I have a terrible time trying to sleep. We've tried sleeping pills and all have reverse effect; I'm up all night! Tramadol also makes me neaseaous. Kaye. I've been taking Tramadol with similar side effects.

I used Tramadol a few years ago. It had zero effect on keeping me awake or falling asleep. Even my muscle relaxer doesn't make me sleepy sometimes. I can take it and go to work.
