Tramadol effects on liver include elevate liver enzymes, hepatitis and liver failure. So always take it under a medical supervision.

BooBoo1 Was just prescribed Ultram for severe prolonged Sciatica pain. Any precautions pertaining to other meds, natural supplements, or diet tha one should be aware of, when taking this drug? Thanks for any help! ;)

Ultram can cause interactions with ceratain drugs. It is advisable not to take Ultram while you are intoxicated (drunk) or taking any of the following: alcohol or street drugs, narcotic pain medicine, sedatives or tranquilizers, or medicine for depression, anxiety, or mental illness.

I have been taking tramadol for about 6 years. I feel it has got me by the balls. It is the hardest drug I have ever tried to get off. I would like to know if it messes up your matabilisum. I have no energy at all. I don't do any-thing. I have tried a few times to quit on my own and even when that didn't work I went to treatment. Please some-one let me know how to get off this very dangerous drug. I am 50 years old and have lost all my energy. I used to love to exercise and work. Now I stay home and do nothing. I have gained 45 pounds in 15 months. I know this is terrible. My husband cooks cleans and works. I help him with nothing. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!

Tramadol can cause malaise, tremors, fatigue and drug abuse and drug dependence. Do not stop taking this drug and consult your doctor to shift to some other pain killers like non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs.

I take two 50mg tramadol tablets a day,one in the morning and one in the evening.It has helped me with my fibromyalgia better than anything,I've tried.Have been taking it for almost three years.I take 1mg lorazapam at night for sleep.This is all I take,other than my vitamins in the morning.Wonderful drug for me.

I just started taking tramadol and started experiencing severe stomach pain that radiated up through my right chest and neck. My doctor had me take blood test and wait in his office for the results. My ALT was 396 and my AST 272. So, I guess the answer is it can. My appt. was for my asthma being out of control and I happened to mention I thought the tramadol for upsetting my stomach. Thankfully I mentioned it and that my Dr. was smart enough to make me get blood test or I might have continued on.

I also take both tramadol and panadeine forte but recently went on interferon for hep c and the whole time my ggts never went below 300 i was led to believe it was due to the drugs so after researching have found both to have severe effects on the liver when taken over long periods of time and they should not be used together. the paracetamol in panadeine alone has a bad effect on the liver and tramadol is not meant to be used in people with liver problems unless in small doses such as 100mg max per day
