  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Positive benefit included being able to function seemingly well on Tramadol. I could drive to school, sit attentively through classes, and felt a burst of energy after the pain subsided. I am now relying only on Vicodin for pain, but I am not sure how long that will last.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I have found that this painkiller is much better than Vicodin. I am able to study, go to class, drive, and continue my daily activities while taking Tramadol without feeling "loopy" or necessarily "high." If it were not for Tramadol, I would never have been able to get through a dual Master's degree. With that said, the downfalls of this drug is severe constipation and inability to urinate (I would have the urge, but then when I try to relieve myself, nothing comes). These symptoms are not too tough to deal with though - and they probably kept me from overusing or ever abusing Tramadol.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Back pain: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Aching burning throbbing body pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Cost: < $25 monthly

Oct 24, 2010 (Started Aug 02, 2010)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Back pain: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Aching burning throbbing body pain: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I had run out of codeine when I 'borrowed' my wife's tramadol and was surprised to find that it dealt with my fatigue immensely which I had been suffering from quite badly- when I don't take it, the fatigue returns so it is clear the positive effect it is having on me. Having less fatigue means I am now able to function in day to day activities whereas before, I would spend most of the day in bed.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I usually take this first thing in the morning and rarely ever need to take any more. If I take this after 12pm, it generally stops me from sleeping for a period of 12 hours. Eg. take at 2.30pm forget about sleeping until 2.30am. When I dont take it, I generally spend the day in bed!
