After getting steroid injections about every 4 to 6 months, my new pain Dr. asked me to try Tramadol , 50 mg. every 8 hours. Along with the anti-inflammatory, Mobic, So I did, & I'm feeling better than I have in the past 3 yrs.! there are no side effects & you can take as many as 8 per 24 hrs. Wish a Dr. had perscribed them years ago. They are not addictive either!View Thread
Hi, I have been getting steroid injections for the last few years about every 3 to 6 months. Finally the pain Dr. asked if I had tried Tramadol & I hadn't, so now I'm taking 50mg about once evry 8 hours along with Mobic (anti-inflammatory)7.5 mg twice per day. Believe it or not the Tromadol has releived my pain so much, I can hardly believe it! I am not going to get any more steroid injections now, if I can help it. ask your Dr. if you can try this.View Thread
