I agree with jengre, yes indeed it can cause constipation. Best wishes, Lara.

And Metamucil works great, I take it every morning in my coffee. Hope this helps. My doc said this is ok and ok to use it everyday. You are both so right. Although Tramadol is not a true narcotic it acts as a "booster" for narcotics, I can't think of the right word I'm looking for here but it does help narcotics work. If a full dose is too much you can cut down and use less and it will still help with constipation.
It helps with other things as well so it's worth it. I don't have the problem anymore. I take metamucil every night and sometimes morning if necessary. Yes it does. If I miss a day it's ok, but try not to.

Some kid wants to get high, it doesn't get me high, it takes away the pain so I can sort of have a normal life. Because of people abusing, (kids) the person that needs it is suffering, not right for us that don't abuse. I have osteoarthritis and have been taking Vicodin at times for pain when needed 30 pills last me about 6 months, 1/4 or 1/2 only and it is the only thing that works and with all this talk about these pills, the doctor can only prescribe Tramadol and it doesn't work nearly as Vicodin, I need to take more. EDDIE. Something is wrong with this whole situation, I live in pain.
Hi Gin, Are you looking for this description, Tramadol is a synthetic opioid analgesic, even though doctors don't think it's a narcotic, it is described as narcotic like and can actually be a bit pernicious as it acts as an SNRI once it hits the brain, making it more addictive for some people than oxycodone. Sad, but true. Wild stuff, yet it works for pain and depression, a doctor must taper her patients off of it just like a "true narcotic." Hope I wasn't rude to you Gin! Your friend, Lara. And docs are handing it out right and left as if it's nothing, when I've seen and "talked to" hundreds of people that are horribly addicted to Tramadol or Ultram. (I'm not trying to be the least bit disrespectful Gin, just giving you my experience after being on this site for four years) I've seen too many posts about getting off of it.

Hi, i'm interested to read this feed, i don't take Tramadol any more, but i suffered with constipation while taking it. I didn't realise it was a common side effect. But, i didn't eat much then.
