Tramadol is among the newest pain relievers in the market that is effective at treating moderate pain to severe pain. This has led to doctors prescribing this medication for patients who are suffering from fibromyalgia. It has shown positive results for most people.
Tramadol has two main advantages in treating fibromyalgia. Firstly, it is an opioid, a class of drug that can help to prevent the interaction between the neurotransmitters in the brain and changing the way that your body will receive pain. As a result, Tramadol will not carry the risks of dependency and addiction that some opioids would.
In addition, tramadol does not have any serious side effects. But of course, this does not mean that there are none. People who take the medication frequently have complained of sleepiness and mental fog especially if they are taking high doses.
