Dangers of this medication include potential side effects. Some of the most common side effects include:
 
Although side effects of tramadol tend to be minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider, there are some serious side effects that require immediate medical attention.

Other warnings apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies (including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives).
