Aug 31, 2018 · Tramadol Helps with Exhaustion in Neuropathy

PS On the flip side. After taking 100-150 mg of Tramadol every day for 12 years, except during pregnancy and nursing, I do feel withdrawal symptoms if I do not take Tramadol on a low pain day. I feel like I’m going to jump out of my skin almost. I hate that feeling! It makes me think that this drug definitely causes dependency, which I do not like. However, I have never had to go up on my dose once.

Aug 31, 2018 · Tramadol Helps with Exhaustion in Neuropathy

I have SLE and have been on tramadol for 12 years. I also notice that it gives me an increase in energy and productivity. I told my rheumatologist this years ago and he said, “That’s weird.” As a person with a fatigue rendering illness, this “weird” side effect has helped me push through after school activities with three kids when my energy felt nonexistent. I’m not sure if it is because my pain takes my energy or the serotonin boost that tramadol gives. Someone with a better scientific mind should definitely do some research!
