Tramadol side effects

Anyone else experience ringing in their ears?
I have had this ringing in my ears for a while now - and recently someone mentioned it might be a side effect from the tramadol.  So has anyone else experienced this?

Tramadol has a bundle of side effects including addiction....hard to withdraw from due to their narcotic and anti-depressent qualities...i have heard people complain of alot of side effects while taking them...i guess i am confused but i thought u had an addiction to norco?

I've been off oxy for 6 months, and alcohol for about 8.
Still using Tramadol - not sure what I am going to do about it - I have serious back pain - but also serious addiction issues, and I still struggle with valium.  I should have kicked them all at once when I went cold turkey on the oxy - it couldn't have been any worse - I was pretty sure I was going to die.  But at the time I was convinced the Tramadol and valium were not an issue - an addicts thinking through and through!

It has been along time since I have taken any of it. But from what I remeber, If I took to many the ringing would happen. as well as some really bad cluster headaches....even vomiting...
Do not know how many you are taking. but that was when I was on the 100mgs. and I would eat 4 at a time... 3or 4 times a days..
hope that helps some....

Yes it can cause ringing in the ears but honestly its one of the lesser things to worry about with tramadol. How many are you taking daily?.

It is hard to kick several drugs simultaneously....kicking them one by one is what most people do...kicking the most troublesome one first....and sounds like u r doing that....perhaps u increased the trams to compensate...dont know...just stay on track and do have a long term goal...lots of support here

Sometimes I actually lose count - 200mg slow release a couple times a day (usually crushed) and then anywhere from 6 to 10 or more 50mg.
The ringing is worse sometimes - but haven't paid enough attention to see if it corelates with the amount I've taken

That is too much....u need to pick either that or the benzo/valium to wd from next...how much valium do u take daily...both of those drugs need to be tapered

That is a lot of ultram a day ........ It most likely has to do with the amount you are taking . If you decide to go off the valium and the tramadol try one at a time starting with the tramadol.I am here if you need any help  tramadol is my DOC. I know how hard it is to come off of . It has to be tapered slowly ..... I am here it you need anything.

I don't know - I cut back a bit once and the depression was crazy - like nothing I have ever experienced before, a really dark place - and I don't think I can go back there.  And the thing with the valuim is if I don't take it - I don't sleep.
I know, I know - denial - I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around this - to me tramadol was no big deal - the oxy was the problem - now I have to give this up also?  All that runs through my head is "but then you will have nothing?" and my anxiety goes through the roof.
Part of me wants to just flush everything - go through the withdrawal - I should suffer for being so stupid - and then be done with it, and then the other part of me just wants to continue on - keep fooling myself that all is well, I'm not drinking or using the hard drugs - so I am good.
Sorry for rambeling on - just feeling sorry for myself I guess

deep down I am terrified - I don't know whether I am coming or going most of the time.
Yes I know they have to go - but if it were only that easy.
I will take any info you have avisg - what to expect, how to taper  - did you experience a really dark depression - not just your run of the mill depression - but the I want to jump in front of  a bus kind.  The physical stuff doesn't scare me near as much as that.

There is an anti-depressent receptor mechanism to the trams which makes them hard to wd from...the depression is a bumber from what i have heard...my friend wd from them and made it tho...she got on an anti depressent first and let it kick in...tapered and quit...avis can help...pm her or she will answer u later ..that was her doc
