      I have had chronic pain issues for most of my adult life. I don’t usually require medication beyond what I can pick up over the counter at the local drug store, but occasionally I need something stronger. On a few such occasions, I went to the doctor hoping for something I am familiar with and that my body is used to (such as Vicodin, or Percocet), and was instead given a prescription for a drug called Ultram.

      Apparently, Ultram is a drug commonly prescribed for mild-moderate pain, and is thought to be less habit forming than narcotic based pain killers. Ultram is also sometimes called Tramadol, and from what I understand, is a non-narcotic class of pain


      reliever. For me, it is also a sure-fire way to get me to throw up and or get severe stomach cramps! It only took me a few doses to discover the correlation between how awful I felt and this new medicine. Once I figured out it was the Ultram making me sick, I never took it again and flushed the rest of the bottle down the toilet.

      Not only did I get sick to my stomach from taking the 50 miligram Ultram tablets, but I also experienced dull, nagging headaches the day after taking the pills. Sometimes the headache would come before I even went to bed for the evening right after taking the medicine, making it hard ...


      • to fall asleep.

        What’s more, I didn’t notice any marked improvement in my pain! Not one little bit. In fact, with the stomach issues and headaches I feel the drug caused, I credit Ultram with making me feel ten times worse than I did when I went to the doctor seeking help. That is not the outcome I aim for when spending good money at the doctor, and then waiting at the pharmacy for a prescription he or she says will make me feel great!

        Now, everyone responds differently to different medications, and I’m not saying Ultram doesn’t work for many people. It must work for some, because it is a very common and fairly popular drug. But for

        me, I have no desire to ever take it again. If Ultram were the last pain medication on Earth, and I had a broken leg, I would likely refuse it because of how awful it made me feel in the past.

        I’m not one to ignore side effects. If a drug makes me feel worse after taking it than I did before I started, I’m likely going to stop taking it. This drug fit that description.

        I can’t recommend or not recommend this medication to readers of this review, only your doctor and you can make that decision. But I cannot tolerate what this particular medication does to my body, and I can handle much stronger drugs with no problem.
