    I take tramadol and use to take ultram they do not feel the same.
    is it a ssri with tylenol or what? What is the problem if you are having pain. What are your side effects?
    When i took ultram i would get a little boost in energy the tramadol seems to be the opposite. Does that make any sense?

    Yes, it's the generic and I have heard it works differently from regular.

    It took an hour and ten minutes to work on me. Then it was okay for about two hours, but it did start to make me sleepy. Then it started to work the opposite and gave me racing brain where I couldn't focus on anything and couldn't sleep cause it snapped me awake every minute. I don't want to take it again. But when it worked, it got me out of the bad nerve pain.
