Probably not.: Depending upon the reaction probably not. While true allergic reactions are very rare with tramadol, like any medication, the possibility exists. More often patients experience side effects, e.g., nausea, sleepiness and dizziness. This has some implication for what alternative medication may be helpful and tolerated.

You may: benefit from other prescription drug classes. Many people can't tolerate tramadol due to side effects. Always consult a physician when taking medications for pain. Other alternative therapies exist. Try TENS, Acupuncture, gentle manual therapy.
