I have just been given Dolpar Tramadol 200mg Is this the same? I did experience a restless none sleeping first night but can already feel a slight difference in my pain.I have also just been prescribed Vimovo for the same sacroilliac pain which I have had for 10 years without ease. However when I read the side effects of both these drugs it is a bit scary.
Remember that the drug companies have to list all the possible side effects even if only a few have experienced a particular one. While tramadol is an opaite-like medication which you can become dependent upon, it will help the pain above and beyond the Vimovo. The Vimovo is an NSAID that will help any inflammation associated with your condition, it also has the added benefit of a stomach deacidifier to help protect your gastrointestinal tract.
Take the tramadol as needed and use the vimovo as prescribed. If it relieves your chronic pain, it is worth the risk of a few side effects that may not even happen.
