- 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.

- 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.
- Shortness of breath after taking levothyroxine for 8-10 yrs.
I have been experiencing shortness of breath lately when taking the levothyroxine. If I stop taking it for a couple of days my shortness of breath is pretty much gone.
