I have never been on loratab but tramadol
does help the pain. I have been on it for the past two years. However it is very hard to get off of. I recently have been trying to cut back/quit taking them and have been having the hardest time. If I new this before I ever took my first tramadol
pill I would have never ever taken them. Please for you own sake do not consider tramadol
as a pain management solution.
