Anyone know roughly how long it takes for it to start working?

When Does Tramadol Start Working?

Got this googling it.

In healthy adults, pain relief is felt almost immediately if Tramadol is administered locally via intra-dermal injection (through the skin). And Tramadol absorption is similarly rapid in oral liquid doses.

Tramadol levels in the blood peak 2 hours after taking a 100 mg oral dose. In clinical studies, the onset of pain relief was faster with a combination formula of tramadol hydrochloride and acetaminophen (brand name Ultracet) than Tramadol alone. Onset of analgesia (pain relief) occurred in less than one hour. However, it takes 2 days to reach steady-state concentrations of Tramadol in the blood at a dosing rate of four times per day.

As stated before Tramadol works differently for every person. Some people register no pain relief from Tramadol, even after days of taking it and especially if they are taking other opioid pain pills at the same time. Other people feel immediate local pain relief, especially when Tramadol is injected under the skin before dental surgery.

Thanks Elvi! I was able to use some keywords in your info to narrow this down to dogs:
http://books.google.com/books?id=Ob1PAQA...d=0CBEQ6AEwAjgK

IF I read that correctly on my phone screen, it says there is first evidence of it in the blood after 9.5 min???, 1.5 hrs to peak.

Great, thank you!

Chama was on that until she had a bad reaction to it. It worked immediately.

I've taken it @ 50mg. It works well. However, neither my sister and I can take it without having a hangover from hell headache that has to wear off, no advil will touch it.

Thanks everyone - I'm doing a trial with Jazz, to see if there is a pain component going on with her. We know she has inflammation, so I didn't want to use metacam.

I hope she tolerates it, at least for the short term, and I really hope she doen't have any of those weird symptoms that further make her feel bad frown

Buddy used to get an occasional tramadol when he was still doing therapy work.

He seemed to also get immediate relief.

Hope it helps.

I don't know whether to wish for a pain component for Jazz or not, so I just hope you get clear results that help her crossedfingers
