My husband has almost all of the side effects of Tramadol. I'm guessing 3/4s of them. The only thing I didn't see on there was anything about how it effects your liver.
I was on 400 mg a day for 10 yrs. It didn't do a thing to my liver.
Hi can you clarify the daily dose your husband is taking? Tramadol is metabolised by the liver & if taken in doses higher than recommended, liver failure can result. However, as Kaismama has said, it is generally quite safe in this area. I also used to take it & i had no adverse effects pertaining to my liver
They both are right. Tramadol is given to people with cirrhosis.What ever you put in your body goes through the liver.
You will be absolutely fine!!
Being a person without much of a Liver the only analgesic I am allowed is Fentanyl due to it's low metabolic load. Pretty much all these medications use the same cytochrome p450 metabolic pathway and the dosage is micrograms per hour which makes it tolerable for me. I haven't been allowed to take even as much as a single acetaminophen in 18 months
My doctor won't give me tramadol,much less fentanyl.
