Yes on both counts. It is an opoid that was previously thought to be NON addictive, but has proven otherwise and it also acts like an SSNRI, and that could be causing the mood swings. Please do NOT stop this medication suddenly if you have been on it a while or are at a high dose. Talk to your doctor is you are having problems on it, so you can safely be tapered off if you are having problems or think you are dependent on it.

I agree with patti on both questions. Tramadol can also cause seizures if stopped cold turkey.

I concur. Not only is it addictive and may cause mood swings, as Patti indicated, could provoke seizures if stopped abruptly.
Please be safe and discuss this with your doctor.

since it has opiod properties (as I remember) then it has the ability to cause either one of those things to happen, if they continue or get worse you may need to discuss this with your doctor best wishes, Billy (caringsonbj) free discount card
