Additional Thoughts
I have been taking this for about 3 months for Chronic Shoulder Pain. I did have my shoulder operated on for torn rotary cuff and bersitis infection. It has really helped and I only take 50 mgs in the morning, and 50 mgs at night as needed for pain. Sometimes I do not even need it, so I do not take it for 4 or 5 days at a time. It has helped tremendously with the pain I had but I am almost bask as new and my shoulder is getting better every day. I have not experienced any major side affects and have taken the medication as prescribed.

I hate this ultram with passion..my hubby is so addicted to it and can't get away from it.. and he has had 13 grand mal seizures from this drug.. Its horrible..and I hope to god it gets taken off the market.. It is a very addicting narcotic...

Additional Thoughts
the way this drug works..is when you start tqaking them..the next day you hurt even more so you take more and more of this meds until you start have really horrible seizures wondering if your spouse will make it.. Oh its the worst thing ever seeing your hubby look dead on the floor from a seizure. Please try something else..this is the worst drug ever.

nothing but good ones

Additional Thoughts
Since being on Ultram I have felt like a healthy regular person. I have increased energy and I have very limited pain if none at all. I have taken Ultram for many years now, and my doctor has informed me tonight that he wants me to get off of it. Why? I wish he would leave me alone. With him prescribing it I don't have to pay for it. Now I wonder about the online tramadol/Ultram I can order. Is it the same thing? P.S. You would never know that I was diagnosed with MS by looking at me.

Reason: MY husband was taking Ultram for chronic knee pain Date: 18 March 2008
Side Effects
My husband was taking it for chronic knee pain. He said it really helped control his knee pain. It also took away other little aches and pains

Additional Thoughts
My husband started taking Ultram about 3 years ago after having knee surgery. For the last year, I knew he was taking more than he was in the beginning. It was so easy to order online and could be here the very next day. Well, this past Saturday, my husband suffered a Grand Mal Seizure. Our 3 children and myself saw this happen. He stopped breathing and I adminstered rescue breathing. He was taken to the hospital via ambulance and was admitted for observation. He was told this was due to Ultram and that he should never take another one again. I ask the doctor would there be withdrawel symptoms and he said \"NO\" He would crave them but no actual withdrawel symptoms. My husband has not slept in three nights. When he lays down his whole body jerks and twitches. He cannot get comfortable. He is so totally not himself and it kills me to see him like this. I\'m afraid of what the next weeks hold. This is all because the doctor that first prescribed this and 2 other doctors that he had asked about Ultram all told him this was non-habit forming. I just want everyone to have this knowledge. Seeing my husband, whom I love so much, convulse from a seizure, stop breathing, and turning so gray that he looked dead, was the worst day of my life. Please do not use this drug for a long period of time. It is habit forming, it is dangerouse!!!!"
