So I finally was prescribed Tramadol 50 mg. First I took with my night time meds and it kept me awake 🤔🤦 So when do you take it? Do you take it daily in the morning or just when you have excruciating pain.
You go girl! Make sure you don't do too much too soon. I did my hips, abs, neck and side stretches. I have already marked Monday on my calendar for going to the track!

I have been on tramadol for some time now. I started on 50mg twice a day along with Gabapentin the changed to Pregabalin. I am now on Pregabalin 125mg twice a day and Tramadol 100mg four times a day. I do still have pain and it is constantly there in my back and has now spread up my back. I don't know if this is still fybromyalgia or if it is something else. When I phone my GP and say the word pain then it is blamed on fybromyalgia no appointment or anything to investigate it. I am told that I am on the maximum dose I can have. Try the pain management team. My Trazodone for depression and Hydroxyzine help me get some sleep at night. I hope this helps you.
I have been taking tramadol for at least 15 years and it still works well for me. I have even cut back on it in the summer. But I need the full dose in the winter. When I first started taking it, it made me tired. but back then I was taking 150 mg. twice a day. Also still taking Tramadol ER at bedtime and that still helps me. Nothing has ever helped me like tramadol.
Stephanie75 is correct. If you take it everyday, eventually it doesn't work, so they'll up your dose, over and over. I was on it for 8 years, got up to 10 pills, then said this is enough! Took me two years to step down out of it too. I also learned it gives you residual migraines. The second time a doctor put me on it, I used it only for painful flare ups, but I found that it just wasn't as successful so I stopped. I also found that it jazzed me up, so they paired it with amitriptyline at night, taking only one tramadol before bed. I continued to battle sleep so they added Ambien. Eventually it started making me itch, so I stopped it completely, as well as stopping both Ambien and amitriptyline. I just decided pills are not the best way to go. I still take promethazine for nausea from migraines and use CBD oil and T-relief for most the part, but they just knock it down a little bit. Meditation is the way I handle most flare ups. I will use half an oxycodone for the very worst migraines still, but even for my rotator cuff surgery, I'm not taking pain meds. Using ice instead.
