  • Tramadol is the ONLY medication that has EVER incredibly improved my Depression!!! It acts exactly as an SNRI without the side effects.

    Chronic pain
  • Don't take caffeine with the drug or within an hour of taking the drug. Caffeine can enhance the side effects (can also make the medicine work faster too, however).

  • Didn't seem to get any relief or uphoria. Took it for years & had weight gain during this time. If it helped my mood I didn't notice.

  • Take with food as it may cause nausea on an empty stomach. Lower doses seem to act as a "pick-me-up", while higher doses cause drowsiness. Split your daily dose accordingly. ABSOLUTELY causes physical dependency after regular, long-term use. The withdraw is more mild than other opioids though, more uncomfortable than anything. Recommend stepping down over a period of weeks rather than stopping the medication altogether.

  • I have peripheral neuropathy, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and am prone to tendonitis. Tramadol was first prescribed for my by my neurologist, probably six years ago. I normally only take it once a day, as opposed to the prescribed dose of twice a day, which is probably why I don't have too many side effects.

  • Remember not to abuse the dosage recommended by your Doctor, it is an addictive drug and dserves the utmost respect for your Doctor's advise on how and when to take this medication. For me I only use on days when needed and always try Ibuprofen 600mg First.
