Because it has a mood elevating effect along with the pain med effect.
Hi elf62; I find your body's reaction to tramadol quite intresting, and a little
unusual. I was prescribed Tramadol once, a few years back and could not tolerate it. I got a bad reaction due to other meds I take, and still have a strong bad feeling
towards it! Everybody's so different... Take good care of yourself... dd*
Tramadol is a synthetic opiate, and it has SSRI properties, which will both 'make you feel good'. This is why it can become habit forming/addictive.
