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.
