  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Been taking this every day since last winter, helps to take the edge off, does not take the pain away, but definitely makes it more tolerable. Medicaid screwed up my paperwork, so going cold turkey on this and like four other meds. Not sure which withdrawals are from what, but I feel like hell. Pain through the roof, depression, exhaustion. Very difficult. Hope they get it fixed soon, though I am not sure which meds I will continue, I am afraid of this happening again, and I have been completely non-functional for over a week now.
Side effects: Dry throat, Dry mouth (xerostomia), Sleepiness, Difficulty thinking, Nausea, Headaches

Dec 16, 2009 (Started Apr 20, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Makes me nauseous, hence the naausea meds with it. Still nauseous, even with the meds, but bearable. Dulls the pain, or makes me stupid enough not to care. Do not like to drive or take the kids out by myself on this dose, as it makes me absent minded and makes it hard to concentrate. Not sure is this is the med or the fibro, but either way its annoying.
Side effects: Dry throat, Dry mouth (xerostomia), Sleepiness, Difficulty thinking, Nausea, Headaches

Advice & Tips: Takes the edge off for awhile, but gives me a wicked "hangover" headache when it wears off. makes me pretty nauseous and very tired, usually take it and go to bed.
Side effects: Dry throat, Dry mouth (xerostomia), Sleepiness, Difficulty thinking, Nausea, Headaches

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Before I began taking Tramadol, I had a difficult time getting through the day. I would spend most of the day either in bed or in a recliner. I just didn't have the strenght to do anything...I even had difficulty holding up my head. Tramadol has improved that. Although I cannot work full time and still require daily naps, I can at least get out of bed and do a little during th day.
Side effects: Dry throat, Dry mouth (xerostomia)
