I am using her dosage from after her vaginal procedure, which was 1/4 of a 50mg tab, every 8-12 hours (she is just under 20 lbs). I really just need it before meals, which seems to trigger the tremors right now. I'm using that and some sucralfate to see if it makes a difference. She seems to be tolerating it, but she's only had two doses so far, just about to give her another.

LOL, not sure she is getting the full dose, these are Max's pills that expired last March. But it seemed to work very quickly last night when she was tremoring and feeling very bad.

laugh Hoping you finally can get some answers on Thursday hugging Coopie had it after his hip surgery but to be honest I didn't notice any dramatic difference with him.

I've taken it too (myself) and it works well. Generally, for me, within 30-60 minutes. Two pills (100mg) made me pretty darn loopy.

How's Miss Jazz doing on the tramadol - any discernable difference yet?

For Levi it kicks in fully in about 30 minutes...he is now up to two twice a day (to help his arthritic front cope with his DM rear) and I (he) would not be doing well at all without it...
