My GP has started me on slow release tramadol after I reported that 50mg tablets were not working. I have dose of 100mg twice day but can ' top up ' with tablets if I need. I'm getting horrendous bloating and loose bowels. Is this the drug or have I picked up an unrelated bug ? I've still got back pain and now its compounded with agonising cramps. And we had a big storm with no power all day. Freezing cold with frequent toilet trips . not my idea of a good way to spend a Friday.
I'd like to know some tramadol experiences and whether this gut problem is common . cheere
