My 56 yr old husband has been on tramadol HCL 150 mg 2x daily for about 3 years for chronic knee pain he started to have ringing in both ears about 2 months ago and now takes a sleep aid to get to sleep. worried about the tramadol overall health effect.
I'm having ringing in my left ear constantly since starting Tramadol late last year for post-surgical/chronic foot pain. It's very annoying and is also effecting my sleep. Feel I may need to stop the med, but it really helps my pain especially after particularly long days at work. My doctor doesn't seem to think it's related to the med, but I can't really pinpoint anything else that is causing the problem. Take 2 50mg tabs nightly.
Hope there's a solution for your husband AND me! :)
I have been taking tramadol 50mg 4-6x Daily for 5 years now. After about one year taking them I began to get ringing in my ears. Doctors initially refused to believe it was a side effect as it's not listed with the medication. I feel it's not taken seriously and it would not surprise me if there were many more people suffering like this.
The ringing is endless and I'm 100% it was caused by tramadol.
