Side Effects of Tramadol/Acetaminophen

Common Side Effects of Tramadol/Acetaminophen

Tramadol/acetaminophen has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, side effects occurring in a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to those that occur in another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
 
In these studies, the most common tramadol/acetaminophen side effects included:
 
  • Constipation -- in up to 6 percent of people

  • Increased sweating -- up to 4 percent

  • Dry mouth -- up to 2 percent (see Ultracet and Dry Mouth)
  • Insomnia -- up to 2 percent
  • Prostate problems -- up to 2 percent.
     
Other side effects of tramadol/acetaminophen are possible.
