    Just wanted to know what this was supposed to do for me. So far, it just seems to make me a little tired.

    I have taken this since I was on the Marshall Protocol. They said for me to have some prescription pain meds on hand. My experience is, of course, not everyones.

    The brand name Ultram gave me more energy.

    The generic tramadol made me sleepy.

    After taking it since about 2005, I am tapering down to 1/2 twice a day. I think it is causing a muscle in my neck to tighten up. So far I am ok at this amount but I don't have that much muscle pain.

    I have burning skin pain and I have taken klonopin at night for 20 years for that.

    I don't know if that helps you at all..but it is my 2 cents.
