The pain pretty much renders me useless so I am taking the maximum dosage which is two pills at a time. I have begun to notice faint images or hallucinations in my peripheral vision. When I try to look directly at the images they disappear. At this time the images only exist in my peripheral vision. I am not emotionally disturbed or upset by the hallucinations because I know they are not real and all they seem to be are flickers of unidentifiable images. It is not as if I have ghosts riding shotgun on my shoulders. Oh, I have noticed that when I am staring at something like my textured drywall or textured bath countertops in very poor lighting the images seem to start moving & evolving and then they reset before starting to move & evolve all over again. I am asking all of these questions because I wonder if the hallucinations I am seeing are more likely to be caused by the tramadol or more likely to be caused by my very painful infection, or more likely to be caused by a combination of the drugs and the pain so I will never really know the true answer. Either way, Thank God for tramadol because if I didn't have that drug I do not know how I could possibly handle the pain. Thanks in advance for any thoughts, ideas or opinions you can share with me. Best regards to everyone
Hallucinations are considered a common side effect of Tramadol.
I know what you are talking about and it's disconcerting.
I feel like when my brain is relaxed at night, it's more common. Staring off into space makes it worse.
Just tell yourself it's the drugs.
Read below Tramadol for Health Care Professionals.
They have an easy to read full list of side effects.
There is also a section for drug interactions with other medication.
I have taken tramadol for many years, mostly in low doses and have never had an effect like that. How long have you been taking them daily and what is your total dose per day? What other drugs if any are you on?
I have found these pills to be complex and powerful with both an effect on pain and mood neuro transmitters really like several pills in one.
