    When it comes to pain meds… I've been on several of them. Tramadol is the only non-addictive pain med I've been on. I take 200mg once daily when needed.  If I'm having a good day and don't need them, then I don't take them. It's a great pain med when used correctly. I don't see how people can get high on them. I don't get a high from them.

    I thought I would chime in with my findings: I can't take opiates or their synthetics because they don't do anything for pain, and they also cause major urine retention. A doctor suggested I try Tramadol for an upcoming wisdom tooth extraction, and when I found out my dad had some from something that happened earlier this year, I took one to see what effects it would have. I was surprised to find that it took away all of my depression, but it didn't make me feel high or like I wasn't myself; I was still me, I just didn't have any negative thoughts, and couldn't even force myself to dwell on negative subjects (I tried, just to see if it was possible). It also helped with my OCD, by taking away the obsessive thoughts I usually have.
    Unfortunately, it caused urine retention, and rather painful itchiness, so I won't continue using the drug. I have no idea how it would be for pain, but I don't think it would help with that either. I should also add that I only took one 50mg pill, and the effects have been with me well over 12 hours.

    Thank you. If people are taking certain anti-depressants like Effexor, they must NOT take Tramadol. People, read the fine print on ALL your meds. Ask your Dr or a pharmacist. I repeat, Effexor + Tramadol = HEALTH RISK.

    People take it because it actually works as an anti-depressant, and that's within the normal dose, not excessive use.   It's similar to Effexor but works much better.  The doctors definition of abuse is any use they don't make money off.   It's also much cheaper.

    I was prescribed tramadol for ear infection pain in lieu of norco (hydrocodone+acetaminophen) I think because the doctor (not my usual doctor) didn't believe me that I had pain for a mid-ear infection (told me to take ibuprofin) my own doctor prescribed tramadol via email. I have to say – the effect is different for pain than norco, it does take much longer to take effect and the effect is more gradual. the pain isn't' replaced with a euphoric feeling like it is with norco (for me) but instead just the absence of pain. the type of drowsiness is dfferent as well, on norco i would feel 'drunk' like dizzy, and uneasy, spontaneous and jittery; on tramadol i'm normal but have near-narcoleptic nods every half hour or so – acutally falling completely asleep at at my desk. 
    The sleep when i actually do go to sleep is different as well – under norco i have terrible terrible nightmares and sleep spells that last under an hour and am constantly waking up in cold-sweats, with dreams that are terrifying with repetition like tetris patterns and scary scenarios where i fear for my safety from childhood foes, former bosses, etc.. 
    on tramadol, the sleep is long and sustained and i wake easily, i remember no nightmares, in fact i remember long very long dreams of strange scenarios that are somewhat foreign to me. living in houses i couldn't have conceived of, working at jobs i've never heard of, etc. 
    Luckily i've never abused or come close to abusing pain medication (I have never even used an entire prescription bottle) but I will for sure ask for tramadol the next time I have something requiring pain meds.

    I'm 70 and one of the "gifts" of aging I've received is Myalgia.  My doctor has prescribed Tramadol and I take one 50mg tablet in the morning with breakfast on a daily basis.  I can't imagine NOT having it, as the pain I get from Myalgia is unbearable.  I don't want to get "high"–I just want to have a quality life.  There may be alternatives which would allow me to not have to take this med every day, however I've not found any–although I am doing my research.  My neighbor, well-meaning, came up with some New Age bullshit about digging for emotional stuff that could be causing the Myalgia.  Really!  Maybe I should meditate on my Spirit Guide!  ~gimme a f****n ba-RAKE!

    Tramadol is 1) a weak opioid, 2) a prodrug to a moderately strong opioid (converted by the liver), 3) an serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), much like Effexor, and 4) a serotonin releasing agent (SRA), a bit like MDMA (AKA "Ecstasy"). It's a very strange drug indeed.

    I disagree. It has a Serotonin affect, not covered by healthcare = saves money. N not breakable = addicts don't want it. Scary how average Joe can get addicted without any… Any prior addictions. Pharma dollar maker = at the expense of Chronicpain sufferers. Sad

    The potential for Tramadol dependency should not be underestimated. It's a gateway drug. It shouldn't be prescribed to people with a history of addiction/addictive personalities. It requires supervision and should only be given short-term (weeks max). In prescribing regime, I would say the 3-4x re-dosing daily (as commonly advised) is a bad idea and increases risk of dependency.Tramadol has a very long half-life and is very potent in opiate-naive patients.50mg once daily is sufficient for many.

    Dr Bill is right. I've struggled with Tramadol dependency for years. I've learnt a lot about this drug. In opiate naive users, it has classic opiate effect, but the opiate effect is fairly weak compared to other opiates and wears off quickly as tolerance develops in a matter of weeks.However, like Dr Bill said, Tramadol has other effects which are hard to define and break free from. It's like a powerful anti-depressant and energiser, and it's these effects which lead to dependency for many.
