I took Ultram for a while and getting off of the medication was horrible....I have chills and sweating, restless legs and creepy crawlies...I could not concentrate and my heart was pounding in my chest for 4 days stright...It was the worst...If you can talk to your doctor before taking this medicine...espically the er ultram....It is highly addictive and despite what people say it is hard to get off of.
If you read the contraindications on the paper insert that comes with Ultram (all versions of Ultram) its use is contraindicated in cases of people with liver disease. If I were you, I would find another doctor as this one doesn't seem to know what's what when it comes to what is safe for people with liver disease to use. Tramadol is a fairly toxic drug anyway, meaning that it has a lot more of a chance of causing adverse reactions in people than many other types of pain meds. I really can't figure out what his rationale was in prescribing it for you.
