Hi, Seasons and welcome to the family. I wasn't given Ultram for FMS, I was rx it for my first and second bout w/ Shingles. The first time I had Shingles I was given several meds, including Ultram, to help w/ the pain. No problem. The second time I got hit w/ Shingles (about 3 months after first bout) I was given the same meds. The only one that caused me a prob was Ultram. I was sick as a dog, dizzy, unable to stand or move till about 6-7 hrs after med was taken. I have been told by several drs. that I should take it for the pain of FMS and OA, but I just can't. I have had some meds that cause a prob first time I use them, some, the second time I have been given them. I have a lot meds I can't take, and only a few I can take. I hope it can help you. Good luck.
God bless. Alice.
