  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: None
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I don't know how this treatment got put under the "depression" treatment category. I can't delete that although I would like to. I ONLY use it sparingly for Fibromyalgia and I find even a small dosage causes a headache which rather defeats the purpose. Not as useful as it was before.

Oct 10, 2011 (Started Aug 05, 2008)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2 x 500 mg-2.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I believe I may have developed a tolerance to Lortab and it does not work as well as it might have in the past. It helps tremendously for pain and I take as few as I am able 1-2 a day typically. Frequency depends on activities. It is helpful when I struggle with diarrhea because it slows my bowel down. I notice no impairment whatsoever and can function fine.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Stomach upset

  • Side Effects: None

Advice & Tips: If taking this med for a long period of time and even though the med was never abused, it is living hell getting off of it. Please do it slowly and not cold turkey. I only take it now when I have an extremely high level of pain that the Tramadol does not get rid of.
