Common Side Effects of Ultram (Tramadol Hcl)

Ultram (tramadol) is a pain reliever (analgesic) used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain in adults. Ultram is available as 50 mg oral tablets. Ultram is available in generic form. Side effects of Ultram include:

  • agitation,
  • nervousness,
  • anxiety,
  • seizures (convulsions),
  • skin rash,
  • dizziness,
  • spinning sensation,
  • hallucinations,
  • fever,

  • nausea,
  • vomiting,
  • upset stomach,
  • diarrhea,
  • constipation,
  • loss of coordination,
  • headache,
  • drowsiness, and

Good pain management practice dictates that the dose of Ultram be individualized according to patient need using the lowest beneficial dose. Ultram may interact with other drugs including monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) and other antidepressant medications. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of Ultram in pregnant women. Ultram should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Ultram passes into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Breastfeeding while taking Ultram is not recommended.
