Has anyone ever been given tramadol for your pain instead of vicodin etc? Does anyone have details about it/ if its worked? Ive read many things saying it doesnt really work like those others do for pain


Crysta, I have used tramadol for years. I have found it helps with my migraines and neck pain, but not my TN.

It doesn’t help me at all, and it gives me insomnia. I don’t like it.

Tramadol is used similarly to codeine, to treat moderate to moderately severe pain, Tramadol is somewhat pharmacologically similar to levorphanol. Tramadol is classified as a central nervous system drug usually marketed as the hydrochloride salt (tramadol hydrochloride); the tartrate is seen on rare occasions, and rarely (in the US at least) tramadol is available for both injection (intravenous and/or intramuscular) and oral administration. The most well known dosing unit is the 50 mg generic tablet made by several manufacturers. It is also commonly available in conjunction with APAP (Paracetamol, Acetaminophen) as Ultracet, in the form of a smaller dose of 37.5 mg tramadol and 325 mg of APAP. The solutions suitable for injection are used in patient-controlled analgesia pumps under some circumstances, either as the sole agent or along with another agent such as morphine. DID NOT WORK FOR ME...

Pain meds did not work for me at all, even morphine. Tegretol has helped some…but not too much

I have never taken tramadol because it would make me sick, but someone I work with swears by it. He uses it for his back problems. Different pain, so I don’t know. Just thought I would let you know.

I took Ultra ER (tramadol extended release) with good results with other medications for about 2 years.

I used a combination of acupuncture and tramadol for several months ,when pain was controlled I use

only the tramadol. I'm counting my blessings I haven't had an attack since Feb. of this year. so far I've had no side affects from Tramadol.
