    I take tramadol. I took hydrocodone once and it make me so, so sick.  I don't know which one is better for pain. I imagine it depends on the individual's own body chemistry.  Just wanted to let you know that I do take Tramadol, and it does work for me. Best Wishes, V

      Thanks so much.. I'm getting off hyrdrocodone and my doctor has put me on tramadol.. for back pain, that's been severe most of my adult life.  I also have severe arthritis in my shoulders, so the mornings are the most difficult -- and that's when I take it.  Thanks for letting me know
