No: The FDA has warned consumers against Hydroxycut in all forms. It has been shown on occasion to cause liver problems and since tramadol is mainly metabolized in the liver I advise against taking the hydroxycut with tramadol. Here is the FDA's Hydroxycut link: http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm152152.htm
