Compared to other medications used to treat pain, Tramadol has become a highly popular choice in the United States. While there are many benefits of this drug there are also some negative aspects that need to be addressed.
For instance, one of the greatest concerns is that Serotonin Syndrome is caused by Tramadol. Over the past decade, numerous medical studies and clinical trials have been conducted and shown to show this risk to be factual
Serotonin syndrome encompasses a wide range of clinical findings. Mild symptoms may only consist of increased heart rate, shivering, sweating, dilated pupils, myoclonus (intermittent tremor or twitching), as well as over responsive reflexes
Occurrences of Tramadol leading to Serotonin Syndrome are relatively rare but they do happen. If you have real concern re the shivers and any of the above sx I would strongly suggest you contact you Dr. as you may do better on another medication.
