I've recently been prescribed Tramadol as I was fed up with the amount of paracetamol that I take each day in the form of Co-codamol (up to 8 tablets a day), as well as the fact they've stopped really working on the pain, so I expect I'm tolerant to them now. Anyway the Tramadol, it's awful. It makes me really dopey and I've fallen asleep in the day 3 times in the last week - even missing a meeting one day. I was using Tramadol instead of co-codamol at first but they didn't really hit the pain so I've been alternating the Tramadol with co-codamol, as prescribed but feel like I've been in a trance for over a week. Does anyone else mix these two painkillers or have a strange reaction to Tramadol? Thanks. Happy MOnday!
