I have used Ultram on and off for some years. I've also taken strong opiates however they caused dependency. Ultram makes me dizzy and causes horrible ringing in my ears. Wondered if I'm the only one with these side effects.

I was prescribed this for back pain. I had shingles and was left with nerve damage. It helps. It does not take my pain away completley but it helps. It is additive. I try and not take more than 3 a day. I do have a stimulator inplanted in by back also for pain. I do not like taking the med however it does help. I can function with my daily activities to an extent.

Comment:
Ultram is one of the weakest pain relievers that actually requires a prescription. It is a joke. Over the counter Ibuprofen works MUCH better. Don't waste your money. If you have real pain and this is all your doctor gives you then you should find a new doctor that will take your pain seriously.
