Tramadol is best known to work on the central nervous system (CNS) and brain by altering the way in which they respond to pain. It is also known to influence the neurotransmitter chemical, serotonin, which is responsible for regulating body functions such as sleep. Serotonin is involved in preventing rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep, yet it is a precursor to melatonin which is the main hormone involved in sleep. So, while it seems to both induce sleep and keep you awake, low levels of this chemical in the brain are known to cause sleep difficulties.
Studies have shown that when using Tramadol for sleep, nightly doses significantly increased the duration of stage 2 periods of sleep. Yet, whilst this medication induces drowsiness, which can assist in sleep onset, it is not commonly known as a treatment for insomnia or sleep disturbances. Tramadol is best reserved for judicious use in pain relief. Insomnia treatment is more of a secondary or off-label benefit.
This pain medication is generally well-tolerated as per the host tramadol online reviews in which the minimal adverse effects are highlighted. There are, however, certain pre-existing conditions that could prevent the use of this medication, such as asthma. Other precautions when using Tramadol for sleep include concomitant use of medications that have similar mechanisms of action to this opioid analgesic. In other words, avoid taking other opioids with it. The Use of Tramadol should desist if an allergic reaction is observed or at the onset of respiratory problems.
It would appear that this pain reliever is useful in the senior population affected by osteoarthritis because, unlike non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, the Tramadol capsule does not have the negative effect of causing peptic ulcer disease. Furthermore, it is not known to aggravate hypertension or congestive heart failure. However, like all medications that affect the CNS, the elderly are especially cautioned as dizziness and drowsiness may be in effect and particularly heightened in seniors. This can be avoided by careful administration of a lower dose and if well tolerated, taking it for a limited time only when needed.
