Does ultram cause liver damage?
I can't find any literature on it, the little I did find indicates that it is safer than tylenol? Can anyone elaborate?

After reading about it, I would really think Tylenol is a lot safer. They both are hard on the liver, but Ultram (Tramdol) has more side effects. I always ask the pharmacist; they know more than my doctor most of the time......
"Tramadol (e.g., Ultram): Nausea and vomiting are common side effects associated with the use of tramadol, along with dizziness, sedation, restlessness, diarrhea or constipation, dyspepsia, weakness, diaphoresis, seizures, and respiratory depression. It should be used cautiously in hepatic or renal impairment."

"Acetaminophen (Tylenol): Has few side effects and is probably the safest non-opioid for most people. Use with caution in people with underlying hepatic or renal disease; renal dysfunction may be associated with prolonged use."

The one thing about Ultram is that you do not have to take as much of it to get relief the way you would Tylenol. I have taken it off and on since 1997 because of chronic pain due to arthritis. I normally do not have to take more than 1 or 2 tablets on a day when the pain is at it`s worst. You cannot drink alcohol or have any type of liver or kidney disease if you take it.

Im not sure, but as far as i know, almost all medications have the potential to be hepatotoxic (or liver damaging) at a certain level. for tramadol, the only usual adverse reactions that I know of are vertigo, headache, nausea and vomiting, a low blood pressure and sweating.

Now, Ultram is one med that you should NEVER take with out eating. Food helps the meds work in your body. If you have liver damage or drink alcohol you should not take Untram or any pain meds.

if you have a bad liver, anything with acetaminophen is going to be bad for you.....ask your liver doctor before taking pain or other medications. be sure your doctor is aware of your concerns regarding your liver. medication and a bad liver do not mix.

I am a nurse in Family Practice but I also have a friend who had a shoulder injury and has been on Ultram long term. I have done quite a bit of research on this and yes, it can cause liver damage if use for an extended length of time. Ultram can actually become very addicting as well. Plus, if you drink alcohol, you may damage your liver even more. Although Tylenol is not addicting, if used long term or in large amounts, it can cause severe liver damage as well. The first question we ask patients with elevated liver functions is "how much Tylenol do you use and how much alcohol do you drink?" Short term use is fine but be careful!!
