I'm not sure I'd take Tramadol if you have epilepsy. I'm not sure whether it's because of it's opiod effects or it's SNRI effects, but it lowers the threshold for seizures in people that have them. From a personal perspective, I wouldn't take it at all. I became very dependent on them and they actually caused me to have a few seizures.
