Please clarify: I'm trying to guess what you're asking and not having much luck? Are you asking about the value of tramadol as a pain medication? As a neurologist, I can tell you that there are better and safer drugs as well as interventions for pain management than tramadol which is a synthetic opiate and carries substantial risks of not just addiction but seizure episodes and CAUSING chronic headaches.

Don't panic: Tramadol (brand ultram) is a pain medication only distant relation to opiates such as codiene, morphine, oxycodone, oxycontin. The withdrawal syndrome generally is not as bad as those, but each persons chemical makeup differs. 'i've been there before' is pertinent; addictive predisposed? Suggest calling local er, where drugs r 'their thing'' nd er may call poison control center. Or just go there.
