Ryzolt Side Effects

Nausea, constipation, and dizziness are some of the most commonly reported side effects of Ryzolt. Although many problems with the drug tend to be minor and are generally easy to treat, there are some potentially serious side effects that require immediate medical attention. Notify your healthcare right away if you develop serious side effects while taking this medicine, such as seizures, hallucinations, or difficulty breathing.

An Introduction to Ryzolt Side Effects

As with any medicine, Ryzolt™ (tramadol ER) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, some people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in many cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.

Common Side Effects of Ryzolt

Ryzolt has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking Ryzolt were documented and then compared to the side effects that occurred in a similar group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients) or taking the short-acting version of tramadol.
 
Based on these studies, the most common, bothersome (but not usually dangerous) side effects of Ryzolt included:
 
  • Nausea -- in up to 16 percent of people
  • Constipation -- up to 13 percent
  • Dizziness -- up to 10 percent
  • Drowsiness -- up to 7 percent.
