Hi everyone. Hey, I've been taking Tramadol for fibro pain for 3 years now. It helps soooo much, and I just wanted to make sure that everyone out there knows about it. Now, everyone is different so, we have to keep that in mind. Tramadol is NOT a controlled substance so the dr. much more readily prescribes it, also, it doesn't have the abuse potential like the others, percocet, vicodin, ect..Like many drugs, a tolerance does develop a bit, but I haven't noticed that much. I take 100 millegrams twice a day. It's long acting too, which is great!! In fact, they have Ultram (tramadol) now that is extended release. It's much more expensive, and I prefer the regular, since I feel like I have more control over my pain that way. Tramadol actually gives me a boost in energy. However, then there is my Mom (her fibro is much different though), and it made her really tired. When I first started taking it it eliminated all my pain, now it takes most of the edge off. I'm sure that's due to tolerance. Sorry about the long spiel everyone. I meant to put this under "add a recommendation". I'm just surprised at how few fmrs know about this pain relieving drug, so I wanted to share it with you all. Hugs to all of you!!! And here is to chasing the pain away!!!! LindaF

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
