Hi i have looked in to this and hair loss is a very rare long term side effect of taking tramadol. Please read the paragraph below;
The severity of the side effects of tramadol should not be ignored despite the fact it must be prescribed by a medical authority. Tramadol can have serious long-term side effects that include loss of bone mass, hair loss or irregular spotting during the menstrual cycle. For this reason, long term treatment should be critically analyzed and a possible replacement prescription should be administered if necessary.
It is interesting that you have reported this as i too have suffered hair loss for about the last year or 2 and i never thought it could be due to my meds. Luckily i have long thick hair so it hasn't been a problem so far...
I think you should consult your doctor about this. Good luck
