Advise Watching for Hypoglycemia Right After Starting Tramadol
You'll hear that tramadol is associated with severe hypoglycemia.
There seems to be a 3-fold higher risk of hospitalization for hypoglycemia in patients using tramadol compared to those on codeine.
But there's no proof that tramadol is to blame. And the absolute risk is low...less than one in 1000 patients per year taking tramadol.
