    I have been taking Ultram 50mg for quite some time now and I just saw that they are making an extended release, just curious to know if anyone has tried it and what were the results for pain relief. I think it would be nice to take one pill a day instead of dosing every 6 hours.

    Thanks,

    I have taken Ultram ER on two occasions. My doctor gave me a sample of it. I only take it when the pain is really bad. It has helped me on both occasions by taking the edge off. I did notice on the second occasion that it started to "wear off" after about 9 hours. The pain returned, although not quite as bad. I did not take another because it was at a level of pain that I could "tolerate"... who knows when I will be sick of trying to "tolerate" the pain. I have been ill for only 1 year. Hope this helps.
