I took 100mg tramadol last night and I'm sure I owoke during the night I was shaking,  I'm sure I awaoke like 6 or 7 hours later, and was shaking.

not sure it may have been a dream maby is shaking a seizure? I just can't remember. Been taking this for a couple of months now without any other problems.

It may have been a dream as I have had some very strange dreams.

Thank you

    Hey Jon,

    Top of the morning sir! If you have been experiencing unusual side effects, I would have a talk with my doctor A.S.A.P! Personally I wouldn't recommend this because it's a semi synthetic opioid used to replicate an the opiate effect. Your body is not made to process synthetic chemicals. I have read that it can increase the risk of seizeurs. Please be careful and proceed with caution, all the best to you!

    Hi t,

    Well I have deffinatly not been taking too much I only take it when I'm deaperate. Most I've taken is probably 300mg in a day. 

    Mostly 100 in the evening  when I'm desperate

  • I understand dealing with breakthrough pain (the pain tunnel) can be really difficult and make anyone desperate for relief. Have you had any history of seizeurs/shaking in the past before using this ? Or did you start noticing these symptoms after you were prescribed and began taking the medication? Please let us know!

    No only reaction as a really small sore on my lip

    I have had tremors slight ones which is a.side effect.

  • If this all happened after you started taking tramadol or ultram I would stop and talk to your doctor right away! Everyone's situation and body is different,if this is giving you negative side effects please ask if you can try something else for pain.

  • Hi t

    Hope your good today, spoke with my doctor today, she said it could be an interaction with my anti.depression meds, said if it happens again would pit me.on something else.

    Could have just been a dream as these are.opoids.
