    Moderate (for pain)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for restless feeling in legs)
  • Side effects
    None

    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take

Advice & Tips: Watch how often you increase your dosage. I have been on Ultram for over 5 years without having major problems or increases as it is effective for what I take it for, mostly the side effects and restless leg syndrome. My doctor told me when he prescribed it that it only works for about 50% of the people, the rest could be taking water so if it does nothing at the first dose, skip taking it altogether.
Cost: < $25 monthly
