Ultram ER review by 34 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Ineffective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Pain relief from an infected cat bite wound
Dosage & duration:   200mg taken once daily for the period of 2 days
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   Levaquin, Promethazine
Reported Results
Benefits:   I was not able to ascertain any benefits from being treated with this medication. Its purpose was pain relief, and I did not experience any alleviation of my pain.
Side effects:   I did not experience any side effects from taking this medication.
Comments:   I was prescribed this medication after being seen by a doctor for a severely infected cat bite wound on the top of my left foot (which the doctor was concerned might become a systemic infection). The foot and my entire left leg were very painful (especially upon movement), so the doctor had me take Ultram ER to help relieve the pain. I was told to take 1 tablet daily as needed. I did as instructed for two consecutive days and did not have any relief from my pain. After I reported this to my doctor, she gave me a prescription for a stronger pain reliever (which did help).


Ultram ER review by 29 year old male patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Cervical Disk Degeneration and Lower Back Pain
Dosage & duration:   50mg every 6 hrs as needed taken 2-3 times a day for the period of been taking for 2 weeks now.
Other conditions:   Tinitus, Unable to sleep
Other drugs taken:   Ambien
Reported Results
Benefits:   Ive been taking Tramadol for 2 weeks now. Ive been taking vicodin and percocuet for 7 months due to Cervial disk degeneration and lower back pain. I have to admit I loved taking Vicodin and percocuet. The problem is that they would knock me out. Tramadol has been awesome. It takes 90% of the pain away and I feel like I actually have energy again. From reading previous comments it sounds like I take a lower dose. Im really happy about that cause if I get use to it then I can up my dose and not feel worried about it.
Side effects:   I have had no side effects so far. I hope it stays that way.
Comments:   Treating for neck, shoulder, arms, lower back, hip, thigh and knee pain.
