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

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
