Does Tramadol cause liver damage?
8 Feb 2012
Yes it is okay to one 50 mg of tramadol at bedtime as it does not have codeine in it. I was on Tramadol for 3 years. It is not derived from the opiate codeine but works on the opioid receptors in a different way to bring you pain relief. Tramadol also does not contain acetaminophen or Tylenol which is the real liver killer when consumed in high doses. Tramacet or Ultracet does have Tylenol; however. As long as you do not have acute liver failure, the Tramadol should not cause you any liver problems but you need to know that your liver is functioning OK before taking any medications (over the counter and prescription) as they are all processed through the liver in some fashion. To get absolute confirmation that it is okay to take the Tramadol, call a pharmacist at Walgreens, CVS, or your local grocery store. They will tell you for certain if it is okay for you to take the Tramadol.
