  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Works so-so for pain, but must take (2) 50 mg tablets to feel any benefit. The side effects are constipation and major dizziness, both of which are fairly severe. I would estimate only having to take (2) tablets for pain an average of maybe 5 times per month.

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

Advice & Tips: It really helps with the pain with out it being a narcotic. It still makes me sleepy but it is much easier on my system than the narcotics that I have taken in the past. I can feel a big difference when I don't take it. The pain increases and mobility is harder.
