Tramadol (Ultram)

Tramadol is the generic name of a drug used to treat moderate to severe chronic pain. Tramadol, also known by the brand name Ultram, is an opiate agonist drug which alters the way that the body interprets pain. Tramadol works similarly to narcotic pain relieving medications. Tramadol is available in an extended release form to provide longer pain relief. Tramadol may be prescribed to manage the chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other conditions. Tramadol may cause seizures in some people, along with a number of other side effects. Tramadol may be habit-forming and may cause withdrawal symptoms if the medication is suddenly stopped.

I was taking Tramadol for about the last 9 months. I have now discontinued it as I started having side effects from it such as sweats, dizziness and nausea. I would not recommend this to a friend.1/17/2012 at 06:55 PM
