From this study (2 weeks ago):
I started losing my hair more when I started taking the tramadol for pain. I have lost quite a bit of hair since then and started balding on the top of my head. I don't know if it is hormonal or from all the medication I am on because I know that can cause hair loss also. My hair is also limp and lifeless and I have gained about 15 pounds since being on the tramadol. It is the only medication that helps with my pain and chronic anxiety caused by the Cymbalta so I don't know what else to do.

Hi! I am a 26yr old male. I saw this and seems like we are taking the same meds and I wanted to compare. I have been on tramadol for almost 3 years for herniated discs from playing football. I recently have noticed and heard that long term use affects testosterone levels, so I got bloodwork done...turns out I am below range on all levels...which sucks because I am fit (or was) and pretty big. So my doc prescribed testim 1% 50mg/day (as of yesterday) and I wanted to see how it affected you along with takign the tramadol. I dont have hair issues, but I have had weight gain and general feminization due to loss of testosterone....so gross and sad for me. Idk if you are male or female...but I would love to hear what the combo has done for you. If anyone else can chime in it would be great. (fyi..tramadol is a low dose opiate agonist for pain; testim is testosterone gel)

- Not a great experience
I was on norvasc for two months and had to go off because of severe swelling of feet and legs. Also rapid heart beat and very profuse sweating. it was horrible. It also raised my blood pressure. after going off BP dropped by @least 10 points both diastolic and systolic.
- Cymbalta side effects
This summer I was put on Cymbalta 65mg because of anxiety. Boy what a mistake (at least for me).
