Can Tramadol Cause Problems In The Stomach?

I apeear to have some kind of gastric problem going on, not sure what yet but have indegestion very frequently and have terrible stomach pains and wind at night. The pain seems to ease with passsing wind but then comes back again this lasts for hours. As iam using tramadol at the moment i want to know if this is causing more acid or if anything in it is causing more stomach pain.

Answer

Tramadol is known to have GI side effects including heart burn, indigestion, constipation and/or diarrhea. So, while it's likely that the medication is causing your discomfort it's hard to tell exactly what the pain is coming from. It would be a good idea to discuss this symptom with your doctor so that you can come up with a plan to address both your pain and stomach issues.
