For those who have been following, I went to the doctor last Thursday and he was happy that we've found something that works for sleep(trazodone) and decided to start working on my pain issues. He gave me a script from Tramadol. He recommended that I start it on the weekend as it could experience tiredness and dizzyness for the first 24-48. Boy did it make me feel wierd. I was tired but couldn't sleep and was in a daze. I only took the minimum dosage. I did learn that I need to take it with food otherwise I get very naseaus. My question is this... Even taking it yesterday for the second day I was still out of it and had trouble functioning. Does this go away? I didn't take it today as I work fulltime and can't be a medicated zombie at work and the way I felt the past 2 days I won't drive if I feel like that. I did work well for the pain and wish I could have taken it this morning but was afraid to because of the side effects. I need to know if they go away with time.
