When should I call my doctor if I am taking ConZip?

If you're taking the pain medication ConZip (tramadol), call your doctor immediately if you develop these side effects:
  • fast or slow heartbeat
  • trouble breathing or slowed breathing
  • hives or rash
  • swollen face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs
  • hoarseness
  • difficulty swallowing
  • hallucinations (seeing things or hearing voices that aren't there)
  • seizures
  • confusion
  • dizziness or feeling as if you might faint
  • flu-like symptoms or fever
  • overactive reflexes
  • nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
Also call your doctor if you develop a severe headache, mood changes, drowsiness or sleep problems, constipation, heartburn, sweating or itching while taking ConZip.

Let your doctor know if ConZip isn't controlling your pain, but don't take more of the drug without his or her okay. Likewise, don't stop taking ConZip except in the case of an emergency; talk to your doctor first: Stopping the drug abruptly could bring on withdrawal symptoms.

If you need to begin taking a new drug or supplement, check in with your doctor first. Some medications interact with ConZip. You also should call your doctor if you become pregnant while taking ConZip (or would like to become pregnant).
