Comment:
DO not take this drug. I took it for the 1st time & has been experiencing severe nausea & vomiting, lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, & headache for the last 24 hours. I took it on a full stomach also. I have never had these side affects after taking medicine. I will not be taking anymore of these pills. Prescription pain pills are too dangerous anyway.

Comment:
I have back pain after having back surgery five years ago. I don't have it often, but when I do, I need pain medication for the breakthrough pain. Tramadol does not work as well as hydrocodone-acetaminophen (Lortab/Norco). To me, it's better than Tylenol/ibuprofen but not as good as Lortab. I generally have to take 2 tablets to get relief.

This drug is the worst thing I have ever taken the doctors told me it wasnt addictive but it is worse than heroin and it is also a type of mood altering drug as well so when you come off it you get two types,of withdraws one opioid and one mood altering so it is very hard to kick and it takes as long as 10 to 15 days to get off and the doctors don't know how it works but they just tell you it ...

Neck injury partial collapse in c4 and c5 with arthritis already set in upon discovery. No surgery...long recovery....this was the best form of pain management for my personal experience. I was able to function. At first I took 3-4 per day now as I have made very good recovery I use prn.

Comment:
By itself it is about as effective a peeing on a wild fire. But My Dr has me taking it along with hydro codon and it makes the norco work better and last longer so I'm taking less of it and only need twice a day instead of four
