Does anyone else have extreme sweating on Tramadol slow release tablets.  It is so bad that I have to tie up my hair a it is soaking wet along with my arms, back and legs.  I am cold to the touch, but my skin is wet.  I take 150 mg twice daily.

Hello HeatherandSteve,

Im an not a doctor nor an expert, but by surfing a bit on the web I found out that the sweating caused by Tramadol slow release tablets might not be a good sign and you should see your GP:

  • Serotonin syndrome is a possibly fatal syndrome that can be caused by tramadol extended-release tablets. Your risk may be greater if you take tramadol extended-release tablets with certain other medicines (eg, "triptans," MAOIs, antidepressants). Symptoms may include agitation; confusion; hallucinations; coma; fever; fast or irregular heartbeat; tremor; excessive sweating; and nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Contact your doctor at once if you have any of these symptoms.

I really hope is not this at all, but I advice you to go to your GP asap adn tell him what is going on, even ask to change the meds if posible.

Well that is my personal unexperienced advice, I don't know if someone else out there has a better advice or more experience. 

Hope you feel better,

Gilda

I have taken Tramadol in the past, and ended up in hospital as I was violently sick, and had such a very bad headache they actually thought my shunt (for acquired hydrocephalus) had blocked.  I was completely out of it for a few days and was warned never, ever to take Tramadol again.

I was on Tramadol for years but came off them last year as they just weren't helping with the pain any more. Within a week of stopping them, my brain felt less foggy.

My gp then put me on Butec patches which worked well but then I ended up sleeping 20 hours a day and doc reckoned they were causing it so I'm almost off them now.
