I am takine Tramadol for pain as well as Ambien. If I sleep soundly enough, the pain doesn't keep me up. I see the doctor today. I hope he has done some research since our last visit.
I have a current 'scirpt for Tramadol -- 50 mgs. up to 3 x's a day - but it really doesn't help enough for me to keep taking it. I thinkI was on it too long is why.
I've often wondered why not even 1 of the docs that I have seen, have never put me on any actual sleep meds. I don't take things like
Ambien, but I do take 2 anti-depresants with heavy side effects of drowsiness. I guess it's time to find out why!!!
Thank you so very much for sharing yourinfo with me!!!! ~
