In brief: Possibly, but ...
Tramadol has some serotonergic activity, like antidepressants.
Recently, pharmacies started warning doctors not to use these two together because of the risk of too much serotonin. If you take tramadol for pain, it can possibly help her depression too. If you ask your dr. To prescribe tramadol for depression, he might have a problem, because it is a narcotic.

In brief: Can treat, cure diff
Tramadol is an excellent antidepressant.
It is helpful with those that have pain associated with depression; the functional somatic syndrome. It's closest molecular cousin is venlafaxine. Generally starts seratonin norepinephrine at 150 mg but can go up to 400, i difficult pain, mood problems I have some people up to100 mg 3 times per day. Pain and mood can be linked, excellent for fibromyalgi.
