This is false, although the author does state that tramadol does seem to be of benefit. Other medications are more useful than the opiods. Chronic pain is typical, and it is difficult to treat.

Re: painful neuropathy is readily treated with opiod analgesics

I have tried ultram and have found it to be a little rough in side-effects last month. I am a walking medical egnima in that not all meds work according to plan in me.

Also go to various websites to research the meds you are taking. IF you find that 5 that say the same thing and it's opposite what the docs are saying. Believe the sites.
