Also i cant sleep when im on them but when i lay in bed it feels so good. is this normal?
Euphoria is one of the side effects. Tramadol is a centrally acting synthetic opioid analgesic. Although its mode of action is not completely understood,
from animal tests, at least two complementary mechanisms appear applicable: binding of parent and M1 metabolite to μ-opioid receptors and weak inhibition of reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin. So it's basically acts like a Antidepressant for some people. That can become dangerous because the people will start to use the Tramadol just to be happy and become addicted or abuse the Tramadol. I would talk to your doctor about it as that's a dangerous side effect. As long as you take the prescription as prescribed you should be okay as long as you talk with your doctor about it. Hope this helps! Good luck to you!
Tramadol is not quite as strong as hydrocodone but it usually stops my pain with two tablets, four times daily, which is the maximum daily limit. Could you be happy simply because you're experiencing pain relief? I do find I'm happier too when I take them but I think it's because I'm no longer in pain. Aside from that, it does relax you because it's an opioid and CNS depressant. Not sure why you can't sleep, though. Could that be because maybe you've had too much caffeine or are worried about something? Hope this helps. :-)
