From this study (2 weeks ago):
Never a clot but newly prescribed medicine Pristiq and I have Factor V, Type 1 Diabetes, high cholesterol and use a fentanyl patch and these were all warnings on Pristiq. I take wellbutrin 300 and Zoloft and Prozac didn't work.
I see an endocrinologist, neurologist, family practice, pain management. My depression is because of pain. I've only been to one pain doctor and I must have a tolerance to opiates. I've tried oxycodone 15mg x many, dilaudid 8 mg x many, morphine 30 x many, Opana Er x many. Not all at once and always take prescribed amount but it never works. Been prescribed the same garbage for 6 years and have had pain epidurals and radio frequency ablations. Was pretty exited about laser surgery and then I was told they don't take my insurance when I have a BCBS PPO
I'm afraid doctors like me psychiatrist don't look atoll my medical history before prescribing things like Pristiq.

I am a 79 year old female who has been taking tramadol (prescribed by my Rheumetolgist) for about one month. Reently my feet and ankles started swelling. I could find nothing in the side effects of tramadol to cause this. I do have kidney disease but my family Dr. checks on this every 6 mo. and my last test four months ago was "a little high" but not enough to refer me to a kidney specialist. I'm going to stop the tramadol for a while to see what happens.

I also took this medication for 2 weeks. I had a pretty severe reaction leading to swollen feet, ankles, legs and from my elbows down to my fingers. My doctor also dismissed that it was due to this med even though I have NEVER had this happen to me. He gave me lasix to flush it out of my body and hydrocodone for pain. My question is how long did you experience these symptoms? It is unbearable!!! How long did yours last? Anything you could tell me to help me would be greatly appreciated.

I started taking Tramadol 5 times a day per my Rhuematologist. Within 2 weeks I couldn't even get my shoes on, my calves legs and feet were so swollen. I ask my pharmacist, my primary care doctor and Rhuematologist and they said they had never heard of swelling due to Tramadol use.
I can tell you personally if they had known of this and informed me when I told them it would have saved me 3 doctors visits and alot of pain.
I found out by myself I stopped using the Tramadol and within a few days noticed the swelling starting to go down. The people who make Tramadol should make this known as a side effect of Tramadol as no one seems to know this accept people who get it.

Same here.....terrible water retention in feet ankles from Tramadol. My doctor never equated the meds and the edema...but when I stop taking the meds the swelling goes down.
