  • Perceived effectiveness for Psychosis Disorder: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Chest pain on left side: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Weaning off finished: took my last with evening meal. Can never have it again, has sent me round the bend well and truly. To be replaced tomorrow with paracetamol indefinitely: seems all I can take.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Psychosis Disorder: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Chest pain on left side: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Psychiatrist yesterday ordered rapid weaning off due to dysphoria, worsened tardive dyskinesia. Had already begun when dysphoria first reported on Monday (3 to 2 tablets). Suicidal. So now only on 1 tablet a day (evening meal) for 3 or 4 days, then replace with 8 paracetamol per day. Codeine preparations make me severely psychotic and paranoid, ibuprofen worsens chronic gastritis: is only analgesia available. Less powerful: let's hope it stops the severe chest pain left side and centrally, and emergency calls.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Chest pain on left side: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Duty doctor reinstated it due to 12 hours of severe disabling chest pain on left which paracetamol didn't affect. Removed pain within 90 minutes so giving it another go. Liver function blood test today to confirm duty Dr's diagnosis of liver damage or not. Will have to re-evaluate treatment depending on result. So far no significant side effects apart from minor gastric distress: had two doses, pain gone.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Ankylosing Spondylitis: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Excellent painkiller, well worth taking for severe pain. But be aware that if you take this over a long time period at a high dose, you cannot simply stop Tramadol - the withdrawal effects are nasty. But don't worry, you just have to taper-off your dose gradually over a numbers of weeks, and you will be okay.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Ankylosing Spondylitis: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Good pain relief but coming off tramadol after extended period was more difficult than I imagined - withdrawal effects from going cold turkey included insomnia, restlessness. If you gradually decrease the dose though its not a major problem.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I started taking tramadol for a different illness. I found that It has a positive side effect, ENERGY!!! it is better at taking my pain away then vicodin. the only other med that works better is percocet. But it does cause stomach issues and severe constipation. If you dont consume enough water, you begin to have migrains. That normally does not become an issue if you make sure to take it only as prescribed.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Constipation
