I've been taking pethidine to control my pain but I don't like being on it. I saw my GP today with a view to switching over to Palexia, but instead she has put me on to Tramadol.
I know that I've had Tramadol before years ago, and I know that I came off it for a good reason, but I cannot remember why. However, since I've got home I've been reading up on it and to be honest I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off staying on the pethidine!
What experiences has everybody else had? What are the main side effects? My main worry is that there seems to be a seizure risk involved, particularly when it's combined with the anti-depressants I take; has anybody ever encountered this? x
