    I was prescribed Ultram for pain after a horrific kitchen mishap resulted in half the skin being torn from the thumb of my dominant hand. The drug afforded me absolutely no relief from the blinding pain, but did keep me awake and vomiting for the day and I half I lasted before throwing it in the trash.

I have taken Norco for 5 plus years but now Doctors are under a lot of pressure not to prescribe adequate amounts of narcotic pain relievers to ease suffering. I still take Norco also but have been able to cut my daily intake (of Norco) in HALF since I also take U ... Show Full Comment

    Enabled me to come off oxycodone. Didn't t completely relieve pain but 100 mg helps a lot. Does keep me awake at night unlike the condones.
