It is not a usual problem. The most typical side effects with taking Tramadol are nausea, vomiting, sweating, itching and constipation sometimes drowsiness. Unless you could not sleep because of one of the listed, it is not typical to not be able to sleep after taking Tramadol.
Hi, i agree, it is unusual for Tramadol to cause insomnia when first starting it. It is much more common to experience lethargy and generally sleeping more than usual. It is known that Tramadol can cause insomnia when someone has been taking it for a long time & at high doses.
The first time I took it (about 7 years ago), I took a 50mg dose before going to bed, and had insomnia so bad that I didn't use it again for months. Since then, I have usually taken it only during the morning. This doesn't seem to be a typical effect, so it may just be my individual reaction.
