I don't know if that's the case for tramadol @A MyFibroTeam Member I lived through a horrible experience with my deceased husband and Loratab After 6 Liratab's a day quit working they switched him to morphine and all he did was sleep and that lead to his death I take Tylenol 3 Three or four times a week on my bad days I feel pain pills in general should be used as sparingly as possible But I also strongly nelieve we have to keep moving and pushing I am very surprised at how well mm works I have fewer bad days I'm trying to figure out how much I need now
