Is Ultram a good medication for chronic pain? What kind of pain is it normally used for?
Has anyone used this before? I think I was prescribed it for back pain years ago when I crushed a couple of discs. I'm trying to find a medication that won't fog my brain or make me sleepy. I know...tall order to fill. lol
Yes, Ultram can be a good medication for some people for controlling moderate to severe pain. It is more of a non sedating, narcotic-like pain medication. With Ultram you experience a lot less side effects usually than with other narcotics such as Loratab, Percocet, or Tylenol 3. Although, Ultram still can hold the risk of dependency it is not as common because the medication is not as strong. Ultram personally didn't work to control my pain but I've known a lot of people who was helped by it.
I recommend you try Ultram to see if it's lower narcotic-like properties could work in helping to control your pain.
