Use extra strength Tylenol in tandem with Tramadol. It helps increase the potency of the Tramadol when my back pain is really bad. It is very effective.

I like these little bottles for throwing into my work bag. I hate being without tylenol or advil since I apparently am now prone to migraines these days.
