  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
    After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.
  • Mom died of stomach blockage while on tramadol
    my mom was taking tramadol for hip pain. she went in the hospital for a hip replacement and died 3 days after the surgery in the hospital from an intestinal blockage
  • Using tramadol with anti-depressants
    Using Tramadol with Anti-depressants

    I was taking Tramadol for pain instead of Endone to cut out the opiates as well as my usual anti-depressant. After about 6 months of feeling dizzy spells and nausea I stumbled across information that these two medications should not be mixed. After all of the extensive tests they did to find out why I had these symptoms, I informed my Doctor of what I had discovered. Much the their embarrassment, they realised I was correct and immediately took me off the tramadol. I just thought I would share this information in case any one else is going through what I did.
  • No noticeable effects
    No noticeable effects when used together. Tramadol dose 50-100 mg's four times a day.

  • I have several severely degenerated discs in my lower back. While on Tramadol, almost everything is fine. Pain was almost completely gone, mood was uplifted, and beside of a couple of unexplained mood swings, I really thought this drug can get me overcome the years of chronic pain I had.

    Several days after I started treatment with 300 extended release tablets, I started to develop several symptoms, including severe itch all over my body, especially on my head and face, I got hemorrhoids even though I never had those, and the mood swings would happen more often.

    Three times I went off the drug, and not more than 24 hours after each cessation experienced severe depression, severe flu-like symptoms including high fever, weakness, headache, muscle pain and dizziness. The first two times I didn't know these symptoms were caused because I stopped taking Tramadol. I was genuinely bewildered at my state of mind and strange illness. The third time I connected the dots. The hardest of all is the depression, I am an uplifted mood kind of person in my everyday life, never had a severe depression or suicidal thoughts. Tramadol withdrawal was the hardest thing I ever went through in my life.

    The symptoms last for 2-3 days. Fortunately, I did not develop an addiction to this drug, probably because I took it for relatively short periods of time.

    After surveying the internet about Tramadol, I found many MANY people that got addicted to this drug, and could not go through the INSANELY hard withdrawal symptoms.

    TRAMADOL IS DANGEROUS and 100% DOES NOT WORTH IT - KEEP AWAY AT ALL COSTS.

    We should form a class action suit against companies selling Tramadol under the "Uncontrolled Substance" umbrella.

    the effects of Taking Trazadone for me at 61 is extrodinary. Incontinence, poyuria, nocturnia (3 liters per nite) constant awakening at nite (5-7 x)I have now waken (1st day off trazadone) at 12:30am and 4:am and cannot got to sleep, again. I have tried Valium and found it "wear" out. It has a GREAT half life that is 2 days to 40 days or more. Given that life of that drug it is the easier than any (Xanax is horrible)To stor an alternative but will continue with the VALIUM AT 20mG PER EVE.
