Tramadol-Anyone else experience this?

I am on Tridural, which is ER Tramadol in Canada.

I am finding that I am hardly ever hungry, and then when I do eat, 3/5 times I don't keep it down.

I'm just wondering if these symptoms will go away or not. I've only been on this for three weeks.



  • definately talk to the doc about this. It may be that you are just not going to be able to tolerate the med. I would think that after 3 weeks your system would be as adjusted to it as it is going to get. Best to check with your doc though.
  • with painintheback. It hasn't effected my appetite at all.

  • I was on Tramadol for a very long time and never had any side effects....I don't remember that I had any loss of appetite but I am not a big eater anyways. When I switched to the Ultram ER I had a lot of side effects, none of which I liked.....it felt like I had the flu 24/7. I am now off of it after a horrible w/d....I now take Darvocet and it agrees much better.

  • i have been on tramadol for ten years, when i first started taking it made me itch alot, doc said try to stick with it and the itching will go away well he was right three days no itching my only side affect now is that along with helping my pain some it does give me energy so i don't ever take it after 12 noon for it will keep me up at night and i don't need no extra help with that. good luck
  • My Doctor said it was OK to take these meds together so I did & all hell broke loose. Short fuse temper & lots of sleeping image:)" alt=">:)" height="20" /> Anybody have the same affect?

  • how many milligrams a day? Dizziness, nausea and vomiting are all on the 'normal' side effect list. They should go away after far less than 3 weeks, but for some of us, certain pain meds just never sit well with us for whatever reason. Maybe this is one of those meds that won't work out for you.

    Please see your doctor, 3 weeks of throwing up food every other meal doesn't sound right, and we can only guess on here... Hope you feel better!

  • I'm on 200mg once a day. I'll go see my doc once he's back, he is on vacation for another two weeks. On the bright side, I'm losing the 10lbs that i put on when on steriods.
  • 200mg a day should be ok; I had to ask just because if somehow they messed up and put you on, say, 900mg a day or 1200 (300mg x 3 or 4) then you'd have some problems just from the dosing. I had a dr. prescribe me 6 X 200mg er pills a day! Needless to say, I didn't take more than 2 a day. That's why I asked though.

    Losing weight can be a huge plus when it takes pressure off of your back; sorry it's from discomfort and nausea!
  • That Tramadol is similar to some of the SSI type anti depressants. While I was on it I did loose my appetite at first and if combined with any caffene I got super energized.

    Just my $.02
