How can I minimize the side effects of ConZip?

To minimize or prevent side effects from the pain medication ConZip (tramadol), take it exactly as your doctor prescribes. Don't take more ConZip, or take it more often, than instructed. Except in an emergency, don't stop using ConZip without talking to your doctor first. Stopping suddenly can cause withdrawal symptoms.

If ConZip makes you feel dizzy or lightheaded when you get up after sitting or lying down for a while, change your position slowly. Rest your feet on the floor for a few minutes before standing.

If constipation is a problem while you're taking ConZip, dietary changes might help. Eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, particularly bran, and getting regular exercise may make it easier to move your bowels. You can also ask your doctor about taking a laxative and/or stool softener.
