I was prescribed tramadol to deal with my pain. It helps with the pain, but I feel like I am high when I take it. I feel wide awake, but will nod off. I also am more prone to impulsiveness. So much so that I no longer allow myself to shop on days I take it. I have tried other meds like darvaset, hydrocodone, prednisone, flexerol, and every otc you can imagine but they dont help. I only take it if the pain is bad enough to severly limit my mobility or thought process, but i hate the mind altering effects. Does anyone else have to deal with this if so any suggestions or pointer?
