Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
High dose tramadol (max)for 4 years for back pain. Minor porblems first month then worked well for three years. Fourth year became problematic with progressive problems including being drowsy, fatigued and vertigo type symptoms. Dosage decreased (300mg)six months ago resulted in increased alertness. Started Trazadone at that point to be able to sleep. Vertigo escalating noticably in recent (two) months, progression halted/slowed with drop in tramadol dosage. Now off meds but no further improvement so far(7 days). Ibuprophen (800mg)used intermittently when pain aggravated.
From this study (13 months ago):
If taken at night, the next morning I feel sick to my stomach, bt not when taken during the day?
From this study (1 year ago):
The most severe is the swelling in my legs which hurts, memory loss, blurred/double vision, depression/ lassitude, nausea, gastritis, dry skin.
