I’ve been taking Tramadol for a few years now with great success. The only hard part was getting a doctor to prescribe it to me. I took 100mg for a long time but after about 4 or 5 years my legs told me I needed more. My GP wouldn’t give me more so I had to go to a pain doctor. I now take 200mg and all is good. The hardest part was finding a doctor to prescribe it as they are afraid of it because it’s considered an opioid.

So far no. In fact just a couple weeks ago I thought I’d try taking less and went down to one 50mg tablet a couple hours before bed. The first night wasn’t bad but the second night my wife thought I was developing Parkinson’s I was twitching so much. The third night I went back to 200mg and that was the end of that experiment.
I took tramadol for years also. But I was not sleeping well, had disturbing dreams and was tired all the time. I have fibromyalgia and knew I needed a change. I am now taking lyrica..which stops restless legs and I sleep better.
Interesting on tramadol as when I take it I get pins and needles in my groin
I’ve been taking Tramadol for 10 years now. I started with 50mg but for the last three years I’ve been taking 200 mg. I’m not sure how quickly it started working but I’ve had good results and if I miss a time taking it I can tell right away but as soon as I go back all is good again. The hardest part is getting the drug. So many doctors are reluctant to prescribe it because it’s an opiate. I’ve tried many other things but this is my go to answer - it works.
