Common Side Effects of Tramadol
Before taking tramadol, tell your doctor if you have ever had an allergic reaction to tramadol or any pain medicine. Discuss with your doctor any health conditions you have or have had in the past. Your doctor will want to know if you have:
  • Liver or kidney disease
  • Breathing or lung problems
  • An infection
  • Depression or other mental illness
  • Stomach problems, including ulcers
  • Phenylketonuria (PKU)
  • A history of head injury or seizures
  • A history of drug or alcohol abuse
Tramadol is habit-forming. Take it only as directed. Taking more tramadol than your doctor allows, for even in one day, can result in respiratory depression or seizure. Never take more tramadol than what your doctor instructs you to.

If you are still having pain, let your doctor know so that he or she can adjust your dosage. Do not double up or skip dosages.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, or if you plan to become pregnant while taking tramadol. If you become pregnant while taking tramadol, notify your doctor right away.

Talk with your doctor about other medicines you may be taking, including over-the-counter medicines, herbal remedies, vitamins, and supplements. Some may have dangerous reactions with tramadol. You should also not mix tramadol with "street drugs" or drink alcohol while taking tramadol.

Tramadol may cause side effects, including feeling nervous, anxious, agitated, other changes in mood, and hallucinations. Talk with your doctor if you experience these side effects.

Other common side effects of tramadol include:
  • Dizziness
  • Constipation
  • Upset stomach
  • Dry mouth
  • Headache
  • Drowsiness
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Nervousness
  • Mild itching
  • Chills
  • Increased sweating
  • Nausea or vomiting
This is not a complete list. Tell your doctor about any unusual symptoms you experience while taking tramadol. Also, if any side effect becomes worse, won't go away, or worries you, contact your doctor.

Some side effects may be more serious and require immediate medical care. Seek help right away, or call 911 if an emergency, if you notice signs such as these while taking tramadol:
  • Signs of allergic reaction: itching or hives; swelling or tingling in the face, lips, mouth, throat, or hands; chest pain or tightness; or trouble breathing or swallowing
  • Extreme skin reaction: redness, peeling, or severe rash
  • Extreme light-headedness or fainting
  • Severe sleepiness
  • Seizures
  • Confusion
Report these or other alarming symptoms right away to a medical professional.

Never share tramadol with others, even if they tell you they have the same pain symptoms as you. Doing so is dangerous and could result in death. It is illegal to share prescription medicines with others, including tramadol.
