|I the human have been taking tramadol for seven or more years with no ill effects. I do get liver values tested every six months but other than that, it is apparently a very safe drug.
There is evidence that it can be addictive, much as the manufacturers would like that not to be true, and, if I am really late on my next dose I get the shakes, fever and just plain do not feel good.
Interestingly enough, over the years I have not had any lessening of the pain relief I get from it and have not had to increase the dosage, which can be a problem with narcotics.
However, both my physician and I agree that it works great for me and I would not be functioning nearly as well as I do without it, and it is MUCH safer than narcotics.
