A result!

I was prescribed Tramadol ages ago, over a year, and have never taken it because the list of side effects is long and unpleasant and I knew two people who had to stop taking it. It's a heavy pain killer.

Anyway, I bit the bullet Friday and took one. An hour later I took another(the recommended dose).

No side effects at all that I am aware of. And it is very good for stopping pain, almost completely. I was a little concerned at how much better I felt mentally, thinking it may be the drug hyping me, until it was pointed out to me that I was probably feeling good because I had stopped hurting.....

Like the NSAIDS I cannot take these drugs everyday. At least I know I can switch between the NSAIDS, Co Codomol and the Tramadol.

Phew!
