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

    Moderate (for Pain)
  • side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
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.

Feb 26, 2010 (Started May 14, 2008)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Breakthrough pain)
  • side effects
    Moderate (caffeine interaction, Restlessness, Muscle cramps, Difficulty falling asleep)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: For pain relief this product works fairly quickly. It can cause one to be more addicted to things (ciggarettes, meds., etc.), itchy, restless, and cause dificulty falling asleep. With my fibromyalgia, I found taking it earlier in the day to be benificial, the restlessness helped me get out of bed during the day, and still able to fall asleep at night. Used along with 2400 gabapentin for moderately effective pain management.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Difficulty falling asleep, caffeine interaction, Muscle cramps, Restlessness

    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take this medication for help with my reflex sympathetic dystrophy. It is a good maintenance pain medication for me. I also have a crawling pain in my legs, that kind of pain the keeps you from being able to keep your legs still at night. These totally eliminate that problem, a big time unexpected benefit. I can take this as a generic with no bad repercussions.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It's very good for alleviating my depression, but only works for 4 or 5 days, then I begin to feel worse.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Tiredness

Jan 24, 2010 (Started Jan 22, 2010)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Depressed mood)
  • side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I've decided to try this pain medication for my depression. Opioid pain medicine has always alleviated my symptoms. Dependence issues are not important to me now because of the severity of my symptoms. I will be watching for tolerance problems while taking this medicine. Besides being an opiate, Tramodol is said to have SSRI properties as well...
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Tiredness
