I don't take tramadol every day, only when my knee starts hurting, I take 100mg in the am and works great on pain, lasts all day. If my knee does not hurt, I have taken 50mg at night to help with sleep and it works.
What I also noticed is that I am NOT hungry come lunch/dinner time when 100mg is taken in the am. Which is a great added bonus!!
Has this been used as a diet aid?? No other side effects...
