was on a new medication. It was then that I realized that my hands had not hurt for a day or two... WOW, was I ever surprised a the realization!!! So, I have know been on ULTRAM ER for about 50 weeks, and I am doing many of the things I used to do, and suffer little, if any, from the activity, unless I totally overdo it. My friends even have noticed how much better I seem to be, and how much more I can do without complaining or bellyaching about the hurt. It has been a real godsend to me. And I would suggest others who may not want to get "hooked" try it - it's great!!!

Have taken it for fibromyalgia for quite a few years. Works well enough so that I'm able to work 30 hrs a week and I'm 60 yrs old.

Yup this pill is a joke. Let me tell you a real story. A family member I have has been in the medical community since 1979. She says when patients come into the hospitals or clinics for pain if a doctor even suspects "addict" they through up the T sign. You know one hand over the other hands fingers, like time-out. There are some docs who do not believe the experiences people are having because of this. Careful, your name gets put into a national database if the so called gods of medicine believe your not really in pain. I have seven hurniated discs, degenerative disc disease and arthritus of the spine. I have been dealing with this since 1990. I only see the doc when flare ups occur. I seek physical therapy, massage, and early on a chiropractor. I do not want to be on meds at all. But, when I am in pain, I want something that works. Surgery??? My new neuro-surgeon has three hurniated discs, and she won't even have surgery because of known complications. So were dammed if we do and dammed if we don't. Good Luck to all!!!
